My son received a good educational base for High School. However, the teachers seem over burdened and distracted. Overall, please advocate for your child so she or he is not lost in the shuffle. He liked many of his teachers, but was relieved to be out of the school.

I believe this school provides a quality education. With California is a budget crisis, SLO Unified School district have be strategic in planning and managing funds. The schools in San Luis Obispo have been more fortunate to not have to reduce faculty and staff. My daughter has improved in her learning skills and is prepared for high school.

I am just finishing my second year as a student here at Laguna Middle School. I had a pretty good experience here, and I think it has prepared me for high school. I have very good grades, but the classes are still challenging enough to keep me from being bored. I think most of the teachers here are very good, and many of the students are happy here. Some of the advanced classes, English and math, have too much homework. Also I think that the selection of electives are too limited and classes are too large (this is probably because of budget cuts). But I think that the sports programs are really good and there is always help available for a student who needs it. Overall, I have had a great time at Laguna and would recommend to others looking for a good public middle school.

i am a student and i HATE laguna. if it burned down i would be happy. the teachers gave me detention for getting a week ahead on my math homework!!!!!!!!!! all teachers hate you except for ms. delmartinie who acts like a good normal outstanding teacher should. one teacher is so evil to prevent cheating she makes you take of your back packs, jackets, and you have to use her supplies, after she checks to make sure you have nothing written on yourself!!! the staff hate us, there is no trust, and i do not feel safe when i walk down the hallway and people trip me because im blond. do not send your kids to laguna if you want them to get a good education.

The students, parents and teaching staff have one common goal - a quality education! The students and staff are mutually respectful and dedicated! The parents are appreciative and provide support. Laguna Middle School is the best.

My son who likes most things liked this school too. He liked his teachers some of whom I thought were either treading water or have some archaic idea of education something like 'My standards are so high that it is nealry impossible to get an A so I must be good' and including rote memorization as learning. I thought it was absurd for my son to spend his Thanksgiving vacation writing extended literary essays due that Monday.

I am a student here at Laguna, and I looove it! Though sometimes I feel like some of the kids around me are better than me, and I feel like I might be teased. But other than that, I feel very safe, and secure here. I know that all of the teachers will help me when I need it, and I dont feel insecure. I love all of my classes, even if they get tough at times. :)

Too much homework! They don't enforce dress code, very distracting for the boys. Some teachers are special but most are mediocre, giving lots of paper and pencil work, busy work for homework, etc.

Boring and unsatisfactory for my child...although a few teachers stand out, many seem to lack dedication. I was disappointed by how the two years at Laguna played out.

I cannot say I felt my child to be safe at this school. This school is a horrible representation of San Luis Obispo, a great town should have a nicer school. Think of your alternatives before sending your child(ren) here. It is too bad there aren't many nearby.

My daughter has thrived at Laguna. The teachers all seem to be first-rate, the atmosphere is generally very supportive, and the curriculum is challenging but not overly demanding. She's able to have a great year and we have enough family time (she's not overwhelmed with homework). I wasn't looking forward to middle school (my own memories weren't so great), but this has been the best year of her education so far. She's not particularly interested in extracurricular activities so I can't comment on that.

laguna middle school has been a good experience for my child. It has a open atmosphere and good kids. However by the time my daughter reached eighth grade she became very bored with the activities and oppurtunities at the school.

I think this school is substandard. A warehouse for kids if you will. Teachers and Principal come in late and go early. No dedication.
