The Last of the Founding Stallions The San Juan Hills Class of 2013 leaves behind a stronger school community


he foundation has been set at San Juan Hills High School, thanks in large part to the class of 2013. When these students entered high school in 2010, their campus was still only three years old. The familiar trappings of the typical high school experience were virtually non-existent. There were no traditions or long-standing rivalries. There wasn’t even a senior class. In four short years, however, these students—primarily drawn from San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, Ladera Ranch and San Clemente—helped build their school’s reputation as top performers in the classroom and in the athletic arena. And through service activities, they developed a strong connection with their community as well. But during their commencement ceremony on Tuesday, June 11, at the Bren Events Center, speaker after speaker emphasized what is perhaps the class of 2013’s most important legacy: establishing a sense of school community and Stallion pride. “We really grew into a real high school this year,” said Briana Baptiste, this year’s Scholar of Scholars. “The other classes might have broken in the school, but I feel like we were the first class to make it a really big high school community.” This year’s list of milestones and accomplishments are a testament to the groundwork and blueprint for success the class of 2013 has laid for future Stallions. In May, Newsweek/The Daily Beast placed San Juan Hills as the 500th best school in their annual list of the top 2,000

high schools in the country—behind only Tesoro High School (337th) in the Capistrano Unified School District. In the fall, the football team broke in the school’s new home stadium, dubbed “The Badlands,” with a victory and finished the season with a school record-tying seven wins. And in the spring, the Stallions boys volleyball team earned a share of its first Sea View League title. Evan Parker Gentry, who was team captain of the boys volleyball team and one of four valedictorians to speak at graduation, said attending San Juan Hills provided a unique opportunity to help establish the school’s identity from the get-go and to turn what was once a “lonely campus” into a vibrant, supportive community. “Because we were sort of the founding fathers of this school, we were able to decide how we wanted to represent San Juan Hills High School and prove we were the best out there,” Gentry said. With 388 seniors earning their diplomas, the class of 2013 is the smallest of San Juan Hills’ three graduating classes— last year, the school graduated 439 students. Gentry said being a part of a small class was favorable because it allowed students to become closer with one another. “I’ve been able to make connections with people all around and really network with them,” Gentry said. When asked to describe the class of 2013, Principal Tom Ressler said he was most proud of the solidarity shown by the senior class. As an administrator, Ressler said he wasn’t pleased when over 300 of his seniors decided to partake in the senior “ditch day” tradition. However, he admitted that he was slightly impressed by their loyalty to one another, even when they were punished the day after. “While it was a negative, it was showing how together they were,” Ressler said. “The fascinating thing is, when they heard we were going to penalize them, rather than complaining, they said, ‘OK, we did it. We accept it. But we are happy we came together to do something.’” Ressler also highlighted the class of 2013’s compassion for underclassmen. This year’s seniors, he said, made it a point

CLASS OF 2013 BY THE NUMBERS 388 Graduates 49 Valedictorians (students with a GPA of 4.0 or higher) 57 Academic Distinction Awards (students with cumulative academic GPA of 3.5 to 3.99)

31 percent (approximately) of the graduating class earned Valedictorian or Academic Distinction status 99 Advanced Placement Merit (students who completed a total of five or more Advanced Placement courses with at least two taken during their senior year)

2 National Merit Scholarship Program Commended Students 64 National Honor Society members 55 California Scholarship Federation Awards to involve juniors, sophomores and freshmen in school-wide activities and efforts. “Probably more so than any class I’ve seen in many years, they included other kids,” Ressler said. “They developed a sense of leadership in the kids below them. It was just a really neat class.” The class of 2013’s contributions won’t end with graduation, however. During the commencement ceremony, Ryan St. Onge, senior class president and the 2013 Stallion of the Year, revealed his class’ parting gift: an original bronze statue depicting a bucking Stallion. “We’ve already got a beautiful campus, but now we’re going to have a place that can become a focal point,” Ressler said. “They’ve given that seed for us. Now, it’s up to the rest of us to make it a rallying point.” —Brian Park

Onward, Stallions Scholar of Scholars’ speech urges graduates to realize their potential By Briana Baptiste, San Juan Hills 2013 Scholar of Scholars, GPA 4.58


elcome friends, family, faculty, administration. Most importantly, congratulations to the class of 2013! When we first came to San Juan Hills, many considered our class disadvantaged as the third graduating class of a new school. And to an extent, they were right. We were not faced with the same established luxuries and comforts as those entering more seasoned schools. Coming from a middle school in San Clemente, I was hesitant to enroll in San Juan Hills—a new and unknown school. After all, I was a Spanish dual immersion student and I had just spent years studying the language that I loved and enjoyed. I needed to have access to specific opportunities in order to complete my bilingual studies. Me ofrecía San Juan Hills estas oportunidades? Would San Juan Hills High School offer me those opportunities? The answer to that was a resounding “Sí.” I found that San Juan Hills High School was filled with endless opportunities to create and participate in a variety of classes and programs. When I first became a Stallion my freshman year, we

were without a pool, a stadium or a senior class, yet we forged our way through tutorials, AP tests and A-through-G requirements. We created our own memories, friends and legacies. Just recently we shattered previous athletic records, reaching CIF in golf and track, established Link Crew and were the first to experience the school’s beautiful new Badlands stadium. The earlier classes at San Juan Hills gave the class of 2013 a foundation to build upon, and from this foundation, we built a stronger community. From San Juan Hills High School, each of us will take away not only a diploma, but also a sense of pride at the accomplishments of the class of 2013. Knowing our potential to influence change, our class embraced the city of San Juan Capistrano, creating a deeplyrooted connection between a school and its community. As a member of the Interact community service club on campus, my classmates and I had the opportunity to serve the beautiful city of San Juan Capistrano at food drives, local service events and holiday celebrations. I witnessed our class work outside of the school setting and saw the

unlimited effects of our actions. From the classroom to the surrounding community, the class of 2013’s ability to leave behind a positive, lasting impact is evident. Now, as we push forward, we must be active in our own destinies and seek self-fulfillment, whether our plans for next fall are work, military service or college. The poet Fernando Pessoa once wrote: “El éxito consiste en tener éxito, no en tener posibilidades de éxito. Cualquier gran pedazo de tierra es el sitio potencial de un palacio, pero no hay palacio hasta que se ha construido.” “Success consists in being successful, not in having potential for success. Any wide piece of ground is the potential site of a palace, but there’s no palace till it’s built.” We cannot afford to waste what we learned at San Juan Hills High School. Each one of us graduating today has the ability to build their own palace out of what these past years taught us. Our potential for success is huge—now all we have do is realize it. Thank you and best of luck in building your palace. Gracias y buena suerte en construir su palacio.
