On Extracurriculars: At Mira Loma High School, there are tons of opportunities to join extracurricular activities and all of them are incredibly fun and worthwhile. I personally played soccer, did volunteer work at soup kitchen and joined many clubs that were of my interests. The clubs available are incredibly diverse, there is clubs that deal with video games to certain cultures to sports and were openminded to anyone joining.

On Extracurriculars: The extra curricular that has been most involved is key club. Almost everyone takes apart in this club to obtain hours. They do everything from having fairs and taking part in labor projects.

On Resources & Facilities: The resources seem to be flowed into the academic program. The campus is very old and they are updating it now, making is worse. They are getting rid of all the trees and replacing the grass with concrete. It reminds me of a prison. Technology is okay, the computers always seem to be bugged though, but there is available printing which is handy. Guidance counselors seem to be busy a lot, but they care it's their job. College prep seems to just sit in a pile in front of the office. Tutoring is good, there are many students who tutor and they know what they are doing. Parents involvement is a lot with the ib program. There are no buses, mainly for special ed.
