My daughter attends the Performing Arts program and loves it. She LOVES her music class and is doing exceptionally well academically. The school is not perfect but what school is. As long as my daughter is happy and engaged and her grades are good I can't say anything bad.

Just like any other school it has problems but overall the school is great with the new principal you can already see the difference. The music teacher is good just not with middle school students!

I think the previous review was an extremist point of view. This is a decent school, with some really great teachers and some satisfactory teachers. The problem is that the principal who was there from 2011-13 was terrible with discipline & the dean position was vacated in 2012. There is a new start ...  Read more

We visited over a dozen middle schools all over the south bay and my daughter chose to comute over 30 miles each way to attend this school. While I cannot say it is perfect, she has benefited tremendously from the program they offer. Now in her second year, we moved to be closer since my son has now ...  Read more

We decided (parent and student) to enroll in the marina performing arts magnet program and so far we are satisfied with the school. Teachers are great, staff in the offices needs improvement, administration just ok . We do like how vocal and involved the parents are.
