    Middle College High School is one of the best school in L.A. There has been many students over the recent years that were able to graduate and also obtain and AA degree from LASC. The school also gives students easy access to many extra curricular activities for example sports. If you want to play a sport there are high chances you will be able to play. Middle college is no walk in the park most of the work that was done in my English classes were readings that were preparing me for college level work. I can easily say the same for science. Math its got to be worked on but everything else is good and now that the school finally opened up its new building its a major incentive to go here. Going here will also cut your number of years at a four year university you just have to sacrifice some of your time and you can potentially save thousands of dollars!!

    This is a small school but great for students that want to persue a career. This school allows you to take college courses at the same time that you take your high school requirments. I think it is one of the best schools in the LA Unified.

    Great school with overall intelligent students role model teachers and a great safety environment. The extracuricular activities keep students away from danger and make them more knowledgable. All parents are great with their support towards the staff and students.

    Middle College offers great academic programs such as the Academic Decathlon The Engineering Club and The Art Club. These programs offer our kids a great environment and more educational environment. Middle College has basketball tennis for both girls and boys coed baseball and marathon. Our School is in danger becuase there has been many rumors and propositions to close down Middle College and ever since our parents have been greatly involved even so they have always been a great help to the staff and teachers.
