  • Students frequently tardy or absent fall behind in their academics.
  • Excessive absenteeism contributes to failed grades and possibly dropping out of school.
  • Poor attendance allows students the time to engage in potentially harmful behaviors

Suzy Lim, Dean of Discipline[email protected]
School Safety Officer Thomas[email protected]

I am excited to welcome you to Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies for the 2018-2019 school year.  My name is Suzy J Lim, Dean of Students and I look forward to working with you to ensure a successful year for your student.  My career goal is to help young people reach their fullest potential both academically and emotionally.  I truly believe that SOCES provides our students with the opportunities to make this goal a reality. 

I have been with LAUSD since 1998 as a teacher.  I received my teaching credential at UCLA and completed my Administrative credential at Pepperdine University.  This is the start of my fifth year at SOCES and my third year as Dean of Students.  I also serve as the Varsity Boys and Girls Tennis coach.  One of the reasons I enjoy SOCES is the sense of family that you experience when you are in our building.  Upon entering our doors you will witness the caring professionals that make SOCES a great school.  In addition to the caring professionals you will find amazing students who are supported by caring families.  All of these things make our school a great school!

I truly believe that communication is the key to success.  My door is always open for yourself and your student.  Do not hesitate to call with questions or concerns so we can ensure a successful year for your child.  When the community of SOCES works together, keeping children first, our students make great strides to becoming the best they can be!

Thank you,

Suzy J Lim
