Dear Laguna Beach Unified Staff,
I want to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation to all of our staff who united together to help our students, families, and each other as we come to the end of this very unique and challenging school year.
Our mission is to maximize learning for every student in a supportive and caring environment to ensure that upon graduation, all students are ready for college, career, and global citizenship.
U.S. News & World Report has ranked nearly 18,000 public high schools based on their state assessments and how well they prepare students for college. Once again, a number of Orange County campuses can be found high on the list.

The FOA Foundation recently awarded Laguna Beach High School with grants totaling $25,000 toward ceramics, band, dance, and the visual and performing arts departments.
The FOA Foundation, which operates independently of the Festival of Arts, was established in 1989 to preserve and promote the fine arts and all other artistic endeavors regarding Laguna Beach. Laguna Beach High School teachers applied to receive $5,000 grants to enhance the programs and opportunities available for students to continue learning and developing their skills in visual and performing arts.
A class of 2020 Laguna Beach High School graduate has been invited as a finalist to compete for $5,000 at a live virtual event called the Dragon Challenge this Thursday, September 24.
