Emerald Bay lies within the Laguna Beach School District.  Recognized by Newsweek and others publications for academic excellence, Laguna Beach schools stand out on a national, as well as state, level. In sunny Orange County, Laguna Beach High School frequently boasts class sizes of under 30; a near-perfect graduation rate; and teacher salaries topping 36% of the state average. LBUSD invests in its students, teachers and staff and that investment clearly pays off.

Laguna Beach Unified, the county’s second-smallest district in Orange County has fewer than 3,000 students, was the No. 3-ranked elementary and middle school district in Orange County, and the No. 1 high school district. Laguna Beach schools include two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.  The LBUSD has been largely immune to the state budget woes that have chipped away at much of public school funding. Laguna Beach schools rely primarily on local property taxes instead of state dollars and Laguna Beach’s property taxes have been very strong over the past decade.

Laguna Beach schools are the centerpiece of a community that is heavily invested in its success.
