Just graduated. Hardly any learning happens, teachers for the most part cannot control their classrooms. Academic counselors do not provide any help and are only present during your senior year. No school spirit, hardly any clubs or opportunities for extracurriculars. Reason why I did not give it 1 star was because there are a FEW teachers who actually show that they care for their students and want to see you succeed.

College Admissions was a joke, was peer pressured to apply for colleges that didn't mean my GPA. Other than that I fixed myself up to go to LA Trey tech, not taking advice from a counselor that makes it top priority to shove students in colleges as quick as possible or placing favored students in the ones they want.

Very little learning happens. Possibly cheating on state test encouraged by principal (obese woman in main office). Scores are bad with or without cheating. Find your kid another school.
