Las Lomas is a wonderful learning environment safe from bullying or crime. It has very knowledgeable teachers who are enthusiastic about helping their students to learn. There is a plethora of resources including a large library computer lab language lab 2 gyms 3 playing fields a swimming pool and the best French teacher on Earth. In my experience at Las Lomas as a student I have only one piece of advice for the driven student stay away from the counselors.

Las Lomas is a very good school. the students are accepting and the teachers are generally great. there are a few teachers that arent the best (especially if you have a learning disability) but i have had a lot of good ones. there are lots of clubs and after school tutoring too. GO KNIGHTS!
I think Las Lomas is boring. There's this one rich junior I don't mind though. Otherwise it kinda sucks.
this school is absolutely perfect. I went here but moved 2 years ago and I thought id give it a review. the school is so accepting and because its small youll never be alone. everybody is very accepting and there is just an overall amazing enviorment. theres a lot of really good electives too which a lot of other schools don't have. Everybody knows everyone and its like being at home.
las lomas sucks. the kids there are very rude. im a sophomore girl and i cant seem to find any accepting down to earth people here. ive been begging my dad to let me transfer since i first started. dont listen to the other reviews. yes it offers great electives but it gives wayyyy to much homework and the teachers are very unwilling to help. i switched into independent studies because i hated this school so much and its not only me ive read reviews from different sites where people have the same problem. its in a generally wealthy area so the kids here are expecially stuck up. just trust me on this one.
Las Lomas High School is an excellent public high school. Not only does its test scores go up continuously for the last 16 years it also provides a comprehensive extra curricular program for students to explore their talents and make good use of their after school time. The leadership connects with the students and really have the students' best interest in mind regardless of their learning ability and socioeconomic status. I strongly recommend Las Lomas High School for any student who needs a high school education. Ellen Osmundson Parent
This school get worse year to year. The new vice principals are terrible and the feeling you get from entering the school is not as great as compared to other schools.
Las Lomas is a wonderful school. The campus is very well kept up for being around for so many years and the teachers seem to genuinely care. I feel that my children are getting a very good education and have the opportunity to participate in many different sports and clubs.
Do NOT send your child to Las Lomas if he or she has any learning difficulties. The teachers for the most part are unwilling to help. The administration doesn't want to be bothered. Many parents have removed their kids from Las Lomas because their assistance to disabled kids is non-existent. If your kids attended WCI and were successful they CANNOT receive that level of assistance or any at all at Las Lomas.
My children have had an excellent experience at Las Lomas both educationally and socially. Teachers and staff believe in open communication--our emails and phone calls are always answered in a timely manner. Students and parents are respected. Everyone is friendly and inclusive. The PTSA here is wonderful--they work very hard for all of our children and do a great job of getting students parents and teachers involved. Las Lomas was also given the US Dept of Education's Blue Ribbon Award this year. I believe these are hard to come by. My children are getting a great education.
Wonderful school my son loved this school so much and liked the teachers all the teachers are amazing the counsellors are perfect and everything is perfect in this great school. I highly recommend it to everyone you will love it. Thank God that my son was there now he is at the University of California.
My son took the Japanese course and it was great by far it was his favorite class and he learned a lot. The class had several Japaneses students and at parents night several parents where very complimentary of the teacher.
Amazing school--there is something here for everyone. The academics are strong the activities well-planned and diverse. With financial support from the community the facilities are excellent. A well-rounded school with teachers who genuinely care about their students and are knowledgeable of their subject-matter (most have MA's or higher).
Well above average with respect to extracurricular activities available. Dynamic principal. Most teachers know their stuff and work well with kids but there is some dead weight here and there. Principal and PSTA communicate regularly with community via email.
My daughter attended this school and found it to be a great experience. She participated in Sports and was a Cheerleader. I highly recommend this school to parents relocating to the East Bay.
The academics are outstanding. Parent and community support keep much needed programs from be cut from the budget. All extracurricular activities are great--although no marching band.
I've heard complaints about the Japanese courses; in general it's a good school.
Actually I was the student from 1967 to graduating in 1970. Long time ago but in many ways was the best part of my life. I had some wonderful friends that I have kept in touch with. A few great teachers that believed in me. Lessons learned if you yourself don't try you have no one to blame but yourself. Don't be a wall flower ask and you will receive. Jock geek wrong crowd they are in reality just like you. If you make the first move you may find a new life long friend. And finally high school is what you make it. Make the most of it.
