27 Parent Reviews for San Marino High School

As a current student at San Marino High School, I only have two words for the families looking to register here: STAY AWAY. The teachers used to be great, but as each year goes on, the quality declines. All of our greatest teachers are either gone, or are about to retire. The only reason why we have ...  Read more

My school is epic, amazing, exciting, and fulfilling. It is truly a wonderful high school. The guys around here transcend stereotypes. You have the "jocks" taking calculus, the "nerds" in varsity sports, and the "average" guys who have more than a lot to show. The teachers here are phenomenal as ...  Read more

As a former student, I can attest to the wonderful academics SMHS has to offer. The environment is definitely one for over-achievers in academia, but nonetheless does not provide the support and critical-thinking needed for students to succeed in college and beyond. Much of the process is memorization, ...  Read more

As a former student associated with SMHS, I can definitely attest to the fact that their educational model excels at producing wonderful test scores. If you wish your child to become wonderful at memorizing answers to pass tests, then SMHS is for you. If you wish to become a true post-educational ...  Read more

Most of the teachers here know what they are doing. There are also some teachers that are really fun and nice. The dance and drama productions are amazing. The community really supports the school, that's how SM has been able to maintain it's status. There are also many different clubs available ...  Read more

This schools has it's strong points and it's weaker points, just like any other school. Some families love it, and some families decide to send their children to private schools. Do your research and make your own decision.

I graduated from San Marino High School a few years ago and I have found that it has not helped me (or other people I know who graduated from this school) to really be mature, self-confident, self-directed adults. This school was more like a factory of test-taking, essay writing, spoiled overachievers. ...  Read more

As a student I must say the academics at SMHS are outstanding not only because of the test scores that are produced, but because of the staff. The teachers at San Marino are constantly challenging the students to look at the curriculum beyond the standards and use the material from the class room and ...  Read more

Having heard the level of excellence at SMHS mostlybrought upon the parent initiated tutors for their kids, I was apprehensive about moving to SM. However, having my 3 kids (ages elem to h.s. ages) at Carver and SMHS, for the last 3 years, I realized I was listening to the rants of a few outspoken parents ...  Read more

Sometimes it's just not about school teachers that create a great school. I was a student there only in my senior year but the environment is the envy of other school. I had to get extra tutoring to keep up with some of the advanced classes. The entire community and parents really support the school, ...  Read more

CST* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2012
San Marino High School
San Marino Unified 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.
