I am currently a sophomore at Santa Margarita, from the experiences I have thus had so far, it's alright. The schools academics are rigorous, most of that depends on what classes you are taking though. The teachers and faculty are always supportive, encouraging students to doing their best and providing them with good educational support. In comparison, the schools Athletics are just as competitive as it's academics as Santa Margarita has won numerous CIF division titles. The one problem I am having with the school is the great amount of competitiveness, which can help to drive someone, but also can be annoying.
