It's a pretty good school with many respectable teachers. However, there is no cafeteria so be ready to sit elsewhere for lunch. There are also some teachers that lack the real care for teaching, but this isn't most. Also, athletics are highly focused around football, so smaller sports aren't as supported/funded.
Honestly, I've really enjoyed my time at Mission. I think of all the schools in my area, the school culture really is one of the best. Everyone here is nice and inclusive, there is no such thing as bullying on campus, and overall, the people and teachers here are really some of the best.
Mission Viejo is a great school to attend. Great academics and athletics did not outshine the social factor. Everyone is super nice, and it is just a great over experience
just okay! the faculty are nice enough but i don't feel like the administration really cares about its students that much. i did not have a bad experience, but there is very little that makes me proud of attending the school and i do not feel a sense of unity with others on campus.
Great experience and was very involved in this school however the administration does not work along student life very well and some of the science teachers aren't the best.
Overall great school environment. I came in a bit late but adapted well. Bunch of extracurriculars to do as the high school is so big. It really made it easy to meet people. In regards to academics, it was surprisingly good. Coming from another school in the same district, I was expecting the same teaching level. However, I was quickly proven wrong as the Mission teachers explained concepts in eloquent yet straightforward ways that most understood.
Mission Viejo High School is a magnificent place to be for four years. It is a safe place with an accepting culture. The school spirit and pride is like no other. It is an experience that will be remembered!
Overall I have had a pretty good experience being a student here! I think the campus has a good amount of activities for students to get engaged and the staff has also been very helpful. I cant speak for everyone, but I was mostly happy with the teachers who taught me and really felt like they wanted to see me succeed.
Mission Viejo High School was a great experience, It was conveniently located and I enjoyed the time I spent there.
The teachers all seemed to understand how to connect with the students while at the same time stayed focused on the lesson. While not all students seemed to want to participate most did. Teachers did their best to make themselves available so that students could receive help and/or clarification. The campus was clean and open, making the environment feel less cramped than most high schools. Overall a great school with great staff and teachers.
When people think of MVHS, they think about it’s football program. I believe that Mission divides most of its funds to football and ignores other more important matters. I’m in Cross Country and we have thousands of dollars in deficit, and the school does not help. But still in most sports we are well known and move on to CIF or State. On the other hand, academics are not the BEST but are still rigorous and prepare for college well. During the pandemic, the teachers have learned and adapted well to the new system. Lastly, I personally have not had the food provided by Mission but my friends tell me it’s average. Mission has the best school spirit and always out yells the other teams audience. I included criticism of my school so that they could, hopefully, see where they are lacking and improve.
Mission Viejo High School gave me the resources I needed to pursue my dream in theatre. In my time at Mission, I have encountered many great teachers; and hardly any bad ones. There is a lot of school spirit and I was so happy here.
It created a warm and comforting learning environment and made every student feel as though they belong.
Mission is overall an incredible school. It has a ton of friendly students, and great teachers. They also have a wide variety of classes to take, and a lot of Athletics and VAPA electives. My only real complaint about the school overall is just the lack of spending to improve facilities. While we do have access to computers, and projectors, we still have several buildings that are antiquated, and need repairs, and I wish the school as a whole would focus more on improving these things rather then just putting more money into whiteboard desks that nobody likes. But overall, I still really enjoy my experience here.
I have had as good of an experience as I can at my high school. At Mission I joined many clubs like NHS, CSF and even played a part of running the Creative Writing club. The classes I take are college level and are taught by good role models. Though what id like to see change is a type of long term management and solution towards the mental health of students.
I love Mission Viejo highschool. The academics are great and they offer a broad amount of AP and honor level classes. They also offer an Agriculture class where you are able to raise your own animal in a farm, and is the only school in the district to do so! Mission Viejo Highschool is division 1 in almost all their sports, and get celebrities like snoop dog attending their football games. Not to mention, the campus is beautiful and the teachers are great at their job. Mission Viejo Highschool students are VERY likely to succeed during Highschool and after graduation.
Mission Viejo High School does an amazing job at making everyone feel included; no matter what your race or gender is. Teachers on campus make sure their learning environments is a safe space for all students.
