    "We moved to San Clemente from NJ (August 2014) and I had many concerns about sending our son to SCHS his freshman year. The large number of students and campus in need of a face lift was quite intimidating. Not to mention we were new to the area and my son can be quite shy. We arrived the week of registration and though the office staff were quite stressed and not friendly they were efficient. We pushed our son to find a few clubs he would enjoy. He audtioned for the choir, signed up for drama, and joined a card club. The staff and students involved in drama and vocal arts were amazing and welcoming. He truly found a home away from home with these groups at SCHS. The school is large but there truly is something for everyone. We have enjoyed watching our son grow socially and emotionally this year. There are some great kids who attend this school and so far the staff have been wonderful."

    "Not a great HS at all. Needs upgrading and complete overhaul. Overcrowded with many issues."

    "Overall a terrible school. No conditions for 3000 students;maybe 1500 max! Not even enough bathrooms. All my time at this school was wasted in absurdly long bathroom lines to wait for disgusting and leaking toilets barely fit for use. Most cafeteria food sucks and lack of resources for all these people. The majority of my teachers were nonchalant and uninspiring, assigning copious amounts of busy work. Also, most people at this school are very cliquey, closed-off and rude. Couldn't be happier to get out of this hell hole."

    "The last review should have 5 stars across the board. Please fix. Hopefully someone at Great Schools can fix it. If read you will notice the review does not match the star rating."

    "I graduated from San Clemente High School ("SCHS") in 2007 and then attended UCLA. I would argue that there are two "tracks," and implicitly two different schools, within SCHS: honors/AP/IB, and everything else. I did the former of the two, so my experience and comments are limited therein. I had an excellent experience at SCHS, particularly in the International Baccalaureate program where deeper thinking, not simply rote learning, was encouraged. Students in the honors/AP/IB track generally know the same kids for four years, and that fosters both a sense of community and one of hard competition (net positive). Nearly every teacher has at least a masters degree in their subject (again in the honors/AP/IB route) and most were outstanding instructors, not just knowledge stores. Students rarely lack extracurricular activity options (orchestra, band, multitudes of sports, dance, theater, etc.) and many of those are nationally and regionally ranked and well-respected. I strongly recommend taking any classes from Kathleen Sigafoos, Patrick Harris, Lisa Kerr, Jeff Kolasa, Jennifer Morris, Rob O'Rear, Allison Schick, Rob Urquidi, Pat Wilsey, and Duncan Wilson."
