Although many other schools may look down on us, Littlerock High School has made many improvements. We are known as "the poor school" throughout the antelope valley. I haven't met a person from another high school that doesn't know the reputation of our school as "poor". But, this doesn't affect our students. The majority of the school scores in the advanced-proficient categories of many state testing, this is a huge improvement from the previous years scoring in the below basic categories. The schools condition isn't amazing, and the environment inst beautiful, our sports equipment and uniforms are on their final thread, but the teachers passion for teaching and understanding of the students is what makes the school like no other.

I didn't like it. I was pretty much a straight-A student before I entered this school. Within the first week of being here, I was doing horribly. It's ultimately my fault, but that's not going to stop me from complaining about the flaws. First of all, the students are terrible. No, I did not have any experiences with bullying, but the students aren't exactly the sharpest in the Antelope Valley. Listening to their stupid conversations and opinions really made me want to quit school forever. Also, the staff are not very likeable. The teachers, for instance, will spend all of their time telling you how bad you are doing rather than encouraging you to try harder. You spend so much time switching around that you cannot build any bonds or friendships with anyone. The P.E. instructors care more about you doing what they say than your actual physical health, which is the point of P.E. in the first place. The mascot is the "Lobo" because it's not good enough in English. The commons are VERY loud and headache-inducing. The test scores are extremely low. I quit within a few months of going there and I had such a bad experience that I might have to redo the entire 9th grade at my new school.

I graduated Littlerock High in 2011; I have to say it was a good four years. When I started as a freshmen I have to say that lunches were horrible because of the A and B lunches; either A lunch was to empty and B lunch was too packed. The system they were using was really not helpful but after they changed that and just gave us all one lunch and more time it seemed much better and opened more food carts. The teachers are pretty good, they have more life then I thought they would have. They would teach us what we would have to learn and still have fun and joke around with us. Most of my classes were fun to be in, yes I did have friends in my classes but I didn t slack off. I did my work when I needed too, the teachers did their jobs, if the student had a bad grade it was not really because of the teacher it was because of the student not turning in work or missing class. Littlerock was a overall good school, we rarely had any fights and when we did the security would stop them right away. Littlerock is a safe school and the teachers are great.

The teachers don't give enough of a challenge for the students, nor does what they teach have any significant meaning; if it's even correct. The assignments are easy to do in a fraction of the given time, and don't require all that is given for the small papers.

I graduated from Littlerock High School and I absolutely loved it. I was involved in sports, student government and AP classes. The best part about the school was through my 4 years there I was never surrounded by drama nor academic problems. The teachers are great and I truly believe the people that go there are so polite and well educated. I got in to the university I wanted. If you think your child is too good for this school your going to let them miss out on a great high school.

I went to LHS for three years before transfering to a more 'elite' school called Serrano. I will say that wen i went to LHS i learned more than i did at Serrano and i had a lot more fun. When i changed schools i had to repeat classes i took the year before because i toped out my classes in LHS. I laugh at all you bickering parents because you don't realize how good the school is. You should have your kids come spend some time in an Iraqi school then you would think that LHS is made of gold. Oh yeah one more thing i am an officer in the United States Army and i am only 21 you do the math.

My daugher graduated from this LHS. She attended the last two years at this high school. She had transferred from AVHS. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed this school. We did notice there was more drama there than at AVHS. She adored and respected all of her teachers. They all prepared her for her AP tests for the next year, and prepared her more for college than she would have gotten at AVHS. The security was great. I believe all of the teacher's who taught my daughter were absolutely wonderful. However, I did feel that the teachers ran the school better than the principal.

I have had the distinct pleasure of teaching at LHS for three years now. The students are by far the most polite teenagers you will find in any public HS in the Antelope Valley. This is partly due to the caring disposition the teachers display on a consistant basis. I do believe that the students would benefit from more AP prep courses as oppose to reading and math intervention classes. If we set a higher standard by preparing our students to take AP classes instead of putting them in intervention classes then I truly believe we would see more graduates and matriculated students. But then again we are under the District's thumb and can only fund what they allow LHS to. Now, administration has received a bad wrap in all the previous reviews. I know first hand that each administrator wants the very best for the students, staff and school.

My child will graduate from LHS this June. When the bar is set at the lowest level, that is where most children will aim. I have control over my children and the quality of their work at home,but not when they are at school. To attend a school site meeting,where so few parents/teachers are in attendance(as I did recently)just breaks my heart. If parents and teachers don't care enough to try and improve this school,what message are we sending these children? What kind of adults will they be? I frankly am ashamed to call myself a member of a community where people are willing to complain, but not willing to help make a change.

Four years ago I did not feel safe on campus, it was horrible. But now (lthough I do not like the secuirty gaurds,)I will have to admit that they have stepped up there game. I no loner feel scared. Although the safety is good the education is not. I do not feel pepared at all for the AP tests or College. All new counslers but they aren't to bad. The school is not overcrowded. Facilities lack matinece in some areas. Lack of parent/teacher Dedication. Erin T

Ok first thing is first. Parents are the people responsible for the children first and always. People can not put the finger on the school when it is the parents fault for their children's failures. Ok LittleRock H.S isn't the best school in the world grant you that. But Me as a parent make sure that My kids are on track. I may be the naggiest mother at the school to the admin. But I am there making sure my son is getting the classes and the education he needs. And he is an RSP student.Blame everything on everyone else? Nope I learned that early on as a mother of 5. Any H.S is what you make of it. I have my admins that I don't agree with but I don't sit there complaining about it I am there going admin hopping getting things done for my son.

I must say that Littlerock High School is one of the worst institutions currently around. As a former student and current USC undergraduate, I can say with certainty that it horribly prepared me for college. The school is a joke. Administration cares nothing at all for the students, particularly because the students there have no future. Unreasonable and unskilled as they are, Littlerock's administration does a poor job to try to increase graduation rates, and the number of students that matriculate to the college level. The teachers at Littlerock are lazy and do nothing to challenge their students. They dumb down the curriculum to the level of the below-average student so that the few motivated students suffer. I would not recommend that you send your children to this school, but rather get them as far away from this school as possible.

I have had Two children go to Littlerock H.S. and have found it to be, in my opinion, just average. In the last couple of years the school has had problems with Gangs and violence on campus. The school is over crowded and lacks adequate supplies. It would seem that the only priority is to push the students out the door! At this time I am actually happy my child will be moving to another school for his last two years of High School.

LHS is one of the saddest public schools my children could attend. This shool is highly overcrowded, and the administration spends more time trying to look good, than actually doing their job. There are some good teachers, but they're few and far between. Some good counsolers. AP classes are there, but the get eliminated quickly. When my child graduated, he could not wait to get his diploma, so he would never have to go back. I will never send another one of my kids to LHS, I'd rather drive over 30 minutes to get to a better school. My child went to college, but it's a miracle given the inspiration he got at LHS. This school is busier rewarding troubled kids, the pay little to no attention to the hard workers who actually deserve it. Thats LHS.

Littlerock is like any other public school. You get the education that you strive for out of it. If you work hard, you will succeed. If you don't want an education, you will not get one. There are plenty of AP classes and I have found they try to accomodate anyone who wants to learn.

After sending two children through L.R. HS, we will not send our third child there. The bragging rights by the school administration used to announce 'we are now a Title One School' is not comforting to any parent and the racism is out ragous. They do not hesitate to drop AP classes for the kids that want to learn stating 'we so not have enough kids (out of the over 3 thousand going there) to fill one of these classes. I could go on forever.

Littlerock High School is a great local high school for our children. Sure, the overall average test rankings aren't very high, but that's just on average, not specifically meaning that every student is incapable of doing well there. Many extra-curricular activities and sports are offered to the students at LHS.

Another over-crowded AV District school with a very large transient population. The constant influx and out-go make for difficult teaching and force test scores to be lower. A large ESL and integrated Special Education population. The majority of teachers are truly dedicated, as well as the counseling and classified staff.
