The teachers at Pomona High School are phenomenal. They help In any way they can and dedicate their free time to help you through difficult times. Many of the teachers are caring and kind they do the most just to help the students out in any way possible. There is much to learn in the world and Pomona High is where I learned it all from. The way the teachers teach the students is very eye catching and interesting, there was never a time where I was not satisfied with what I was learning. What I'd like to see change is the school spirit, the school spirit already is amazing but the Pomona Students could be more involved in school activities and sports. Cheering on your peers is the best team work you can throw out their. Pomona High gave me a very memorable experience throughout High School. Go Red Devils!

The teachers and students are really what makes Pomona High, Pomona High. Teachers here actually care if your understanding the concept of their class and you'll always find students you are able to relate too. There are a little cons to coming here. You won't be provided the best option of classes like in other schools, but in other schools, you won't be able to join awesome classes such as AVID. Honestly, it matters on what you make of it. If I was even an opportunity to do high school over but in a different school, I wouldn't hesitate to turn it down.
Pomona High School is very diverse and welcoming to all new students. The teachers, counselors, and administrators are all keen on helping the students graduate. Here you can express yourself in whichever manner you’d like whether it be art, clothing, or music.
