    "Visited this school with my teenagers while on a house hunting trip. The building is showing its age, but the staff and teachers seem welcoming and very professional. They have a very nice 50 meter pool. Giving this school two stars and deciding to look elsewhere because my children are interested in engineering. The PLTW program is entered only through a districtwide lottery. So if you attend this school and don't win their lottery your kids transcript will be missing those 4 engineering classes that the other kids from capo will have. They probably should have given preference to kids from capo, and used a lottery for the rest, as this will be a significant disadvantage to those students trying to get into an engineering college. Tesoro and Aliso Viejo both have newer facilities and better test scores anyway, so I will probably try our luck with the lotto after moving to one of those schools. JSerra Catholic has a very nice Engineering Magnet, if you can afford it."

    "I'm giving my school an above average rating because this school offers a variety of classes ranging from Marine Biology to AP Art History. This school offers alot more classes than other schools in the area, but my problem with this school is that I don't feel challenged. No one pushes you to your potential. There are so many smart kids at my school who don't know it because either they're not motivated or not being pushed hard enough. Other than that it's a pretty good school, all the teachers are nice and it's a very easy going school."

    "I went to Capo in the late 80's. I was very intelligent, but was one of the students that fell through the cracks and dropped out. The school officials knew I was struggling with issues at home, but there was very little outreach to me. School should have been a sanctuary, a refuge from my crazy life, but it wasn't. As for the academic material, many of my classes were about memorizing information for tests - which I promptly forgot if I even bothered at all - there was zero critical thinking. I was the invisible and troubled child in the room that was never engaged. I ended up taking the GED the year after I should have graduated. There were quite a few students like me that you will never hear about, but we existed then and probably still do now. I went on to carry a 3.9 GPA in college and a successful career, so my story has a happy ending - but I know there are ones who aren't as lucky."

    "Although my kids did not do particularly well in his class -- because it's tough and the students are required to think in depth about what they write -- they agree that Dr. Corbett was the best teacher they ever had. I'm glad he will not change his teaching style and will say the things that need to be said in order to help students develop into independent critical thinkers instead of automatons."
