  • I was an academically failing the 11th grade by the end of 1983. I was a 16 year old with an attitude against the inadequate and dull teaching styles I experienced within the public high school system throughout California.
    La Paloma was the pivotal change I needed for my education. The Principal (at that time) evaluated each student and assessed their actual classroom knowledge. He was the only person, we as students, would refer to with the title of Mister. All other staff members were addressed by their first name. This was a better way to engage with students as individuals. It was mandatory for these teacher to back themselves with a Master's Degree in Psychology as well as their regular teaching credentials. Every student had to attend individual therapy sessions twice weekly with the assigned teacher (mine was Rolla Lewis). Students attended school on a minimum of 3.5 hours M-F. That would accommodate four classes. They could attend longer hours, but they had to earn the required credits per class. The grading system was not like that of public high schools either. Students were on a colored card grading system (Gold, Blue, White and Pink) and earned points in class that would add up to academic credits (30 points = 1 credit). The more credits the student earned, the better color the card... A=Gold // B=Blue // C=White // D=Pink
    LP students entered into an agreement upon turning 18 informing them of the increased responsibility as an adult, including accountability for attendance and how the parents were no longer held accountable. Students were also informed of the consequences if they not to comply. When a student earned the qualifying credits for graduation, the student's final assignment was to compose a one page essay telling what a student liked, disliked and learned as a La Paloma student and read it to the student body out loud. This was graded by the Principal.
    I am definitely a better person today thanks to the opportunity to attend and graduate from La Paloma Continuation High.
