STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Prepa Tec Los Angeles is a vibrant and diverse community whose purpose is to promote personal and intellectual growth. We provide challenging, engaging programs in a nurturing learning environment, devoting care and attention to every student. Embracing high standards of character, commitment, and achievement, Prepa Tec Los Angeles encourages students to think critically and creatively and to act ethically.

GENERAL INFORMATION

We believe that our curriculum should help students develop intellectual abilities and interests, social awareness, personal competencies, and a code of ethics. Hence, students explore courses in a variety of areas. The sequence of course requirements provides a balance between gaining a solid knowledge and learning foundation, exploring a wide range of inter-connected subjects, and obtaining needed skills for success in high school, college, and careers. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a wide range of opportunities and experiences, expanding their neurological capacity for life.
In the Middle School, we emphasize deeper understanding and connections, as well as learning how to learn. As students begin to take more responsibility for their own learning, the faculty members remain supportive and nurture personal growth. Teachers work to build explicit links between subjects, with a theme-based approach, in order to deepen students’ understanding of the world in which they live and to enable students to ask higher-level thinking questions. Our hope is to engender students’ sense of wonder and possibility and develop a belief in every student that they are a powerful learner.
Prepa Tec Los Angeles provides experiences that allow students to grow morally as well. We believe that we should prepare our students to be confident, independent, and responsible citizens. It is also our aim to help students learn to lead their day-to-day lives with compassion and kindness and to serve the needs of others. Finally, it is the fervent hope of Prepa Tec Los Angeles that students will have gained not only a personal vision, but also will take joy in the discovery and fulfillment of that vision. We work to endow them with the moral fiber to work through difficulty toward a true understanding of the way in which individual goals can harmonize with the greater good of the world. Prepa Tec Los Angeles’s programs are committed to this development.

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Welcome to Prepa Tec Los Angeles Middle School! It is an exciting year with growth, development and academic progress. Prepa Tec Los Angeles is a nurturing school where each child is valued for their own abilities, talents and learning styles as they prepare for 21st Century learning and skills. We take great pride of being one of the few schools in the southeast Los Angeles area to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework as a continuum. The fundamental concepts of the MYP are: Intercultural awareness, holistic learning, and communication. As a school community, we inspire students to quest for becoming life-long learners. Therefore, it is my pleasure to be the principal of such an outstanding school in this wonderful community. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you during the school year.
In alignment with the International Baccalaureate MYP framework it is our goal to provide each student with an engaging and challenging educational program that meets his/her individual needs in a safe and supportive environment. Our caring and dedicated staff hold high expectations for all students, both behaviorally and academically. To achieve this meaningful academic experience, it is essential that ongoing communication takes place. We welcome and encourage collaborative efforts with students, parents, community, teachers, and staff. Parent involvement and participation as well as encouraging conversations with your child at home will greatly increase students’ academic achievement. The best academic experience is achieved when students feel connected and the learning is meaningful. As we move through the year, the staff and I look forward to setting high expectations and supporting students to achieve standards, establishing engaging learning activities in and out of the classroom and providing ample opportunities to celebrate your child’s academic growth and success.

We welcome you to Prepa Tec Los Angeles Middle School!
