We, as a brotherhood, are devoted to developing relationships based on trust, communication, and respect.

We are loyal members of our group, regardless of race, and are committed to furthering the growth of our brotherhood and our neighborhood.

We challenge historical stereotypes and avoid any racial negativity that may hinder our progress or limit our success.

We are determined scholars who are devoted to the moral, social, and academic standards that we have set for ourselves and our peers.

We believe that hard work and dedication will set the foundation for our future and will be the main stay for our personal development.

We are a brotherhood.

We are the Poly Male Academy.

The LB Polytechnic High School Male Academy Vision

It is our desire at Poly to create an atmosphere of success for our male students. It is an atmosphere that is based on a sense of brotherhood and a belonging to an alliance that is dedicated to the sole purpose of becoming a successful man. It is a holistic environment that is focused on empowering our young men to not only accept academic and social challenges, but to conquer them. We believe that when these young men are given a meaningful purpose; they can accomplish a tremendous amount of good for themselves and their community.
