Don't believe the bottom posts of one * (submitted from the same parent). My suggestion is teach your child to defend themselves - we once knew how in this country, mine do. However, do get more specific, SLO is the High School most all parents search frantically for, however never lucky enough to find. ...  Read more

The principal doesn't care about students, he is more concerned with his career and looking good on paper and in public, as most of the staff in the School District. They are like career politicians that swing in and out of the District, consume the six figure salaries and leave.

The school has the AP classes for motivated students but otherwise it seems that mediocrity rules the day.

SLOHS doenst care about student needs they only care about how they look good and not the students. SLOHS needs to be a better school and care about the students and what they need not what the high school needs and how they look good not the students.

I go to SLOHS, and I have to admit that it is an excellent environment for kids to be in. There are a lot of electives, sports, extracurricular activities, and more for students to be involved in. However, the teachers (however well intentioned) simply are not adequate to be teaching certain classes), ...  Read more

The teachers are very good. The courses are challenging. My daughter transferred in from a private school and she is not bored. There is plenty of support for highly motivated kids that want to excel and get into a good college.

My daughter, who is not always the easiest to work with, got patient, one on one instruction from caring, competent teachers. They gave and gave way more than they had to.

* 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.
