Academia Avance Charter School is a college ready school. My six year experience has been amazing! It helps many students look forward and continue there education to benefit themselves. You get help from teachers,staff, even students. The only disclaimer I'd have to say would be the air conditioner situation. Since we are in a basement it gets ridiculously hot. We have no air conditioner in any class which makes it a lot harder to stay on task and focus. Overall, the staff and teachers are very welcoming and caring.

What I like about Academia Avance is that we are a diverse school that does not discriminate against anyone, whether it is race, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. In this school our teachers helps us in anyway possible to achieve our goal, which is to be college ready students. During our senior year we are going to do internships based on our choice of career that we choose. This internship will help us get the exposure of working in a professional environment and also help create relationships with future employees.
Academia Avance is a small charter high school is Highland Park, CA. Its mission is to prepare students for college. The school is majority Hispanic and instead of offering us Spanish as a second language, they offered us Mandarin Chinese. The school even had a foreign exchange program that brought students from China and took some of our students to China. I was able to participate in that program and it was a life-changing experience. Also, in our senior year they offered us an internship program and I interened there all through out high school and college.
