After we were both educated in private & private parochial schools back East, my wife & I were a bit concerned that our child would be attending public schools here in California, especially with the severe recent education budget cuts. But, like so much in life, we learned you get out of it what you ...  Read more

I have sent all three of my kids to GHS. They have all had some exceptional and stellar teachers, and a few not so stellar ones. That is the nature of any school. They have all loved going there and made good friends, been involved in sports, clubs, and leadership groups. I made the effort to get to ...  Read more

Very disappointed in this school. My daughter has had a difficult time since we started there. Too much diversity and innapropriate activity. I feel the staff turns a blind eye to alot of the mischief that goes on in the classrooms.

I have to agree with the parent that posted on Tue. Sept. 29th. But, I always think parents have to be pro active when it comes to education. Although this is only the second year my student has attended a public school. My student is in Honors & AP Classes which does seem to make a difference as ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
Grossmont High School
Grossmont 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.
