  • I love Niguel Hills Middle School. It is probably one of the best public schools in the country. I am in the AAA/Gate (most advanced classes) program, and I know I get a way better education than those offered at any private schools I know. It's not the best looking thing you could ever see, and 1 out of 15 kids are bad, but in general its a really good school. I am actually really sad my 7th grade year is going to end soon.

    I would tell anyone to go to this school, I promise :)
