I am a Lawndale High alum. Lawndale is a great school for those students who are motivated and involved. Lawndale also has one of the best teachers who genuinely care for their students. As for academics, the school puts in their effort and the students should also put their fair share. I went to Lawndale High, and now I am at an Ivy League institution. If I did it, others can too. The administration is a bit ehh though.

This school used to be good but no the school is bad. This school has no school spirit and I can see why. The school is SO CROWDED! They accept like every student now, barely any room in the lunch line and when you go to the L's(science rooms) theres like a million kids coming out. The teachers are ok but some just do not care about the students and some don't even teach that good they just talk and let students sleep and listen to music. And when the first day of school comes they mess up the students schedule, this happens every year. It was so bad this year it took 4 weeks to fix the students schedule and during the 2nd week of school you can see a bunch angry parents complaining to the counselors about their kids schedule.The students are down right rude and care more about their looks then their education, not all though but still. The school is dirty too. Anyways don't bother coming here its better if you go to a school like leuzinger. I here that school not so bad after all. Rant over.

In the 60's and 70's it was a great school. Now I would rate it at average or below. Am totally unimpressed with the 13 year plan. Great new facilities does not translate to good students. And hoe does a "Broke State" get the finances. Lawndale is now a lower middle class area. Improvements have to be made, ot's true but not a new scholl that resembles a college campus. Academics, administrators, good teachers, and good parents make a school worthwhile. And not leaving any vestige or building ans sayin one will not recognize it in the future, is cruel to those students who started the school, and the teachers who taught there. I don't want bragging rights, I want good students, teachers and citizens.

This school was very good during the 2009-2010 school year. The teacher all seemed to genuinely care for the students.However, the superintendent, who also oversees the substandard perforning Hawthorne and Leuzinger High Schools, decided to move some of the great techers to these low performing schools in exchange for teachers that were not doing so well. The change was obvious on day one of this school year. The expereince with some of these new teachers has not been favorable. I do not see the drive and motivation to help my child. My child tells me the students have the same perception. My son went over two months without a history book and was failing his class. Yes, he was expected to complete all his assignments without a tectbook (the only student without a book in her class). I hope this superintendant realizes his mistake or gets replaced by someone with a strong business philosophy.

I am a student at lawndale currently a sophmore and i love this school. You hardly have to worry about a riot going on or a fight about to break down because the staff here cares so much about there students that go here. But there is also one thing i dont like and that is how the school is so dirty. like in the classrooms the floors are all black and on the campus it looks like they dont make an effert to clean it up. So that in my opinion makes the school look real bad. Class of 2012!

Lawndale is a great school. It is about the opportunities that it will give us as students. It will open up doors to more electives for us. Most teachers are great and really dedicated. I loove all of my teachers. I am proud to soon graduate from this school! ( june 2008)

Lawndale has many great teachers, but bad principals and campus is ugly. We need more technology they are so behind. After all that, most teachers are young, enthusiatic and dedicated.

I'm currently a student are lawndale high school and I totally love it here. It's the best school in our district and we are growing each year... We have many new clubs that are being established at Lawndale such as the asian club, drama club, the academic decatholon team, and so much more. This year our academic decatholon team helped place as the 2nd most improved in the county. Our test scores are getting higher and higher.. and with the auditorium on its way to being finish, i hope to see the school grow as a whole.

Programs on this campus have improved over the past 2 years. There is much excitement over the growth of this campus, especially in API scores. There will be a new Performing arts building adding more opportunities in electives for students. Sports has been a successful addition to the campus increasing students' awareness to the importance of fitness. Parent involvement needs to improve. There lacks a presence of parent involvement on campus. There is no PTSA on campus. We do have an active Alumni that fundraises money to create various scholarships for graduating seniors.

I currently attend Lawndale High School in Southern California. I find it great. Our academic programs are completely advanced which gives even honors students, such as me, a challenge, this makes going to school every weekday morning intersting. Although music classes arent yet offered, we do get our taste of music. Anything from Battle of the Bands to having a DJ come to our school once in a while. Extracurricular activites are neverending which keeps my peers involved. Best of all sports! I have played Varsity Softball for two years now and I see great improvement in me and my team mates (We've only had sports for 2 years). This school is great and can only improve.

Overall, Lawndale High School provides an adequate education to those who pursue it. Their AP classes supply challenging college preparatory material that enable AP students a smooth transition into college if they so choose. There are various clubs to offset the lack of major sports, art and music programs. Although this school is not rated one of the best in the state, its meticulous education proves beneficial to those most hungry, while various leadership oppurtunities allow students to develop real world skills that can be used post-graduation. The level of parental involvement is low, however, there are multiple oppurtunities provided for those parents who wish to get involved.

My child went to Lawndale High School, and I feel it is an outstanding school. The school and neighborhood is quiet, there are no fights or riots their and the students seem so nice and friendly with each other. When I went down there to check on my son, the teachers greeted me warmly and made sure I felt so welcome. The sports and extracurricular activities are also nice considering they have been re-opened for only 5 years. As far as I am concerned I love Lawndale and I am so fortunate that my child is going to be a Lawndale High School graduate.

The school is going through a change with a new gymnasium, new track & field. They are building a theatre/arts building. This school has been reopened for about 5 years now and will soon have their own sports team this fall. This school is a school of choice, meaning thee are 2 other schools in the area. It is a tri-semester system with 4 classes each semester. If a student have trouble & get kicked out then they have to go to their home school.
