I love it because it provides me with a great education, and I know I am prepared for college! It may be small, but I feel like that is what makes the school stand out. I have closer interactions with my teachers, and they can get to know me well, which is a great resource for recommendation letters. I have learned a lot in the past few years at High Tech, and I could have not been thankful for this wonderful education. I recommend this school to any high schooler who is willing to do their best to get to college. This really is the number one best college readiness school in Los Angeles! It is a safe environment with plenty of resources to easily contact teachers. You get to meet new people from wonderful, interesting backgrounds that you may not have thought about coming across.

High Tech Los Angeles is a small charter school with a focus on college preparedness, project based learning, and STEM education. It's a fantastic school with very passionate teachers and faculty. The teachers who work there are there because they truly love to teach, and it shows. The school is small, so students can have personal relationships with all their teachers. It's essentially a private school education with no tuition. Their FIRST robotics team is very welcoming and has provided me with an opportunity to learn so much and meet many interesting people.
High Tech Los Angeles considers itself a College Prep school, and I have to agree. The academics are just like other schools, but stricter and tougher. Despite the difficulty, we learn a lot for school and the future. When we are struggling, students tend to help each other, and so do the teachers. The teachers here are easy to talk to and every student likes them. Our teachers can be strict and they expect highly of us, but they also know how to keep the classes fun and exciting without sacrificing academics. Our students are also easy to talk to. We have many lovable students that are able to quickly make friends with everything they talk to. All of this makes High Tech Los Angeles a good environment and school to learn in.
