I go here right now bp is really boring its too strict academically theres alot of slackers alot of unmotivated kids also theres alot of little dumb tagging crews but the sports here are actually good


Posted June 28, 2011

This school is so very sad. There are some good programs students can join. Sadly, the school is full of gangs and students are promoted despite their academic challenges. Baldwin Park High is perhaps the worst school in the San Gabriel Valley. The principal is one main problem for the school. He desperately wants to be superintendent of the district. His main focus is to have a high graduation rate no matter if the student is literate or not. I wish B.P. improves. Most of the graduating class this year cannot properly function in the work force.

The school has a handful of talented students, but the majority of the students are slackers, slobs, are unmotivated, and would be lucky to get into a mediocre college. They hold back the students who truly wish to learn as the teachers focus on making sure everyone meets the standard. Any desire to advance is deemed unnecessary and attempts to urge the teacher to delve deeper into the material are scoffed at and disregarded. In short? Worst. School. Ever.

I absolutely love Baldwin Park high school! There is so much emphasis on wanting kids to graduate and go to college! There are teachers that do teach well, care, and continuously encourage students everyday! There are also many great clubs that students are involved in, like; key club, mecha, student outreach, virtual enterprise, BP entertainment corps. (band, colorguard, drumline), orchestra, choir, AVID, french club, and so much more! Not to mention, sports! Many of our sport teams reached CIF! The current principal, Mr. Cruz is doing a wonderful job! He most certainly always has the students' well being in mind! He's not just 'some guy on the intercom'. He takes the time to say, 'Hi! How are you?' I am a proud Brave! I can't wait to see what else the future has in store for my remaining years at Baldwin Park High! =)

As a former student I viewed the changes it under went in four years. The change was definietly for the best, the API scores improved, the staff change was the best thing this district made. The past principal was very stubborn when it came to meeting the students needs. There are plenty of dedicated teachers and students know this is a stepping stone to the future. Of course there are those students who do not place the effort, but that is do to the lack of parent participation. If teachers, parents and students came together BPHS would improve 100 times more.

I believe BPHS can be an awesome school academically and athletically with the help of the new administrators. Hopefully, they have a new vision for our school to work together with students and parents and a determination to stand up for the student's education and stop emphasizing on the numbers. Parents and students have a lot of wonderful ideas. The administrators just need to take the time to listen and understand what issue are important to us. Then, you may get more parent participation. Good luck and wish you all much success!

Both of my two daughters out of my three have attended Baldwin High School and we have had a great experience. Just the exception for a couple of misunderstandings, but were able to work them out. But overall Baldwin Park is a pretty good school. The only thing that it really lacks is parent participation. Both of my daughters were involved in extra curriculum activities and I noticed that not too many parents got involved with their child. I believe that the school needs to do something and the parents need to start getting involved. It's sad when you go a competition and you are rooting for BPHS and you look around and you are the only one cheering! Come on PARENTS get involved!

I feel Baldwin Park High School is an awesom school- the teachers and principles that were there from way before laid out a wonderful path for the teachers and staff that are there now.

I believe Baldwin Park High School is a great High school to attend. I admire the RSP Teachers the guide me to a great pat. Futhermore I believe that all students could perform a great academic performinse it the students that choose there goals for them self. I grad 03 a year earlier because of wanting to go ahead a year early to college. So I believe its not the teachers ist the students. Furthermore the senior project is a great experience for myself becuse for my college curses that what I am using now.

This school has recently been remodeled and looks great. They have a great choral program and the band is fairly good, or at least had one while I was there, and their sports teams are climbing the ranks quickly. Teachers often want to help students and always maintain a good relationship with their students. It is kind of a low-income area, but there are many kids there who do want to succeed.

I believe that Baldwin Park High school is actually doing better now than a couple of years back. They have enforced strict rules in order to get students to class. I was a student at Baldwin Park and I like the changes that have occurred since I left.

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.
