Laguna Beach Unified School District Reviews

LBHS is very great school. The one thing that could be better is to create a more diverse school. However, living in laguna, there isn't much diversity on a culture setting. Academically wise, we rank one of the top schools in the nations (or something like that, basically we are a very great school). One problem is that our academics is so good, that people feel like a failure for getting B's. We are constantly surrounded by overachievers, which, in a way, pushes students like me to become better. However, the result is that there is a huge amount of stress put on us, laguna beach higschoolers, to get into the best colleges or just get at least a 32 on the ACT...which is hard stuff!!

As a parent of two high schoolers I can say it is the closest to private school without paying private school tuition. It is very well funded through school foundation that has tremendous suppprt from the community. If your student is a traditional learner she will thrive. If he is non traditional or has ADD or other learning disabilities it is not as easy. The teachers are good with a few exceptions for some of the tenured math teachers who don't teach. I would say math teachers are their weakest link. There are however some very strong science and English teachers. The arts are also strong. Great parent involvement and good counselors.
Great High School, with the sterotypical High School experience. It would be great if there was to disband all the cliques that exist.
