On that first day in September, as her mother's beat-up station wagon wound its way out of her working-class Santa Ana neighborhood and up to the ocean bluffs and the bright clean air of Newport Beach, 14-year-old Beatriz Arreola felt the fear in the pit of her stomach.

Spin it a little and you could say that the boys on the Saddleback Valley Christian football team have enjoyed a storybook season. Storybook in that they're like football's version of the make-believe Bad News Bears or Mighty Ducks. There's just one flaw: With an 0-6 record, there is no hope of a comeback leading to an unlikely championship when the Warriors play their final game today against Riverside's Bethel Christian.

It began with the behavioral problems of several boys at St. John's Lutheran School--smart-alecky talk during classes, disrespect toward teachers and disregard of school rules. But in the year since two of the boys were expelled, these disciplinary problems have turned to legal ones amid allegations that teachers hit and shoved them and the pastor belittled and humiliated them.

The private Kline School won permission from the Planning Commission this week to add two classrooms, a move that will allow the school to expand its enrollment from 45 to 75 children. Susan Kline, a former teacher and owner of the Kline School, said that she turned away about 30 students last year. Kline added that although the additional classrooms will allow her to immediately increase enrollment to 75, the growth may be gradual.

In South County, new students are enrolling in public schools faster than the campuses are built. So one private school here is taking steps to meet that demand. In just five years, St. Anne School has seen its student population grow from 124 to 500. The school, once housed in trailer classrooms on Rancho Niguel Road, moved two years ago to larger portable buildings on Bear Brand Road.

Eastside Christian Church's school will be able to enroll at its main campus 80 high school students who were displaced after a lease fell through for campus space in Anaheim. The City Council voted last week to allow the displaced students to attend class locally while a new site for the high school is sought. The church school had rented a site in Anaheim for its high school, but that agreement expired this year.

The soul of Mater Dei High School lives behind the gym, in a slightly tilted trailer he shares with a scrappy stray cat. Josef D'Heygers is 84 now and stooped, but he gets around campus much like he has for the last 45 years, taking care of this and fiddling with that--fussing over the Santa Ana private school he has made his home. D'Heygers watches over what, with 2,100 students, is the largest coed Catholic high school in the West.

The school is only three years old, but people here have all felt, at one time or another, as though they owned a part of it. They have seen the roaches and mopped the floors and sat through class as rain leaked from the ceiling into uncountable pails.

The boys at St. Catherine's Military School are under the tutelage of an interesting mix of leaders. Lay teachers conduct most of the regular classes, which run from kindergarten through eighth grade. Nuns run the dormitory, act as administrators and oversee religious life. Ex-military men teach the boys discipline, a spit-and-polish lifestyle to go with their Army-style uniforms and ranks.
