There are a lot of biased teachers. The school can enforce better rules to teachers as well as students. Usage of Technology should be expected from teachers since grading is based online more often and most teachers need to start learning how to use technology. Office staff can be a lot nicer when things are asked, some give attitude or a bad stares. Positivity should be highly enforced due to a students mentality. Counselors should be available in the morning, some arrive by 11 AM which is not right since there are students needing helping before class begins and there is no one to assist. Teachers need to agree with each other when it comes to events in order to avoid stressing students over which event is more important. The school should be more cooperative within itself. Despite all of this, it was an “okay” experience.

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!
Pomona High school has a lot of things that every single person will love to do. The sports are amazing, the rallies are so fun where everyone can participate. There is always something to do no matter who you are. There are amazing helpful teachers. There is plenty of people that motivate you to get good grades and that you can do whatever. I recommend to join any sport and to participate in as much activities as you can because from my experience at Pomona High every activity I participated in was worth my time.
