Friends of Broadway

Friends of Broadway is Broadway Parents supporting Broadway Students.


Friends of Broadway Elementary School is the parent-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that supports Broadway Elementary School. The funds raised through our efforts supplement the school’s operational budget to bring essential support and enrichments to all of Broadway’s students.

The rigorous language immersion programs at Broadway (Mandarin and Spanish) attract a culturally and socio-economically diverse body of students from across Los Angeles. As a regular Los Angeles Unified School District program of choice (Broadway is neither a magnet nor a charter), Broadway does not receive extra funding to implement the unique team-teaching model of foreign language immersion. Friends of Broadway’s most pressing annual goal is to provide the human resources necessary to support our outstanding teachers and give every student the extra attention that achieving academic proficiency in two languages requires.

In addition to funding additional staff, Friends of Broadway supports programs and resources that enrich the students’ days in numerous ways. From STAR PE to Spirit Series and field trips, Friends of Broadway brings special resources that our students enjoy throughout the year.
