LACES School Community

The Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies (LACES), one of the first magnet schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), was established in September 1977 as part of a Court-Ordered voluntary integration program for Los Angeles city schools.  LACES continues this legacy and its pursuit of excellence in a program that provides an enriched, and racially integrated educational experience for oved 1600 students in grades six through twelve.  Centrally located, west of downtown Los Angeles, LACES students are randomly selected through the Magnet Priority Point System and reflect the diversity of the city with LACES students coming from all socio-economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.  The LACES student body is 70% minority (Black: 13%, Hispanic: 28%, Asian: 28%; Other: 1%) and 30% White.  Approximately, 52% of the students are eligible for the free federal lunch program. 56% of the students participate in the busing program. Over half of the student body is identified as gifted/talented and 40% speak a language other than English at home.

LACES provides a challenging curriculum in a humanistic school environment offering close and personal involvement between teachers, students and parents.  Courses are offered to develop academic abilities, artistic talents, and athletic skills. Modified block scheduling allows students to take seven classes, instead of the traditional six, allowing for more flexibility and options in selecting courses. Each class meets three times a week for over an hour. All high school students are programmed into University of California A–G requirements. 100% of our graduating class in 2006 went on to college: 22% UC, 27% CA State U., 12% CA private, 18% CA Community College, 18 % Out of State and 3% other.
