As a recent graduate from Mira Loma High school, I can honestly say it was and continues to be a phenomenal school. It has great academic programs, great sports programs, extracurricular activities, but most importantly great people. I love the diversity I saw at Mira Loma. Students of all backgrounds were welcome and always included in everything. They even have international nights where students get to share and teach others a little about their country, their language, their food, and more. The staff was always so kind and professional. Many teachers were always there to support their students both inside and outside their class. At Mira loma, everyone takes pride in being a Matador, the school mascot. More than just classmates, at Mira Loma we were a family.

It was a good school with good services. There were plenty of resources made avaible. However, there was a domineering and monolithic culture that was not conducisve to diverstiy of thought. Some teachers were bent on selling unacadmeic opinons despite not being related to the course at all. I felt there to be a negative emphasis on strictly academic pursuits which is not indicative of true learning or creativity. Creativity and authentic pursuit of knowledge was not authentically promoted. Rather, strict academic by the book memoriziation was the focus of studies. However, the programs offered were beneficially and helped to adapt to heavy college workloads.
Mira Loma is a very good High School for all types of students. They have a very diverse students and many teachers. Unfortunately, some of the teachers do not take their job seriously. The IB program is well developed and have a many students currently enrolled. IB is one of the best ways to prepare for college. Furthermore, the numerous number of clubs offer students opportunity to improve their communication and leadership skills. The staff are very nice and helpful. One minus could be the counseling with rude staff at the desk of the counseling office. Overall, Mira Loma is a great place for students learn and gain experience.
