Semillas Del Pueblo Community Schools (Semillas Del Pueblo) enrolls over 400 students in our Kinder-12 continuum of learning. Semillas is a community-based, education non-profit organization led by Indigenous Mexican educators in Los Angeles, California. Semillas represents two community-based charter schools in East Los Angeles, Xinaxcalmecac Academia Semillas del Pueblo for grades kinder through eighth and Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory High School of North America for grades ninth through twelfth. Semillas students strive to become internationally-minded, culturally wise community members.


As the first International Baccalaureate World School to be authorized in the city of Los Angeles and the only World school in East. LA., Semillas goes beyond the minimal standard of instruction, to meet the rigor of international standards of education, as well as internationally recognized rights of children, and Indigenous Peoples through our houses of higher learning. Semillas is decisively paving the way for university success on the international stage for twenty-first century students based upon the wisdom of millenarian indigenous knowledge. Semillas also provides a haven for students to cultivate intellectual and social potential to become future doctors, lawyers, artists, entrepreneurs and educators. Semillas strives to provide a strong foundation for future generations through a powerful education so they become conscious, whole and capable individuals that can guide with ancestral clarity for the coming seven generations.


Beyond public schools, Semillas advocates for the internationally recognized rights of children, and Indigenous Peoples as proclaimed by the United Nations through cultural relevance and community empowerment across the continent. Semillas del Pueblo is a 501(c)3 non-profit indigenous educational organization.


Co-founded by Indigenous Mexican educators born in Mexico, Semillas embodies a dream of an entire movement, the Chicano Movement - for an alternative education capable of fostering dignity in our children through autonomous intellect and knowledge. Moreover, Semillas represents a community-based response to the international and local call for Indigenous education guided by the UN-DRIP as a model for decolonization by Indigenous Peoples across the continent. The Semillas co-founders arose from humble beginnings, consistently committed to sacrifice, turning the privileges of education into the promotion of a generational struggle on behalf of one's People, and the whole of humanity.
