Loara High school offers great range of teacher, academic opportunities, and extra-curricular activites. However, it lacks resources as provided from district to fully support students with their respective field of interest. The teachers and students are resourceful, as well as kind to one another. However, due to its demographic, some students can be a bit of a difficulty, to interact with. Nevertheless, this does not stop countless friendships made almost everyday between faculty members and students. Additionally, the clubs on campus provide a great range of opportunities for students to be involved outside of schools: ranging from multiple cultural clubs that participate in district wide events to honor scholarly clubs such as CSF and NHS that promote character and college preparation.

I like that Loara offers a diverse range of courses, clubs, programs, sports, and opportunities overall! Most teachers are patient and understanding. Loara has a lot of school spirit and most students are involved in extracurriculars. However, Loara definitely needs to be modernized and a huge issue at Loara is that a great number of students have no values and show little interest in learning, often disrespecting the staff and peers. Although Loara might not be the best school, it helped me explore many of my interests and prepared me for college. I want to give a big shoutout to Mr. Bannon, Ms. Dotan, and Mr. Phi (they are exceptional!!)
My experience in Loara High School was not as great as I thought it would be compared to other high schools I know. Such as, most of the students were rude to each other for no apparent reason because since there wasn't a lot of diversities within the friend groups, the school was split with the Latinos and Asians mainly. Also, there were many teachers who gave up with teaching and barely put it in effort towards the students' future education. Although, I did like how some teachers mainly the science and AP teachers put in so much effort towards their teaching and actually taught the students materials related for their future education. I wished the counselors would be more helpful in guiding the students to college because there were many things I did not know of for college that would be beneficial for me because the counselors' guidance was very vague and did not push us to work harder or showing us a path to take like which classes to take for our major, clubs to join, etc.
