Lawndale Community Acacdemy is an amazing school. I attended Lawndale from 1991-1999. I graduated and went on to High School. I graduated High School in 2003 and now I am currently a Sophomore at Howard University. One of the Top Historically Black Colleges in the world and Lawndale helped me get here.
