    Teachers: All of the IB teachers at the school have great knowledge on the subject and are dedicated to helping students lear.

    Extracurriculars: This school focuses mainly on academics, so academic clubs and organizations are the most popular and most-supported by the staff and students. Since this is an academic school, sports are sort of glossed over since this school is more known for its national academic rankings rather than its athletic department, thus our athletic department is severely underfunded.

    Overall Experience: The reason I think this school is great is because of the extremely diverse environment it has. In the IB program there are students of all ethnicities and religions. Everyone is extremely understanding and it brings much diversity and personal wisdom into the program. Everyone works together and tries to see everyone else succeed, except for the few individuals that any high school will always have. Those individuals who assume that by stepping on everyone around them that it makes the climb to the top easier. Other than those things I have loved my four years at this high school and would do it all again.

    Teachers: the majority of the teachers at mira loma care a lot about the success of the students, but mainly only about the success of IB students. Teachers tend to only care about the success of these students over the regular students at our high school. Overall the teachers that teach IB try to incorporate a lot of questioning of methods and situations one would encounter in the real world. Their focus is to make their students work outside of their normal habits and to incorporate many skills they have learned over the course of being enrolled in the IB programme.

    Overall Experience: Mira Loma High School was a wonderful experience attending the school for the 4years in one of their several eye opening programs which I was fortunate to have been involved in the International Studies program that helped me and many other students be prepared for college. The entire staff at the school is so wonderful that many students return to visit their previous teachers and help inspire the new students on good paths towards their futures. There's this annual event called SAR where the entire school comes together in a completion of the classes that reminds students of good sportsmanship, teamwork is very important, as well as making new friends and better bonds within classmates. Academic wise, all of the programs are excellent because every student is encouraged to participate constantly and no one gets left behind in the learning process. If I had the chance to return to high school I would choose Mira Loma, no doubt about it.
