Current and prospective families and alumni are expected to attend the open house, which will showcase numerous programs at the Olympic Boulevard campus. The school’s museum studies class will debut the new L.A. High Museum in the Ray Bradbury Library. The event also includes an art show by the Integrated Community Arts Pathway (ICAP), which is working to integrate more arts studies into the school’s curriculum.
Additionally, two large L.A. High School banners from 1948 that were discovered at a local estate sale will be unveiled at 6:45 p.m. in the library. Programs spotlighting the L.A. High parent center, academics, athletics and cheer, science fair, robotics, culinary arts, band program and drama courses will be included.
The open house precedes the school’s centennial celebration and fundraiser on Oct. 20-21. The school was founded in 1873 in downtown Los Angeles and moved to its current location at 4650 W. Olympic Blvd. in 1917.
