I understand the school is lacking in alot of areas,. I am concerned about the students safety regarding any bullying , that I have not heard of yet.. If anyone has anything to say if this is something to worry about leave comment. .. my son wants to go there but im not sure as yet...
We do not have 8-12 grade at Ceres High. It's 9-12. The principal and school leadership are amazing. It is unfortunate that many things are in danger of being cut from the school due to budget cuts.
I'm currently a senior at Ceres High and can honestly say that the school is not awful, but can also add that the school is not amazing. I have spirit, pride, and love for the school, but as for the respect for some staff, not at all. Most of the staff are incredibly easy to befriend, but there are some who are completely unfair and treat others with not as much respect as they do with others.
i think ceres hight is the best school in ceres they now how to make learning fun and educational and there are many activitys for students like me can participate and have fun
I feel that Ceres High School is doing great with the students given all the cuts that they have had to make with the Calif. budget cuts that the Legislatures has done. Morale is great with the students and the building/program for Technical is doing great. Giving students osther alternatives of education in case they can't afford or want to attend a 4 year collegs.
I'm currently attending Ceres High School and so far it's ok I guess. Most teachers are extremely lazy and do not keep up to date with grades and lack the ability to help their students. Some sports are great but the coaching staff is horrible in many ways. Student involvement is somehow amazing though. The management team here really show that they care for students and will do anything to get them to excel. Whenever I have a problem, I know that I can easily go talk to my counselor or even the Principal and they will welcome me with open arms as they do with anybody else. I really love this school other than the fact that my grades are horrible because of the teachers and the sports are not fun because of the unorganization of the coaches...
This is a good school if you want to go to a state university or a junior college. I personally have to say that this school does not prepare you for college, it lacks curriculum overview and about half of the staff is just there to teach and the other is not doing teir job too well.....
I am currently a student at this School and after transferring from another high school... I don't think this is a bad school... the only really problem is the lack of participation with the student thats why a lot of things get CANCELLED.
I'm a current student at CHS and I agree with alot of the reviews. Since the creation of CVHS, most of the overcrowding issue has been resolved. The teachers range anywhere from horrible to exceptional. I'm an art and drama student myself, and both of these programs are considerably lacking compared to others. There is no auditorium for plays, except a small gym with metal fold out chairs. The college counseling is okay, if you are looking to stay in state. For out of state, you're on your own. Academics are fine, but there is room for improvement, even in the honors.
I wish that CHS would have more curricular activities! My daughter is a junior and most dances get cancelled! I would like for my daughter to have something to talk about when she is older! We have spent plenty of money building the other high school - so I think it is only fair that the CHS students should have more dances - if there are not enough tickets sold - combine the two schools together!
This school is great! There is actually a lot of AP classes that are available to students. The only problem is that the school is a little crowded but this will be reduced due to the new school. There are an outstanding amount of music, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities in this school. I am really involved with most of them. Class activities, sports, and dance is really great. There is a great sense of school pride and the strive of students who want to attend college. We have some of the best staff available.
This school does a good job with the students that it works with. I have been very happy with the quality of the instructors that my child has had and the administration has also been very responsive to my concerns and questions. I have no complaints here.
Its an okay school. Teachers are great. But student body altogether are somewhat violent and into drug use/gang active. Its not such a good high school student wise. But educational wise its good.
This school is horrible! I had to transfer mid-year to the independent studies school. Teachers are ok some are excellent. But most don't help you out. They expect that if they send you to 'Homework Lab' youll be covered. Also so much gang activity. Fighting and harrassment is a huge problem. Basically staring at someone wrong is a reason to get stabbed. Drug use/selling is another issue. It has the potential to be an excellent school if you take out majority of the student body and keep the great teachers. And maybe get some new leadership. Then the school would be great, but over crowding, violence, lack of student/teacher interaction and parent involvement keeps this school from excelling.
I would like to point out that the teachers at CHS have gottenthe kis to perform better thatn almost 80% of the schools with similar demographics in California. They have to work with what they get. Gang problems, a system that wants them to babysit the trouble makers, etc. Obviously since the school offers tons of honors, AP, and college prep programs then the students have the opportunities they need. The parents are the true problems at any school in any state in any country. Either the parents are involved (which most aren't here, come watch a sport or play, most kids have no one there to let them know they are appreciated. If parents think the 100 or so teachers can be parents to the 2500 students they are sorely mistaken. The school infrastucture is fine, it's the clientele that is misguided.
I would like to say that as a parent of one student in this school I am very happy with the types of teacher we have except for the Collage Prep Teachers for English. My child has had alot of problems with the way they deal with grades for sophmores and from what I've been told and seen happen is not helping the student get ready for college when they expect them to do college work. They don't grade right and most of the students are failing due to poor grading guidelines. As for the basic over all of the school I think that it could do better where the students and teacher are working togeather and not against each other.
I think it could be a really good school but they need better teachers that pay attention to the students and that actually help instead of just giving the assignment and not helping them when they need help.
I also graduated from Ceres High School.I agree with the comments made by my fellow graduate. There is little to no parent involvement at this school. Most of the teachers are average, a few I didn't care at all for, and a few are exceptional. The school is overcrowded. Hopefully Central Valley High (couldn't they think of a better name?) will help relieve some of these problems. Mainly though, I believe the problem is that most parents (especially those of public school children) don't realize that the primary responsibility to educate, discipline, and teach morals to their children is theirs and theirs alone. Teachers are not jail wardens and they can't teach children who are unwilling to learn. What message are you sending to your chilren when you allow them to believe that their failure is entirely someone else's fault? Stop thinking of it as the instructor's job to make sure your child learns and start thinking of it as your child's job to make sure they learn from the instuctor. The class sizes are too big for that kind of individual attention. However, isn't that the way it is in most of California? In a way, I can't think of better way to prepare students for college. In college, class sizes are huge and teachers don't play babysitter. You have to want to learn. Give your kids a jump start on college now and making learning their responsibility. Go Bulldogs! '97 Rocks!
The staff is too politically correct. They cannot teach because they are afraid of hurting a student's self-esteem.
