Lompoc Unified School District Reviews

Personally my high school is excellent. The problems I see come from the main LUSD board. The superintendent seems very fixed on everything being “his way or the highway”. My principal was put on leave and is still not back, our school needs him, our school misses him. The main reason he was put on leave was because a past issue was brought up again, just so the superintendent could get him in trouble. The individual schools can hold their own for sure, but I feel that the power of the board that is respresenting our schools is corrupt. I wish it were better. It’s supposed to be for all the students (like me) but it seems like their focus is on less pressing matters.

Band Department is outstanding! Marching band has been in the top 10 for the last 8 years, in top three the last 6 years.
I feel like performance wise the district is a big lack luster and not as up to par in making sure students are college ready. They also have massive bullying problems that go unaddressed and are not taken seriously for students that are discriminated for their gender orientation or sexuality. A large majority of the funding in the two high schools go towards the sport teams rather than toward academic centered programs in a failed attempt to generate revenue for the school. The food is AWEFUL. It barely hits the mark for what is healthy for students and is disgustingly unappetizing.
