this school is a great school to get an education.... if you want to play sports; water polo, swim, soccer and girls softball are the best sports at our school... but the football team has not been so good for the past couple of years..... but it is an excellent school to get a very good education....  the ASb is great and the honors, AP classes and langaudes offered are great....

La Serna is academically challenging... Which is good for most students. BUT, the students here... It's way differnent. We are the most hated school in the district towards students. we are EVERYONES rivals. The funny thing.. is we encourage it. Mostly the people on the team.. are stuck upp.. thinking they are "it". Hahaha Good Luck Lancers(:

La Serna seems to be a more challenging school academically, 2010 was a most difficult year for my freshman.  It seems as though fighting was at a high and interferred with a lot of my daughter's attitude and desire to stay at the school.  I have a Sophmore and a Junior and I am very worried about how 2010/11 will treat them.  I have chose to keep my girls in La Serna, but like anywhere else in todays society, it is a huge challenge.  I am in hopes that they will remain in La Serna until they graduate and try hard to maintain their focus, "Education"
Schools need a good Leader, and more sports.
