Who is Grace Hopper?

About Us

Grace Hopper STEM Academy (GHSA) is an Independent, Public STEM Middle School, that began as an all girls’ school, in September, 2013. Currently GHSA is the only public middle school, in the state of California, with a 23-bed dormitory (Casa Ladera) designed to meet the unique needs of girls in the foster care system. In 2015 GHSA was proud to begin educating young boys on its second campus (housed at Faithful Central Bible Church). Both schools are located in Inglewood and are less than one mile from each other. The leadership of our educational program fully embraces separate but equal learning opportunities on both campuses. We further believe that we have the responsibility of working with the whole child, and all of the elements in the development of that child. We partner with the child’s parents in our efforts to improve the quality of our students’ lives and educational experiences.

The academic, physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being of the students are paramount in our efforts to transition them to the right path to higher education. GHSA's focus is on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) as well as Project Lead The Way (PLTW). We are committed to combining academic rigor and engineering with social responsibility and mastery of the process of scientific inquiry, during their middle school years in order to effectively transition our students to high school, college and future careers.

Our school utilizes practical, innovative and powerful teaching methods to ignite in each student a passion for knowledge and a love for learning. Our teacher/student ratio averages 1/20. Maintaining small class sizes is a key factor in creating the best learning environment for all our students.

Our goal is to prepare our students to compete at the highest levels for admission to premiere high schools while embracing the love of learning. Grace Hopper STEM Academy combines academic rigor with social responsibility; coupled with the ability to master the process of scientific inquiry while developing a strong sense of self and a moral and ethical character (following the 6 Pillars of Character).
