Principal's Message

Welcome to the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center, the Temple City Adult Transition Program, and the Temple City Community Adult Education Program,

Here at the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center the health and welfare of our students is our number one priority.  We take multiple measures to ensure a clean and safe learning environment.  We are so excited about seeing our wonderful students returning to campus.  We pride ourselves on empowering students to make their dreams come true.  Students from all walks of life, ability levels, and skills come through our doors hoping to make positive changes in their lives. 

We take a case model approach to helping students and their families to improve skills and get the help that they need to ensure a brighter future.  Both the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center as well as the Temple City Community Adult Education programs are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  Our staff work diligently to create the relationships necessary to help our community of learners to thrive.  Dedicated to the success of our students, the DDSLC staff is constantly evaluating and revaluating the services we provide in order to hone our skills as well. 

We genuinely believe that being a community of lifelong learners means we ourselves, just like our students, are continually trying to improve.  By working with multiple agencies with Los Angeles and the State of California, we work to help our students access as many resources as they need to move forward with their dreams and goals.  I truly believe in the power of education to change lives.  I believe that the work we do here is changing the world.  Through every conversation and relationship we are helping our students, community, country, and world be a better, brighter version itself than it was yesterday.

We look forward to helping you make your dreams come true,


Robert Westgate
