Huntington Park College-Ready Academy High School opened in 2005 for students in grades 9th through 12th. The school focuses on college prep for every student. They focus their efforts in low-income areas where achievement rates are not as high as other areas in California to ensure that all students have the same opportunities of attending college upon graduation.
Among the core subjects students can choose from other courses. Those include computer arts, dance, drawing/painting, theater/drama, Spanish, cross country, basketball, cheerleading, softball, track, P.E., volleyball, debate science/technology, community service yearbook, newspaper, student council and academic contests.
The reviews from parents state that the teachers are kind and engaging. Students and parents do agree that while college prep is supposed to be the focus it is not and that is frustrating. Parents were also concerned with the test scores.
