Laguna Beach High School Reviews

I transferred here this year from another school in the area, I wish I never switched. The school is extremely clique-y because the Laguna Beach district is so small (meaning everyone knows everyone and they only hang out with people they know from when they were younger). The racial diversity is sad- most of the school is caucasian, I believe around 80%. The school in insanely tough on their students' work, teachers expect their students to completely understand a topic after learning about it for one day. In general, don't send your kid to Laguna Beach High School.

I would like to see change in the school year and bell schedule. We have earlier mornings than most schools and our finals schedule is stressful (finals are after winter break, rather than before). I've had a fairly positive experience with all of my teachers, and have gotten very close to quite a few of them. The staff generally seem to care highly for our well-being and supply us with a ton of resources.
Laguna Beach HS was a great high school experience. Very involved staff who care about the students very much! It was clear they wanted us to be as successful as possible after leaving. Very rigorous courses available, definitely pushed me to do better and aim high.
