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!

I was fortunate enough to go to a school where offers lots of resources for low-income students. We are enrolled in the free lunch program and were given breakfast for all students to enjoy. LAUSD also offers workshops for students especially for seniors and their families to be aware of important deadlines and information that are crucial in this specific time of the year. Also, we were fortunate enough to be granted one free year of community college! That was the most exhilarating news I've received in my whole life because it shows how committed faculty are towards making our education accessible and affordable!:) this opportunity is something worth taking advantage of because it opens up so many doors for students residing in the Los Angeles area who are trying to pursue a better education and work environment.
The LAUSD school are amazing! With teachers who communicate with their students, helping them achieve their goals. The schools that I've attended have shown me a path for my future. In Elementary, i started my love for music, Middle school, i expressed my music and fell in love with other subjects lile science and math. Now im High School, my school has given me a opportunity at a program for UCLA! What luck!
