The thing I like most about the Los Angeles School District, is that in areas where parents and students are struggling financially, the district offers them with relief such as reduced lunch for students, after school activities or clubs, as well as providing medical examinations in schools and referring students to health facilities. The school district also does a great job in facilitating and arranging a student's transportational needs based off of their financial status and need for transportational resources. Furthermore, LAUSD is exceptional when it comes to diversity. Not only the staff, but the students encounter a diverse environment, which teaches them how to be sympathetic and respectful to individuals unlike themselves. Ultimately, the district really goes over and beyond to maintain the diversity in schools and to ensure the safety and freedom of every single individual, without regarding their financial status, race, or personal preferences.

Los Angeles Unified School District has numerous great schools in Los Angeles, which offer a variety of programs in each school. I am a senior at STEM Academy of Hollywood located at the Helen Bernstein campus, and I can say that the support and opportunities that were available to me have greatly improved my professionalism and college readiness. I obtained opportunities for internships, school clubs, academic support, and much more!
LAUSD from my experience has been really great, because it is public education everyone has a chance at going to school and getting the resources needed. I've been attending schools within LAUSD since elementary and i believe I'm prepared enough to go through to college and take on the challenges!
