Orange County's best kept secret. 1200 Students, rigorous academics and great facilities! The school is totally student oriented!
I loved the enviroment i was in. all the teachers and students. The programs and classes they offered were simply the best i have ever had.
Our 2 children attend Estancia High (one a recent grad) and we couldn't be happier with the school. Principal Mr. DiAgostino puts his heart and soul into his students. The cultural diversity adds to this school teaching the kids how to big one big family. The teachers are terrific, Ms. Broderick, DelosSantos, Dickey,Williams and many many others. My children both are in the AP/honors program and do as well as any AP student nationwide (maybe better!). Any student can participate in any sport or club and have an excellent high school experience. Give us a chance! GO EAGLES!
Estancia is such a great school. the classes, clubs, pretty much everything is the best! Our school spirit is amazing; also i liked how our teachers and counselors are involved in our school life. they are always there to talk and guide you through the right paths. even though its a small school, we're all a big family. i will miss Estancia..but im also glad that the class of 2009 is one of the biggest to graduate :) so if your thinking of sending your student here, do it! it'll give them an amazing and unforgettable experience.
I went to this high school several years ago and i think its a great school. The student body and teacher involvement in school activities is great.
I think EHS is a great school. I attended many years ago and now many son attends. He is in AP classes and plays football, and will also play other sports. He likes all his teachers. I also love that EHS is all indoor ! Definately a plus ! I get really tired of hearing other school constantly putting EHS down, they really don't know.
I think that estancia high school is a great school if it werent indoor!!!
My son is a sophomore this year and plays football. His coaches and teachers are all great. They keep me informed with important matters concerning my son. If my son is not achieving his best that they know he can do, we work with each other like a big family. Great school.
I used to go here and i thought that it was honestly the best school. It was small in a good way that everyone knew everyone and there wasnt mush of a clique scene. Everyone can be in more than one group. I was, I was a dork and the one that most people knew by the time I was a senior. The teahcers are great, passionate and down to earth with their students, and the rest of the faculty make it their priority to make sure that the students do well while in their school.
It's a great school with many teachers who encourage you to succeed. Mr. Sterling, the AVID teacher is one of them. Estancia is also very athletic and competitive in sports. It offers many extra-curricular activities and clubs.
Estancia High School is a great school. The Principal is very passionate about his job and loves EHS. Any child who wants to can be very successful academically and in sports. The people their care about the students and the academic standards are their for those who wish to take them on.
Estancia has been a great school for my two children. They are very proud of their school and the principal is very very supportive. Good-successful kids = parent & teacher involvement. It takes work and effort. You need to put forth parental effort. Estancia has been a great school for us.
It is good if you are in the advanced classes at Estancia, although they are limited on amount of each AP class because of the small amount of students who take AP courses. Good parental involvement by a small percentage of parents.
I think this school gets beaten down all the time but in reality this is one of the best schools in Costa Mesa. It offers a variety of extra curricular classes that really help.
Estancia is a small school, student body wise and is all indoors. There is an advantage in that some sports teams are desperate for players so if you child is not the best he/she still is able to play
estancia is a pretty decent school, though severly lacking in stability at the academic level considering how often teachers change as well as the curriculum and whatever else the principal decides is necessary to throw in there. the ssr and ssw stuff was just unbelievable. ill forgive ssr because reading is fun though. too bad baseball isnt as good as it should be, but other than that, athletics are suprisingly tough for a school that draws 1200.
I attend Estancia High and I think its one of the best schools in Costa Mersa. The teachers are great and all the students too, in Estancia every one knows every one and since its so small its much easier for the stundents to know whta is going on in their school. So overall I really think Estancia is the best school!
We have been so pleased with Estancia. We considered tranfering out prior to attending - we would have missed a hidden jewel. Great teachers and administration have given our children excellent high school experiences. I can't say enough good about the school and now the sports programs have really taken off!
When we investigate Estancia we found that every parent (bar none) that we talked to - and had a child at Estanica - loved it. Only parents that didn't have children there were negative. We have since joined the love it catigory. Good teachers, administrators that care, good sports programs, and helpful teachers that care.
This is a solid school, supporting multicultural backgrounds. While students are not allowed to wear white t-shirts, and are hugely restricted by parking space, the staff somewhat cares, and puts in a decent 6 out of 10 into the cirriculm.
