Laguna Beach Unified School District Reviews

I am incredibly happy to be attending Laguna Beach High School. The resources available to students, the quality of teachers hired by the board, the supports offered widely to all students across the board... It may not be the paradigm of an idealized version of modernity due to the "bubble" it exists in within the SoCal community, but the opportunities to students to learn and apply themselves uniquely to their own unique exploits is extraordinary.

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!!
Overall I loved my experience at LBHS I was born and raised in Laguna and the high school is an excellent reflection of the values instilled by the community; kindness, diversity, commitment to excellence. I think the teachers do a great job of interacting with students and ensuring that every student is taken care of and well taught.
