The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    I like how they are teaching the child get into better career the teacher are on track how they are doing and best and more is the communication between parent and staff

    I am currently assigned to Le Conte as a displaced teacher. I find the staff to be extremely supportive and professional the students to be respectful and eager to learn and the community members on campus to be friendly and active. All Lausd schools need more funding so I am hoping with that being said that Le Conte will get upgraded technology soon to further support their great scholars. I am lucky to be at Le Conte learning that all schools are NOT the same...Some are striving to make constant improvement - Le Conte is doing that. If I had a child myself I would be very comfortable sending them to Le Conte..and you know how picky we teachers can be..

    I like the teachers and my friends. This school is so cool and the staff here is really nice and polite the campus is so cool. The teachers are so nice when you need help and when you need help they are there for you.I want to thank all the support they offer us and the food here are alright. IM also ready for high school and i want to go to hollywood high school. Then for college i want to go to USC.

    I think Le Conte is a great middle school because all the teachers care about the students The teachers actually get involved in the classroom and outside (especially the S.A.S teachers). Now that I'm in high school I feel prepared for what to do and whats basically expected of me as a student. Although the teachers aren't as great as last years I'll be fine with what I learned.

    It's an amazing school. It is a second home to me. I love the teachers and staff members. The thing I love the most is the lunch time activities on Friday. The electives are so fun that it makes me want to learn more in this school. I wish I could stay forever!!!

    I really like the teachers that work here. They can help you a lot in your homework if you ask. If you don't understand they will explain what they are talking about very clearly. I recommend this school to anyone that will apply.

    Le Conte Middle School is a really great school. They offer many after school programs and activities and the teachers are very helpful here. I have been in L. A. C. E. R. and entered rock band after school and it is a good program. This school has 2 types of magnets and S. A. S. Le Conte has been a great experience and I would recommend it.

    This is a great school where teachers help the students when they do not understand something and teachers also encourage the students to do better in their classes. Le Conte has many after school programs that can help with school work like LACER homework club and sports. The one thing i like about this school is that the electives are fun and I'm happy to come to school everyday.
