Alta Loma High School was overall a great school. They have a good new program where seniors oversee a class of freshman for a short period of the day and help guide the freshman through high school and help with tutoring. Safety is great, drills were well organized. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is due to the teachers. I had severe juvenile arthritis until around 17 years old and had to use a 504 plan. Some teachers were not happy about the idea and I was often singled out in front of class. If there was more understanding in that area and cleaner facilities, the school would be a 5/5!

I wouldn't say I always loved my school. In fact, I hated every minute of it. The majority of my classmates are privilaged and white. And my fellow latinos and I were essentially cast out of the picture. This is when I decided to take matters into consideration and took action. I applied for ASB and many other clubs, and got rejected. So I decided to make a club of my own! Latin Moves. It was the best thing I could've possibly done. Not only did it unite my fellow peers but it made me actually have a little sense of school pride. I couldn't imagine what I would do without that tiny little club that meant so much to me.
I am so thankful I went to this school! Of course, everyone has different experiences when going to High School but overall I feel that Alta Loma's IEP program (created to better fit those with special needs), was amazing and since being in this program, they were able to put me into smaller classes since I had fallen behind on my mathematics skills and felt too overwhelmed taking college prep courses. At the time I had felt so trapped and had fears and doubts that I couldn't succeed but the teacher that I had for my math courses was so supporting, sweet, and cared so much about her students that I had really begun to feel like a part of a family. That is how welcoming I felt towards this program and if I could, I would highly recommend this program for any High School student falling behind in their courses to which they feel the need to go at a slower pace.
