My oldest received a diploma through a special needs homebound program at Azusa USD. The teacher who worked with my child was from Azusa High. He was exceptional. He understood my child's needs - not just academic but social and emotional. He also was not afraid to hold my child accountable and be challenging. My child graduated with a high GPA and is a college student. I do not believe this would have happened had my child not received so much support from this teacher. Some teachers in other schools didn't want to put in extra effort to work with someone who had special needs. I don't think they believed it mattered or that my child wouldn't notice - well, my child did and it had a heavy impact. This teacher was able to repair a lot of damage in that regard. To me, the teacher's dedication, loyalty, and innovation reflect the values Azusa High no doubt instills in its faculty. I'm proud of my child, but I am also immensely proud of and grateful for my child's teacher, who stepped up and became a role model and superhero when so many others failed at the same post.

I am a student at Azusa High School and Azusa is the best out of the 2 high schools I've attended. The students are well behaved and are super polite and friendly, the teachers and administrators are amazing they'll do anything they need to do to help you get to where your goal is. Azusa High is well known for its outstanding and high award winning Performing Arts groups.

I am a current student at Azusa High School and I am very bothered that all people think when they hear about us is our financial problems. We are a very spirited school that is bursting with pride for where we are from. I would not want to go anywhere else. Azusa has an amazingly successful band and pageantry, some highly successful students, and an all around Aztec pride! I know that everyone thinks we are terribly behaved poor kids we are so much more than that. We are a family at Azusa High and that's what makes us so great no matter the circumstances. -Once An Aztec Always An Aztec

I have gone to Azusa High School for about two years now. I've heard this and that about the school. I am going to have to say that MANY people misinterpret this school. they assume that the school is full of gang bangers, bullies, and everything. You have to realize the big picture. That is life. Anywhere you go, there are problems. The difference with Azusa High School and the others you may compare our school too is, our school is full of students who stand out. Every students is known for their skills. It may be sports, band, their academics, or just because they are who they are. Though our school may have the students who don't shine, this gives your student a better chance of being noticed. I can first hand that I have stood out and been recognized because of my actions. That's how easy it is.

Azusa High School is in the middle of a low income area, yet, the band director has developed a top 5 marching band, wind ensemble, and jazz band. For this and many other reasons, I believe AHS is great!

As a new graduate of AHS, I am proud to rate it as a 4-star school. Every teacher and every counselor I encountered throughout my years cared and were incredibly involved with each student; some even remember the generations of families that have attended. The years of experience of the professors only reinforces their love for our school and the great kids that attend. Although Azusa may be IN PART 'economicaly disadvantaged',there are certainly kids from affluent areas that decide to attend because of the smaller classes, the tranquil and joyous environment and wonderful educational and extracurricular programs. Many of my friends went on to Ivy League schools and other very prestigious universities, even under veterinary programs. I believe this may seem as much for the school if compared to the statistics, but as a student I promise you will not regret sending your child to Azusa High School.

azusa high is very poor. The counselors are not dedicated when parents try to talk to them they need to make an appointment even if they are available. The teacher called parent only when the kinds are in trouble they never look for ways to help and its always hard to have appointments with them. The city of azusa is really nice but the schools are in need of dedicated teachers who care for the kids

Azusa High School is great. I am a graduate and hopefully someday my child will be too. I can't think of a better city and school to raise my child in. Anyway, learning starts at home. Get involved in your kids education and don't blame the school or faculty. High school students are almost young adults already. If they're not excited or passionate about learning and their futures than that's the fault of the home. High School is a time and place to stop making excuses and rise to your potential. For those that do, it doesn't matter which school you go to. All that matters is how much education you seize from those offering it.

The Azusa School is very poor teaching academics. The teacher did not know how to use different teaching strategies. Teacher should know that each students can learn. Other teacher do help the students when needed.

I think azusa high is a very poor school and doesn't offer anything to studens, if you want the very best for your child, you would not send them to azusa, you can look at azusa from outside and tell it's poor, the district is poor and so is the city of azusa!

I am the sibling of a student at Azusa High. My baby sister graduates this month. She's spent her last four years at this school & I don't think I, or she, would've been happier anywhere else. The teachers (all of them) are warm & sensitive to the everyday concerns of our adolescents today. The are patient & caring in their teaching styles & a pleasure to work with whether you're the student or the parents/guardians. I'd like to commend one of the teachers in particular, Mr. Lewis, drama & arts teacher. Never have I met a teacher with more genuine interest, in each & every one of his students, than this man himself. He has a style that is unique, an ear that is always open & a big shoulder for those tears of frustration or confusion that sometimes arrive. Thank you, Mr. Lewis, for being you.

Azusa High School has been my home away from home. It has its much needed updates, here and there, but I have been very happy with my teachers and most of the materials they've provided. Sometimes the general student body can be lacking of school spirit, but it's probably a trend. Regardless, if more people and parents were to get involved, the school would get a 5/5 rating over all. The school is relatively old, so we're currently in bad need of home fields for our different teams... and a new pool ;) Other than that, I've liked my experience here. Go Aztecs!

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.
