My daughter goes to this school and honestly I don't like this school. One of my family friends recommended this school to me because her daughter was going there and she liked it, but when I went to my daughters Parent Conference, the school was Not CLEAN. The students there were mean. I actually saw someone bullying a girl in 9th grade and I was really scared for my daughter after that moment. There was no respect in that school. My daughter didn't like it at all; neither did I. So I wanted to move my daughter to another school. I then looked up this EXACT website and searched Arleta and Poly High School. There was many good comments about Arleta and many bad comments about Poly. So I decided to do more research on both schools. When I was finished I realized that Arleta High School was the school for my daughter. And one of my co-workers daughter goes to that school and I went with them to one of the Parent Conferences and the teachers there are so nice. The students there are responsible and I like that on Wednesdays they dress responsible. So I put my daughter in that school. And I HONESTLY LOVE IT! I recommend this school if you are looking for a GREAT school.

A good school but honestly there's better schools. In my opinion I like LAUSD district schools better. They seem to have more time for students.
