Current and prospective families are invited to visit The Guidance Charter School (GCS), 1125 East Palmdale Boulevard, during National School Choice Week. The Open House which will be held January 27-31 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. will serve continental breakfast on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:15 to 10:15 a.m. Students will also participate in poster and essay contests about why they love GCS, write appreciation letters to their parents and dance in morning Zumba exercise classes.

The events will be part of 5,500+ independently-planned ones taking place during National School Choice Week 2014 – the nation’s largest-ever celebration of educational opportunity.

The Guidance Charter School is a tuition-free charter school that strives to empower every student with essential skills and knowledge in both classroom-based and independent study. GCS serves 310 students in grades K-6. For more information, visit www.thegcs.org.

“National School Choice Week gives The Guidance Charter School an opportunity to celebrate our students, their parents, and our teachers,” said Dr. Peter Palacio, principal of GCS. “We hope the entire community will celebrate National School Choice Week, and the successes of our school, along with us.”

“We’re thrilled that The Guidance Charter School is participating in National School Choice Week,” said Andrew Campanella, NSCW president. “We hear a lot about education in the news, but the students, teachers, and school leaders at GCS remind us that every single day, there are great things happening in schools of choice across America.”

National School Choice Week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for children – including traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling. For more information, visit www.schoolchoiceweek.com.
