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.

It is a very diverse community, so you will find friends of all races. Not to mention the student population is huge! So kids are bound to make many friends if they choose. Academics wise I feel James Logann could do A LOT better, they aren't the best when it comes to education. From what I have heard and seen Logan has pretty good sport programs, their football team is the top in it's division! Overall I enjoyed attending Logan, if you are a bright student, you will exceed very well, and probably get into your top choice of college. My experience at Logan I will never forget.
At James Logan, there are plenty of clubs and extracurricular events for all the students to enjoy. Logan being one of the most diverse schools in the country and one of the largest in the nation is pretty competitive when it comes to sports. But there is more to Logan than just the diversity and sports.
James Logan offers a vast amount of AP/honors classes for students. They even provide AP Physics 2, being one of the very few schools that offer this class. The faculty at Logan can be helpful when it comes to college or the future, especially since there is a room called the "Career Center" that is designated to help students.
The huge downfall to Logan is how the money is spent. Logan is pretty rich given the number of students attending but the faculty decides to spend the money on a new track. There was already a nice track and they decided to remove the old one and created a new one that looks exactly the same!
