Mira Loma High School Reviews

282 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Mira Loma High School
I believe that Mira Loma High School is very academically inclined and all the students are extremely motivated to exceed in whatever subjects they choose. That kind of drive and motivation helped me push myself more than what I thought I could achieve. Also, the fact that I was in the IB Program gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in a diverse environment where every student brings new ideas, their culture, their creativity, or any new insight to share with other classmates. My teachers were always there for me whenever I struggled because they sincerely wanted me to succeed. The only thing that Mira Loma lacked was funding and hence we did not have access to materials and resources that most schools around us had, especially in our science classes. We did not get much hands-on experience, which I would have personally enjoyed doing.
Every student is different and if you are the type of student who is self motivated and willing to succeed, Mira Loma is the school for you. The International Baccalaureate program prepares students to excel in the future. It blends high-level academics with global awareness, improving not only your academics, but your character as well. While some of the teachers may not do a outstanding job at teaching, you must be motivated to do well on your own. Along with the curriculum, they boast some of the best extracurricular teams in the nation. Their Science Olympiad and Science Bowl team has ranked extremely high at the national level consecutively over many years. Overall, Mira Loma is a fantastic school if you make the most out of the opportunities presented.
