It is not a good school. My son is getting great grades but isn't learning anything at all. There are so many things my son should have learned by now and hasn't because most of the teachers are lazy. Only a couple of the teachers communicated with me about my son's problems.

I encouraged parents to visit the school more often to see first hand the disparities among classroom resources and the lack of leadership in this school.

Parents need to be more involved in the education of their children. It's not up to the teachers to educate w/out parent support. SYMS can be a great school if teachers would get more parent support. Great samples are Mr Vega, Mr Rubio, Mr Bojorquez..

I think people underestimate this school. It is not the teachers but the lack of parent support that hinders these students. Great teachers Mr. Juan Pedraja are a blessing.

San Ysdiro Middle School (SYMS) is a mixed bag. While it now has some stability, it has gone through several principals. Its accelerated (honors) program and ELD program are highlights.

I just want people to know that the office staff at SYMS is very professional. One person in particular is Ms. Debbie (front office receptionist). She is very helpful when ever I call or go in person to the office.

* 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.
