Curriculum for this school is better than what is offered at many other LAUSD area schools.The staff is nice and seem to care about the children.There are other things missing from the middle school in terms of after school activities. Many of the activities that are mentioned on the website are not included at the middle school, there is are foreign language classes, sports, drama, or student government. I find that the children aren't allowed to be children and learn in a manner that isn't based in a military drill format. The school seems to base their disciplinary actions on the worst performing student and often comes off as extreme with the most extreme punishment used for the smallest offense. If you have a child that needs very rigid structure then this is the place for you. If you have a child that doesn't require such a rigid environment then you might want to look into another college prep middle school in the area. I'm sure this will be a five star middle school in a few years but at this time there are still quite a few kinks to sort out as everyone works together to run a middle school which seems to be a new adventure for all parties involved.

I have a 5th grader and a Kindergartner attending Equitas and I'm extremely pleased with everything about this school.This is a very structurized and disciplined school which is a wonderful thing.Their teachers are AMAZING!!They really care about my boys' long term goals and are able to have an ongoing communication with me about my boy's academic progress. Thanks to them my children are performing above grade level. It's wonderful to hear your children talk about what university they would like to attend,at such a young age.This is a school that I forever will be referring people to. I can go on and on saying wonderful things about Equitas and their staff but with all reality it's different to experience it for yourself, So I encourage everyone to look into the school, call for information or even take a tour. I guarantee you will be very pleased. I AM!!!

My child has bearly three weeks in Equitas and I know we've made a great decision by transferring him. The staff does everything to make you feel right at home and in these short weeks they've improved my child's math work which is a plus because he's now confident enough when it comes to his homework. I would recommend this school to everybody it's a change you won't regret.

This is an ABSOLUTELY excellent school. My son has been there for 4 years now and I could not have found a better school for him to go to. The faculty is wonderful, the after school program is top notch, the children are very well behaved and do well academically, they set strong goals to reach College. The whole school has an atmosphere that you know will be good for your kid/s. I was also happy to see that their testing scores are magnificent. Thank YOU Equitas!
