Do not send your child here. Low test scores, bad teachers and coaches. The principal allows the coaches and teachers to bully the children. Spanish and Math teachers are below Average.

Costa Mesa High school is a terrible choice of a school. If you live in costa mesa i would advise to keep your kids from this high school. I attend CMHS and ever sense ive been at the school i hated it. The people at this school are cruel and do dumb things to get attention. I cant wait to get out.

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.
