Magnet Overview

 
Tetzlaff Accelerated Learning Academy is Los Angeles County’s first and only Magnet Middle School that provides a pre-Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum for all students. Tetzlaff continues to pave the way in standards based instruction, high expectations, and creating a culture of excelling students. Pre AP rigor allows core teachers to give standards based instruction in greater depth and detail with high expectations for student accountability and responsibility. The primary goal is to prepare our students for advanced placement course choices when they enter high school, which we believe will ensure their likeliness to enter college. Through a school culture that embraces diversity, technology, collaborative and organizational skills, our students will be well prepared for the 21st century.

Through partnerships with College Board, a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that helps more than seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success—including the SAT® and the Advanced Placement Program®, UC Los Angeles (UCLA), UC Irvine, (UCI) and the University of Southern California (USC), our teachers are provided with high quality opportunities for professional development. Tetzlaff’s staff is highly motivated to vertically team with our district’s high schools in order to properly align our curriculum with their AP programs.

We are truly excited to be the only Middle School in the district to pioneer such an amazing program. It is our goal to continue to set high academic standards in order for our students to achieve in high school and beyond.
