Las Lomas High School Reviews
Las Lomas High School is absolutely TERRIBLE if your child is not an AP student or an athlete. The teachers are protected by the administration and the district so that even if they are in breach of federal law, they are not made to comply with an IEP or a 504 accommodation. The drama and ROP departments are great, but looked down on because they are not considered college prep or athletic. DO NOT send your child there if you expect teachers to actually teach anything but to the test, so that their Star-9 scores rise. It is a terrible and repressive atmosphere for children with learning disabilities.
It's a great school, wonderful school spirit. Most of the teachers here are very good. The drama program always puts on wonderful plays and musicals.
Some teachers could be a bit more friendly and organized but overall it's a good school.
