ETMLA Celebration of Music

On March 14, 2018 in partnership with Education Through Music Los Angeles, Dorris Place School along with 22 other schools were given the opportunity to participate in a celebration of music at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The 8th Annual Music Unites the World Festival featured collaboration, coaching, master classes and special guest artists, all in celebration of music in Los Angeles.



Fun With Sphero

As a School for Advanced Studies, Dorris Place commits to strengthen services for students identified as gifted, highly gifted, and students who demonstrate superior academic achievement.


During the 2017-2018 school year, gifted and highly gifted students participated in after school programming on Tuesday which incorporated coding and Spheros. Spheros are spherical robots that are controlled by a smartphone or tablet.


Students “code,” or program the sphero to do different functions. These classes incorporate hands-on learning and collaboration.
