I really like the college readiness program at Lucia Mar, especially at Central Coast New Tech High School. I think they have a great sports program across all of their high schools, and have up kept campuses. I also really like the counselors and college resources they offer. If I were to want one thing to change, it would be funding towards sports, I think that water polo and swim are very underfunded, we really need some new equipment. Not only that, the high school campuses have a pretty bad drug problem, if that were to get more attention I think it would improve the quality of the overall high school experience.

A good AP program at AGHS. Very college centered and prepares students for college. The facilities are getting an upgrade now because of the proposition that passed. We are getting new playgrounds, portable classrooms are being converted to real classrooms, new tracks and fields as well.
My experience from elementary through highschool has overall been amazing! The staff involvement with their students is what I cherished most, and they did a great job with that! I wouldn't want to attend anywhere else.
