45 Parent Reviews for Los Alamitos High School

I completely disagree with the positive reviews of this school. I am an alumnus from the late 90's and this school did not prepare me for my university studies at all. I attended a top university and I knew while at Los Al that I was not prepared for the rigors of university study. I read and studied ...  Read more

I transfered to Los Al this year from a high school in Georgia. I did not come to the school with incredibly high expectations but i am severely disappointed with the lack of attention paid to each individual students' needs. At my old school I was in all honors classes on my way to AP courses my junior ...  Read more

I'm on my second child at LAHS and have to say it's a very fine public HS. It is big and lacks some facilities (track, old gym, tiny tots sized pool) but who cares when the counselors, teachers, coaches are easily accessible and care. There are a lot of clubs, sports, activities for a teen to get involved ...  Read more

Los Al is a great school! My son will be a senior next year and his high school experience has been great. He has many friends and says he will miss this school after graduation. The teachers have been wonderful and my son's counselor has been fabulous with helping him prepare for college. We have ...  Read more

Los Alamitos High School is an amazing school. It surpasses in pretty much all aspects and has talented students. I had to move to another part of California and so could not graduate from Los Al, and it definitely does not compare to Los Al. Appreciate the ethnic diversity, academically, musically, ...  Read more

This is a large high school that was designed for a maximum of about 2,600 to 2,800. Currently it is over 3,500 and that creates problems such as large class sizes, and smaller percentage of the student body can make a sports team, or cheer etc. The school started taking out of school district students ...  Read more

I find the constant criticism of 'cliques' beyond annoying. My child moves from several 'cliques', if you will, daily from his friends in sports, to friends in Jazz Band and other musical groups, to those involved in ASB and Honors/AP programs and beyond. You get back what you put into it. If you ...  Read more

After a very positive experience with the elementary and middle schools in Los Al, I am very disappointed with my child's experince in high school. There are several teachers overseeing important core curriculum classes that simply need to retire. Too old to effectively interface with today's youth ...  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.
