L.A. charter high school buys private elementary school campus

Granada Hills Charter High School in Los Angeles has purchased the Pinecrest School campus in the Northridge neighborhood for $5.6 million. The Los Angeles Daily News says Pinecrest, a private school, will continue to operate an elementary school at the campus through 2014-15, when Granada Hills Charter will take control of the six-acre campus. Specific plans for the Northridge site have not been finalized; officials says it could be a ninth-grade campus, a middle school or an elementary school. Granada Hills has 4,300 students and a waiting list of at least 2,000 more.
