I do think that Markham is not located in one of the best areas in Los Angeles, but I do beleive that all the kids that take advantage of the programs they offer will succeed. Is not all about the schools anymore is about our kids making the difference. The magnet program is excellent so is the staff.

The Magnet program is excellent as are the teachers. There are extracurricular activities for every student's interest. I was very impressed with the counselors and how eager they were to make sure all students were on target educationally.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
