There is no doubt that Placer High School was the best choice we could have made for our daughter. She found so much inspiration at that school.

My daughter has attended this high school since the ninth grade. She loves how the classes are mixed up so that there could be ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders in the same class. She loves the math teachers there because they inspire her to do better.

I like this school, it offers a good range of courses, but lacks in the sciences a bit. I thought that there was too much emphasis on athletics, and less on other activities and academics. The band has gotten rather good in recent years, and it also has a good jazz band.

Academic programs are good but limited in diversity of advanced courses. Athletic programs are good but school population is declining and will affect quality of programs. The parent involvement is limited to the same small group of people that volunteer to keep everything going.

Has decent academic programs some are lacking in the areas of math and english. Has plenty of sports, music, and art. Parent involvement is quite low. The principal is rarely around. Not much authority.

Placer Union High School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
