Principal's Message

Dear LAAMS Family,
As we embark on a new academic year, I am filled with a sense of gratitude for the strong bonds we have established within our school family, which truly forms the heart of our community.
Our commitment to provide an optimal educational program for every student is a priority. We are committed to providing each and every student with a solid, nurturing educational experience that fuels students’ unique ambitions to excel and achieve his/her potential. We strive to create an environment where our students feel safe, supported, and empowered to grow both academically and personally.
We believe in preparing our students not just for success within the classroom walls, but also for their journey in the world beyond. We are dedicated to cultivating a well-rounded education that equips our students with the skills, knowledge, and resilience necessary to confidently face any challenge.
It is with great pride that I stand alongside our incredible team of educators as we guide our students through this important phase of their lives. Together, we are academic warriors working tirelessly to unlock the brilliance within each and every student.
As partners, Los Angeles Academy Middle School has transformed to more than just a place of learning—it is a vibrant community. Let us embrace our shared responsibilities and continue to foster an atmosphere that promotes growth, mutual respect, and a love for lifelong learning. With your continued support, I am confident that together we will shape the future of our students knowing that our collective efforts prepared them to be READY FOR THE WORLD.
Warm Regards,
Ruben Hernandez
