    The teachers put lots of effort into teaching, and it definitely shows! They have plenty of resources, from mental health programs to dozens of different computers. Their electives are quite diverse, they are quite competitive with sports, but I believe their clubs could use some more awareness. I would like more diversity and better bathroom facilities, but overall it's a wonderful school.

    I have two daughters that attend Los Gatos High School. We have not had an unpleasant experience since they have been attending there. The teachers are great, the campus is clean and safe and the facilities are excellent! I would not want to send my kids anywhere else.
    LGHS is an amazing school full of lots of academic opportunities. Students have the choice to take many different AP classes, as well as a wide selection of electives. One downside is definitely the lack of diversity, both racial and economic. Despite the fairly limited student body, LGHS is an incredible school full of rigorous and enjoyable classes.
