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.

The school is strong academically as it offers plenty of AP courses and the teachers for these courses are excellent. However, the teachers for regular courses are mediocre, some of them with no passion for teaching at all. The amenities are fine, although the bathrooms could use an upgrade. The school contains many talented high-achieving students who go on to Ivy league and private universities as well as those who go on to community college. The school is racially diverse, containing students of every ethnicity, but the most prominent race is white. The school is very safe as it is located in a safe city in Orange County. The school also have many clubs and activities to offer, including extracurricular activities such as theater, music, newspaper, sports, etc, as well as a diverse mix of student-run clubs and organizations.
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.
