I am honored to serve as Principal of Sylmar Charter High School. My name is James Lee and I have been with the Los Angeles Unified School District now for 27 years. During my tenure, I have worked at many different locations.  I can sincerely say that my experience at Sylmar Charter High School has been, and continues to be, the most rewarding of my career. 


Sylmar is a unique community with a rich history. I myself am a resident of Sylmar and send my children to Sylmar area public schools.  I am proud to say that my eldest son attends Sylmar CHS. Therefore, I am personally vested in ensuring Sylmar CHS is a safe and welcoming school that provides a comprehensive and rigorous instructional program.


During the past five years I have served as Principal, we have made much progress, becoming one of the highest performing schools in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.  I am excited about continuing our collaboration with teachers, staff, the community and parents to further enhance our academic programs. I have an open door policy so parents are always welcome to visit at any time. No appointments are ever needed.
