I have loved attending Miramonte High School! Over the past few years, there have been significant improvements in our school with the adaptation of block scheduling and moving finals to be before winter break. Miramonte has extremely rigorous academics, though the school has been implementing more support resources for students.

The Miramonte experience is complicated. On one hand, you have fantastically funded programs, excellent resources for students, and top-rated teachers, however, this comes with the challenge of enrolling among the most privileged, narrow-minded, and whitest students you can imagine. Not to mention the toxic and soul-crushing environment of competitive perfection. B average students feel like failures here. Overall, great education but it also low-key broke me.
The social scene at Miramonte is bubbling and alive, but academics are far from lost in the shuffle! I've loved all four years here, and although there's been a fair amount of chaos and tragedy, the administration has handled it remarkably well and resource availability is at an all-time high. I would recommend attending to every student in the East Bay!
