Pomona High School Reviews

Pomona high school is highly focused on sports and while they show some interests in other areas it is not their priority. They do show a slight interest in the arts through there PAH (Pomona Arts and Humanities) program, but again it by far does not rank even close to athletics. Pomona has a average range of classes to take including, but not limited to AP, Honors, Avid, grade level and intigrated classes. The lack of school spirt among the student body is extremely unfortunate. The obvious tension between many different groups of people does cause problems for the over all environment the school try’s to pressent.

There is a great feeling of support with all the school spirit and opportunities to support others in their activities. The administration strives to make school effective and prepare the students. The teachers care a lot about their students, and I'm lucky enough to have such great teachers. There are a lot of different options for activities or to just be a part of the community, and they are always expanding. I have done theatre and band all for years and I even want to pursue theatre because we have such a good theatre company.
The community with in Pomona is great. The support you can receive from teachers is amazing! Also the participation in school events is great such as football games, school dance, ad spirit weeks.
