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.
Review Las Lomas High School
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.
The best part of Las Lomas had nothing to do with the education itself. I will admit, the education curriculum was definitely exceptional with teachers genuinely focused on how to make their students succeed and prepare in classrooms for other high school classes, college classes, and career opportunities. The real piece of resistance that made my time at Las Lomas so special and memorable is by far the people I met and the friends I got to bond with over the four years I attended Las Lomas. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone with academic, athletic, or any other extracurricular passion that wishes to see results with their high school.
