SVHS has some great teachers and programs. The graphic arts and ROP Video class are great! The unfortunate thing is that it is all about the IB program, which is only for Juniors and Seniors; SVHS is mostly a college prep school. I am so surprised that being near Silicon Valley with many families in ...  Read more

The community of Scotts Valley is a great environment to learn and grow as a person. It is tight-knit and positive and the teachers have a genuine care for their students.

The IB English course is AMAZING! It is a challenging course, especially Junior year, but I have no regrets of taking this course. I cannot begin to explain how much it has taught me about writing, speaking, and organizing my thoughts in general. I recommend this course to anyone looking to holistically ...  Read more

A challenging course will shape an ...  Read more

The IB program is excellent except for the Junior year English class. It used to be a great class but now it has so many problems that it makes the kids hate English and no one in the administration wants to do anything about it. Ask a lot of questions about this class before deciding to go full IB. ...  Read more

This high school has many excellent qualities. There are a variety of levels of classes from very low to very high. The IB program allows students to get college credit and prepare for college-level workloads. The Haunted House is a popular, well known (throughout several school districts), and almost ...  Read more

The school administration lacks diversity and communication. The school does not provide extra help for children who may need it. There are only two counselors for all the students and they seem overwhelmed. The school is facing budget cuts again and some teachers may not return next year.

I have had the opportunity to work with Mr Gunkel on many different occasions. I have found hiim to be a thoughtful. caring and effective leader. He has provided stability in what was an unsettled beginning for this school, and has dealt decisively with disciplinary issues. My experience has been that ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
Scotts Valley High School
Scotts Valley 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.
