IPoly is a specialized public college prep high school located on the campus of Cal Poly Pomona. IPoly's award-winning program centers around innovative Project-Based Learning (PBL). Run by Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), IPoly has been open since 1993.
With only 550 students, IPoly provides a family-like environment. Students are given support and guidance to get into their college of choice. They are also encouraged to take concurrent college courses at Cal Poly and community colleges while in high school. IPoly students become global citizens, contributing to society through required community service hours.
