Linda E Marquez High School overall is a great school with lots of school spirit and high academic work. The school is divided into three academy’s which include the Libra Academy, HPIAM Academy, and The School Of Social Justice (SSJ). Classroom wise all academy’s have their own floor with their own class subjects. I however attend the top floor SSJ here at Marquez High. I am a senior with more class credits than i should need meaning that i’ve taken more classes then i needed to and i’m currently taking 6 blocks in the school year. Here at SSJ we tend to help students to achieve their goals into applying into colleges and in our leadership class we run a student led class that reaches out to our students to participate in various activities during lunch and after school.

Linda Esperanza is divided into three different schools. I attend the Huntington Park Institute of Applied Medicine. For three years, I have happily attended HPIAM. Although it is a small school, it is a very comforting community within all students and staff. Since it is small, students tend to recognize and know almost everyone at school. It is also very easy to create strong bonds with teachers who become someone you can trust and talk to. Student involvement is a huge factor I admire greatly. As ASB President, I have experienced and witnessed the encouragement teachers impose on their students for the sake of their growth as a persons. My teachers have supported me along the way, and next year will be the last year I get to spend with my fellow peers and favorite teachers. HPIAM, without a doubt, is the best choice I could have made to spend my high school journey at.
I am currently a Junior at Linda Marquez High. Something I really like about this school is it's unity between the three different academies. This school shares different ideas and propose different academy for different interest. The first floor is more about liberal arts, second floor is focused on the medical field, the third floor is about social justice. I really like the block schedules, the teachers and staff have a very well relationship with their students, and it's perseverance to have each student graduate and move on to college. Huntington Park Institute of Applied Medicine students are greatness waiting to happen.
