What I like about an Alliance College-Ready Public School is that it’s a nonprofit charter management organization, is to open and operate a network of small high-performing 9-12 in historically underachieving, low income communities in California that will annually demonstrate student academic achievement growth and graduate students ready for success in college. The mission of Smidt Tech is to operate a small high performance school equipped to prepare each student to enter and succeed in college. The primary strength of Smidt Tech is the highly accountable educational model guided by our five Alliance core values, which include:
1. High expectations for all students
2. Small personalized schools and classrooms
3. Increased instructional time
4. Highly qualified principals and teachers
5. Parents as partners

My experience with Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt Technology High School was incredible. Smidt Tech helped me because who I am today. They changed me, they made me become a better person. Alliance, not only helped me, they helped many generations of students. They do good to us, show us what's right and what's wrong. Make us see what's ahead of us in the future. Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt is an amazing school. It is placed in a good community, in Lincoln Heights. If I could change Smidt Tech, I would change the building, I would want to build another bigger building for other students can get the same opportunity as everyone else and like myself. Alliance Susan & Eric Smidt, changed the best of me and made me be prepeared for what's ahead of me.
I grew up in Washington, DC but had recently arrived in California, Los Angeles fresh out of Freshman year High School. Ready to begin anew for Sophomore year the only problem was when I got to LA, I couldn't find any school that fit any of my needs until I came across Alliance Smidt Tech. When I first arrived all the staff were kind especially the students on the first day, I made many friends even though it's hard for me to make friends. I immediately fell in love with the school by the end of the week and they have helped me grow into a beautiful butterfly while continuing to support me through every step of the way. Whatever I needed they provided the only thing that I would change is the food because on some occasions the food is great but most I would rate it a 3/5.
