Coutin School is a private Non-Public School (NPS), located in the west San Fernando Valley. We are dedicated to providing a personalized education for our students who have special learning and emotional needs.
We promote effective communicators and problem solvers who will become productive individuals and independent thinkers in the communities in which they live and serve.
We achieve our mission through small classroom size, individualized attention, excellent teaching, skilled support staff, and a therapeutic component to help students deal with their emotional needs.
Academics at Coutin are in alignment with California State standards and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) “A-G” standards, which are necessary to meet graduation requirements. We offer upper math and science, foreign language, English literature, history, and physical education, as well as a variety of electives including art, ceramics, consumer math, digital yearbook, drama, and psychology.
Once students have completed the necessary classes, diplomas are issued through LAUSD or the student’s home charter school. Students can expect a senior year very much like their public school counterparts. We offer Grad Night, Prom and a wonderful graduation ceremony to culminate our students’ high school experience.
Many of our students go on to Community College and have achieved great success. We also encourage our current students to enroll at their local community college and take a college class while still enrolled in high school to help them prepare for their futures.
Coutin School is proud of its academic rigor, as we watch our students grow through their achievements.
