Los Alamitos Unified School District Reviews
They have a great academic system and offer several electives for students to try throughout junior high and high school. The rigorous workload in AP classes help prepare students for college. The teachers spend extra time before and after school to review the lessons with students. There are also several activities offered to involve all grade levels such as the “Friday Night Lights” football games, the high school dance clinic with the dance program, and the “All District” music festival. However, in addition to the great aspects, there are some things I would like to see change. Due to the demographics of the surrounding community, there is a lack of diversity and many of the students act privileged. Many minority students experience racism and bullying. When the students addressed the administrative staff about the issues, the staff tried to cover up the situations and made little effort to resolve them.
Los Alamitos High School is an all-around great school that excels in academics, sports, and the arts. The school offered many advanced placement classes and the teachers do a great job in getting the students ready for the AP exams, with most students passing those AP exams. The school is competitive in almost every sports and often finish in first or second place in our league. The arts programs are off the charts. The advanced mixed show choir has won nationally titles an unprecedented eight times in a row.
My experience in the Los Alamitos Unified School district has been one of a kind. This district has amazing schools that help students be their best selves academically. They have countless programs that teach student amazing things, from choir to football the district does an amazing job hiring staff to accommodate it all. I feel like I was given the best education possible in this district. Furthermore, as a new freshman in college I feel prepared to take this up coming year head on because of how LAHS prepared me.
