Home of the Bulldogs, David Starr Jordan High School joined The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools in 2011. Located in Watts and led by Principal Carlos Montes, Jordan is the only high school in Watts that offers an interdisciplinary College Preparatory Program that includes: Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes, an Art Academy, an award winning Athletics Program for girls and boys, as well as a Special Needs Program that meets the complex demands of its exceptional learners. Jordan is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) through 2022, and is proud to serve the entire community and all learners.
Why We’re Serving
Jordan High School has undergone an incredible renovation in the past few years, and we’re joining in efforts to lend an extra group of capable hands. The school serves local youth from the neighboring four public housing developments. On this day of service, volunteers and students will serve together to create a positive example of civic engagement within a community on the rise. This project is another step forward in our continued investment in Jordan High School.
What We’ll Be Doing
Renovate - Overhauling the school’s weight room by demolishing old lockers, installing new mirrors and workout equipment, adding a fresh coat of paint, and upgrading message boards. Beautify - Adding plants and landscaping to bring color and vibrancy to the school’s grounds. Transform - Converting an existing baseball field into a multi-sports field, complete with newly built bleachers, benches, and dugouts for fans and teams to enjoy.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
