The Long Beach Board of Education, continuing its efforts to establish stronger standards on academic achievement and dress, Tuesday night approved the creation of an all-academic high school similar to the highly regarded Boston Latin Grammar School. The school board, which pioneered the use of school uniforms in elementary schools, also voted in a stricter dress code for more than 20,000 high school students in the state's third-largest school district.

Mary McLeod Bethune School, part of the Long Beach Unified School District, is the educational home of a changing group of 10 to 20 students in kindergarten through eighth grade who live in shelters, motels, cars or transitional housing.
