    "MBHS continues to get more local familes deciding this is a good place to send their kids. Yes, it is challenged by the budget cuts and the huge and unweilding SDUSD politics. The IB program sets it apart and provides for additional sources of funding and academics continue to strengthen. Don't expect an efficient and customer service oriented administration like a private school. Do expect to find most of the teachers excellent and committed and a very few rotten apples protected by the teachers union. It is a very safe real world environment. Also, your student will have a better chance of acceptance at a public college / university if they graduate from here versus a high acheiver private school. Yes, students come from all over San Diego to MBHS. But, they do it because they want to take advantage of either the athletic programs or academic programs it offers. The local PB students and their families are involved in the school and the local community. Check it out!"

    "Like so many schools, the staff at Mission Bay High School has gone through many challenges the past few years. However, having three teens who have and are still growing up at Mission Bay High, the staff, counseling office and teachers have worked with me to assure my students succeed, continue to respect the importance of learning and living within the boundaries set for them at school - that alone is amazing - it takes both school staff and the parent. Thank you for being my other half and helping me raise my 3 wonderful teenagers! Fondly, Mission Bay High School Mom"

    "MBHS has been an excellent school for our son. Academically, he is on track for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The curriculum is rigorous, challenging and dynamic. If you have not done your research on IB you owe it to your student to check it out on the MBHS website. It is THE ticket to college these days. MBHS is our neighborhood school and I have found our son's friends (many he has known since elementary) and also his new friends to be kind, well rounded and unpretentious. Overall, I can best describe MBHS by saying it is an empowering environment for students academically, socially and athletically. This empowering environment has made a remarkable contribution to the overall self esteem of our teenager which, as a parent, has been invaluable. Finally, I would be remiss to not mention the excellent teachers who have been accessible and responsive."

    "We have had all three of our children attend MBHS. Two have graduated and received academic scholarships to Brigham Young University. Mission Bay provided them with excellent preparation for college curriculum. There are many excellent teachers at the school who have inspired my children to be excited about learning. Just as important the school provided a friendly environment with a highly diverse student population. We are a neighborhood family, but our children have developed friendships with kids from all over the city. Special kudos to the sports programs at the school-all three children have been able to participate in the waterpolo and swim programs-all with supportive and enthusiastic coaches. Our new principal is full of energy and eager to improve programs that will make our school even better."

    "I have had 3 children attend MBHS. Two have graduated and 1 is going to graduate this year. This school has been wonderful for my children. There is a friendly atmosphere on campus that might not be expected considering the varied ethnic makeup of the campus. The teachers have all been excellent, concerned, accessible and helpful. Our oldest son excelled in math inspired by great teachers. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and received scholarships. I have particularly been impressed by the seminar (now IB), English and computer engineering programs. My children participated in tennis, water polo and swimming despite being novice in these sports. Some schools would expect such high performance levels that novice players would not be welcome on the teams. Mission Bay seems to be a place where you are encouraged to participate and have fun growing and learning."
