Bonita High offers a good education for the high functioning student. I do believe that additional support should be offered, but budgets are low. They have come under fire recently due to the lack of credible sports programs. While their golf team is amongst the best, and the GIRLS basketball team is coached by knowledgeable mentors, the BOYS basketball program is the worst. The Freshman coach is knowledgeable as is the assistant JV coach, but the other coaches unfortunately show no credible ability to lead these talented young men. The volleyball coaching staff is knowledgeable. The football team walked out on the program due to the coaching staff. While the focus on high school should be academics, it does help young men and women when they are mentored by coaches whose knowledge and ability they respect.

This staff here is a joke. They are a terrible school and have no idea how to run this school. The vice principles especially are idiots.

If your child is planning on participating in the AP/IB track then this is a great school. My child is an AP Student and we were not happy with the lack of help and direction from my child's counselor. Also, Bonita Vista lacks attention to it's sports programs & fields. Kids from other schools attending sports functions at Bonita Vista have been heard commenting on how "ghetto" the school is. The principal only seems to be concerned with the high API scores for the school. Score boards, bleachers & fields are in dire need of repair.

The school is top-notch, Consistently the best academics in the district. The classes are tough many teachers hold Phd in thier feild and most have more than a decade teaching experience So if your kid is not ready to work hard this is not the school for them. However if they can keep up with the work BVHS provides a great jumping off point to a successful college experience and success in life.

im and 8th grader right now... and im from santee im movening up to chula vista and i will be in bonita vista high school.. district so thats where im goinggg... can anyone tell me what im expecting..?

As a current freshman parent and BVHS alumnus, I can say the school has retained a high academic rating, however this is upheld by such a small portion of the population that it is actually irrelevant. I believe that the staff has become complacent and relies on this population to "carry" them through. An ordinary student that could become extraordinary with a little help and motivation is just pushed along. My child was absent due to illness for a week and I only recieved an email response from 2 out of 6 teachers. I have literally stood in the office for 10+ mins while office staff chatted, until I finally interrupted them. I have only seen the principal at assemblies, she didn't even show up to a local CABE, education assoc. conferance, for an award she was nominated for, she didn't win....there are drugs, sex, etc... in every high school, BVHS is no exception, but the students' sense of entitlement and total disrespect for each other and faculty is appalling, I've heard better language in an episode of Lock Up.

My daughter started as a Freshman and is now in her Sophomore year at BVH. I am very pleased w/ the academics & support by all teachers. They really strive to stay in communication w/ parents & provide many tutoring options. The teachers are always open to meeting with students during their break hours. I have even received personal calls from teachers giving feedback on my daughters performance. She struggled at Bonita Middle but now at the High she is a straight A student due to the all the help available & encouragement...she is not book smart but very determined & is very greatful for the time teachers have given her. One negative is that principal is not really involved or available and her apprearance to me is not professional or appropriate. The asst/vice principal is always around though.

BVHS is a public school with additional opportunities (IB, AP, Performing Arts, 6 language programs, etc.) As a public school, there are limitations with administration, teachers, and the students themselves. There is a strength in diversity among the students and a new more invigorated teaching staff.

I've been going here since half of my sophomore and now my junior year. I can say that BVH is not a school you want to go to. For the most part teachers don't care if you have trouble with the material, I've tried asking for help but only received a one minute quick help session. Their security is so damn low, you can jump the fence in and out during breaks and during class, you can just walk into a classroom and pull your friend out with questions. The staff/counselors were of no help and lack approachability/friendlyness. I'm currently attending the BVH learning center and let me just say that I've improved tremendously. Please don't send your kid here. They'll end up a druggie. BVH is overall not a good environment.

I am A freshman Currently in my second week, and while it may be premature, I would like to venture an opinion. Everything seems a bit rushed, and a bit impersonal, with very many students, and not much to do. To attend Assemblies you have a spirit Shirt, which you must buy. The ASB seems to be open a bity irregularly, and I have yet to see the principal. The Teachers are mostly fine, good people. to have a 'Spirit Shirt'

I graduated from BVHS last year. I remember how prestigious Bonita Vista used to be. We were once held very high and students were proud to be there. From my freshman year to my senior year I noticed a great change. As much as I appreciated the cultural diversity in the beginning towards the end of high school, after Ramon Leyba left everything became too relaxed. I loved my teachers and have great respect for them all. I noticed that students began to lose school spirit. Students lost respect for their teachers, too. But lastly, I saw a lack of motivation and discipline. Plus, the school overpopulated.

This is one of the top 2 schools in the Sweetwater District in terms of getting an education. You see some of the best students in the district.

I personally attended bvhs last year for my sophomore year. I did not like bvhs because very few teachers were there to help their students achieve, most of them were just there for the money. The school has a lack of school spirit and a lack or respect for each other and school property. I personally would never recommend this school to anyone! -rubi lopez

If your child is planning on participating in the AP/IB track then this is a great school. Otherwise you are sending your child to a daycare. Ofcourse it maybe that way at other schools, but BVHS does have an excellent AP/IB program.

The focus of the admnistration has been to establish a proper learning enviornment, however with ap's/principal finding every meticulous detail to promulgate a disciplinary action, the project is deemed a hypocrisy.

Excellent academic programs, including the International Baccalaureate which prepares students for international study that is even more advanced than AP classes. Full athletic program and world renouned music performance program--the student sing and dance group travels internationally.

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 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.
