22 Parent Reviews for Del Mar High School

My daughter is a Freshman at Del Mar. With a student enrollment about half of that of the other high schools in the area there is more support from teachers not overloaded by overflowing classrooms. She is also able to be more involved in the student community, with plenty of lunch time club options ...  Read more

My son is a freshman at Del Mar, and has been so excited to take advantage of the opportunities he's found at Del Mar! He's involved in community service through the Key Club (affiliated with Kiwanis), is active in Model UN, and a couple of other clubs. He has been totally accepted, even though he's ...  Read more

My daughter attended Del Mar her freshman year and had a great educational experience. The teachers really seemed to care about the individual students and helping them to succeed. The "Small earning communities" idea was very good at helping the teachers learn about the students, enabling kids to ...  Read more

As of this year, I am no longer a parent of a student at Del Mar. However, I was concerned last year that kids got out of school about 1:30 PM (school started at 8:00 AM). That seems to be to be really short for a normal student day. I am also concerned because most of us parents don't get home until ...  Read more

To be perfectly honest, I think Del Mar Has a lot of improvements that still need to be done. My son has attended there since his Freshman year and will be a senior this year, He will NOT be returning to Del Mar. His grades started to drop from 9th with a 3.16 GPA and leaving 11th it dropped to a 2.1 ...  Read more

The only thing really lacking at Del Mar is involvement, from both the parents and the students themselves. Del Mar could be a great school if more students got involved in what Del Mar does have to offer, instead of complaining about what it doesn't. Really, a student's experience at Del Mar is what ...  Read more

I have no complaints about my daughter's high school. Del Mar has had extraordinary growth in STAR scores and the teachers seem to be doing a fine job. Principal Jim Russel has brought Del Mar out of the Dark Ages.

Posted by a parent on 07/12/07

I think the most obvious reason that Del Mar High has seen an upswing in attitude and test scores is principal Jim Russell. His leadership and direction is clearly evident. We had huge doubts about sending our 2 children there. Now I'm glad we did. My daughter has been accepted to 5 state colleges and ...  Read more

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2012
Del Mar High School
Campbell Union 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.
