Outstanding school! Caring teachers, after school tutoring and club activities. A full offering of classes from advanced placement to remedial for those who need the help. VERY rarely are there fights, so disregard the previous review by the student. Any one interested can check the statistics!

Apple was an ok school its a big school there are fights regularly some teachers cared but to me most didnt it seemed like they hated their jobs and didnt want to take time out to really teach us well hopefully this helps parents out there thinking about apple valley high school as a possible school for their child.

Had one graduate last year and I have a current freshman at A.V.H.S., staff has been dedicated and always willing to help with any academic issues. All the teachers have communicated their expectations and coursework when I emailed them at the beginning of the school year and told me I could call or email them at anytime. I even had one teacher offer to have my student come to class early for a particular subject they struggled in early in the year to get them up to par. Older student was accepted into several Universities that they applied for and is currently in College. Very happy with A.V.H.S.! Note: I do think that parents need to be involved and stay on their student, pay attention to what's going on with their students grades and lives. Check frequently online as it is updated weekly, you can see grades, attendence and tardies all online! No excuse Mom and Dad. A Father who cares!

Apple Valley High School has had a trouble past regarding a string of poor administrators. Mrs. Jonas was just getting things on the right track when she retired. Let's hope the new principal has the courage to follow her lead and continue to turn things around. I have been very impressed with Mrs. Walton who is a counselor there. She is the most professional and caring person I have ever met and she loves what she does. She always takes time for students and never makes them feel unimportant. It's too bad Apple Valley Unifed has not had the good sense to take her on as an administrator because she has what it takes to be a great leader.

This school is truly dedicated towards its students. The teachers, staff, and students are very welcoming and helpful. The school has helped me accomplish so much in my three years as a student. I have reached goals that I never thought I could achieve and met so many people that I know our friendships will carry thruough a life time. The teachers are well deserving of their titles and they teach subjects in an interesting and communicable way, to the point where the average person can enjoy every minute of teaching. This school has many extracurricular activities from debate club to ASB there is something for every type of person here. Thank you AVHS for all of your positive encouragement!

I think that Apple Valley High School is one of the best schools here in the high desert. Two of my kids went here. and My youngest girl is a junior here and she is doing fantastic. I really love this school alot.

A school with both positives and negatives. Extra-curricular activites including sports are fairly strong and abundant. Most teachers are fun to get along with and to learn from. Some teachers do lack necessary knowledge to teach certain students specific subjects. Security staffs try vigorously to keep the campus safe but the results are poor. Many AP classes to choose from thus increasing the academic status of AV. However, more extra-curricular academic teams / programs are needed. Overall, it's an OK school. It's improving rapidly and at this rate, the school will break 700 in API. Sports seem to get better also.

Honors program has improved, but lacks developing skills for students who want to attend rigorous university programs. Mostly as a result of low level assignments by teachers who use outdated projects that have little relevance to preparing for the AP exams. Overall my student enjoys the social aspect of the school - who doesn't in high school anyway? New principal is great. One of the best administrators I've met. She is someone who knows what needs to be done to address the needs of all students. Hopefully the staff will listen and follow her guidance instead of running her out of town. Security at the school is also very attentive and professional. Parental involvement is to say the least, miserable. Even though I've offered to assist coaches and organization leaders, some staff don't know how or are afraid to form partnerships with the parents.

Some teachers need to work more on what works for the kids but other that that it`s a really good school to go to.

The environment of the school to say the least is scary. It takes away from the wonderful teachers whom do their best to teach in ugly circumstances.

Teachers are excellent, as long as kids are there to learn. Extracurricular activities are abundant. If a parent has a concern or dislike, they are not ignored.

New principal. Hopefully things will be better. Police patrol after school to keep things under control. We are moving after 4 years here! Its the 'Rialto and Long Beach' people moving here than ran this place down.

Five of my children attended this school and they were afforded quality education second to none. Although gated, students are cared for. I have particularly come to respect the work of Mr. McClain in preparing my child for college and making available all pertinent information for a smooth transition. Keep up the great work you are doing at Apple valley High School. Although Apple Valley High School is the oldest school in the district, my experience as a parent is that it also houses a warmth about it and offers an inclusive environment for all students.

A lousy, gated school. Stuck in the middle of the desert, this school has very low standards with respect to education, preferring to push its vocational training above college preparation. Perhaps the abundance of low-social class in the area has an effect, but there is a severe lack of culture or progressive ideas at this school, which seems more like a prison with its heavily-gated campus.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
