The academic focus at LPS Hayward is very intense. There is definitely a lack of clubs and extracurriculars, however, the focus is on academics and college-readiness. The experience is not stress-free, and while resources for stress management are available, they are not advocated. In fact, there is an emphasis on reaching a high standard and continuing to raise that standard. The history department is well-developed and has well-informed teachers. In general, a good majority of the teachers are also willing to help students individually if needed.

Leadership Public Schools - Hayward is a great school! It has helped me prepare for college and has made sure I have had various learning and educational opportunities. However, this school is only known for helping students prepare for college. There is a limited variety of sports and other extra curricular opportunities at this school. This school is not for those who want to play sports in the years that they will spend here. Other schools in the vicinity of Hayward have various competitive sports teams, while Leadership Public Schools - Hayward only offers a limited amount of sports including: Basketball, Baseball, Volleyball and soccer. When I first attended this school, I was assuming they had a swim and cross country team. Unfortunately, after having attended this school for a year, I realized they did not. Although this school is not known for its competitive sports teams, it has a reputation of being the best school in Hayward.
I am a freshman and so far, during the second quarter, everything has been great for me! The academics are challenging, but the teachers are willing to help. I've made lots of friends, and everyone here is friendly. Sure, there may be drama here and there, but the teachers are always there to help. Every Friday, we have Family Meetings, where we address important issues in the school and do other important things. LPS also gives students opportunities to apply for scholarships and go on college tours. Even before the school year started, the freshman class went on a 3-day retreat to UCSC to not only learn about college but to bond with our advisory. Overall, LPS has been a great experience for me, and I would recommend it to anyone who has been on the border of attending.
