    We love San Juan Hills! Our son went to Ladera Ranch Middle and now is at San Juan. It has been a great experience with wonderful teachers and great extracurricular opportunities. The Accelerated and AP classes are fabulous and there are many to choose from! The campus is gorgeous with a new weight room certified trainer theater with dressing rooms and all new clean facilities. Before we attended I heard there was a possible problem with some hispanic gangs attending. I have seen nothing dangerous nor has my son. He loves it!

    It's a beautiful school with wonderful and capable teachers. It is still a new school forging a new path and creating itself. The principal has an amazing track record and will surely take this school to incredible heights.

    The teachers are incredible. The facilities are top notch. The infrastructure has evolved fairly quickly. The location is absolutely ridiculous from almost any aspect.
