I graduated from La Mirada High after attending both John Glenn and Norwalk High. My mother worked at each of the said school and I had to go where she was working. La Mirada is definitely the lesser of the evils. Academically its average. Just like any other high school in America if you are involved ...  Read more

Although I know students that have done well at La Mirada, my family has been very disappointed. I believe that if your student is in the Matador Academy honors program, they will do well. However, if you have an average or struggling student, do not expect much. I have met with some very supportive ...  Read more

I have 2 students at La Mirada High School and it is our local school. Many students come from Norwalk to attend this campus. The school offers many clubs and social activities. The library is opened at lunch and after school until 4PM for student use. It has many new books, magazines and Internet connected ...  Read more

Very supportive of their honor and AP students. Their Madador Scholar program includes teachers, students and parents. The teachers are excellent and if your student is motivated they will be supported by teachers, all the office staff as well as other honor students. They are striving to bring the ...  Read more

This school is really supportive if you put your effort into school activities, sports, and/or academics. A lot of people complain our school doesn't offer much but if you put an initiative and put yourself out there everyone from teachers to our principal will back you up.

This school isn't that even good. The teachers are horrible and the students are bad as well. There are a lot of fake people at the school and there are a lot of pointless rules as well. All the school cares about is sports and not so much on academics. The jocks here think they're all cool. I don't ...  Read more

Overall LMHS is your typical high school. I would however rate it much better than its counterparts like John Glenn and Norwalk. My daughter went to Norwalk before and it was terrible. LMHS is far better and the students and parents are more involved.

I'm a Junior at La Mirada High. I thought this school was amazing until the new administration started changing all of the rules. Now we don't have as much freedom as we're used to having. We all miss our old principal. He was a great inspiration to all of the students and motivated us as much as possible. ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
