Although there is no honors/AP classes at LACS, the classes are challenging. You have the opportunity to learn from the teachers who are highly educated and well known in their field of study. Popular classes in my school Facing History and Ourselves; which is a combined english and social studies course.

The academics are what you make of them. Teachers are always willing to meet after class to discuss topics or provide additional help. The workload is often fairly light, however, so a non-driven student can sometimes slip by without doing a lot of work.
There is little racial or economic diversity. There is a great level of student involvement in the school, acceptance and sexual orientation.
