A new elementary school, a new adult school and two new high schools for Eastside students.

In 2002, our youth leaders surveyed more than 3,000 of their classmates to identify the most pressing issues impacting Garfield and Roosevelt high schools. Overwhelmingly, students identified the main problem to be overcrowding. After conducting extensive research, our leaders discovered it had been more than 80 years since the district had built any new schools in the Eastside. In 2004, the LAUSD School Board voted in favor of InnerCity Struggle’s campaign to build three new high schools, one new elementary school and a new adult school.
