Overall, Las Lomas High School has left a positive impact on me and the students are very kind and accepting of one another. However, as a student who has taken over 11 honors/AP classes I have noticed the major grade discrepancies and course discrepancies between teachers of the same subject. For instance, If two students take AP Environmental Science, one student is guaranteed no homework and is permitted retakes for every test. However, the student who received a different teacher receives a minimum of two hours of homework per night and only one test retake per semester. This applies to many courses at this school and the administration has done little to change it. Yet, I am thankful for the numerous resources and support that counselors and administration has provided. This past year I struggled with my health due to being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. The administration was very empathetic helpful with organizing certain accommodations, while I was in the hospital.

My overall experience at Las Lomas High School was educational and enjoyable. Besides the student environment, I enjoyed most of my classes. The students are very cliquey especially in a classroom setting. I liked most of my teachers, but there were a handful of them that were monotone in class and handed out a lot of busy work. The English teachers I had were all incredibly kind and clearly cared about the students. My most fond memories from Las Lomas was from my Japanese class. I took Japanese for all four years in high school with the same teacher. The Japanese program at Las Lomas gifted me with a tutoring opportunity, interest in the language, and a trip to Japan. After graduating, the Japanese 4 Honors class has the opportunity to go to Japan for two weeks. For the first week, every study lives with a host family in Tokyo. The second week consists of group day trips around Kyoto and Hiroshima. Taking Japanese is the reason why I am so grateful to Las Lomas.
Las Lomas is a friendly place. I was a transfer student and didn't know anyone when I first got there. Every teacher I had were nice. My counselor, MLH, was super helpful! The school nurse was responsible, too. We had a Collage and Career center in which the teacher Ms. F was very caring. She did her best to help us with applying colleges and all kinds of other things relating to that. In all, I had young teachers and experienced teachers, and none of them could I not say a good teacher (in a positive way). Besides, the drama department was outstanding in the district.
Fire alarm went wrong a few times. And there were a block down during my time in school. But the surroundings were generally safe!
