The new vice principal vela came from north monterey county high school last year as principal and their scores dropped 35 points on the cst. When the school hires administrators who obviously are inept, it's time to do a clean sweep of district leadership, starting with the board and superintendent.

We moved here just after the 2012 school year had started. My son had a medical issue that required special assistance from teachers and staff. All went above and beyond to help him succeed.

Notice how all the good reviews are from 4 YEARS AGO??? This school has turned into a dump. Nothing good about it. Teachers aren't good, other staff isn't good, students aren't good. This is the worst school in California! If you love your kids and value their education, DON'T SEND THEM HERE.

SCHS has provided incredible amount of support to my daughter. Her academics and her outside athletics requirements are being met with professionalism and concern that we are lucky to have.

There are many electives to pick from, and opportunities for students to join after-school sports. On campus, once in a while ...  Read more

I think that Wilcox is a great school, maybe its because i go there but lso because of the nice and wonderful staff. I also think that the lunch they servr is terrific: salad, cheesesand which, fresh warm pizza, and nice hot mouth-watering spicey-chicken sandwhich. The whole school is curently being ...  Read more

Some of the teachers are good, some act like they don't particularly care. The honors and AP classes aren't too challenging. The physical education program is in shambles.

Santa Clara High School
Santa Clara 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.
