  • In all fairness Pomona High does an adequate job, it provides all the basic Necessities for a good learning enviroment.The staff and teachers are good at what they do and truly put effort into the daily lessons the teach. As far as student achievement goes there is clearly much to be desired, but i suppose you can't judge a school on mislead student's ,Pomona is a good school to attend and have many memorable experiences .
