The Academy of Media Arts (AMA) was created in 2008 as a small learning community for students interested in the digital media arts. It has evolved over the years, but has always sought to foster a community of learners focused on creative and collaborative project-based learning.
The Biomedical Careers Academy (BCA) at Lawndale High School prepares students to take advantage of the tremendous career opportunities available in health and science. The hands-on, project-based, and problem-based curriculum engages students, allows them to explore the wide variety of health care and science career options, and equips them with knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a career or further education in the biomedical sciences.
The Marine Science Academy (MSA) prepares students for the rigors of a four-year university science and/or physical geography program, with a special emphasis on marine related issues, technology and career opportunities. This mission will be accomplished by a group of committed teachers maintaining a science-based academy in which all students are engaged and claiming ownership of their learning. Students will be provided with a solid framework in which they will feel safe to take on challenges and create their own educational opportunities.

Our summer reading program for the 2019-20 school year will reward students for reading any novel of choice and completing a project! Students can submit projects to their English teacher during the first week of school in August. We encourage students to check out books from the Media Center, borrow from the public library, or ask teachers for book recommendations! Also, students are free to choose any genre, title, or author, so long as the book's reading level matches his/her capabilities. We hope that you all find this as an opportunity to find the joy in reading again! Please contact the English Department Chair, Ms. Lee, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Happy reading!
