Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies is located in a residential community in the west San Fernando Valley. Haynes competes to maintain its status as the highest quality educational institution available to our surrounding communities. Our intent as an affiliated charter is to preserve our core population while at the same time opening our enrollment to a broader base of students in other communities in order to strengthen the diversity of our school. Over the last five years, our enrollment has steadily increased with a waiting list of 300 non-resident students (TK through fifth grade). We continue to meet the needs of all of our students including high achieving students, English Learners, and students with disabilities. This is accomplished by infusing rigor into our curriculum, technology into the classroom, a music and arts program, collaboratively expanding our STEAM program with our neighboring schools, and providing an environment that meets the needs of all of our students.

At Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies the Staff, students, parents and the surrounding community have created and sustained many environmental, performing arts, physical education, health, and science programs. Our Green Team Beautification Committee has brought environmental awareness and educational programs to the community.

Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies is the first L.A.U.S.D. elementary school to join and adopt the national based program Cool 2 Be Kind Club (C2BK), in collaboration with the El Camino Real Charter High School (ECRCHS). The chapter at ECRCHS was founded by two alumni students from Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies. It is a bully prevention program that focuses on spreading kindness throughout the school and local community.

Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies has experienced growth with community involvement so that all stake holders experience the mission and vision of Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies.
