High School Student

On Administration & Policies: Policies directed at clothing are adhered to: no midriffs, no baggy pants, no wife beater tank tops, no sports teams logos (gang related); minimal parental involvement; zero tolerance for bullying

On Academics: My son is in the Highly Gifted Magnet. It's one of the toughest schools academically in LA County.

High School Student

On Extracurriculars: Quidditch, Fencing, Open Mic, School Announcements - some are on and some are off campus. The ones offered during lunch are fairly easy to attend and participate. The ones held off campus are not easy to participate in due to the lack of advanced notice.

Recent Alumnus

On Food: Food is horrible. It can not be considered a healthy alternative to a packed lunch. The meals lack nutritional balance. The meals are purchased cheaply to save money but lack nutrition for the students as the should.

Recent Alumnus

On Resources & Facilities: The counselors at this campus are average. Some college counselors do not belong there. The aid given to students is biased and shuns the kids with lower GPAs. The mediocre service given does not aid a student as it should.
