    Academics: Overall, the courses are rigorous which is the positive side of the academics at Alta Loma High School. However, most teachers are not as interested in all of the students' success as they should be. There are a few instructors who i found were welcoming towards all students.

    Overall Experience: At Alta Loma High School, I had an okay experience simply because most of my enjoyment came from being involved in the varsity soccer team. However, my academic experience was not so great and felt there was a lack of support from instructors.

    Teachers: Teachers are generally knowledgeable about their subject. However, higher classes such as advanced placement classes, have teachers that prefer to help out the "outgoing" students with a higher GPA.

    Overall Experience: Personally, my parents are very involved in my academic life. It can be intruding at times, but it is for the best. I've met other students' parents who seem just as caring for their children.
