Mira Loma High School Reviews

Mira Loma is about as diverse as it gets, and the student body takes pride in this. Everyone is very friendly, but after the first year, most people settle into their groups. I would not call them cliques, however, as the groups themselves are diverse and everyone is still very nice to other people. I personally did not encounter much peer pressure at Mira Loma, and I would say that most of my friends were very good influences. The people at Mira Loma are driven, accepting, competitive, spirited, smart, and so much more! There are all types of people at ML, but I would say that the average student is very focused on academics and rather liberal.
Mir Loma High School is a small school but there are many great people there! The environment feels safe, welcoming and there are people of all different backgrounds and cultures to make you feel comfortable! However, the school was built a very long time ago and could use some remodeling.
Mira Loma High School has a very rigorous education program, and offers the International Baccalaureate program, which gives students a chance to advance their studies and learn more. Some teachers are a little lacking, sometimes leading to a need for self study. However, for the most part, teachers do their job very well, leading to a fun and informative experience in the classroom. The campus itself, however, is very old, and needs renovation. The lack of lockers leads to having to carry bulky backpacks everywhere, but at the end of the day, the International Baccalaureate program and helpful resources for learning provide by adults make up for a lacking campus.
