Laying eyes on the tranquil garden that stretches between two corridors at Bolsa Grande High, the first question that comes to mind might be: How can I make my yard look like this?
Where once was only trampled grass, some 1,400 graceful yet hardy plants now flaunt their understated beauty. A dry, pebble-bottomed creek harbors its own array of grasses and flora.

Nikole has shown to be consistent in her words and in her actions when dealing with athletes and other coaches. She has demonstrated, time and time again, the honesty and sincerity with which she handles herself as both a teacher and a coach, and her level of loyalty to her school, her sport, and her players are off the charts.” Additionally, Coach Terflinger had high praise for senior varsity player Guerrero: “Selena will leave great big shoes to fill on my field as well as on the campus of Bolsa Grande. She not only is a great softball player and leader, but she exudes the characteristics of a leader, acts with integrity, is selfless, and is hardworking.

Learning at the Laguna Beach Tide Pools!

Many thanks to Mr. Johnson’s wonderful AP Environmental Science students, who recently spent a winter beach day learning and working to protect the tide pools at a local State Marine Conservation Area. On December 20th, our hardworking and dedicated Matadors headed south for an educational field trip to Laguna Beach’s famed Heisler Park and tide pools. Here, students participated in the Coastkeeper’s educational program and dedicated a day to learn about Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and the ecology of our coastline. Students also provide marine protection and conservationism during a beach and tide pool clean-up. These pools, which are vital and delicate ecosystems, benefit greatly from the conservation work, and as always, our kids are ready and willing to jump in and do their part to keep our waterways beautiful
