About Us Cafeteria Menu LA'S BEST




The mission of LA's BEST is to provide a safe and supervised after school education, enrichment and recreation program for elementary school children ages 5 to 12 in the City of Los Angeles.

LA’s BEST was created in 1988 by Mayor Tom Bradley to address an alarming rise in the lack of adequate adult supervision of children during the critical hours between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.  At LA’s BEST, children go straight into the program after the last bell rings, without ever leaving school grounds. After the bell rings, students are provided with a nutritious snack, help with their homework, and exciting things to do and learn.  Literacy, math, science, seasonal sports, arts and crafts and health and fitness activities are provided to students throughout the school year.  Additionally, students get opportunities to take special field trips and to attend citywide events throughout the year.
