Both of my sons graduated from Serra High School. It is an amazing institution with involved parents and a caring faculty. Serra is really a community of people who share the value of a good education, while also teaching the importance of maintaining a high moral standard. Both sons played sports and learned discipline and teamwork from the experience.

This school has received mixed reviews. It is known more for its athletic programs than academic prowess. Many have stated that the public school system is better academically than Serra. Many former parents and students say its a waste of money. If you are interested in having your son attend this school I would definitely keep those thoughts in mind.

I know many students and their families who have been extremely pleased with the education that Serra High School provided . The school has been educating boys for years and years and has a very good reputation in the community. I also know at least one excellent teacher and one great administrator who worke there, because before going to work for Serra high school they worked for my children's elementary school here in this San Mateo neighborhood. I I experienced their outstanding work first hand as they worked with my children,
While some ratings and reviews are available to all , you should define to your self exactly what it is that you are looking for in a high school education, especially keeping the individual in mind. This will help answer if Serra High School is a good school or not.

The home you were looking at when you asked the question, 1105 9th Ave, San Mateo is in the attendance boundaries of Aragon High, which has an API of 849.

Junipero Serra High School is a private school and is not required to either report nor give the same tests as public schools. It is a male only school. Although the school has a college preparatory curriculum it has had a good number of athletes. Wikipedia lists a number of notable alumni
