Laguna Beach Unified School District Reviews

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.

At Laguna, there is a great emphasis on academics. However many of the teachers lack teaching skills and qualities leading to a lesser education than what could be possible. They do a great job of recognizing and preparing for AP tests but lack any notification or prep for SAT subject tests.
I and now my son have attended Laguna Beach USD for the majority of our schooling. I attended a few grades else where it was proven that Laguna teaches its children better than the rest. I am proud to be able to give my son the chance at a better future by sending him to LBUSD. Even with a learning disability he his thriving in school because his teachers take the time to work with him when he doesnt understand.
