im a parent of a student that attends school here and i'm so dissapointed with SV. Many teachers get away with so much at this school and when u as a parent address a situation you get nothing resolved. All the staff covers for each other. It's awful when adult that we trust to teach our children are behaving just like children.

Its a great school where parents can trust teachers, staff and other students to have your kids love being in high school.... Teachers are friendly, knowledgeable and work together with parents in regard to our children, Principal cares about parents concern and always improve the quality of education given to the students and the school... Overall SVHS can give parents peace of mind and we only hope is for our children to be better than us specially comes to education ..

well i was in S.V for 2 years, those two years were great i got the chance to meet great friends and teachers. I then moved to MoVal, getting used to a new place was preatty hard (Mostly to this school). I always thought i had the chance to graduate with my friends at S.V. Know im a senior at Canyon Springs H.S ready to graduate but not with my real friends.

Hi, my name is Christian Meraz, and as a Freshman here at SV, I think it's a great school. Although labeled 'ghetto' by many people, it is on the contrary. There is so much to do that you'll never be bored. I participate in the school band and Drumline. It always keeps me busy keeping my grades in shape and keeping me out of trouble. For all incoming freshman, I highly recomend this school. Class of 2011

As a student I think this school is great. Though many people label it as 'ghetto'. No i like it and the Avid program is a natioal demo school. The only thing I do not like is the new 'houses' I think that its just a way of segregating kids with only the 'smart kids' or the 'trouble maker kids'.

I think this school is the best of the two. It offers young adults the opportunity to excell in academics and improve their community involvement. Also it has great teachers, that care about the students. Also it has a great sports program of the two high schools, and its football program is the greatest with the coaches being the best. Its coaches care about the program and kids, both on the varsity and the freshmen level. They will help the kids succeed in life, both on and off the field. Also an awesome football booster club that wors with the program too.

Sierra Vista is the better of the two h.s. in Baldwin Park. It offers more rigorous academic course work, but many students are unmotivated. The honors students excel, the low skilled students fail, and the middle are floating. I don't think this group has been addressed and technology is not widespread for the 21st century high school student. Positives are that teachers do care and that the new administration this year has made a positive difference. This school is definitely improving..

Its a really great school. Any new freshman to come will enjoy being at sierra vista. The peers, teacher, and staff are very helpful and friendly. The academics are top rated.

I think this school has knowledgeable teachers who care about their students success. the career counsler is great at giving and helping students with grant/scholarship information. I was really surprised to see how much money students who applied themselves received.

There is a new principal starting off the 2005-6 school year who used to be the principal of Northpark high school, the continuation school in the district. All of the assistant principals are new to the school as well. This could be an interesting year as the teachers are great and caring, and you never know what a new administration will expect.

The school is rather small campus-wise. The campus itself looks like a jail with its enclosed fences. The class sizes are a bit average, and the sports programs are a bit lacking. There are a few excellent AP teachers which make up for the rest who appear to not be as concerned about the the bridge between high school and college.

I think that the school was great! It has lots of good classes for students to choose from! The staff is a really good group of people and are really helpful to there students!

I also am not a parent, but a former student, and I loved S.V. I agree with the people who say your high school experience is what you make of it. I graduated at the top of my class, took all the AP classes available and was editor in chief of the school newspaper. I then went on to graduate from UCLA. I attribute everything I achieved to the wonderful teachers and opportunities I found at Sierra Vista. If you try to focus on the good and not on the bad, you'll find a world of opportunity at Sierra Vista. I did. Thank you.

sierra vista is an excellent school. i graduated from there as well as six of my siblings. my son has graduated from there in 2001. my daughter should graduate this year.

I hope that this school excels like I know it could. Parents need to get involved in their kids education. Students should report all unusual activities and not complain about them. I [graduated] in 1993 and had a good time. Wish I could have gotten more involved in school activities. This school has always had very good teachers but bad administrators. I hope it changes soon.


Posted September 13, 2003

(I am also not a parent, but a previous student.) I am proud to graduate from Sierra Vista High School and I will tell that to anyone who asks me about my high school experience because it offered many opportunities and I took those opportunities. As opposed to the majority of students who say that the school is 'ghetto' or 'boring' they are wrong. The reason for this is because they never got involved. In any school, the majority of the students who don't like their school never got involved. In Sierra Vista there are many sports, a wide array of clubs, and programs offered. There can't be something that a student can't do and if they don't have an interest in the set clubs, they have the opportunity to make their own club, such as what the Yu-Gi-Oh club. Furthermore, some students compare our school to other 'better' schools. The reason for this is because we are in a different community, so we have different situations and different problems to face. Overall, Sierra Vista has been improving and that's what counts. Many students are starting to get involved and loving it. That's what makes a high school experience fun. Some of my friends were in colorguard, swimming, basketball, wrestling, Key Club, ASB, MeCha, to name a few. On the academic level, many teachers stay after school to help out anyone in need. Career Counseling is also offered. The mistake of some students is not going out there to take advantage of the school.

I was a student, I got married my freshman summer to a graduated senior. I feel that S.V was a horrible school, with NO discipline. Drugs were being done on school grounds, and there were fights every single day. I feel that this school should be reviewed by officials.

I am not a parent, but I am a former student (2003 graduate). I just wanted to let the other person who commented know that there IS a debate club on campus, it's just that there were hardly any members (less than 10) that were dedicated to it. It's not up to the school to create the clubs... it's up to the students. It's just the lack of interest. If you want something to happen, make it happen yourself!

Posted May 2, 2003

(Note: I am a student, not a parent.) I currently attend Sierra Vista High School as a freshman/soon-to-be sophomore. To be fair, I do not enjoy studying here. Extracurricular activities are scarce here, with no drama or debate club around. What saddens me is that there is a Yu-Gi-Oh! club instead taking place. What does bring down this school is the negative atmosphere of the whole campus. Countless students don't give education a chance. People guess through all the standardized tests given. I've smelled pot more than once in school property, even during classes. I would rate my school a '2'.

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.
