Four students from Torrance High School have been arrested, accused of hacking into their school's computer system and changing scores on tests and assignments.

A teacher noticed some grades on her computer were changed and told administrators, who called police.

Four boys, sophomores and juniors, were arrested and released to their parents.

This is the second case in a week of alleged grade-tampering at a South Bay school.

Last week, police arrested three 16-year-old boys suspected of hacking into computers at Palos Verdes High School.
