Because the school was established recently, all of the facilities were gorgeous. Additionally, some of the best teachers migrated from other schools to teach at this one. I was a member of the varsity soccer program for 4 years, which undoubtedly enriched my experience as a Mustang. The faculty, for the most part, enable success for students and the families of these students. Over my four years as a Mustang, I developed an understanding and an appreciation for the staff and peers I was surrounded by that made my experience everything it was. I will forever run with the STAMPEDE!

I am currently a senior at Yorba Linda High School, and I have had a great experience. The teachers for the most part are helpful, great at teaching the subject, and passionate about what they are teaching, however, there are the select few that don't like interacting with the students, making it hard for connections to be formed. In terms of spirit, it is pretty average, as many do go to football games, but ASB has formed a clique. It is often frustrating as ASB has become a popularity contest, but aside from that, the people there are nice, you just have to find your group.
As a parent, I couldn't be happier with the experience my child has had at this school. Beautiful campus with caring teachers and strong athletics. Highly recommended!
