SLJ is a public college-preparatory school that opened in 2004 with a focus on issues of law and justice. As part of a challenging and exciting four-year sequence, students learn about and experiment with law in their own school, law in their city, state and country, and law around the world and throughout history. The school is comprised of 100 students per grade, most of whom are low-income students of color. SLJ is providing these historically underserved students with the high quality, rigorous education they deserve, so that when – not if – they move on to college, our students will soar.
"[The school] benefits from strong leaders with a clear educational vision, a hand-picked faculty, and community partners that...[contribute] time and resources."
