Welcome Parents

 
At Los Angeles High School we believe that Parent Center is a critical and essential link toward creating an integrated and inclusive school environment. At times the center's staff and volunteers can serve as a teacher, social worker, and parent advocate; and plays an important role in breaking down barriers, addressing issues of parent self-esteem, and providing knowledge and information to parents in a language they can understand.

Our Parent Centers provide a safety net for parents to gain know-how across a broad spectrum without embarrassment, provide basic language and social skills and can help parents assimilate to a new culture. It can also provide a portal, which links the surrounding community to the school and vice-versa. In short, the Parent Center is a critical enabler at LAHS to help parents expand their capacity to support their children emotionally, socially, and intellectually.
