WLGS is Celebrating 30 Years of Excellence

Back in 1988, a group of teachers opened up a new program on the Venice High School campus, a program surfacing from the need to use language for practical and commercial purposes. Thirty years later, the mission still rings true.

Join us as we celebrate the 30th anniversary year of our program. 

Please check back for more details, and if you would like to help us plan for this celebration, please let us know.

Thank you!
