I liked that everyone was open to ideas such as dances that were not your typical high school dances or stuff to sell during lunches for students such as boba, pizza and more! The thing I liked them most about my school is that we are a very diversed school. We also have a strong sense of school spirit and we always support each other, especially with sports. I really liked how you can attend the school without having to worry about your safety being in danger as it it always safe and you always feel comfortable and as if its a second home. James Logan High School is an amazing school and I am proud to be a colt!

Pros: diversity, lots of different classes to choose from including a lot of different AP classes, great and competitive sport teams, mostly caring and compassionate teachers, provides AP, SAT, ACT tests on campus

Cons: very large (my graduating class was about 1,000 students), moderate quality food and the portions are very small, the bathrooms are not super clean, technology should be used more often by teachers during lectures so that visual learners can learn better!
I really enjoyed my time in James Logan High School. Not only were many of the teachers supportive and encouraging, they gave me inspiration to push myself harder as well! I enjoyed the variety of classes that they provided. They seem to be able to give students helpful information regarding their future plans as well. The information was easily accessible as they had a engaging career center. In addition, the teachers were also able to give good advice for career plans as well.
