13 Parent Reviews for Katella High School

It is my opinion that this school has even become more chaotic. Mr. Carpenter has the audacity to post fliers on campus to purchase his book "keeping it simple". In theory of his goal of the "Almighty dollar" rather than focus on conducting himself professionally. I have three children who were attending ...  Read more

I'm a senior at Katella and personally I dislike it. We have a poor educational program and even worse sports! I wanted to transfer to Sunny Hills for my final year this year :(

Its funny hearing what some parents hear and say about this school. No hard hats were worn by students to get to class, and there are always AP classes offered, you just have to be smart enough to get in them. My only concern is safety and campus security, which seems minimal. Academics aren't that bad, ...  Read more

I personally think that Katella High School is an good school there are good programs for kids to try out for and I enjoy the sports that most kids participate in.

Because of Katella my horizons are broad. You obtain a bond with the athletic, club and student-teacher communities aid me when I feel pressured with AP work load, and social problems at home. It is a sense of frienship, and innovation on obtains from the student goverment and subjects. Yet the current ...  Read more

This school has pretty good academics. They had a great drama and music program in the past, but since the lost their Mr. holland aka: Mr. Weiss the school's music program is now pretty lame. Their sports program is ok, but their is room for improvement. Parent involvement at this school is basically ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
