Lompoc Unified School District Reviews

I have been a student of the lompoc unified school district for 8 years now. La Honda, Buena Vista, VMS, and Cabrillo High all seem to have similarities embedded into their systems. All have regulations that keep their students safe and provide a safe and focused environment. Their rules follow basic guidelines to ensure all students have a good educational experience, but lenient enough to have their students have creative freedom in order to express themselves.

In elementary school, I was surrounded by down to earth people. Everyone was kind and my teachers were fair. Vandenberg Middle School was interesting. I was admitted into the National Junior Honor Society. I started to learn more about myself and my study habits. Cabrillo High School is unjust. Most opportunities are not equal because of nepotism. Many students who deserve to be recognized are overlooked in favor of students who are the family members of staff.
Great time at Cabrillo High. Faculty is very knowledgeable and eager to help students. All other students are nice to each other. I have had great experience at school with my friends enjoying life there. All my teachers have been very helpful counseling me about colleges and happy to write me letters of recommendation to the colleges I have applied to as well for any scholarships.
