The school is a joke when it comes down to putting the students first! They dont take bullying serious and allow everybody who related to eachother coach. The principal is full of his self and only listens and is not proactive. There is no booster programs because the players they favor dont have to pay or participate which pushes everyone else at the way.

I have recently graduated from Segerstrom in June 2010. I'm so proud to say I was a Jaguar. Every teacher strives to give the best to each of their students and does everything in their realm of possibility to help all of their students succeed. I was pushed every year of my four years to succeed and I was challenged every day. This is possibly one of these best high schools to send your child to. You will not be disappointed.

Within five years, many students have been accepted and enrolled to competitive and prestigious universities as: USC, UCLA, Harvard, Brown, Stanford, Long Beach State, San Diego State, Berkeley, United States Military Academy at West Point, Princeton, Cal Poly Pomona and San Luis Obispo, Chapman, Cornell, UCSD, George Washington, University of Chicago, and much more. I learned a lot. Many teachers hold Masters Degrees and come from a very rigorous well trained background. Most of the instructors are bilingual (Spanish, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, French, Dutch, German, Italian, or Hebrew) and therefore may communicate on a one-on-one conference with the students parents. Segerstrom has attracted the brightest and most talented students from around the County. No wonder it is a very competitive school in the district, county, state, and at the nation level.

Segerstrom is a special part of the Santa Ana Unified public school system's 'fundamental' schools. These schools stress language arts, college prep, discipline, personal responsibilty. Parents and teachers and students sign a contract each year to agree to all follow the rules and do their best. Segerstrom has attracted excellent teachers and my daughter has thrived there.

As a soon to be graduating senior, I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to attend a school in which I am challenged in every subject area, however given the support needed to overcome those challenges. The staff is genuinely approachable and they not only are considered 'staff' by students but also people that one can come to and talk about random things that in no way have any correlation to academia or discipline. The teamwork within the students, parents, and staff is evident through the success that the school has been able to achieve these past years. Its nice to be the top school in our district and competitive amongst our county.

It's an ok school. I'm not impressed by the testing results (I've seen much higher). I've noticed that schools with higher test results are a bit more tolerable.

I have sent all of my children through the fundamental program. Segerstrom gets the students ready for college and does not tolerate bad behavior. I have no confidence in any of the other schools that are not in the fundamental program.

I could not be happier with my decision to send my son the Segerstrom. He was able to take all of his courses at an Honors level as a sophomore. They even offer 10th grade AP courses. The teachers are committed to my sons education and expect the same out of me. The praise the good and report the bad without delay. They had no varsity sports this year as there were only 9th and 10th grades this year. Next year my son will start varsity football and varsity wrestling. The coaches are amazing and put in an unbelievable amount of hours. Segerstrom High school requires committment by both student, parent and the staff and the results are obvious. I am thrilled and look forward to nest year when I will have 2 sons attending. Angel and very involved parent.

It is an Ok school, but you could make it feel more like a high school. For some reason making the leap of middle school to high school was not that great.
