McAlister High School Overview


McAlister High School is an alternative continuous enrollment school for pregnant and/or parenting teens.  McAlister High School is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District and follows the same district policies and procedures as other schools in the district.

Our school is a small learning community which offers students from 6th grade to 12th grade personalized learning and a supportive, caring and academically enriched environment.  While students are pregnant and parenting, they can complete classes and earn a high school diploma.




Classes are organized for direct instruction to provide in-depth content instruction and individualized instruction to target specific areas of academic needs identified on State tests.  Teachers follow state guidelines and standards in developing curriculum and lessons.

Core classes, selected electives and parenting classes are offered as part of our curriculum.  Our mission is to emphasize instruction that will support our students to make responsible parenting decisions and prepare them for pregnancy, birth and infant care.  Students who attend regularly are able to complete classes and make up credits.  Students must meet all LAUSD graduation requirements in order to receive a diploma.
