While there are no sports teams, or extracurricular sports, there is 1hr of PE each day witih a choice of yoga, basketball, push up club, power walking or soccer. To label HtH-LA a 'tech school' is a sore misrepresentation of its academic riches. In addition to state-of-the-art technology, the schools name-sake discipline, be aware that the humanities, literature, and foreign language programs are absolutely inspired. As a parent volunteer, I've often heard passionate, even brilliant, teachers spark literary, academic, & philosophical ideas with their students. These kids are taught by lively, original thinkers every day. The school's college advisor is extraordinary and dedicated. Each Senior (1st graduating class) is attending college, and received individual support and attention in reaching their goal. True: 'a small school, not for everybody' as stated above, but any kid lucky enough to be accepted at HtH-LA will have the oppurtunity to sieze a splendid, well-rounded education.
