High academic expectation. The Board of Trustees and administration are very open and approachable. Loads of parents show up to events. Happy kids. No complaints.

Talk to the students and faculty if you can. - View the list of college acceptances from previous years. - Inquire about ...  Read more

I have read the previous reviews - believe mine. When we started we were promised "that all classes are taught at GATE level". Not true.

I am a parent of 3 Laguna Blanca students one of whom recently graduated and is prospering in a top University.

We had our son at Laguna for all of junior high and it is not as bad as some of the reviews say, but it is also not as good as the positive reviews would lead you to believe.

We moved to Santa Barbara from central California for one reason: LAGUNA! Please don't allow a few comments change your opinion! It is true some teachers have left: they were pregnant and wanted to be home! I can assure you the quality you seek is there as I have a son upper school and many friends ...  Read more

I have been a parent in Laguna's high school for 7 years. It is the best college prep program in the region. The level of teaching and faculty/student engagement is like a small liberal arts college. Students are challenged academically in a very supportive environment. There is a wide range of extracurriculars ...  Read more
