Hello Prospective Parents and Students!

Thank you for visiting the GALA website and your interest in school tours! We know finding the right school for your daughter can be stressful and your year will be filled with school tours, applications, and crossing your fingers.  At our school tours, we hope to give you the information that will help you decide if GALA is the right fit for your family. At GALA, our mission is to build confident, powerful, trailblazing women who have the potential to solve the world's problems... or at least make the world a better place!

covid update

Due to Covid-19 protocols, our tours will be virtual. If we are able to accommodate an in-person Open House later in the school year, the virtual tour presentation would be a pre-requisite to attend.

GALA is a public school and can not accommodate private tours and we do not do "shadow" days.

Thank you and we greatly appreciate you considering GALA for your family!

 echoices info

  • If you plan to apply to GALA, you do NOT do that through echoices, you do it it directly on our website. Applications on our website October-January each year. 

  • Our application does not affect the number of schools you can apply to through eChoices. For example, you can apply for magnet schools through eChoices AND apply to GALA separately. GALA is not a Magnet and not a Charter. We are a regular LAUSD school and one of 6 application schools in LAUSD.

  • Our application deadline is different than eChoices.... January 1 at midnight.

tour before you apply

  • We HIGHLY recommend that you attend a virtual tour before you apply to be sure GALA is a good fit for your family. Virtual tours are September-December and you can watch videos HERE.

  • Please read the Frequently Asked Questions  before the tour. You can also access our school profile HERE.

  • Look through our website, uniform page, student pages, etc.   

  • We are a public school and we do not offer "shadow" days. We do not do student interviews and do not require testing. 

  • Entry to GALA is by application only. Applications will be online beginning October 1st with a deadline of January 1. Applications are not first-come-first-served. We do recommend applying earlier rather than later - well before Winter break.

“GALA has given me a community I don’t think I would have found at any other school. The school has allowed me to grow without the fear of being judged and has helped grow my confidence exponentially. My favorite thing about going to an all-girls STEM school is seeing girls in positions of leadership.”

- Class of 2020 Salutatorian
