I don’t know much about Long Beach Polytechnic High School other than it has a bunch of good places to skate and has been a spot where the cops don’t hassle you for years. When I pulled up I parked outside of the Auditorium where I noticed a nice 11 stair with a couple of rails on it and thought to myself this spot probably gets skated a lot.
I arrived after school was out and its kind of weird walking around a school and taking pictures so I walked up to the front and took some pretty cool shots and worked my way back around the school and back to my car. As I walked back past the the Long Beach Polytechnic Auditorium I noticed about 5 guys there on bmx bikes and they were setting up to do some filming. Its kind of funny when you look at a skate spot and think to yourself that would be cool to skate and then come back minutes later and see they rail getting used. Anyway I am sure they were trespassing and I don’t condone trespassing so that is all I am going to say about that.
Long Beach Poly has been the backdrop for many commercials, television shows, and films and the list of professional athletes goes on for a long time. Some of the more famous actors that went to Long Beach Poly are Snoop Dogg, Cameron Diaz and Spike Jones. John Wayne also studied here for a few years as well.
