Sailors, Newport Harbor, US flag on their helmets, close 2nd Laguna Breakers. Both classic old school tradiitional and solid landmarks in their cities. CDM, great history, just needs some more aging, will come in 30-40 years.

One note, we are parents of a NHHS alum.......

A website you might get some use out of is http://www.greatschools.net . I've used this site for the last 8 years or so, and have always found the information my clients need.

Good Luck,

Good Morning Mr. Blue,
I think everyone has a different criteria. They may have a student with some special need, or that is into sports or Music. All three schools are very good. The ranking from "Great Schools" puts Newport and Laguna at an '8' of 10 and Corona del Mar at a '9'. Again your childs need come first!
Hope I helped you!

I tink all 3 schools are great! It does depend where you live. My kids attended Newport Harbor, one is still there and one attended CDM for a couple of years. I was happy with both. So much depends on what your child puts into it.

Hi Mr. Blue,

I think you chose 3 good schools.....so given that, I'm going to punt and say that they each have different school "personality," so I think it would be a personal choice. Of course the school is also determined by where you live.

From my standpoint? For me and my kids?

I love Laguna Beach....I grew up on their beaches, my kids spent their formative years at Anneliese's Schools (they are grown children now.....so Anneliese was still running them), and I have lived in many different areas of North and South of Main. So.....I will always choose Laguna, given the chance. I like the more relaxed and "liberal arts" attitude of Laguna Beach HS. As with all of Laguna....there is a nice diversity of thought.....I like that type of education. Both my kids, as well as myself, went to a liberal arts college. Expand thought!! :)

That being said? If someone finds a great home which fits their family and budget...I doubt any of those 3 schools would be a mistake.

What do YOU think about the schools?
