School Reviews

5   4/5/2014
I have seen this school many years back as a child and it was not a very good school. I did not think i would ever attend this school. However, I decided to transfer schools my sophomore year and now as a junior i completely love it. Majority of students do have a strong sense of pride, win or lose, the students still cheer their peers on. From being a student in the Burbank District to LA District, I see the differences. But I do believe that Polytechnic has improved massively and is still improving from our previous years. We raise money and give back to the community. Poly Students are very giving and generous to the less fortunate, Not to mention the classes the school offers. Not only do they offer AP classes but college classes as well. We are provided with many opportunities to be ahead of the game and gain college credits for the future. Yes, there are many things that this school needs to improve but all of the positive things definitely make up for it. In my opinion, Polytechnic High School is one of the best in LAUSD and I recommend this school.
