Cerritos High School 1

I transferred to CHS ten years ago and i hated it. I had only one real friend for three years because it was very hard to make friends. The environment was boring, and kids segregated themselves... The koreans with koreans, the chinese speakers together, the blacks near the front of the school, etc. There were no interesting clubs, and it was hard to meet creative people who didnt simply study like zombies, or ex-gangsters. I went by the school and its gotten worse...they now have high fences that turn the place into a prison, and there is no color anywhere! Even the school colors are drab and lifeless, which just made me depressed. Plus the whole time I was there everyone had an inferiority complex because they didnt get into whitney, and even the teachers imparted it. At that time most teachers were bitter & bad to mediocre, and you couldnt change teachers easily. I think the science and math classes were better, if not interesting, but the english and history teachers were very meh. In fact most of the English teachers should've been fired, because they couldn't and wouldn't teach. It is a big school and the staff dont have time to know the students. Poor kids!

Well, Judging from the reviews by the students of Cerritos High School, I would be hesitant to send my child there. It seems very ironic that these kids are bragging about top-tier academics ,while using such seriously horrendous grammar.

My son is a Freshman at CHS. he was not happy at first as he did not have any freinds but after a couple of months, he was on the baseball team and made freinds through sports and in class. he loves it there and I am very happy, except for one of the teachers, who has no concern for a studying, as he is more concerned about being the coach to one of the sports. Thus he does not grade the students work, for months on end, and thus grades are seen to be so poor, only because he does not update as need be. Today my husband has made a formal complaint about this teacher, whom I hope is severely repremanded. We have no idea what our son's grade actually is as there are no grades to look at

Personally, I think Cerritos High School is a wonderful school. It's true that it might be hard to make friends or such, if you are new, but that is what it is like with any school. I had been an immigrant, yet I have been able to adapt to so many things, learn so much, and grow. I honestly think learning, as well as socializing, comes from the student's will to actually try. The school's purpose is to nurture and help that grow. I think Cerritos High School does a WONDERFUL job at doing this.

Personally, sometimes I like the school and do not like the school. I will break down the sections of the school. Students-The students are nice, but as a student that did not go to the ABC Unified Schools, it is really hard to make friends. I do not know anybody at that school and I have been attending Cerritos High School for 3 years and I haven't been able to enjoy my social life over there. Not once I haven't been able to go to their social events. I can see the kids at Cerritos High lack meeting new people(not including people from the ABC school district) Teachers-The teachers are good at the school. Most of them are good and few of them are not good teachers. I can't really say anything about them except they won't really care about you. I wouldnt recommend this school if you're new to the school.
