Mira Loma High School 2

THEFT! Make sure your child takes summer school PE. My son has had 3 thefts from the boys locker room in 4 years. Locked lockers with required locks won't stop the thieves. The staff refuses to even acknowledge that a $900 computer was stolen Dec 2015. No one staff member returned my calls or emails. Computers are required for the school work but the school refuses to provide a secure environment.

Thank you to Mrs. Jacks, my Honors Biology teacher. You were the best teacher I had at Mira Loma and taught me to love and pursue biology.

Amount of homework: Don't know

This depends on each student. For some the amount is too much, for some it is just right. However it is usually never "Not enough." This also depends on the program your student is in. For many IB students, it is too much. However this teaches students to be able to handle such work loads, and helps them get ready for college. Many alumni come back to Mira Loma to tell current students that college is easy to handle because Mira Loma's IB program did such a great job of preparing them for it.

Develops respect: Agree

Mira Loma does a good job of letting students have a voice, and listening to it. However, like any school, faculty and administration will almost always win over students. This is unavoidable in the current time period, and has been forever.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

The diversity alone teaches more than any faculty member, homework problem, group assignment, or essay ever could. Students learn how to respect and care for people of different economic backgrounds, ethnicity, cultures, religions, political backgrounds, etc. You are looked down upon by peers if you show intolerance towards people who are different from you. However peers and students do not bully others into respecting one another, they reason with them. They ask why they think it's ok to be rude to someone because of their religion, they ask them to back-up what they're saying, students have discussions rather than fights. Students always ask questions rather than throwing a punch.


Mira Loma High School 5

Mira Loma is a great school for students seeking academic success and rigor. The IB Programme, which is offered for both 9-10th graders through MYP, and 11-12th graders through the Diploma Programme is reason enough to be apart of this wonderful school. The program challenges students not only to think deeper, but also to be a better person. As cliche as it might sound, Mira Loma truly teaches students how to be well-rounded. The diversity of the school is amazing, and helps students more than you think. I myself have learned to be more open minded, and I am constantly learning about different cultures and their customs, traditions, holidays, etc. Not only that, but the students and faculty at Mira Loma are more like a family than anything. Everyone at Mira Loma knows everybody. We all might not be close friends, but we all know each other, rather than being separated into cliques such as Jocks, Nerds, Preppy Kids, etc. that you see in the movies. Everyone's differences are celebrated and respected at Mira Loma. There is also a wonderful school bonding event that takes place second semester, called Sports-A-Rama. It's a competition between the four classes, Freshmen-Seniors, but instead of diving them it brings them together. This school has everything that will matter in the long run, it teaches students valuable life skills, and the academics are top-notch. There is much more to say about Mira Loma, but I think it is clear how great of a school it is. Please consider Mira Loma as a school that you send your students to, you or your student won't regret it.

Once again, check the results of this magnet high school against state and national rank. Look at the demographics of the students. For the most part, it's obvious that these Mira Loma teachers are a great credit to their profession!

Yes. Frankly, it takes persistence, grit and determination to achieve Mira Loma's success in International Baccalaureate course work, national awards, College Readiness Index and beyond with a very diverse student body and an economically disadvantaged rate of nearly 40%.

The old adage of "firm and fair" applies. To have superior teaching results, educators must have the proper level of discipline and decorum in the classroom. Mira Loma has that. Respect is gained through "leadership by example."
