About Us

Judith F. Baca Arts Academy is a state of the art elementary school located in the heart of Watts. We serve about 650 students from Early Transitional Kindergarten to 6th Grade students. Ninety percent of the population is Latino/Hispanic students and about ten percent of our students are African American students.
Our school’s vision is to embrace the holistic approach of every child that attends JB Arts Academy. In order for each student to succeed, we set high standards and expectations for them as we focus not only on their academic needs but rather consider their physical, social, and emotional needs. This is to better equip each student to be college and career ready. We do this through providing opportunities to infuse the Dual Language Program and emphasize the Arts as an integral part of our curriculum.
