This school is terrible and have a drug problem on campus. This school lacks diversity of students and the campus itself is super dirty. I strongly recommend you go to Silver Creek or Santa Teresa.

Overall the school has some great teachers and some bad ones that falls through cracks. Honestly, the only negative thing about this school is the fact that the school's administration put the needs of community over the needs of the students. One giant example is the gym, the administration of the school would rather allow the community to have priority over the use of the gym then the students. Other than that the school is decent, in the sense that it has great teachers and a very smart and kind student body.

I graduated in 2011. All I could say is that I still regret my years in this high school after 5 years.

I went to this school a month. Honestly I dislike this school. This school has a bad reputation of kids cutting school, foul language and poor education and teachers. well... lets talk about the teachers. I see kids in gangs and the teachers don`t care. The kids are not supposed to Join/attend gangs. and the teachers say foul language to the Kids that they are teaching.(I have some evidence on my phone.) well... In general this school is a bad reputation. Milpitas high school are caring and more supportive. It also has higher education than this school that I`m attending right now. (Yerba Buena). That is why we are moving out of San Jose because overall this school is a bad place.

Amazing school spirit, dedicated, passionate teachers and staff, friendly and kind students who do not discriminate in any way. Protective and safe environment with at least two police officers and many members of the staff walking around, chill enough to start a conversation but attentive enough to keep you safe. If you are planning to attend this school, ignore its old reputation and enter it with a fresh state of mind. Participate as much as you can and gorge yourself in school activities such as dances (always fun with or without a date), Spirit Week/F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C.S., sports, and clubs! It may seem somewhat intimidating, but exploring what's outside of your comfort zone will lead you an unforgettable high school experience. In that sense, you will get the most out of what the school has to offer. Most individuals who rate this school lower than it should be usually have an outside bias due to the past reputation (it has completely changed now, no gangs/fights at all), and are generally inactive in many of the activities offered. Simply incorporate yourself to the school, and your high school experience will be worthwhile. - J.S.
