My experience at La Sierra High School has been great! They have so many opportunities, and it’s so much fun being apart of a school that cares. They’re so supportive of my singing career and I’m happy that a lot has come from that. There’s nothing I would change.

Teachers and Staff are great here in all aspects! Especially in Avid and Health Academy teachers allow you to achieve whatever you strive for. They , including counselors like: Mr.Velasquez and Ms.Anderson keep track of your grades and move out of their way to help you whenever ! However, Health academy controls your entire schedule here so it keeps you out of any extracurricular activities and disables automatically when I'm the program ap classes, this could be changed !
La Sierra High School is a typical average high school. There are very few programs that stand out. The teachers are the one incredible aspect of the school. In this past school year I have been lucky to have incredible teachers. The staff are respectful. The sports program is not too good. Usually, only the varsity team of sport is good because the coaches only put effort into that team. La Sierra sports are not given enough money. For example, the softball team has old jerseys, horrible fields, and only one coach. La Sierra is in need og many things to become a star exemplary high school.
