Las Lomas High School Reviews

I love this school! It may be old and not extremely rigorous compared to the others schools in the Acalanes Union High School District, but we have fun activities and school spirit like no other, so taking part in clubs and school events is a must - especially homecoming! After all, we have been rated as "The FUN school" among the district. We are also the most diverse school in the district in terms of representation. There always seems to be a shortage of teachers, but this year many have been hired so I hope it helps further strengthen our faculty and academic standing. Also, the teachers here are very understanding and supportive - although a few can be weak at teaching - even if they're wonderful human beings. Sometimes administration can be fussy but if you're polite and willing to get your work done, they will help you.

Academics : strong, offers variety of Advanced Placement classes. Faculty:
Mixed though mainly strong and supportive of students. I had 3 great teachers really who insisted and influenced me. Culture : location in affluent area supports entitlement in some students . There are students that are not reach and striving for success and contribution to the world. Like everywhere , you find your community! I founded Nature Adventure Club that helped me to find like-minded students. Facilities: improved over past two years. Good overall. Food: average, more challenging for vegan as myself . But I love cooking , so I make my lunch ! And pizza joint near school where I am working has great food for all palates.
Great School. The school has a very diverse community with great academics, clubs, and sports! Las Lomas has a small campus which is great for getting around from class to class.
