Thanks for your interest in High Tech Los Angeles Middle School (or HTLA-MS, because let's face it, that's way faster). We are incredibly proud of our small public charter, which provides tuition-free education to middle-schoolers in grades 6-8 who are California residents. In addition to the core subjects, HTLA is proud to offer an acclaimed art program, as well as opportunities for physical movement and a rotating selection of electives and extracurriculars.
Our top-tier staff of teachers works closely with every student to provide not only vibrant in-class instruction, but also tutoring before and after every school day on specific assignments or areas of need. We also prioritize an inter-disciplinary education, where a skill learned in Art can apply as easily to English or Science, and the curriculums of the subjects can reference each other.
One of our signatures is the Presentation of Learning, done twice yearly, in which each student delivers a brief oral report to a panel of teachers and parents. It's an opportunity for them not only to demonstrate what they've achieved during the year, but to identify their struggles and successes, become adept at speaking concisely to supervisors, and make those cross-curriculum connections -- all of which we believe makes them stronger learners, and better prepared to face the demands of high school, college, and beyond.
