Many of them always take school works seriously. I would say that most of the students here are good at English than Math. Our teachers are dedicated, thoughtful and supportive. Our clubs and school activities have changed drastically since last year. I am not sure why it happens but I feel welcomed and opened to sign up for many events. I am so thankful to all the new facilities we have this year such as the brand new gym, a new set of lockers for sophomores, repair of swimming pool, new computers in the library and fixed building for the Art, English and Language Department. Students have the freedom to express their opinion in class. I think our academic stats are about average compare to other high schools in CA. Lobos population is mostly Hispanic and Asian students that live near the school area. I think Los Amigos would fit any students that have different backgrounds because we welcome all kinds of people.

As a junior in Los Amigos High School, I consider the school to have great programs to help students prepare for college. As a student in Avid, I know my teacher is always looking out for her students, helping them with academics, personal issues, or even talking to them if they ever feel alone. Our school also promotes clubs throughout the hallways to showcase the amazing clubs that are offered. I can definitely say I have made amazing friends and memories by joining clubs such as Key Club, Red Cross, NHS, and more. Joining clubs and volunteering is a fun way my peers and I stay connected and serve our community at the same time. With so many clubs, students are able to show their culture and school spirit weekly by hosting spirit weeks and displaying the benefits of their clubs during assemblies. Besides clubs, our school also offer all sorts of classes; however, since this is a some school it can be challenging to enroll in a class.
I’ve been a Los Amigos Student since my freshman, So far I’ve had good experiences everyone there are very educated and good manners. Going to Los Amigos High School we expect high educations but overall, it’s a good school!
