According to the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine are reportedly opening a high school in Los Angeles.
The duo previously came together to build Interscope Records into a powerhouse record label and multimedia conglomerate, and now they have turned their sights to helping give teenagers more opportunities in the L.A. area. The report noted that Dre and Iovine are looking to make the high school one of the most “sought after” institutions in the area. The plans for the high school have reportedly been approved by the Los Angeles Board of Education, and the school is supposed to be opening up in Fall 2022.
Dr. Dre spoke on the type of students they are looking to get in the school, saying:
“Here’s a place that you can go where there’s something that you can learn that you’re really interested in. That guy that didn’t have an opportunity that had to scratch and figure out things on his own, that had the curiosity but didn’t have these type of opportunities, really smart kids — we want to touch and give them this open door and these opportunities to be able to show what they can do.”
