Some call it simply Central Los Angeles Area High School #9.
But for most of us nearby it's the Ramon Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts.
Call it what you will.
The culture blog Flavorpill is simply calling the Downtown L.A. school one of the "most beautiful and imaginative public schools in the world."
It's one of only two U.S. entries in the photo essay, featuring schools from Europe, Africa and Asia.
Do you agree?
And what do you think are Echo Park and Silver Lake examples of beautiful and imaginative schools?
