School for Adults Marks 100 Years

The Long Beach School for Adults marked its 100th anniversary recently with a Saturday celebration at the school.  Teachers, administrators and former students gathered in the school’s auditorium to share memories and success stories.

“We’re celebrating a rich history of providing a multitude of services to thousands of students in this community,” said Principal Matt Saldana.  “Despite the state budget crisis and the many obstacles faced, the program has continued because of dedicated people in the community and the valued teachers.”

Founded in 1913 as part of the Long Beach Unified School District, the School for Adults is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  LBSA offers English as a Second Language Language courses, job skills courses, Family Literacy, and GED testing and preparation.
