I started going to LA High during the 2013-2014 school year. This will be my second year attending and to be honest I love it. I am part of the magnet program. The school is mostly Hispanics with a minority of blacks Filipinos Koreans and some South Asians. I can't say anything about the teachers in the regular program but the magnet teachers are the best. Yes, they are challenging but they really do know how to teach. LA high might have a bad reputation but it's not the place that's bad !

I've transferred to this school due to moving, and what everyone says about this school is true, It should be considered one of the worst schools in this district. The school staff does not enforce ANYTHING in school grounds. The teachers do not give much of teaching, rather of stacks of assignments to grade and pass us on to the next grade. Security is also a problem. Currently we have many issues with smokers and it seems as if not enough security is going around to stop it. The effort is minimal, during lunch time kids are sprawled all over campus who smoke. I did not see any security walking around the area to make sure. The students will ditch and it is made easy for them. Most of the students behaviors reflect lack of discipline and no motive for education. Overall I advise parents to avoid this school.

The new principal is extremely competent, creative and truly looking out for the best interests of the students, their emotional growth and the continued success of LACHSA. LACHSA's teachers are overall the most skilled, focused, dedicated and joyful I've seen in any public or private institution. The arts disciplines are on a professional level, which the parents are so grateful for that their commitment to organizing and participating is quite commendable.

I attended LA High and I really enjoyed the time there. Like every other school there are difficulties, but you will get teachers that are really great. I really think that parent participation is really important. I could see how studnet's could get into a lot of trouble if not supervised.

It is not that bad of a school. A lot of the teachers will help you if you go to them for help with your kids. Jrotc is a excellent program at la high for the students. Parents need to come out and meet the teachers on back to school night. I see so few parents coing you have to make an effort and have inerest in the school.

I actually attended LA high it's not such a bad school , there are some teachers who actually teach but there are some who couldnt really care less. The school is a little over croweded but The school has some good qualities like some of the teachers care and try to help , some of the activties are to raise School Spirit. The school itself isnt bad but the students themselves are the ones who make LA High seem like the wost.

Los Angeles High School is a great school with alot of racial integration. Students are proud to be Romans and know of the interesting history of their school. L.A. High School is the place to be to recieve a great education.

LA High is a pretty good school. My main concern was the safety of my child along with getting a good education. And I must say that this school is prettt safe for your child to attend and I feel that they will also get a good education.

This whole schools district is messed up. I'm a student that actually goes here and I'm planning on transferring....if you don't want to ruin your child's future...don't send them here. there's no difference between your workplace and a student's school. So choose carefully. Not every school provides everything. The[y] really don't offer anything.

Overcrowded, horrible school. Bad teachers, dirty bathrooms, unsafe, named one of the most violent High schools in CA! No lockers, very ghetto.

This school does not have a proper educational environment. It had three different tracks that go year-round. The school looks like a prison because it's architect was actually a prison architect. The children are always afraid for their safety when they are at this school. Fights are not unfrequent. The teachers do not really teach, they just give out assignments from books and don't care about their students. This school keeps changing principals because it is so difficult to take care of. Overall, this school is not a good educational environment for any kid.

LA High needs to involve parents more in all aspects of school life. While improving, LA High still has a long road ahead to make it a safe campus that students from all backrounds can achieve equally in.

Los Angeles Senior High School Is really a great school. Two of my kids are going there 9th and 12th grades. I think the main problem of our school is discipline. The principal is really trying and so are the teachers but are not been supported fully by parents. Even though we discuss this every time at the parent/teacher conference, some parents are still do not get it that kids may probably do better in everything including academics if there some boundaries, rules and cosceqencies set and maintained for them. Example, the way they dress, talk to themselves, teachers and others in school and the ways they comport themselves generally in school and to know there are immediate conscequencies for not been serios with school work as well.

The magnet school is not only wonderful because of the counselor, it also has many fine, dedicated teachers who maintain high standards and discipline, especially Mr. Hatem and Mr. Pemberton.

The test scores are low. However the school is not bad, especially the Magnet program, which is great because of its wonderful counselor.
