Our eldest buy has just completed their first year there. He went from an 'A' grade middle school kid to a 'D' grade freshman in most subjects. This was all based on missing homeworks. His classwork is still A/B level. Not once did a tracher reach out to us to see how they could help. The school has no study planning techniques type lessons on offer, not even out of school.
My kids have been there for 3 years and I am happy with the experience. However, there should be better supervision of teachers as far as grading and homework policies. I am also very disappointed that when my son broke his collar bone playing lacrosse for the school 10 days ago, no one called to check on him or ask how he is
I have loved every second at Mission and there is nothing I would change about my experience. I have had wonderful teachers and guidance counselors who ade there for me and always ready to help. One thing I would stress though is that you do need to reach out and ask. If you just tell the office about any issues with a teacher or another student, or you tell the teacher that you don’t understand, you will get help. The school pride, especially with regards to sports, arts, and academics, is something that drives students to want to live up to the high expectations of the school. I also love that there is something for everyone; there is literally a lettuce club. I know that my experiences in water polo, swim, choir, drama, MUN, and AP/IB might be different from those of say a football player with a deep love of journalism and raising sheep, but I have no doubt that no matter who you are or what you’re into, you will love Mission, too.
Mission Viejo High is well known for its great sports programs, especially football. Unfortunately their academic achievement is far from where it should be. We had a less than stellar experience when it came to getting more help from teachers and good communication with Mission. Even the assistant principal admitted they could not force teachers to come before school or stay after because it wasn't in their "contract". Guidance was horrible too. We have since moved to the East coast where the public schools are much better and we get the help we need. If you are going to this school you better be prepared to be proactive in your students academics because they won't do a thing to help you.
