I have 3 children attending SPHS. To date I have had great communication with their teachers. I am an actively involved parent and I have enjoyed being part of the school's advisory committee.

As a SPHS Magnet School alumni, I have to say I found even the accelerated curriculum a joke. High school was all about being babysat.

Amazing faculty and staff that are always available and helpful. Three of my daughters attended and all three went on to college with the help of the high school curriculum. The music, dance and sports programs allow a well-rounded education.

My daughter also ditched and I wasn't notified for 30 days. I left messages with every teacher. I asked the counselor if I should come in for a meeting. She said, 'No, it's not necessary.' I also went and spoke with every teacher. This was two months ago. It is now 5 days before graduation. I went to ...  Read more

I guess this review could be for any public high school in the LAUSD. The schools are definitely overcrowded and there isn't a balanced amount of students per teacher ratio. In addition, the counselors have too many students to keep track of.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
