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.

Everything is advance but isn't a good school community. Teachers are helpful and well trained. The Media department is amazing, they have all the newest tech and the always update the softwares and the systems. A lot of the students in the school are drugies, which makes the community hard to be apart of.
I love the sports involvement at LBHS! It's so much fun and a great way to meet friends. Laguna Beach High School is known for our high performance in sports such as: Water Polo, Volleyball, and Cross Country. The parents are avid supporters of our sports program and the students enjoy supporting our teams. The athletic facilities are fantastic and kept up to date. I love it!
