    My school is within a big school called Miguel Contreas Learning Complex. The Academic Leadership Community is my favorite school because all the teachers are interesting and they become your friend. The school makes me feel like I belong and comfortable. My voice is heard and the staff actually listen to me.

    my school has alot of cool things. One of the cool things is that we have all the sport a school could give. however we also have a good education area and they teach us many differnet thing . For example we have classes like latin american studies marine biology physics Calculus and more. That's why i think that my school is the best.

    I love ALC beacuse as few of the school inLAUSD teachers do care for our students and we guide them to be ready for life after high school. I am pround to say that when a student graduates for our school they are prepared to attend a 4 year university and other institutions.

    Our school provides a small environment in which teacher students and parents combine thier talents in order to help each other suceed. Because we are a small school we are able to provide indivdual attention while prepare ALL our students for the possibility of going to college if they so choose. We are also on a tight budget in hard times but our teachers are dedicated staying late nearly every day putting in extra tutoring hours for students helping each other and attending sporting events to supoprt the students. Therefore we deserve a little extra help so that we can make the most of the great staff and site that we have.

    A great school that is truly a learning community. I graduated last year and miss this school a lot. The teachers care about students and challenge them more than the surrounding schools.
