About Our School
Serrania Charter for Enriched Studies Elementary School is one of the
finest elementary schools in southern California. While it looks and
feels like a conveniently located neighborhood school, it is one of the
best kept secrets in the southwest San Fernando Valley educational
community, ranking in the 95th percentile of like schools in the
district. We are also a California Distinguished School, which puts us
in the top 5% of schools in California. We have approximately 700
students enrolled in our school from numerous and diverse backgrounds
Theresa Wedaa is our new principal this year. Mrs. Wedaa comes to us
from an elementary school in Hollywood where she worked as a coordinator
for the last 3 years. She has lots of enthusiasm for our wonderful
school and is working with the staff and parents to make Serrania one of
the top schools in the Valley! We are looking forward to a great school
year with her as our Principal.
Ms. Aleda Johnston who is our Assistant Principal was added to the
Serrania staff in 2010.
Our hard working office staff is led by Rosalinda Gil and Susan Rodwig,
and our great Janitorial Staff is responsible for the beautiful campus
that we all enjoy.
Serrania Charter for Enriched Studies Elementary is successful because
of our amazing roster of teachers and we LOVE to brag about the fact
that we have three teachers who are Nationally Board Certified. Many
others have been honored for their teaching contributions and they are
truly an amazing group of experienced and caring mentors for the
children. All of the teachers at Serrania are fully credentialed and all
are active participants in ongoing continuing education classes.
Serrania is a “School for Advanced Studies” and we offer both an SAS
program that begins in 3rd grade, as well as the standards based
curriculum for students in our full day Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Our main fundraising body is known as Friends of Serrania or FOS.
This organization is a 501c(3) registered charitable organization
and our fundraising efforts combined with PTA in 10/11 brought in
more than $80,000. Parents and faculty together chose to allocate
the money to the PE, Computer & Art Programs for the 11/12 year, as
well as teachers‘ aides, the Accelerated Reading Program, technology
upgrades for the classes and school maintenance.
Our PTA is the backbone of our school community and has many
different projects throughout the year that work to bring us
together and define us as a group. We are looking forward to another
wonderful year and hope that you will get involved in any way you
