Rancho Dominguez Preparatory Reviews

What I like about Rancho Dominguez is that it's a very welcoming school. From the staff to the teachers and students you feel welcome safe in an environment like this. Theres many opportunities you can take on while you are at this school. Theres a lot of sports, clubs, AP courses, college classes, and magnet programs offered that can benefit you toward your college career. This school is also very inclusive due to the fact that it's a middle school and a high school combined. You get a variety of many students and teachers that you get to meet along the way while you attend this school. Overall if I were to recommend Rancho to a friend id definitely would say 10/10 attend here you'll love it. Lots of diversity and inclusivity. That's something some students or parents like to keep in mind towards when looking for a school. Also most importantly the staff is very aware of whats going on with their students as well as their safety. Theres always security along with cops just incase.

At Rancho Dominguez Preparatory School there is a diverse environment. Administration and Teachers are welcoming and keep you motivated at all times. They do everything so that we could succeed in life. Our principal, Mrs.Lew, provides us with resources that could help our education. However, our school has a low population and there isn't much school spirit. Although, there is a small number of students I would like all tlsrudents to participate in school activities. By doing this we can show that we are in school where everyone is united.
I am a parent and what I like about Rancho Dominguez Prepatory School is that they help kids succeed in life and I think it's a great opportunity for my daughter Kerra Houston to return to Rancho Dominguez because I want her to continue to stay in school where she feels comfortable with people she knows and even the staff and teachers there are very nice so hopefully Rancho Dominguez review my daughter's IEP again so I can return her because she needs to be back in school immediately.
