Meet The Staff

Overland has one of the most talented, dedicated, and caring staff you will find in all of Los Angeles. It is no wonder that we have accomplished many great things in recent years. As you journey through this website you will see the complex structure of collaboration as most members serve on a number of committees and share in their talents and ideas on how to continually improve our practice for our students.

One measure of our success is the growth in our API scores over the last few years. Overland’s current API score is 956 and we are ranked among the top schools in Los Angeles. In 2008, Overland was honored the distinction of being a California Distinguished School.
