Dear Ararat Charter School Families and Students,

I am proud and honored to be the principal of Ararat Charter School! My intent is to support the mission and vision of the school by providing a rigorous and comprehensive education while embracing the ethnic and cultural identity of our students. I’m committed to working collaboratively with all stakeholders (teachers, students, parents, and members of the community) to serve the needs of all our students.
My six years of teaching experience and the juggling of multiple programs, budgets, and deadlines as a Categorical Programs Coordinator in South Los Angeles have taught me the importance of having strong organizational and management skills while maintaining effective interpersonal skills within a school community.

I have a detailed knowledge of the California state standards and understand the importance of a standards-based curriculum. I have completed Guided Language Acquisition Design Tier I, Cognitive Coaching, Adaptive Schooling, Response to Instruction and Intervention, and Strategic Schooling training.  I continually use information from these trainings in my current leadership role. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Educational Administration and Instructional Leadership as well as a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction. I am extremely confident that my educational and career experience has given me the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to support students and staff in reaching their full potential.

We have an amazing group of teachers and support staff at Ararat Charter School who are dedicated and committed to the success of our students. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact any one of our staff members.

You can also contact me personally via phone or email at 818-994-2904 or principal@araratcharterschool.com

Sincerely,

Vahé Boujekian,
Principal
