Cit of Angels Independent Study is an excellent school! I'm currently in my senior year, and I started the second semester of sophomore year. It was a major change from public school, but it was much better for me. There are challenges having complete control of your work, but working on my own time and bypassing the distractions of school works much better for me, and it's so much less stressful. I'm grateful that my teacher cares about my learning and that I like her. I also have friends that are doing this school with me. It's a great school if you need to make up work, too, because you can finish as much work as you need to in time. If you're able to maintain your work its great.

Teachers there truly take the time to help you learn subjects you're struggling with and truly care about pushing you to do the best you can. City of Angels is fundamentally independent study so there isn't much need for clubs or activities. Maybe it would be a good thing to have, but at the same time we go to turn in the work we do independently, not to stick around following the same regulations as a traditional school. The school respects that some students may be handling part time jobs as well. I personally graduated because I had the support of the great teachers who took the time to help me learn and counselor who taught me time management skills.
It was an amazing and safe environment for me to learn, and really helped me focus on my studies. Also, the teachers that I had were very kind and always wanted us to do our best. I was able to flourish and really love school, and figure out what I want to pursue in life. I look back at my time spent at City of Angels and have nothing but fond and happy memories.If your struggling in school and need a change in environment, I totally recommend City of Angeles for you.
