I love my high school. FIlled with amazing teachers, great oppurtunities, and lovely people thee's never a bad day here! So many things happening a student here can never be bored! And don't worry about fitting in because there are all times of social groups here cliches and new ones, too! I've never seen bullying here, and this is an enviroment where if you give a smile you get a smile! Come to LosAl all are welcome!

Though my experiences have mostly been positive, several have not been. For one, there is a HUGE segregation between the “honors” kids and the “regular” kids. The “honors” kids, at least the upper classmen, are always motivated, and competitive, and usually stressed while the “regular” kids are generally lax, and don’t do homework, and more likely to party. There are obvious exceptions to this, but this seems to be how it works. As for the teachers, many of them are really kind, passionate, and are grateful to be teaching at Los Al, but at the same time, if a class does poorly they tend to blame the class instead of finding a flaw in their teaching. Sports are exceptionally competitive, but once you’ve made the team, everyone becomes a family. Like teachers, coaches believe their methods are divine and any failure is the students’ fault. Administration is very slow and inconsistent when you need help.
LAUSD was a great school district to grow up in. Most teachers from Elementary through High School were very well informed and did a great job at teaching and being a part of our school's culture. The schools and facilities were very nice. My parents worked so a lot of the time I would spend my time in the after-school programs. The staff there were always amicable and warm and knew what they were doing and it made school fun. Going through school, I thought my education was okay, but once I got into college and other places outside of my district I realized how lucky I was to go where I did. The teachers prepared us well and held us to a standard of learning that other schools might not be able to do. The resources and fundings are what allows that to happen. It is in a predominantly white area and some activities are held to a higher importance than others, but it is still an amazing, award-winning school district and any student that applies themselves will succeed.
