Jack L. Weaver Elementary School

- Los Alamitos Unified School District, CA
Parent: This is a wonderful public school that feels like a private school. As there is no geographic area that feeds this school, every single person who attends went out of their way to enroll. As a result, the school is filled with highly motivated students and extremely supportive families. In addition, the teachers are amazing! Weaver leans towards STEM education and the parent groups fund many types of technology and instruction beyond what is paid for by the school district. From what I've heard from parents whose children are now in middle school, they transition easily and are well prepared for middle school academics.

Freshman: Niche allows reviews to only be less than 1000 characters, so I'll try to summarize everything.
Academics/Teachers/Resource: MWAH! The teachers are all qualified and passionate about their respective subjects (many also have PhD's). There are many resources within the school that assist students' academic performance if they wish, such as the peer tutoring program, office hours, or simply having a classmate help you out.
Clubs: A surprisingly wide variety of clubs. The largest (and arguably best) clubs consist of Speech & Debate, Mock Trial, and DECA.
Sports: PE only offers the mainstream sports, such as soccer, basketball, and football.
Diversity: Nonexistent. All Asians.
Food: Most of the students hate it.
School Culture: Many of the students are talented and smart, but many of them at the same time are also conceited and condescending, which degrades the school environment by a considerable amount.

Alum: Nice faculty and teachers. Loved the after school opportunities for students. Such as tutoring and extra help with anything you need. Needs more diversity but other than that the school is pretty well rounded.
