This review is based off my first impression, but I am the type of person who can grasp main ideas very quickly from small observations. I am also a new junior attending this school. Firstly, I was not expecting much out of public schools, but the staff surprised me in a pleasant way. They were all very helpful and solved issues quickly; usually in just a day. They were all also very willing to help and assist me in finding my way around the school and understanding my schedule and courses (since I'm from a neighboring state, I was very confused by the EGUSD block schedule and everything). Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the kids that go there. My expectations could be high because I come from a close-knit charter school with a very low population but very friendly students. However, no one bothered introducing themselves or striking up a conversation with me; nevermind offering help when I was lost and confused. Disruptions and disrespectfulness were present in every class, and this was something I wasn't used to either. It could be the fact that I was a newcomer and a junior (so everyone already had friends), but my first day was not a good social experience at all.

Wow, what can I say. As a recent graduate of LC, I've enjoyed my time here immensely and was fortunate enough to go to a top US university. Here were all of the things that I observed during my time here: 1. The TEACHERS are absolutely the best. 90%+ of them truly care and many have been teaching for decades. 2. The counselors are sincere and are willing to help you out with any problems (personal or school problems). 3. The students. Man. I've been bullied in all the elementary schools I went to, even during middle school. And I'm sure I would've been in high school as well, or at least at another high school other than LCHS. Here, I just felt and observed that everyone with cool with one another. There weren't any "cliques" -- sure people belonged in groups but for the most part, everyone was immersed and sincere to one another. It's weird to say this but for high school kids, I thought we here were pretty mature. I think this is mostly due to the rich and diverse nature of the student body. And I laugh whenever I hear criticisms of fights - during my time here, I've only seen <4 and it's like, the last of what I'd think about when I think of my excellent time here at LC.

The teachers here are easily the best part of the experience. They really care about their students. I graduated last year and I still wish I was back. School was the best place for me. It's a very safe school, despite rumors to the contrary. In my four years there I only saw about five fights and all were broken up within five minutes. The facilities are just adequate, but it's a small school with a small budget (due to district-wide cuts) and I never had a problem with them. There are many clubs on campus to get involved with and they have two community service clubs.

This school has challenged me far beyond what I thought I was capable of. The teachers really care about students' opinions and situations. The administration is actively involved in student activities and very supportive and there are rarely any fights at this school. I myself am a junior at Laguna Creek and have only seen at 5 fights that only lasted a minute or so. I feel very safe and the band, photography, Honors, and AP programs are absolutely fantastic! This is a great school.

This school is amazing! The teachers actually care about the students. It is so diverse, and they are beginning to start the IB program. The AP/honors classes are great, and soon IB is going to challenge the students even more. I am really glad that this school is offering it.

My kids have done quite well at LCHS. The honors/AP classes have challenged them. The band program is fantastic!

The administration, especially the principal, has no clue on how to handle the disruptive students. Don't even think about sending your children to this school!

I feel like this school has turned my child around! Back in Washington, she hung out with the so-called 'druggies' and never learned anything. Here at LCHS, the councilors talk to her and listen to her. Her grades now are A's and B's, she's even joined a club. This place is not just a high school, but a miracle center.

I feel the school has a lack of leadership at the top. Too many kids just allowed to get away with too much. As parents we pay for too many administrators who just don't get the job done. I am sending my middleschooler to Consumes Oaks to get away from LCHS.

My son has done well here. The teachers, especially in the MPTA program are outstanding and caring. Have only had a few issues. Some of the students are disruptive and need more discipline at home, but the school seems to handle them well.

Hello I am a Freshman student at Laguna Creek High school and I would like to inform everybody this school is really great! There are teachers, counsilers, and career center advisers that really care about you! The school is not as ghetto as it seems as long as you stay away from the bad crowd! I have only heard about one fight on campus just a couple of days ago, and that was an anger management problem. Not bad eh? There are loads of opertunities for teens to achieve greatness!

This school is not a good path to success for your child. There are students that smoke in front of the school entrance every morning, unless of course, they are expelled. This school has a high number of poor attendance. Test grades stink more than their restrooms do.

I have had 2 daughters graduate from LCHS and a son who is a freshman this year. This school has given my children an exceptional education and desire to contribute to the community. One went on to UC Davis, the other to Berkeley. All my children have been involved with sports and they definitely strive to promote student athletes. Agreed that more parents need to get involved in activities.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 25, 2007

Used to be an excellent school but fails now to push its sports teams to be student athletes. Poor control of student body and a powder keg waiting to blow. Is not aggressive with academics and lacks a progressive plan to stay competitive with other local high schools. Terrible parent participation in activities.

LCHS is a wonderful school, full of teachers that care about them and thier grades. I am a freshman at Laguna and take it from me, its not hard to feel part of something fantastic. It is true that the overachievers overachieve and the lower people are pretty low and theres not very many averages, but the people in general are really awesome and motivated people. There are a lot of clubs and things to belong to that make you feel apart of something. I'm involved with STEP-a club aimed to promote equality. The band program is awesome, and there are a lot of ethnic clubs to join. Don't bash Laguna! The students are overall great and the teahers are too. I mean if we had more money...it would be different but we make the best out of what we have. Go Cardinals!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
