There are a few great teachers, there are a few lazy ones as well who care more about being cool and popular with the students than they do about teaching them This is especially true with some (but certainly not all) of the English and science teachers. But the main problem is that the administration ...  Read more

The principal at TL is fantastic. He has a contagious spirit, is thoughtful, fair and keeps everyone on their toes. Most of the teachers are very good. The Home and School Club (their PTA) is extremely active and there seems to be more and more parent participation. Thumbs up.

I have been attending TL for two years now and have really loved it there. They have a great Drama/ Music program, and also a great English program. Sadly, TL lacks in the math and science category. But there is a great tutoring program afterschool where adult volunteers come in to help struggling students. ...  Read more

San Rafael City High 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.
