COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
HTLA Middle School acknowledges and agrees that all persons are entitled to equal employment opportunity. HTLA shall not discriminate against applicants or employees on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, age, marital status, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, military and veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by California or federal law.

High quality teachers are the key to student success. Our teachers are team-oriented people with an internal desire to grow as experts in their profession. They embrace feedback, training, observations, and growth, seeking to improve their practice and student outcomes every day. They pride themselves on not just imparting knowledge but inspiring students to be self-motivated learners, connecting classroom experiences to life ambitions.
Without the operations team at HTLA, our students cannot learn and teachers cannot teach. The operations team works tirelessly to ensure that day-to-day school operations and logistical obstacles do not interrupt student learning. In order for students to learn, the school must be safe, nurturing, and run smoothly. Deft communicators, quick thinkers, and detail-oriented individuals will thrive within our operations team.
Our work wouldn't be able to happen without other supportive staff. We aim to provide an environment that supports the mental and physical health of our students.
Our school leadership team is made up of individuals who pride themselves on facilitating the success and growth of teachers. The role of the leadership team is to maintain school focus on HTLA's mission and vision and to support teachers to improve their craft, growing their own classroom leadership capacity. As school leaders, we lead by example and by being comfortable standing at the forefront of creating a great school.
