I feel like this school gets a bad rep because of the many poor experiences in the early 2000s. The school has improved a ton (especially the food)!

Santa Ana High School, though not the fanciest, has helped me, and many others in my Latino community, a lot. I’m on the Track team, am a Cross Country runner, and an A student. I’m sure Santa Ana High School will continue to improve as the years progress.

My high school years were honestly the best 4 years ever. What I liked about Santa Ana High School is that the staff care a lot about the students. They make sure that the students work hard for their goals, to go to college and achieve what they want to be in the future. The athletic program is really good. The coaches are understandable when it comes to academics. Most students are really friendly and also motivate other fellow students to work hard in class and to turn in all their homework. Santa Ana High School cares about the safety of the students and do their best to make the school a secure place for the students and future saints. I strongly recommend for the students to go to Santa Ana High School. Once a saint, always a saint!
There are a lot of nice people on campus! The teachers, counselors, and administrators really help you and guide you to succeed. The students are also helpful and respect one another in many different ways. Every person in the school is unique. There are so many fun activities to do.
