Los Alamitos High School is an amazing school. There is a large variety of sports teams, activities, and clubs to get involved in. The academic standards are high across the board and the teachers are engaged in teaching. Some words of caution, if your child is unmotivated, needs a lot of direction, and struggles with large environments this may present challenges. Overall very pleased.
