Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (Arts High or LACHSA) is a Visual and Performing Arts high school located on the campus of California State University, Los Angeles in Los Angeles, California, United States. Founded in 1984, the public, tuition-free school offers both college preparatory courses and conservatory style training. Though it shares facilities with the university, the two schools' activities are usually separate. It is operated by the Los Angeles County Office of Education. LACHSA maintains a unique affiliation with International Polytechnic High School, which is also run by LACOE. The school specializes in the training of music, theater, dance, visual arts, and film. It is one of two arts high schools in Los Angeles that allows students from any district within Los Angeles County to attend, the other being Charter High School of the Arts in Van Nuys. Acceptance into the school is based on an audition process for the approximately 130 spots available for incoming students, about 90% of whom are freshman. In 2011 more than 1000 students auditioned, the highest number ever. LACHSA has four departments, Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts, with sub-departments that any student may participate in, such as musical theater and film. The Music Department has the most students, followed by the Theater Department, Visual Arts and Dance. [From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia] Modeled with Building Maker
