The High School complex is organized in a dense four-story configuration in order to mitigate influences on and bounding the site. The school site is relatively small and multi-story construction for the school complex was necessary to provide as much land for athletics and areas for individual learning courtyards as possible. Academies include Applied Technology/School to Career: Culinary Arts, Broadcasting, Technology/Multi-Media Production/Video.

Partnerships with a housing developer, the City of Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles USD led to careful planning to accommodate each entity’s needs. The complex is organized with High School functions that necessitate community access on the ground floor. The “front door” and main access point for students and visitors to the campus is the administration’s lobby or through a passageway adjacent to the centralized administrative offices so that access to the campus is limited and secure. Access to the main Gymnasium for sporting events, the Auditorium for performing arts events, and the Library are from the perimeter of the building complex.
