Schools

There are seven types of Options Schools each serving a different type of student

City of Angels, A k-12 Independent Study School City of Angels School is an independent study school in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) for students who are unable to attend a traditional classroom environment. In the City of Angels, students, parents and teachers are partners in fulfilling the students' educational goals. The curriculum at City of Angels School is California standards-based instruction. We offer classes that fulfill the A-G UC and CSU general education requirements, as well as many elective courses including Advanced Placement classes. Students at City of Angels School must meet a minimum of one hour per week with their assigned teacher and receive 30 hours of coursework to complete at home. With the approval of his/her teacher, a student has the opportunity to concurrently enroll in community college and receive high school and college credits. Upon successful completion of all required classes through grade twelve, and after passing the California High School Exit Exam, students receive a high school diploma at our traditional graduation ceremony. City of Angels consists of many sites throughout LAUSD. Through the City of Angels Virtual Academy, students can also complete online classes including foreign language and Advanced Placement
Pregnant Minor Schools- Pregnant minor schools consist of small campuses located throughout the District. Their primary goal is to provide interim educational opportunities to expectant mothers so that they may continue their education and be graduated. Schools provide counseling by school nurses, information on health and nutrition, and pre-natal and infant care instruction.

Alternative School-Youth Opportunities Unlimited Alternative High School The alternative school, Youth Opportunities Unlimited (Y.O.U.) is a small school for dropouts between the ages of 14 & 21 who have not been enrolled in school for at least 40 days. The three primary focuses of the schools are educational development, employment training, and youth & family development. The school was developed as a model of community based, collaborative education between the U.S. Department of Labor, the City of Los Angeles, and the District.
Carlson Home/Hospital School  Instruction in the home or hospital is provided for eligible students in grades K-12 whose noncontagious temporary medical disability prevents attendance in regular day class for a limited period of time. The intent is to maintain continuity of the student’s instructional program during the interim period of disability. A home/hospital teacher provides instruction in subjects/courses correlated with the student’s school program to the maximum extent possible. It shall not replace the regularly required instructional program. Instruction in the home/hospital will commence when the attending physician authorizes service to begin, based upon the student’s ability to participate, and the parent’s authorization for temporary transfer of educational duties.
Continuation High Schools Continuation high schools are small campuses with low student-to-teacher ratios offering instruction to students between the ages of 16 and 18 who are deemed as risk of not completing their education. The goal of each student is to make up credit deficiencies and either be graduated from the continuation school or transferred back to traditional high school. Some continuation schools offer evening classes to serve high school students who are regularly employed 30 hours or more a week. The major emphases in the evening classes are occupational orientation and work experience while working towards graduation requirements.
