Vine Street Elementary  

Our Mission

Vine Street Elementary School strives to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of each and every student to ensure that they are college and career ready at the end of high school.  The school, parents, and the community work in partnership to develop each student's academic excellence, social responsibility, and personal integrity.  All stakeholders are committed to the implementation of State and District grade level standards.


We will carry out our mission with commitment to create a community of lifelong successful learners.  Successful learners will be able to access information through the appropriate use of written, oral, and technological resources.  All students will demonstrate proficiency according to State and District standards.  They will be prepared to apply their knowledge in order to function independently and to contribute to our global society.

Educating the Children of Hollywood for Over 100 years!

Principal's Message

Mrs. Cheng's Back to School Message...


Hello Vine Street Community!


Thank you so much for visiting our website. I hope you find it a useful tool in making informed decisions about your children. In addition to browsing the website, I encourage everyone to LIKE us on Facebook, and follow @VineStreetElem on Instagram and Twitter. We see these spaces as places to celebrate our school with the latest information, reminders, and updates!



I am so proud to be at a school where we are moving toward preparing our students for the future. In addition to instruction in the Common Core State Standards, students at Vine Street have access to technology and blended learning opportunities, CGI math instruction, early literacy academies, science labs, and weekly arts instruction in every arts discipline. Our school features enrichment programs such as 9 Dots Get Coding, Young Storytellers!, Conga Kids!, and EnrichLA garden program.



Gates open every day at 7:20 am for parents and students to exercise together with our Vine Victory Laps, promoting healthy movement and community spirit. Our safe campus houses great teachers and students who have the support of caring parents and community members.



Vine Street has been designated as an LAUSD Community School, which means that over the coming years, we will have the opportunity to focus more on:

· Expanded and enriched learning time and opportunities

· Family and community engagement

· Collaborative leadership and practice

· Integrated student supports



Know that we are doing all we can to ensure that every student receives an excellent school experience. We appreciate all your support!
