AME-Small Learning Community


The vision of the Arts, Media, and Entertainment Small Learning Community (AME) is to provide a creative, challenging, nurturing environment that offers bright and talented students preparation for higher education and a career in the arts. AME will support the foundation on which students will graduate from high school as life-long learners who will enrich their lives as well as those of their community.

AME becomes a reality through the Creative and Liberal Arts Studies domain and the expansion of the School for Advanced Studies (SAS). Linking to AME within the SAS are the Gardena High School Foreign Language Magnet School and Southern California International Business Association (SCIBA). These well-established programs, which have thrived on campus for a number of years, will enable Gardena High School to enhance AME’s presence. A rigorous academic curriculum, allowing students to tap-into and develop their creativity, will offer exploration and preparation for career opportunities through these pathways: Dance, Drama, Technical Theatre, Music (Instrumental and Vocal), and Fine Arts.

AME will embrace a Humanitas philosophy to ensure that students have a rich, interdisciplinary background in the humanities and liberal arts. The essence of AME’s design will be to meet the academic and artistic needs of our students. The rigorous curriculum features college preparatory A-G requirements as well as a comprehensive arts education program, inspiring self-expression, promoting critical thinking, and instilling academic excellence. Focus in a major AME pathway will strengthen student exposure to all facets of the arts. Our program is developed and designed in response to the rising demand for high-level academic students who possess talent and interest in the arts, and will further their aspirations among the finest art institutes, universities, and colleges.
