Going to Trabuco Hills High School has inspired me to achieve my dreams and grow to accomplish my ambitions of success. Although some of my teachers were not the best, certain teachers had pushed me to do my best and prepared me for the rigors of my future classes. The diversity of classes provided by this school span over a wide variety of career choices that one may want to pursue in. The coaches that I've encountered for sports have all been great and experienced in what they are doing. However, the cafeteria options are not a good place to buy food! Their options are very disgusting, and there are barely any healthy choices for students to choose from. On the other hand, Trabuco Hills is a very safe place to be compared to most high schools, and this school puts lots of efforts into safety drills and anti-drug use programs to ensure that it is a safe learning environment.

I love Trabuco Hills High School! From my experience, most teachers at this school actually care about me as a person and want me to succeed. They put a lot of effort into helping me be successful and understanding what I am learning. Also, the campus is very clean and tidy. The staff are all very helpful and willing to listen. Whenever I need help in the office, the staff are happy to help me and seem to be great at their jobs! Something my school could change is helping students to be more aware of activities and ways to be involved. I love being apart of school activities but sometimes it’s difficult to when or what is happening around campus. Overall I love my school and have really enjoyed my experience there.
Trabuco Hills offers a unique variety of extracurriculars and activities. I feel that THHS is a school that really emphasizes a student's wholistic growth both personally, creatively, and academically. The teachers that I've been fortunate enough to have truly go the extra mile for their students. My film teacher, Mr. Sautner, is one of those teachers that shows up to school before the sun comes up and stays late everyday to help his students. I feel that THHS puts a lot of effort into the AP, IB, and college preparedness courses, which is great! However, I feel that students who have a different path in life often get left out of the mix. We have a great auto shop at our school, but no auto shop class since the teacher retired years ago. Some students are put into 2 PE periods, when they could be spending their time learning practical skills that would prepare them for success in the real world. Overall, THHS is a great school with a majority of really nice students and teachers.
