    Overall Experience: I would recommend Mira Loma to everybody. Even though we're known for our academics, there's something for everybody and everybody will fit into this school. My favorite moments at high school have had to do something with school spirit, excelling in academics, and spending time with my diverse friend group. Mira Loma is unlike any other and I think I've made the best decisions of my life so far by deciding to go to this High School instead of my local high school. All of the stressful nights, commutes, and hard work was absolutely worth it.

    Food: I never bought anything from the cafeteria or the snack bar so I won't be able to provide an accurate rating. All the information I have about school's food is from my friends.

    Administration & Policies: The administration and parent community at Mira Loma does a great job at controlling any situations that become out of control such as fights, or other misdemeanors. There are few fights on campus since the administration does a great job at keeping everything under control.

    Sports & Fitness: Mira Loma has average to below average quality of sports, but the school spirit, team spirit, and support for our sports teams are amazing. When necessary we come together for our school and fight for victory.

    Teachers: With a variety of teaching styles, and an incredible depth in their knowledge bases, my teachers in high school have encouraged me to do college level work in high school. As a result, I feel very confident in myself and the quality of my work while entering college.
