Parents and the community are very supportive of the educational program at Lompoc High School. Parents are encouraged to participate on advisory councils such as the School Site Council (SSC) and English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC). Our many active parent booster clubs support our athletic teams, band, agriculture and other programs. Parents are always welcome to attend school events including assemblies, college information nights, back-to-school night, open house, drama and dance productions, and graduation. Many programs and activities are enriched by the generous contributions made by the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) and many local businesses.
