Los Angeles, CA -- Verbum Dei High School is in financial trouble and the question is what can be done to ensure its doors stay open. Verbum Dei is a well known four-year preparatory school for boys located in Watts. Founded in 1962, the school flourished through the turbulent ‘60s and ‘70s amidst the numerous riots and neighborhood uprisings.
The school has even managed to survive through increasing area gang and drug activity. The current economic downturn however, may prove to be too much for Verbum Dei and has left the school struggling to keep afloat.
