LPS Hayward prepares all students to apply to, attend and successfully graduate from college. Through a rigorous academic program, students develop strong analytical and argumentative skills to be effective thinkers in any discipline. At LPS Hayward, students approach their academic work with a growth mindset and draw on a set of character strengths and habits to collaborate, problem solve and achieve their goals. We believe in the potential of every student to work hard, overcome challenges and live the life of their dreams.
Every student is on a path to college. To support them on this journey, staff put students at the center of learning. Students work with peers to find evidence, discuss ideas, and solve problems. College counselors provide students with tools to learn about, apply to and prepare for college. Support staff work and connect with students to develop skills that will allow them to live full, independent lives.

THE LPS-HAYWARD EXPERIENCE
CLASS OF 2015
My experience at LPS Hayward was extremely meaningful. High school was a very crucial part of my life that defined a significant part of me. From becoming a freshman, to watching my sister graduate as a Royal, to me walking the stage and making my family proud, LPS gave me the opportunity to grow, experience, and mature. My experience at LPS was more than just a common high school experience. This was my home away from home, and the funny thing was that everyone kind of knew that. It was a place without boundaries to learning and with supportive staff and students all around. I am lucky and thankful for the journey I went on for four full school years. Thank you LPS!
CLASS OF 2016
My experience at LPS was a million times better than the high school experience I had dreamed of. Although there are many high schools that could have taught me derivatives or literary devices as well as LPS has, there aren't many high schools that could have cultivated my identity and encouraged my pursuit of justice in my community. Not only am I more educated because of LPS, I've also become a more confident and understanding person.
CLASS OF 2018
LPS has always been a welcoming community with high expectations for students. Even though it is challenging I know that I am closer to achieving my dream of going to college. The work ethic that LPS has instilled in me has helped me in other aspects of my life. For example, I am now on the Hayward Youth Commission. Overall, my experience with LPS has been rewarding and enlightening.
