La Habra High School seems to do well in academics, and most of the staff has been easy for my son and daughter to deal with...however, they seem to have a pattern of hiring bullies for coaching positions. They had a bully coach for many years for Basketball who was recently replaced. This former bully coach continued to go to the games this season to sit in the stands and basically taunt the returning players who he coached with his presence.
I am hearing from other parents that the Varsity Baseball has a new coach who has bullied to the point that some Senior players who have played all along at La Habra High School have now either quit the team or switched to Sonora.
I hear that cheer has been a very stressful and bullied filled year too. This program has floundered and with an apparent change in leaders has brought it down even further.
Now all of these teams may end up doing well in the long run, but at what cost to the children? These kids are broken down. I know that parents have tried going to the school and no one has done anything. So in conclusion, if your child is going to La Habra High School to just learn-they should be ok. If they want to pursue extra curricular activities, then really be aware of what can happen.
