I was in the graduating class of the 80's. And I can truly say I loved attending Saddleback in my high school years. I have a son who attends Saddleback now who played football 9th -12th grade. And I was so disgusted in not seeing any parent involvement whatsoever in helping out with fundraisers or just giving a helping hand. These boys work their butts off and yet the parents are no where to be seen. The coaches try all they can but you still need parent involvement in supporting your kids if you want to make a difference. Hopefully 2014 will be a new start for the boys football team this year! Go Saddleback, never give up and always give it all you got.

I was lucky enough to have an aunt that cared enough about me to put me in Saddle back High School. My Grades improved, I had friends, got involved with school activities and meet some wonderful friends. Thanks for a wonderful school year. Debbie Swails

I was in the second graduating class at Saddleback High School in 1970. At that time this school was the best in Santa Ana building wise the teachers and administration were very good. If they have deteriorated it is because of both the city and state government not willing to invest in our children and where first budget cuts come to education. We didn't have a lot of money then either and a lot of the little things were donated by the parents at that time. It still has potential to be a great School

When posting my review regarding the automated phone messages, I forgot to thank the young lady that did her best to help me with this matter. She did her best to resolve the situation and I thank her! It's not her fault that the people running the high-tech end of the school system have no common sense.

When I went here in the late 90s, this place was a joke. I was placed in h.s. planning and driver's ed in 12th grade when I already had my license. I didn't bring anything to class and no teacher cared. Rolling Stones' t-shirts were considered "gang-affiliated" (Uh, I was a far cry from that) and I would run into teachers at Burger King when I just left the school because NO ONE CARED. I met people who were getting diplomas that couldn't speak English, let alone read it. (I figured English classes were a requirement for graduation, right?) I helped one poor girl get out of an English class that couldn't WRITE A SENTENCE, let alone an essay (let's just say free tutoring?? I was extremely bored). Some teachers were just sad to see. Waste of my time, this place was. I just tested out of school because THANK GOD I am an autodidact an didn't absorb SHS's nonsense. I really hope things are better now. :/ If this post is offending anyone, please delete it. I was just trying to give a head's up. I don't care that much.

Well Im still a senior at Saddleback High School and have noticed that the school is deteriorating. I will put most of the blame on administration and students. I love the teachers I do find them motivated and are fully commited to trying to get the students to go to the best universities possible. Lastly I am proud to say Im a roadrunner!!

Unmotivated students, unmotivated teachers, unmotivated staff members. It just felt like a gloomy place where this aurora of lack of careness for education. Transferring out of Saddleback and to Segerstrom high was the best thing that happened to me.
