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!

My daughter is in her sophomore year at Miramonte and thus far, it has been a rigorous academic experience. I have 100% confidence she is getting an excellent education. Her teachers have been supportive and passionate about their subjects. I feel the teacher quality is far beyond that of the middle school, particularly for the advanced subjects (such as AP European History). For her, the overall experience has been socially inclusive and geared around sports. She is lucky to have a group of friends who are all driven to excel, such as her, which keeps her grounded. That said, I do believe she's the right kid for this school. You have to have a good work ethic to succeed here.
Even-though you are in this high stress environment, it's completely worth it. There are ample opportunities to get help and support and the pure diversity of courses and the depth and education that comes out of them are worth it. Prepares you AMAZINGLY for college! Very prestigious but in a good way. Go mats.
