Teachers are caring, but need more support from the students' families. Society/culture is molding children who lack respect and are heavily influenced by poor decision making, drugs, sex, lack of compassion for others and themselves. Parents are not investing time in their children. They are letting society/culture have too much influence. How do we expect our teachers/staff to teach these types of children? Wake up! Teachers have an incredibly important job. They spend the majority of the waking hours with our children. We need to help them by sending our children to school respectful, motivated, hopeful, and ready to learn. Please pray for our teachers. They need our support. Our children will benefit from it academically, and as individuals who will change the future.

Laguna Hills High School is a small school however, it offers a lot. The atmosphere is very friendly and the staff is usually willing to help regardless of the problem. In the two years my daughter has been here we have had a very positive experience. My daughter is very happy with her decision to attend Laguna Hills HS!
My experience in Laguna Hills High School is amazing and memorable. As someone with disabilities, I have always felt insecure for most of my life; however, studying at Laguna Hills High School makes me feel welcome to the point of feeling 'normal,' for once. Such feeling is liberating, and it was all thanks to the warm atmosphere radiated by my cordial classmates and students. Aside from this, the academics are excellent as well, as it motivated me to try harder in school--not just to get an A-grade, but to actually learn. This school has helped me prepare for college, and the only thing I would change about it is the lack of exposure towards electronic sports, which is usual in the school culture of many schools today. This is something that I have strove to change during my time here, and so far all is going better than I have ever anticipated. All in all, this school is amazing and if I could go back in time to relive my high school years, I will.
