The children at Third Street School are diverse, well-rounded, top-scoring students who will continue on to higher education and become distinguished, civic-minded leaders of tomorrow. Our talented teachers and staff have cultivated students whose state testing performance places Third Street as one of the top public elementary schools in Los Angeles.

Our parent volunteer groups are dedicated to supporting students, teachers and faculty through community-building initiatives, classroom support and the funding of enrichment programs, school-wide technology and professional development.  

Who We Are


Friends of Third is a 501(c)3 non-profit parent booster group dedicated to providing classroom support, enriching programs and technology for all students at Third Street School. We rely on our community of parents, faculty, relatives, neighbors and local businesses to make our vital programs possible.

Parent volunteers raise funds to support our teachers and students in this journey. Together, we fund a budget of over $500,000 through Annual Giving and other school-wide events throughout the year to provide technology, arts, music, physical education, library services, classroom materials, field trips, teacher assistants and professional development for our teachers.

Donate to the Annual Giving Fund today to keep our school enriching and competitive.
