We are new to Banning High, so far we like it a lot. It is not as bad as people have said. The teachers are great. the campus is clean. We can't wait for the new addition to be finished. Go Broncos!

Banning High School has many resources for success--some excellent teachers, classes and extracurricular opprotunities. Like anything in life, Banning High is what you make of it. You really have to want to get out of a small town enough to take advantage of everything the system has to offer.

Banning High School is one of the best high schools in California. It has excellent teachers, well-behaved students, and a great overall instructutional material. Anybody who may go here should consider themselves lucky because this school is second to none. Broncos have a better learning environment than the Beaumont Cougars and the test scores have shown it. I am proud to say I am Bronco!

There are many students who graduate, well educated and prepared for the future, there may be some downsides to the school, but the teachers do their job wonderfully, especially for the pay they get.

There are some verry good teachers at Banning High

Teachers and Student population are a wonderful, caring and out going group. Always moving forward without the support of District Administrative Staff. Teachers often spend great sums of their own money to enrich the classroom curriculum. Banning Unified would easily became a great school if Administration would involve all stakeholders in its decision making process as well host community forums.

The counselors are the best. My student was really struggling and our family was having a terrible time with trust with him. As a result, both counselors went above and beyond their duty in giving us support, ideas and strategies to get them back on track. They really cared about our son.

BHS could of been a lot better...academically, and physically. I must admit broncatello did improve the arts (music, drama, etc) but more focus needs to be on the students who are struggling.

Commited and loyal staff. Small town charm and appeal. Teachers and administration genuinely care about kids. Tough mix here with socio economic problems but do the best with what they have at their disposal.

Kudos to Dr. Jim Broncatello and the staff at Banning High School for their dedication and effort in working to improve the overall academics and image of Banning High. More needs to be done. Parental involvement is very low, and is reflected in student test scores and academic index. I would like to see more job-prep classes for those students who are not college material. Safety and cleanliness are also issues that can be improved. A new gymnasium is being built and the school has recently been painted.

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.
