Principal's Message

Dear Stallion Families,


It is an honor to be the principal of San Juan Hills High School.  Our high school is the newest comprehensive high school in Capistrano Unified School District, celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2016. San Juan Hills is well known for it's academic, athletic and artistic programs.  Our students and community embrace our mission, "Ride for the Brand."


It is essential that our community is aware of the San Juan Hills High School mission as it drives the work we do as a school.  Our goal is to support our students to:


Balance academics, activities, and social/emotional needs

Respect and include those from all backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives

Apply higher-level thinking skills to a broad range of college and career contexts

Nuture relationships with their communities and positively contribute to society as a whole

Dedicate themselves to setting and reaching meaningful goals


With a focus on these specific areas, we can provide a successful and rewarding educational experience for ALL of our students.


It is a pleasure to work with our school community to continue to build our school culture of inspiring excellence. Together, we will make this the best year yet.


Go Stallions!


Jennifer Smalley
