I would like to state; this school tries. It tries to motivate you to try your best and improve your skills. They encourage you to only take activities you are interested in. I feel that is quite amazing, because it works. Though I have a concern, I will blunt: despite this, I'd provide a 0/10. why? There's no cross dressing day, disastrous! I would like to see handsome girls and pretty boys, please and thanks! 0 satisfactory with my current school experience!

BJH was okay for my son, however, he was in a sport, in AP classes, and I was involved (here and there on the weekends). The parents are rather cliquey and tend to stay in their own groups, unless you donate big (in which case you can do whatever you like) you better volunteer and be proactive in your child's academic and extra curricular life here or they WILL be overlooked. I am taking my daughter out of Brea because it's getting rough around here ( Looking into Charter schools). The staff is a "little bit" rude to minorities and the disabled... The counselor was discouraging my AP student from applying to any UC's! VOLUNTEER in your child's sport or activity or they will not be fair to your kid! Otherwise it's good enough, nothing horrible, nothing great. If you are reading this, you are a caring parent and your kid will probably be fine. Just stay involved =) *I've never met the principal but I don't hear good things *Teachers seem mediocre but will do *campus is nice and clean *there seems to be a lack of dress code regulating (girls) *I've known several students to drop out and decide to be "models" makes me wonder what the heck is going on up there. Good luck!

I am a firm believer that school is what you bring to it. My child is a very good, but not great, student. He generally has a positive attitude and overall enjoys his general experience at school. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for me as a parent. I had a complaint about a teacher's attendance at school and events, and took it directly to the teacher. He said it wasn't his problem. I then followed chain of command and went to principal, and he said it was between me and the teacher. Round and round in circles. My next stop is the board. I will not go away, so they better get ready. This school is generally quite good, but it is let down by poor administration at the top end. Too bad, considering the Brea community is such a fine place to live. If I had to do it over, I would have put my child in a different high school.

This school is for certain ethic groups and well to do families that can buy their childs way through school. Grades are obtained through wealth not academic ability. Student body is very stuck up.

Excellent School! Academic education is outstanding. The school community embraced both of my daughters who were Inter-district transfer students. One daughter received a full academic scholarship and the other a scholarship for 60 % of her college expenses. Both daughters are attending major universities in New York City! Thanks BOHS!

This is not a great school. It's mediocre like its middle school however all the students who cause the school problems get sent down to the continuation school. They have a great teaching staff that is consistently let down by poor administration and an apathetic student body. Basically students there only care about themselves and their college application than the school itself, the facilities get pretty rundown at the end of the year due to this indifference.

In every year there are teachers that are wonderful at teaching, and horrible at teaching. Unfortuneatly for students like myself, it leans toward the latter side. Most teachers at this school have little conviction to teach, do not know how to teach, or just don't do anything. They understand very little and do not comprehend any issues that arise. The principal is especially difficult to work with.

This school has no compassion for families in need. Our son had an issue at school and our whole family was treated with such disrespect and disdain that we are looking into private schools. Not everything about a school has to do with it's scores. The administration at this school and at the Brea Olinda district is the worst in Orange County - beware!!!

My child attends this school and I wish I could transfer my child out but I can't. My child comes home complaining about the teachers. At back to school I have met them and they do seem unhappy just no enthusiasm. My child works hard and has very good grades its just a shame that this is a school my child can't wait to leave.

this is a great school academicly and sports wise I will continue to say great things about this school as long as its greatness continues I highly recogmend for parents to put their children in this school


Posted July 25, 2008

Much of the curriculum is based on memorization rather than learning. They give extra credit to bump up a child's grade by having them collect cans for recycling or visiting local food fairs. . . in other words, credit for non-academically related activities. The principal is very difficult to work with.

I'm a sophmore at Brea Olinda High School and I feel that it is a wonderful school. It has wonderful teachers and is very well rounded. I also feel that if your child doesn't fit in, its not the schools fault, there are more then enough oppurtunities for your child to get involved.

This school is so disorganized, when my child started here I just didn't feel welcomed its just so busy and it doesn't seem like the Principal cares about making the teachers happier. For if the teachers feel appreciated then they will be more willing to do more. This school needs more energy. Its too bad for Brea is a popular City. I will just do my best for my child.

Brea-Olinda High School is a beautiful campus., However, some teachers and Mr. Halpin are not so great. The teachers don't take responsibility for their mistakes and Mr. Halpin only offers excuses instead of an apology or solution. It doesn't seem like he cares at all.

Beautiful campus. Wonderful fine arts program. Very sports focused. Busy campus, always bustling with activities. Lots of school and city pride. The staff seems well liked and respected by the students. Clever and enjoyable activities all year. Totally Incredible Grad Night. Tons of opportunities for parents to get involved.

I just graduated from this school and I loved it. It ws fun, safe, and is a gorgeous campus! Prinipal Halpin has little involvement. Mr. Parish,in charge of disipline is nice for the most part. The teachers were great, most students were on there sides. Guidance counsilor are great! Student love them all.

I would rate the academic programs a B-. Depth of overall teacher involvement..lacking. Large problem with inter-active/personal skills of current principal, many certificated positions are more concerned with salaries/benefits than the well being/success of their students. Time commitment/involvement with their students is not there. Many in classified positions, appear unhappy with direction. Athletically, the school programs have been in decline over the past 3-4 years, except two or three sports where that sport's booster club has the strength to maintain some degree of parity for their respective teams.

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.
