I moved here from another state where the school district we came from was very organized. To this day I still get emails regarding up coming functions. It has been very frustrating to me since my son entered ORH due to he lack of communication. It seems like the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. You can never get a straight answer from everyone. They greatly lack organization. When you do find out about events it is usually the week of if you are lucky and many times the day before. I have never seen a school where the faculty (teachers) do not come out and support the students. The parents are not active within the sports either. They are great at complaining but yet when asked to volunteer they are no where to be found. I had concerns regarding my sons grades I called to his counselor on server occassions and emailed as well. It took the counselor over 3 weeks to email back and she never returned any of my calls.

I have a sophmore and a freshman here it has been a pleasant journey. The number one concern I had as a parent when they entered high school was thier safety. To date i have observed a safe enviroment at Otay High. This really means alot to a parent specially now a days with the violence that is heard of in high schools.

No diversity and extremely large student population. Administrative organization at this school is minimal. The teachers are, for the most part, efficient. My daughters are transfers from another state. It has been extremely difficult for them to fit in at this school.

This school has great academics, but sadly the class sizes are way to large for any help if needed. They have classes with the number of students in the fifties, it's that bad. It's hard to get 1-on-1 time with the teacher if you need help, but they always do try. This school is great if you don't mind having your student amongst 50 others. If you want more personalised education, you should look elsewhere.

Otay Ranch High School has upheld a very fine reputation as far as academics and curriculum. When it comes to the students they have had the highest regard to keeping them educatedand prepared for whatever they choose to pursue. The teachers are amazing with a select few that should be more prepared for their classes. Although a bit crowded, the standards of which the students are taught is good.

Average in the state generally ranked #49 of 50 states is NOT good. Too much teaching to the test by at least half of the teachers. Dependence on Scantron penalizes the students from really learning. CA has to do it better and smarter, but everyone seems to be running in circles stressing acceptable levels of merit rather than true learning. If your teachers refuse to grade the homework, why give it?

Best programs available, over fun great staff to work with. Teachers are very talented and understand the material that they are teaching. Safety could be better because other schools nearby have gang related issues and try to get the students at Otay Ranch involved. Mr Broz is currently doing a Great Job.

Son just graduated and it was a great school. Only problem was the parking is horrible and it was crowded, but the staff and faculty are great!

As a parent I have been quite disappointed in the lack of diversity at Otay Ranch High School. Additionally, the attempts at assisting us have been meager at best.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 14, 2006

Our daughter was in the first graduating class and we were happy with prom planned events and graduating ceremony. The parking situation for open house night and graduation was horrible. We found the teachers to be caring also impressed with their immediate response when sent an email or note requiring information about our daughters class participation, test, homework, or her grade at this point of semester. We also were impressed with the counselors and their dedication toward each student. Our daughters counselor changed each year but their dedication and sincerity never changed. We believe the principle has everything to do with the fine staff at Otay Ranch.

Wow! Its a really nice campus, the staff is exellent, and they have so many good things to offer!

I'm currently a junior at this school. It's overcrowded, lacks even an ounce of spirit, and the system makes it impossible for me to take full advantage of their curriculum. Last year I had more than two teachers throughout the year in four of my classes. Their music program and other e.c. activities are very poor, I think because of all the money they spent on that football field (the one with fake grass). The staff can be rude at times, to both students and each other.

Otay is an excellent school, very new, yet slightly overcrowded. The teachers are excellent with many purposely leaving schools they had taught at for decades to open a new school. The kids are taught from a structured, standard based curriculum in clean classrooms.

Great school! Have been happy with the teachers and adminstration. They have been very organized with the paper work.

Posted January 19, 2006

Happy teachers, students and parents in general. Can't get anyone to let us help out in any way...don't they want parent involvement? Parking and pick-up situation unbearably bad. Need a city bus to take the kids somewhere safe to pick them up. NO LIBRARY HOURS AFTER SCHOOL? I want my kid in the library for an hour after school doing his homework until the traffic calms down! Year-round school is worth a lot of the hassle, but we still need more opportunities for involvement and a solution to the parking and bus problem.

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.
