Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District

The school's commitment is to help and mold cadets, become better students and individuals. Since my first day at Southeast Academy I've felt the support and encouragement from both staff and students. SEA teaches us discipline, structure, strength and courage. Not only that we are also taught to be accountable,responsible, and respectful. It's a great school if you are looking to join the U.S. Armed Forces and National Defense Industries.

In my school (Southeast Academy) the staff we have is very supportive. We are like a family, they want what is best for every student there! Our counselor tells us everything we need to know about college even if we do not want to go, she gives us the information we need to know what we are getting ourselves into. She makes sure we know all our choices so we have the tools to succeed.
My experience in this school district was overall pretty positive. I had quite a few teachers who were fully invested in my success. These teachers provided their students with growth opportunities and invested love and support into their actions. I was also an honors/AP student as well as a music students, so my experience has been in that direction. I know that I got lucky with quite a few of my teachers , because the honors/AP teachers were just better than the other teachers and they liked us AP students more.

In my time there, I remember a lot of my teachers loving the administrators.

The counselors at Norwalk High School are actually the best. They put a lot of work into helping the students find the right schedule and apply for the right colleges. They did a lot of presentations and gave resources when it came time to apply for colleges.
