About Our School
Welcome to Synergy Quantum Academy!
Our hope is that the information contained in this School Accountability Report Card (SARC) will provide a clear idea of what our school offers our students and community.
Synergy Quantum Academy opened its doors on September 7, 2011 to 400 freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. In 2018-19, we serve 540 students in grades 9-12. We are one of two small public schools located on the Dr. Maya Angelou Community High School campus in South Los Angeles. As a S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) focused high school, our goal is to prepare our students to serve as innovators in these fields as they move through college and career.
Our dedicated faculty and staff focus on developing Synergy’s school-wide outcome areas to ensure our program provides a strong platform for student learning and success:
• Critical Thinking
• Problem Solving
We are also mindful of the importance of inter and intrapersonal relationships and expect that our students will work to bring out the best in themselves and each other every day. To this end, we provide rich, comprehensive counseling services to our students, including academic, collegiate and socio-emotional support and/or advising.
Parents play an important role at Synergy Quantum as well and participate in activities such as Parent Conferences (held once every semester), and the monthly Coffee with the Principal. In addition, numerous events such as the Parent Book Club and Ambassador Program are available to all Synergy parents and families and are headed by Synergy’s Family and Community Outreach Manager.
Synergy Quantum’s goal is to provide an outstanding school program and experience for our students. We strive to help our students become caring, confident young people who are skilled critical thinkers and creative innovators who will prove successful in college and career.
