It was a successful turnout at LA High School’s Open House last Thursday. To families, prospective parents, students, and community, LA High School’s Open House showcased its academic diversity and richness. On the ground floor there were clubs, performances by students, an impressive science fair, MESA and Robotics demonstrations, and delicious food for anyone who missed dinner. On the second floor, the core academics were highlighted – English, Math, Social Studies – as well as special programs like AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) and Teen Court.
Especially notable during the Open House was the ICAP Art Show. ICAP, or Integrated Community Arts Pathway, is an exciting new series of art courses bringing much-needed creative outlets to LA High students. The show took place in the beautiful, newly renovated Ray Bradbury Library and featured an installation of an impressive variety of art. Of particular note, was the premier student curated exhibit of LA High memorabilia. The museum will soon be installed in the planned LA High Museum. The museum exhibit was highlighted with the unveiling of two large banners from 1948, recently donated by alumni. The woodshop, ceramics, fashion, and art displays depicted the creativity and stupendous talents the LA High School students possess. The displays of work were all accompanied by delicious and artfully crafted pastries and savory appetizers created by the Culinary Arts students. Every visitor was incredibly impressed and enjoyed their evening at LA High School’s Open House.
