Sheen Educational Foundation

        Sheenway School and Culture Center                      


Sheenway School in Sasekope Village is the first registered private school in the Volta Region of Ghana…a bridge to Sheenway School in South Los Angeles, USA.  With virtual technology, both campuses are symbiotic neighbors, each benefiting from enriched curriculum, extended education, and cultural aesthetics for unparalleled opportunities in preparation for the world stage.  Critical thinking and personal development is highlighted within the Sheenway Experience - a global platform of classic and progressive academia for early education through secondary grade successes.

The Sankofa is a symbol of inspiration as we learn from history
and from our past.  To understand who and why we are,
education must lead the journey into the future.

Sheen Educational Foundation is a living laboratory of learning and teaching for total education, in a country schoolhouse setting. SEF is a search of wisdom - an umbrella prototype for global education, teaching and learning without borders.  Diversity and multicultural enrichment weave into the dreams of tomorrow. Parents, the first teachers, join hands with SEF, the community, and beyond bonding into the village that raises the child.


Herbert A. Sheen, M.D. was a family physician with a background of serving the low income populations of St. Louis, Missouri; Chicago, Illinois; and Tyler, Texas; before coming to Watts, California, in 1945. He understood that the healing processes of his patients began and ended with deeper symptomatology than organic disease. Later,  Dr. Sheen's varied efforts to upgrade his beloved Watts, brought little results over the time span of 1945 - 1965.  The summer of 1965 erupted into a civil rebellion, punctuated with citywide rioting, prompting him to offer 'no-interest' loans for private community redevelopment, thinking that economic mobility could make a healing difference and pride and dignity could prevail.  Failure was evident by 1968, so Dr. Sheen decided to donate his life's savings and assets into a non-profit foundation to develop an indigenous teaching and learning center with a concentrated focus on early childhood development and total education.  Along with his daughter, Dolores Sheen, they created a village known as Sheenway School and Culture Center, which began serving the Watts/South Los Angeles communities in 1971.
