Smaller class sizes and not as crowded as other HS in the area. WASC accredited, Western Band Accredition, LACF. Dual Corse enrollement college credit, AP courses, many electives: FFA (puppy program for the blind), technology and Engineering, graphic design, culinary courses. Milk Can winners. Coaching staff is leaps and bounds above some of the top schools in the area - not as cocky and unapproachable as some of the middle school and high schools. Leadership, communication, consistency, knows their players, motivational, and knowledgeable, are just some of the reasons they are attracting the top notch players from Chino hills in both football and basketball. A key to successful coaching is being aware of the individual differences in your athletes. There are some coaching tactics that work better on different personality types so it is important to tailor communication and motivation based on specific players’ personalities. To achieve this, a coach needs to pay attention to the player’s emotions, strengths and weaknesses. Knowing the athlete also involves having empathy for the athlete. Coaches need to care deeply about their athletes and a coach needs to be willing to be a mentor and counsellor, as well as a coach. As a parent, you can’t ask for more and reason why juniors and seniors are transferring from the highly coveted schools in the area (who are over crowded and bursting at the seems). Coaches and counselors encourage more than one interest in sports and or band. AAU Basketball, football and club soccer players are coming to play for this school because of the huge difference in coaching style. Highly recommended.
I was a student and a teacher at Don Lugo High School. One of the wonderful things about Lugo that I haven't seen as a teacher in other districts is the school pride that both staff and teachers have. The school is welcoming, fun, and caring. The teachers go above and beyond for their students. I have my best memories as a student and wish budget cuts didn't keep me from continuing my employment there.
Don Lugo is a safe learning environment and students and staff come together to make everyone feel welcomed.
Don Lugo is a great school. It's small and intimidate so that students get a ton of individualized attention from their teachers, staff, and administrators. Class sizes are rarely larger than 30 students per class and the best part is that if students want to join our celebrated Leadership or Renaissance programs, they can - there's no picking and choosing students - we include everyone. If students want to play any sport as long as they have the grades. Don Lugo doesn't have a "pay-to-play" mentality because everyone should have a chance. It's a relaxed campus where both the students and staff will not tolerate bullying - kids are safe and they feel safe. Fights are extremely rare, students are respectful, and the staff is hard working. The school has 14 competitive AP classes with two more in the works. The counselors walk seniors through the college application, FAFSA, and scholarship searches - and our students go to college, serve in the military, and are good citizens. Don Lugo also have a great LEAD program where budding engineers not only work with teachers who have worked in the industry, but also with Cal Poly engineering students. Our Vet Science program is new - and we have equestrian for PE! We have a Sports Media program, STEM, AVID, journalism, Television and Media, floriculture, and so many more programs for students. We have an Ag/Vet Science program (the only school in the district) and equestrian PE . We have Life After Lugo - check the newspapers because we've been in it. We have Guide Dogs of America on campus - students raise guide dogs, train them, and take them to their classes. We have great sports teams, fantastic academics, a community-minded Leadership program, a student-centered Renaissance program, and clubs where community service is par for the course. If you're looking for a school where students are accepted for who they are and celebrated for it, where students are pushed to face challenges and find success through hard work, if you're looking for a school whose philosophy is "One School, One Family," this is your school.
