My daughter attended HMSA for 3.5 years and finished her last semester at Lawndale High School. She is now enrolled in a 4 year university and she is doing well as a college freshman.

Yes its all true this school is very rigorous, but it helps this is my third week in this school and its been hard. I used to not do my homework in middle school but for the first time I have tried my hardest.

My school is challenging, statistical, cramped, and tiresome. Strangely I wouldn't change going there for anything in the world. My school has taught me to become a stronger, wiser, independent and goal oriented young woman. I have ambition and drive that can not be taught any where else. In the beginning ...  Read more

I recently graduated from HMSA and yes it was tough and rigorous experience but the staff and the coursework had a mass amount of wisdom and morals within it.

Pg 1 I am the parent of an African American child that graduated from Hawthorne Math and Science Academy (HMSA). Honestly, I did not like the fact that the school was majority Hispanic due to my own bias. When my child began at HMSA, there was a wonderful African American principal who pushed and encouraged ...  Read more

To be honest, this is a great high school. Even though I only attended for 2 years, I learned a lot. I am now in college and have seriously faced the reality of how demanding teachers can be. For those who complain that teachers overreact and are too tough. Well, it's true, but nothing in this world ...  Read more
