Mira Loma High School Reviews

I like the diversity of the school as well as the well established academic programs available. The IB program provides students with the academic prep needed in order to be ready for college and every opportunity to be successful in the college of their choice. However, there is a large divide between the IB students and the non-IB students, which I would like to see changed. I anticipate the integration between all the academic programs at Mira Loma and for every student to be given equal opportunity to be successful in college. Most teachers do a good job of educating the students through challenge and rigor, however there are some teachers that lack in their ability to maintain leadership over the students in their classes. In terms of the social aspect of the Mira Loma, I enjoy the school events like dances and SAR. Mira Loma is quite diverse and the school is very welcoming to all cultures and ethnicities.

Entering high school can be scary but if you emerge yourself into the diversity offered you'll have no fear left.As a student I've had the privilege to share a classroom with people from all around the world.I've heard stories about students lives, these students come from countries like Afghanistan,Fiji,and Iraq.Along with the diversity at Mira Loma are programs to help enrich students.The International Baccalaureate program at Mira Loma is a world wide known program meant to challenge students with rigorous courses so they’re prepared for college.Others programs are The International Studies program,International Passport Program,and the Special Education Program.With many programs to choose from everyone is placed in the program where they can learn the best.We also have numerous clubs and sports that anyone can get involved in.If I had to comment on anything at this high school would be that we are under resourced,meaning we never the proper funding for new things.
I really wish every student was treated the same and it wasn't so toxically competitive. There were many times where I questioned my own capabilities and intelligence because of poor teachers and the established social system within the school. The sports are poorly run and perform at about that level in comparison to all other school's in our district. On the other hand, Mira Loma does challenge you and if you can bite the bullet and over come the rough parts, you develop a thick academic skin and an independent sense of self. You really do learn how to study on your own, and make decisions for yourself.
