The school is always improving in some way which opens more opportunities for the students already here or the ones coming in. The teachers have time to have one on one with students that need a bit of extra help because the classes aren't over crowded like other schools which teachers barely have the chance to get to know their students.
Los Angeles Leadership Academy is a thriving school that seems to improve year after year. Most teachers will listen to you when you need help in any subject. What makes the school unique is that it offers opportunities to its students be it study abroad, internships, or field trips more often than most schools. The majority of its students end up going to community college, university, or a trade after they graduate. They are very helpful when it comes to applying for college. Recommend to those who want a small school with a myriad of opportunities.
Always the same at this school. New principal says that things have changd, but the school has most students failing, AP program is a joke, and no discipline at the school. This school currently has a massive drug problem, and the principal doesnt know what to do.
This is a great school but only if your son or daughter is doing really bad in another school. You can say that this is like the last resource for those students failing because in this school they'll accept you even if you have the worst grades. If your daughter is a good student who really wants to learn and expand her knowledge, this is not the right place for her, take her somewhere else. In this school they have a new principal every year so everything changes all the time. This is the first year for my daughter here and she doesn't like it, she says the middle school was better because they keep the same principal all the time. Her friends told her that every year gets worst in the high school, most of the students are failing their classes and the school doesn't care. As I said before, if your child is having problems or failing all of her classes somewhere else, bring her here because she will find help, otherwise look for a better option.
LALA is the first school that my son has attended where, as a parent, I actually f feel that the teachers, the principal, the administrative staff and the after-school program counselors truly care about their students and truly enjoy their work. Most importantly to me is that my child is thriving here, He is earning mostly A's and A+'s. He likes all of his teachers, he is learning and he is enjoying the process of learning. Everyday he talks to me with enthusiasm about things he did at school, from the art he has created to the cool stuff he learned in Biology etc... He participates in the after-school programs and he willingly signs up for other activities that the school offers, such as field trips and volunteering opportunities. At first he was reticent about going to this school and disliked the fact that he would have to wear a uniform, but he seems to have adapted to the rule without suffering any undue side effects. I feel that LALA and its educators and staff have managed to create an atmosphere where my child feels motivated to learn, to make an effort and to excel, with a focus towards his future and towards achieving his goals.
In my opinion, I think LALA is an excellent school to get a good education and it is a place where you will always feel safe. The teachers will always care about the students no matter what actions they take. The school provides you with several school supplies and you are always cared for. Here at LALA, we are a family !
