Thank you for visiting the Archer Forward website. In August 2015, after four years of a rigorous and comprehensive public engagement and review process, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved Archer’s Campus Preservation and Improvement Plan – the foundation for the future of The Archer School for Girls. We are pleased that the Brentwood Homeowners Association and the Residential Neighbors of Archer supported the compromise plan, which addresses community priorities and sets a new standard for how independent schools can live in harmony with neighbors.
