    "ANHS is a highly competitive school that serves to those living in the Laguna Niguel/Aliso Viejo area. Aliso offers several rigorous classes, as well as clubs and other means of extra curricular activities (I will note that the marching band is spectacular and highly recommended to anyone caring to join). If you are not the strongest student, I recommend strongly that you hire a tutor, seeing as the general gist of the school is "sink or swim". Moreover, the social life of Aliso is spectacular. The stereotype for Orange County is a white, upper middle class student body (unfortunately this is most students). To much surprise, incoming students are welcomed by their friendly and helpful peers. Despite the cheery and generally happy disposition the school displays, the campus needs much work. The bathrooms are downright disgusting, and there are not enough lockers for the entirety of the school. The school is also placed at the bottom of a hill and is connected to the main road by a two lane street. It is crucial that you leave early to be at school on time. Nonetheless, Aliso is a wonderful school and I would highly recommend it to any one interested."

    "ANHS is extremely competitive school its known for its academic excellence. this is the school for you. My daughter has done very well here. The teacher takes an interest in your child and all the staff is friendly and helpful. The Band and Color guard program is awesome. The school is very clean and safe. If you want your child to be in a safe environment and have great teachers. Plus has academic excellences this is the school for you. This school is not for slacker or for students who complain.

    "PLENTY of AP, Honor, and Acc. classes and a unique choice of a 7-class schedule, which is a plus for big achievers. Band program is great, orchestra gets the complete short end of the stick with funding (orchestra room is a TRAILER!!), but there are many EXCEEDINGLY talented musicians in the top orchestras, although bottom level ones stink. Some teachers are EXCELLENT and AP/Honors/Acc. classes are more than challenging for even the brightest. Students, for the most part, are extremely clique-y, cold, and generally un-including. HUGE division between MEGA achievers and drop-outs. Huge division with 'popular", "normal", "nerdy", and "asian" cliques. Extremely hard to make MEANINGFUL friendships. LOTS of exclusion, and the "popular" people are extremely rude and mean and obnoxious in every way imaginable, almost unbearably so. SOME teachers are horrendously mean and grade very unfairly, leaving some students with almost no control over their own grade. (this is coming from a top-honors student) The 2 stars are for the good teachers and amazing academics. Also, lots of trailers, ugly old campus and all materials used are underabundant, old, and falling apart. BEWARE."

    "I moved to the area because of the school's reputation. I should have done more research. Stay very, very far away unless you can afford private school. It might have once been a good school but not now. I promised my children we would not move again until they graduated from high school, but I should have broken that promise for their own good. They have each made life-long, good friends, but they had to work very hard in college to make up for everything they did not learn. And, yes, the bullying is a problem. My son recently told me about an incident where someone bloodied his nose simply because he didn't like him. Nothing was done. Glad we are out of there now. Stay away."

    "Both my sons went through Aliso Niguel High School. While some teachers were good, many were not. If your kid is already academically motivated, she or he mighut lazyt do very, very well. If not, though, they wil probably just be processed through, like mine. One was a special ed student, and the school failed him miserably. The school failed to stop bullying, and it was sometimes extreme. My other son was gifted but lazy, and no teacher tried to connect with him and help him. He, too,was bullied (and sometiems because of his brother), and no one even tried to help him. Not my idea of excellence. On standardized testing, parents of special ed kids are encouraged to refuse to have their kids tested to avoid the impact on school scores."
