This is a great school, I think you should take your child here over lapaz which is too overhyped,this is a great school with a awesome principal
Los Alisos destroyed me. In other words, it ripped out my soul and tore it into pieces, before shoving it back in and sending me off to high school. I came as a bright, happy 7th grader. I left with severe depression and social anxiety. Not only was the curriculum uninteresting and taught me nothing, but there was bullying and an overall judgmental attitude that the teachers did nothing about. I came to the principal several times because of the teasing, but absolutely nothing was done, and my tormentors got away with it easily. I hated going to school, and I did not feel safe there at all. I dreaded each and every day, and even had to leave the classroom several times as the relentless teasing drove me to the edge. I would not recommend this school, especially not if you seek a welcoming and nurturing environment for your child.
Los Alisos Intermediate School is a nurturing location that allows young teenagers a place to learn, make mistakes, and begin their early stages of puberty in a safe and warm environment. The teachers are engaging and caring, providing guidance with firmness and discipline.
I was very satisfied with the education this school provided for my son. The honors program is outstanding and is a great foundation for transitioning into high school as proven by my son's success.
This is a great school. Teachers are well credentialed and the honor programs are advanced. Both my children went to this school and are now well grounded in high school. Music program is under great leadership.
I am very satisfied with this school, it has very good education, especially the honors classes are very advanced, no fighting, bullying, & peer pressure. This is my daughter's first year here and is proud to be a lobo!
I am very dissapointed with this school. The teachers need to be more patient with the students and understand their needs. The school does have good honnors classes but the teachers and staff are very stuck up. I would like to have my go to la Paz since it has better reviews and is a really great learning environment for my child. Sorry Los alisos
My son has done so well at Los Alisos, he's entering the 8th grade. The principal and vice principal are caring and hard working. They show up to every school event and if they are hard on the students is because the students might need someone to be strick with them other then the parents. Love The Staff.
The principal of this school is the biggest jerk you could ever meet. He is completely out of touch with today's youth and much of the time acts as if he is suffering from a hangover. He yells at the staff in front of the students and groups gang members together in classes where students would be better off in separate classes. Good teachers leave this school each year due to the biased principal and his bullying attitude. This principal is a waste of taxpayer dollars and a poor example for our children
I love this school and all of its programs. The teachers are good and I have learned so much!!!
My son is in 7th grade and in Honors classes. Los Alisos is one of only 2 middle schools in the district that have full day Honors classes. My son is challenged. There are a few after-school programs, but that is what public schools offer these days. Jazz band and sports such as track are examples of what is at Los Alisos. PTO is weak, but parents can be very involved with their child's education. Grades are posted regularly, I check weekly, and teachers answer emails in a timely manner, usually within hours.
This school has been a big disappointment. It is probably fine for most kids, but our seventh grader needs accelerated learning opportunities which have not been available. Its outstanding music program dramatically deteriorated while my child was here, so that it is at best mediocre currently. It has therefore given none of the advantages of a huge school, with all of the disadvantages.
My daughter is attending this school. She is so proud of this school that makes me so proud of her. She is a straight a student and has a wonderful music teacher. Great job everyone. Keep doing what you have been doing. You are great. Payam Raouf
This school provides a student a good base to be succesful in high school. The ability to always contact the teachers through e-mail is priceless!
I am impressed with this school. Both of my children have been going since Kindergarten. Great principal and many teachers are great quality teachers too. I recommend pre-interviewing teachers to find one you believe would be a good fit with your child.
I am not happy with the school. I feel that they need to provide more training for the teachers as far as their attitude toward the children when they need more attention in learning. I feel that the teachers need to be more patient and uderstand that they are just kids.
