PRINCIPALS 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!
