Miramonte High School Reviews

AP classes are extremely difficult while regular classes are ridiculously easy. Most students are nice but some can be snobbish and look down on you if you aren't wealthy, aren't "smart", don't play sports, etc. The diversity is slowly improving, especially in 9th/10th grade. Most teachers are very qualified for their jobs and but there are some outliers (see rate my teacher). Food is overpriced and repetitive. But overall a great school!

I have had a mixed high school experience. The school has a very strong academic profile, and the AP classes here are very rigorous. These classes can be extremely hard and can consume your schedule, while some of the regular level classes are a joke. While the overall curriculum is strong, quite a few teachers are lazy/clueless due to tenure. Given this, the majority of teachers are solid. The social scene is terrible. It is very white and cliquey, and there is a massive drug culture. The amount of pot/tobacco -even hard drugs- consumed on campus between and during classes is absolutely ridiculous.
Miramonte is a very academically focused school. As a student, I definitely feel like enjoyment has been pushed out in favor of high rankings and grades. Most students take APs, and grade competition is intense. Getting consistent and ample amounts of sleep is rare. The administration is generally efficient and good, however it did not respond well to the intruder alert that happened 2 years ago, with students confused over the vague instructions that came over the speakers. Diversity isn't that great; the majority of the school is white, with most minorities Asian. Even with its faults, Miramonte has prepared me well for college.
