I am a sophmore at avhs and i graduated from here. This school is awesome! I dislike the principal. He doesnt do $/@? Mr rodiguez is like rude and mean. But other than that the school offers many oppertunities, because of them i got into a higher math, the teachers are the best, just stay away from rodrigueZ

3 kids transferred here from Texas, from brand new school in a good neighborhood. I was worried about enrolling them at Yucca Loma. Am impressed with the technology and special programs and projects offered after school and in summer school. My kids are excited to go to school.

This school has too much drama, fights, and dating. There were threats to children that attended there and more fights. I suggest do not send your child here unless you want them in drama.Although the teachers are great educators ! The helpers are awesome! The ladies in the office are magnificent! If your child does attend this school they will make a relationship with the adults.So in conclusion this is school is pretty AVERAGE. The one thing i really love is their saying " Learning for all whatever it takes!" ~Annanoomys

I don't even want to give them a star....My son was threatend, verbally abused and picked on quite often. The principle is a not involved with the students. He takes pictures with the students on his rediculously flash yellow car. I pulled my kids out of that school because I felt they werent safe. Do Not send your kids here.

This school is terrible. This school has not proven to provide a safe environment for at least one child, your child could be the next to slip through the cracks.

My son was in Mr. Spencer's third grade class last year. Mr. Spencer has a way of reaching even the most unreachable child. My son soared with Mr. Spencer. Mr. Swick, Mr. Vick and the entire staff are wonderful. They encourage the kids and are friendly with the parents. The Booster Club could use more parent helpers though. The same members did every activity that came up. Not many new faces......Get involved! Help them!

Both my children have attended Yucca Loma. I was extremely happy with all but one of the teachers. My son went there from 2nd to 5th grade and all his teachers were really wonderful. My daughter started on Kindergarten and is now going into 4th grade. She has had really great teachers also - except for one. I am very pleased with the school overall. My son was in band, meteorology, and geology. They offer several other after school clubs including newspaper, rocket and gardening. They also have a baseball team and encourage parent involvement. They have movie nights as well. I am extremely pleased with the school and staff. It has been a great experience for both of the kids.

I have 2 children that are currently attending Yucca Loma. The children were transferred from a nearly brand new school in a upper middle class neighborhood so enrolling them in Yucca Loma was a bit unsettling. In didn't take long for me to see why this school has been around for over 50 years. The principal and all the school staff is fantastic. The school has better testing, more equipment and a better overall feeling than the one they attended before. The PTA could be a lot more productive and I think we need more parent involvement!
