Laguna Hills High School Reviews
After transferring into Laguna Hills High School from another school in the area, my expectations were exceeded from what I had hoped to find. In comparison to other schools in the area, Laguna Hills has a small home-town feeling due to it's lower enrollment and tight supervision. Kid's coming out of private schools tend to do better in this enviornment. We have had no negative experiences here I believe due to the school's strong empahsis on on academics and strict instruction on respect and character. All types of kids seem to fit in here with no one group bothering another. Everyone seems to be accepted for who they are. I am very pleased with our over all experience.
