They provide an amazing variety of curriculum choices for academics (math, science, technical, foreign language), as well as the arts (choir, music, drama, dance, visual arts) and sports. Many of the programs and activities are nationally ranked if not multiple year national champions. One of just a few schools to be recognized nationally for their AP course development.
The focus of LAHS is preparation for college entry, and it does a fantastic job at doing so. Students do quite well in a good learning environment. However, the availability of art and music programs is lacking. Athletic programs are not a priority although the opportunities are there
I graduated from this school and honestly if you just pay attention and do your best, los alamitos will get youa straight way into college. My daughter goes there and now if you want to take the PSAT the school will pay for it! Making it way easier. Their sports program is AMAZING. Los alamitos gets noticed by many colleges making it better academically and athletically. The closest high school near LosAl is cypress high which doesnt really give you preparations for college the way LosAl does. And Cypress' sports program isnt best, wont get you noticed by colleges. If your in the OC area, Los Alamitos would be an AMAZING place to put your child in.
I completely disagree with the positive reviews of this school. I am an alumnus from the late 90's and this school did not prepare me for my university studies at all. I attended a top university and I knew while at Los Al that I was not prepared for the rigors of university study. I read and studied on my own literature that was not offered in the English courses at Los Al to further prepare myself for university. I recall my Senior year being a total waste, majority of the teacher playing videos in class to pass the time, thus my parents had pulled me out of school on those particular days. The level of academics were incredibly weak and the sole focus of the school was football and cheerleaders. The students were extremely clicky and often pushed their religious views on others which I found offensive at a public institution. The teachers and staff were often unprofessional as well.
