Aliso Niguel High School Reviews

Overall, I would say that ANHS is a good school; however, there are many negative aspects due to overpopulation of the campus. Some of these include: very long bathroom lines, more students sitting on the floor than at a table, large class sizes, and long drop-off/pick-up lines. ANHS has one toilet per 56 female students! To be in accordance with the state of California, there should be one toilet per 30 female students. The academics are strong and there are some really great teachers here! The sports teams are very talented and there is always a big turnout a team football games. I would say that our ASB, theater, dance, choir, band, cheer, and Dance Appreciation groups are led by good teachers and have had many successes. There is a great after school tutoring program for homework help and our AVID program is perfect for struggling students.

Overall, Aliso Niguel High School is a great high school to attend! There are great AP teachers that have been around for a very long time and prepare you very well. There are many lunch activities and school events for the students, and being a part of a sports team is amazing! The school is very supportive of sports, arts, and music, all while preparing you for college.
Aliso Niguel High School employs teachers of the highest caliber. Not only have some of my teachers taught me the core curriculum of their classes, but a few have also become "mentors" and "guides" that have directed me towards my scholastic goals and energized me into making the right decision in choosing my college major. Even though there are approximately 3,100 students at Aliso Niguel, there still seems to be a sense of community and camaraderie amongst the students. Sports and school spirit are deemed important, and pride permeates the halls as students spend their weeks, months, and years as a Aliso Niguel Wolverine!
