10 Reasons Why Costa Is Really Great

1. People help each other out
Costa has so many clubs dedicated to helping charities locally and globally. Students and teachers join together to raise money and volunteer for things they are passionate about! And that is really cool. Many clubs raise money, some raise awareness, but the important thing is that Costa students really care about giving back to the global community.

2. Amazing new buildings!
New science buildings that ensure students get amazing hands on experiences and get to use new equipment. Even some of the older buildings have amazing technology and help make learning fun.

3. Everyone is blonde
Blonde is like a recessive gene or something, Costa is basically a crazy science experiment focused on furthering the blonde population. Its totally true because of science.

4. You meet friends for life.
You meet some of the people you will be friends with for the rest of your life. And you get like 6 hours a day to bond with them. And if you haven’t met your BFF so far– there are like 2,000 students. You probably haven’t met them yet.

5. Our sports teams are great
We win games. Run fast. Throw balls through hoops. CIF and stuff.

6. The teachers really care for students
Teachers at Costa are among the highest rated in the nation. Our teachers go above and beyond what is asked of them. Teachers are always going out of their way to like be positive role models, inspire the youth and write awesome letters of recommendation. They are pretty great.

7. Students are (over) achievers
But in a really positive way. We have way more AP classes than most schools, and we have to make more sections to accommodate all the students who want to take them. And if you get in over your head with your overachiever ways there’s always Study Hut to back you up!

8. Everyone has a secret talent.
At Costa, people have all these crazy secret hobbies like jiujitsu and rhythmic gymnastics. It makes the student body really diverse and also probably home of many future Olympians.

9. Amazing student activities and events
Costa ASB throws great school functions like dances, pep-rallies and more. Its fun to release some stress and see a student dressed up in the crazy horse costume.

10. You genuinely get an amazing education
Academics are taught, but life skills are learned. Students from Costa are well equipped to go to college and start making positive changes is the world. Costa paves the way for students to discover themselves and where life might take them.

Halloween Season

October 22nd, 2013
The parents and students know that we like to keep learning lively and fun at the Study Hut. We think this keeps the tutoring experience positive, and improves student-tutor relationships and communication. So, of course, the Study Hut is going to have an awesome Halloween party this year! We’re celebrating the festive occasion at our non-profit location in Lomita, and we’ll be spreading ghoulish fever throughout the day. We should have lots of candy, decorations, and games. Throughout the month, we’ve been decorating our locations with lights, streamers, skulls, and various other spooky Halloween items. For the party, our tutors are dressing up in pairs as Nickelodeon characters from the 1990s. We’ll have a judging of the best costume and prizes will be given to the best pair of characters. Tutors are already working on finalizing their costumes this week, and from the ideas I’ve heard being tossed around, there should be some excellent costumes and a fierce competition. We’ll be sure to post pictures of the winners and inspire others to express their creativity next year! Happy Halloween!!
