Huntington Park College Ready Academy High School Reviews

The overall ambiance is welcoming and the people here are kind, students and faculty alike. There is a large emphasis on going to college and making sure we are prepared for what we will encounter. The counselors here are amazing! They are extremely helpful when approached, and when they aren't they reach out to you to make sure you're doing well and they keep you up to date on important dates and opportunities. The administration makes clear what is expected in terms of behavior and overall character. The principal is active around the school and knows a lot of the students' names. There are some downsides such as particular teachers who don't really give it their all and then some workers in the office who don't have the best attitudes. However, the positives heavily outweigh the negatives. In essence, the school is a wonderful outlier in the low-income communities of South Central where education normally isn't this good.

So far, my experience has been great because I have been able to have the opportunity in being committed with my school work, extracurricular activities and being able to express myself with teachers. Although, some students may not have the chance to express themselves yet, this school gives you a chance and encourages one another to strive their goals. Like many other schools there is always one thing that could change and that is, letting students be more independent about their choices they want to choose. Not saying that we are not independent, but if we choose to do something we will have consequences on our own and not depend on others'. But overall, I believe that this school is a great fit for my education because I feel safe and cared for at all times knowing that I have a bright future ahead of me with the help of astonishing teachers.
Huntington Park College-Ready is located in a low-income area, and because of this it, naturally, lacked resources and opportunity for its student. Nevertheless, Huntington Park provided a much safer and more engaging learning environment compared to its neighboring schools. With teachers that genuinely cared about the students success, rather then their pay check. The teachers at the school are truly the heart and soul of the institution, constantly encouraging and aiding students in the most beneficial way possible. The teachers are what sets Huntington Park apart from its neighbors. Huntington Park makes a great effort to prepare its students for the future.
