Parent: Like all schools, LA is what you make of it. However, LA is special because the teachers, staff and administration give students so many opportunities to succeed - they don't give up! Each student has a trusted adult on the LA campus - teacher, advisor, coach, house parent - to talk to and confide in. The twice monthly Comment Cards provide students and their parents with a built in feedback system. College counseling - outstanding! Their staff is full time, well staffed and engaged with each student from the beginning. Soft intro in 9th, testing review throughout the 10th. Parents receive a detailed monthly newsletter (and lots of helpful links) through Decision Day in your child's senior year. Bonus -summer bootcamp to familiarize students with the Common App, review essay prompts and rough drafts, and college interview skills and do's and don'ts.
