Academy Produces Student Leaders

The Long Beach Unified School District's Male Leadership & Math Academy Culminating Event was held recently at Marshall Middle School, where middle schoolers from throughout LBUSD celebrated the completion of a successful year in a program designed to boost academic achievement, reduce conflict and violence, and help to cultivate student leaders.

Fewer clashes and reduced tensions between students have been reported by schools because of student involvement in life-changing interventions, which include eye-opening speakers and field trips to colleges and museums, additional counseling and mentoring, and an emphasis on college and career readiness.
