I'm currently a Junior attending LBHS. I like it here! There are a wide range of clubs, sports and people here. Most people aren't enthusiastic about going here, but in my opinion it's a good school. We have IB, AP and honors programs (so a lot of opportunity to really give it your all), and a pretty view of the sound. The teachers are almost all passionate about what they do, and most of them have great senses of humor. The door is always open in the Guidance Office too! I can't speak for other Guidance Counselors, but mine always has time for me when I need their help. The only con I can think of is that the Wi-Fi is dodgy.

Great counselors! Some very dedicated and gifted teachers. The lunches are blah, uninspired. The building is situated on beautiful Reynolds Channel and there is a pond on the south side. Some landscaping would improve the hard lines and concrete exterior of the building, and the chain link fence running along the waterfront should be replaced by a more artistic secure choice.
Long Beach is nothing special. Pretty average programs: very few AP classes, IB diploma is offered, dual-enrollment, SUPA/Molloy courses. Bathrooms are disgusting and administration knows. Teachers often live local and are extremely nice, supportive, and educated. No school-wide activities except for Class-Olympics and Homecoming. The only dance is Senior prom. Vape addiction problems within the student body. Pretty meh academics, but we send a few kids to Ivy's every year. Most sports teams are really good, and we have a surf team. We're a pretty tight knit community but very much a public school.
