As a current senior at Los Altos High School I have been able to view the school from each grade level. The academics here are rigorous, each student being expected to take at least a few AP and/or honors classes before graduating. The teachers, knowing this unspoken expectation, try their hardest to make the classes as enjoyable and easy as possible, while still covering all the material needed. However, despite this, and much alike many other high schools, students can stumble upon teachers that are, well, not pleasant. Other than the academics, Los Altos has okay sports programs, not being the best but also not the worst. The only downside of this high school I would have to say, is the lack of school spirit. Contrary to the traditional high school experience, students here do not take school pride seriously, and rallies, as well as dances, tend to be bland.
