LearnBoost welcomes Monterey Vista Elementary
Garvey School District (founded in 1892) is a pre-K-8 school district with headquarters located in the city of Rosemead, California. It operates nine pre-K-6 elementary schools, one pre-K-8 elementary school and two intermediate schools (grades 7-8). The district serves more than 6000 students from diverse backgrounds, predominantly Asian and Latin American.
In addition to serving most of the southern portions of the city of Rosemead, the Garvey School District serves parts of the cities of Monterey Park and San Gabriel, as well as part of the unincorporated Los Angeles County community of South San Gabriel. Monterey Vista and Hillcrest elementary schools are located in the city of Monterey Park, while Dewey Avenue and Marshall elementary schools are located in the city of San Gabriel. All other schools in the district are located in the city of Rosemead.
Enrollment in the Garvey School District has been in decline for several years. As a result, one elementary school —the 17-room Dan T. Williams school—has been closed. Since the fall of 2006, the district has had an arrangement with the Los Angeles Community College District allowing East Los Angeles College, which has had increasing enrollment resulting in a shortage of classroom space in recent years, to use the Williams School as a satellite campus.(small .pdf file)
