We came from great private schools in Atlanta and had no idea what to expect from a public school here. From the moment we arrived on campus, we were greeted with warm welcomes from administrators, staff, parents and students. It has been nothing but pleasant surprises. We hit the jackpot with the academic advisor assigned to my children, but I am sure they are all wonderful. Can't say enough good things about this school.

Having had a child attend for 4 years, graduate and get into his top choice of colleges, I cannot say enough wonderful things about the teachers, administration and staff. Yes, the building and property are very nice, their equipment is top notch, but if you don't have quality people, you haven't got anything. Their numbers are getting higher, I hope they can handle the high enrollment without the over crowding at surrounding schools. I do wish they would open La Pata, this has always bothered me from a safety point, but I am confident with so many students enrolled the city will realize this needs to happen as soon as possible! It is a great school. You get what you put into it. The school spirit is highly contagious! I am excited for my next child to attend!

The administration is fantastic, engaged with student and concerned with overall academics and prep for college. Though there is a diverse attendance all students are treated with respect and there is a clear concept of what is acceptable behavior. Great school spirit. I could not say enough positive things about SJHHS. Only negative is the access to the school by vehicle or foot and the cost to park is $100 a year, which with mello roos tax funding should not be a reasonable charge, blame that on CUSD's issues with budget.

We love San Juan Hills! Our son went to Ladera Ranch Middle and now is at San Juan. It has been a great experience with wonderful teachers and great extracurricular opportunities. The Accelerated and AP classes are fabulous and there are many to choose from! The campus is gorgeous with a new weight room, certified trainer, theater with dressing rooms, and all new, clean facilities. Before we attended, I heard there was a possible problem with some hispanic gangs attending. I have seen nothing dangerous nor has my son. He loves it!

It's a beautiful school with wonderful and capable teachers. It is still a new school, forging a new path and creating itself. The principal has an amazing track record and will surely take this school to incredible heights.

The teachers are incredible. The facilities are top notch. The infrastructure has evolved fairly quickly. The location is absolutely ridiculous from almost any aspect.
