Read what parents are saying about Sage Creek High School
Sage Creek is an academically tough school, and it seems to me that most parents and students appreciate the challenge. I know that as a parent I appreciate it, and my kids do too. To be competitive in this global job market, or kids need to be prepared - and SCHS is doing that for them. (PS - No, I am not a Tiger Mom. Just a parent who knows what kids need to compete)

Fantastic school that values integrity and respect. This school is very inclusive and a great school whether your child is an athlete or academically minded.

As a recent graduate of SCHS, I can say that I am well prepared for college. I think that any graduate in my graduating class of 2018, would say that they had a positive experience at Sage Creek. Personally, I am attending UC Davis to study Neurobiology, and 92% of my graduating class is attending college. We had a 100% graduation rate and outstanding scores in every arena. It is obvious that Great Schools does not summarize SCHS well due to its inadequate data. I highly recommend Sage Creek and am super happy to have gone there. Amazing students, top notch teachers, and a high school experience I will never forget.

This school is top performing and ranks higher in academics that Carlsbad High and LCC. The students score better on standardized tests and despite only having had 2 graduating classes- it is producing IVY league worthy students as well as lots of students attending the wonderful UC system.

This is a new school. It has had only two graduating classes so far, so there have been growing pains. It is ridiculous for these complaining parents and students to expect to walk in to a school that started in 2013 and expect to have everything handed to them like a school that has been around since 1957! Sage Creek encourages all to get involved to help grow and improve the school, which has been happening at a rapid pace. I have always had immediate responses to questions and quick resolutions to problems, but I am willing to step up and help, not just whine and complain. The college readiness rating of 2/10 is WAY off base! The second class (2018) has 94% pursuing secondary education, with 66% of those directly attending 4 year institutions after graduation. If you don't want to be a part of building the foundations and traditions for an amazing school, and can't hack the high academic expectations and pace of a trimester calendar, you're better off going somewhere else. My daughter went to Magnolia and Valley, and chose to travel to Sage Creek for the academics, rather than walking to the High School that is right around the corner. It is now her senior year and she has never regretted making this decision.
