Dear Families & Friends of Playa del Rey,
Welcome to Playa del Rey Elementary School for Advanced Studies, the Jewel of the Westside! The School for Advanced Studies (SAS) at Playa del Rey Elementary School is a special program designed to support the development of gifted and high achieving students within our school setting. Schools must undertake a rigorous review process to achieve SAS status. Teachers and administrators at SAS schools are required to participate in additional professional development and training, and individual students must meet the same eligibility criteria as LAUSD’s Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program. As participants, students receive instruction with added complexity and depth designed to keep them engaged and challenged. Starting in kindergarten, any eligible student who resides within LAUSD boundaries may apply to Playa del Rey’s SAS Program on a space-available basis. Unlike the GATE magnet programs, no transportation is provided for SAS students...more
