Inglewood school reopens after reconstruction

Students of La Tijera K-8 School celebrated the start of 2012 with a brand new educational complex.

More than two years after the demolition of the old building, the new school, located on the corner of La Cienega and Fairview Blvds., opened its doors on January 4th.

Since 2009, students were housed in portable classrooms while construction of the new facility took place.

There are currently 389 students enrolled, but it’s expected the number will increase in the new school year.

The modern-looking school has a new state-of-the-art library, an outdoor amphitheater and classrooms with high-end electronic teaching equipment.


Steve Donohue is the school’s principal. He has been overseeing the school and its student body during the past three years and throughout the construction phase of the new building.

The Inglewood Unified School District funded the project through a bond measure passed by Inglewood voters in 1998.
