    Overall Experience: Overall, the school is full of energy and an enormous list of different activities. There is a different club for everybody. But what I think is the best feature of this school is the teachers. Even the courses that are challenging are filled with very interesting information and are very rewarding.

    Overall Experience: Overall, Calabasas High provided me with a solid education that geared me for college. The honors and AP courses offered at this school really gave a feel for how the college course work load was for me. Some faculty and staff neglected their positions and as a result the students suffered however, if you're lucky there are some wonderful teachers at this school that will not only take the time to break down the material for you but will also build a relationship with you.

    Overall Experience: I found a really great group of friends who really made me enjoy this experience. Though some of the students dont really know much about the world outside of the calabasas bubble. The school is very clean and always wants the best for its students.
