HighTech Los Angeles (HTLA) is a free, public independent Charter High School located in Van Nuys. HTLA is a diverse community of active learners with students who are productive, self-directed learners, engaged in rigorous, relevant work. HTLA is home to 370 students in grades 9 - 12. Our students represent the full socio-economic and cultural diversity of Los Angeles. HTLA is a Title I school. Fifty percent of our students qualify for the Federal Free/Reduced Lunch program, and about the same amount identify as a first generation college student. Student learning is enhanced by individual and group projects, and is integrated with real-world technology. With a deep commitment to impact the job readiness of students, HTLA is ambitious in the exploration of STEM studies. Simultaneously, as we have grown over the years, our humanities staff has proven itself to also be equally strong and demanding as demonstrated by our student’s future interests. All students receive a rigorous college–bound curriculum and must exceed the A-G requirements for entrance into the University of California as their high school graduation requirements.
Students, Teachers And Resources. STAR Fund raises money to support all HTLA students as they prepare for their future. Our motto is: “Working Together for Success.” HTLA is a leader in preparing public school students for college and careers. As you know, public schools are free to attend, at no cost to our families. However, the price of excellent education and college readiness is not free. Now more than ever, we need your financial assistance to continuing providing a stellar level of education for our students. A donation of just a dollar a day, far less than a cup of coffee, is an investment in a child’s future that will pay enormous dividends for a lifetime.
This year, the money raised from the STAR Fund will go towards paying the yearly fee for Paper Tutoring (live tutoring, 24/7 for HTLA students), the purchase of proper PPE and other cleaning and disinfecting supplies, upgrades to technology including replacement laptops and hot spots for students with limited internet access, and necessary classroom supplies (to use both virtually and once classes resume on campus) to aid teachers and students in projects and other assignments.
HTLA needs your support. Whether you give $10, $25, $50 or $500 dollars, ALL DONATIONS help the school provide an excellent education to your child. Suggested donation per student is $375. We hope you will be our STAR by giving as deeply as you can as we all work together to help our kids be the best they can be. Together, we’re sure we can reach the stars! We truly thank you for your support.
