School is much better that Vista High or Rancho. However, the geometry teacher is not a good one and doesn't seem to want to help the students. Also, he doesn't seem to teach but rather talks about his family leaving the students to figure out stuff on their own. At the same time, he gives a lot of F's

Teacher rating is beyond a 5 STAR....Teachers make this school!! Principal rating is 1 star...no one likes him, he is not involved and I do not see that he likes the school or any of its programs...it is a paycheck for him and nothing else. Counselors are also a 1 star...should all be fired for not

California Colleges seem to be the only colleges that these people are willing to talk about. They know nothing about ACT or ACT subject tests that some states require you to have to get into their colleges. THIS IS A GREAT SCHOOL. I AM HONEST WITH MY COMMENTS ESPECIALLY IF YOUR STUDENT WANTS TO EXCEL AND GET INTO COLLEGE. THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO. BUT BEWARE. YOU THE PARENT WILL NEED TO DO ALL THE RESEARCH ON WHAT CLASSES THEY (YOUR STUDENT) SHOULD BE TAKING AS THIS LIBERAL SCHOOL FEELS THE PARENTS SHOULD MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS AS WHEN IT COMES TO THE STUDENT PICKING THEIR CLASSES, AFTER EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE MINORS AND THEY DESERVE TO HAVE CHOICES TOO.NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTCOME OR HOW IT WILL MESS UP THEIR COLLEGE CHANCES.

It's a good school in comparison to say, Vista High or Rancho, but overall, the classes suck, the variety and diversity of the classes are atrocious, the councilors are less-than average, some of the teachers are really bad, most of the staff and students have little to no interaction, they waste your
... Read more time with stupid get-togethers in the theater, they seem to specifically focus on 2-year or 4-year colleges, and have the look of pity if you mention a community college or a trade school; God forbid you don't know how the college system words. They vaguely explain it to you, if not at all. You have to make an appointment to meet with some of the staff, they set up your schedule, sometimes, in a way that sets you up for failure (I've had it happen for 3 years so far) and say "There's nothing we can do". They never keep promises. They don't balance time well. The 4 x 4 is a great idea, and it's neat to put into play, but they don't think about how scheduling can make it VERY difficult. Four classes a term, all AP, and four classes the next term, all electives? Impossible, and yet, they don't care; don't bother changing it. This has been a terrible experience. I regret it choosing here. Read less
