Great school district! The focus of Los Alamitos High School is preparation for college entry, and it does a fantastic job at doing so. Students do quite well in a good learning environment. They have an amazing choir program which a lot of students get to enjoy. Athletic programs are also available. There are a lot of clubs, sports, activities for students to get involved in if they want to. It is very competitive, and homework and assignments for Honor and AP classes get overwhelming at times especially if you are an athlete with no extra time left after school.

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 was a school that prioritized academics as well as sports. They are a school that tries to do what is best for the students. However, there are times when things get really stressful as the workload continues to increase. The school needs to understand that students can not handle an extreme workload and focus on sports/ extracurricular activities at the same time. Other than that, LAHS is a decent school that does a pretty good job at preparing students for the future.
