    Overall Experience: This school is ranked one of the best academically in the state of California. The soccer teams and waterpolo teams are top notch and do very well. However, if you are not involved in tons of things on campus like clubs and sports, you don't get connected at all.

    Teachers: For the most part, the honors and AP teachers are very passionate about their subjects and their students. However, the college prep teachers seem to do just about as much as they have to and don't usually care much about their students.
