Although Eastlake HS has a large student body, the teachers and administration do a good job of helping each student feel like they matter and helping each student find the path that will lead them to the greatest success in their future. I think the school communicates well with parents and is very supportive of the active Parent Teacher Student Association. There are many different clubs, support systems and opportunities for any kind of student and the athletics program is very successful. I think that this school is the best that the CA public school system has to offer.

We moved to Eastlake specifically for the schools in this area and we, the entire family, really like Eastlake High School and the area. The teachers are super engaged, helpful and available.

I think this school is outstanding! The parent/teacher communication here is absolutely AMAZING. If you call or email your child's teacher w/any questions, they get back to you within a couple hours, not days! They have JupiterGrades.com so you can always look up your kid's grades and see teacher's notes about how your kid is doing in classes. You can also opt to get school text messages sent to your phone for report card info or if your kid is late or absent. There's honestly nothing the kids can get away with here w/out you being notified right away. They have the highest high school API scores in the South Bay. The teachers are incredible and truly care about your child's education, their future goals and they treat students w/respect. I'm very happy my daughter is going here. And to the person who wrote in their comment that the kids here are kind of snobby just because these kids here don't act ghetto doesn't mean they're snobby they just know how to act right. p.s. I love their monthly "Coffee with the Principal" gatherings! Great way to interact with the Principal and other parents.

Eastlake is the top school in the Eastlake district. I feel it is over-rated though,you have block schedules and a lot of quizzes. KIds are kind of snobby, they drive BMWs.Mercedes,Range Rovers... Just because schools have high API scores does not mean they are actually good and that your student will enjoy the school. Similarly, just because a school has a low API score does not mean they are bad.

My son and I have had a horrible experience at this school. I could never recommend this school to anyone.

Our son recently graduated from Eastlake High School with a honors diploma and will be attending a top notch college in the fall. We felt the education he received there was excellent. The school offers a variety of AP and honors classes that will help prepare students for the next level. Along with the outstanding athletic, arts & performance, music and robotics programs, Eastlake's diverse student population and sense of family, makes it one of the best public high schools in the county.

A very fine school, with outstanding teachers, caring counselors, good opportunities for participation in sports, music, robotics, etc., Eastlake harbors a rich environment for learning. My daughter is now a senior and has taken many challenging AP and honors classes, and I believe she is being well-prepared for college. I am hoping the school will continue to flourish despite all the budgetary concerns.

Eastlake High School is by far the best high school in the Chula Vista area and beyond. Although, they do not have a wide variety of class choices but decent ones, the teachers and staff were trained very well. I like that spanish isn't the only language choice. Counselor's try to help most of the time but they're usually out on meetings. They have a very nice facility and great students. Principal walks around at least once a week to check up on random classes and takes notes down and makes changes if needed and the rest of the staff are just very kind.

My daughter is always complaining how the curriculm of her grade (9th), is boring and not challenging. Its very dissappointing that our tax $ for education, seems to provide such a poor quality for our children.

The wide range of opportunities Eastlake High displays is admired throughout the Sout Bay. Eastlake is filled with great learning, progression in sports, the arts, and extra curriculars, and overall has alot of heart

Best group of RSP teachers I have ever worked with. They are genuinely concerned with helping your child be successful and spend the extra time needed when necessary.

We are very pleased with the curriculum, activities, and administration at Eastlake High School. Our child has participated in sports and music programs. There are so many opportunities for kid's to excel at this school!! The schoolwork is challenging and well-rounded.

I have had 2 sons attend Eastlake. They both played sports. One graduated 2 years ago, although he was not one of the higher achievers academically. Jis coaches held him as well as the whole team to higher standards with their GPA as well as in the community. I believe any of the coaches, counselors, and staff at Eastlake hold and expect our students to these higher standards that we would expect from our children. If not for the coaches requiring more from my son he would not have the confidence to persue and honorable career as he has and now my 2nd son would like to serve his community in the same profession. I am very proud to say my sons are graduates from Eastlake High.

Eastlake is the best high school in the South Bay. One of the best in the county. Test scores are among the highest to be found in the San Diego area. As the parent of a graduating senior this year, I know that Eastlake High prepared my son to be successful in college next year and beyond. My son participated in many extracurricular activities, including drama, ACE, sports, community outreach, among others, all available through the programs offered here. My thanks go to all the excellent staff for their efforts to help make my son the best he could be.

Absolutely outstanding school in the county. I trust this school with my children and my children has been doing so much better. They've been active, playing in sports. My daughter who is now an alumni played basketball and my son now plays football. I thank this school from my heart.

This school is equipped with the latest technology and access to many academic opportunities for students to take full advantage of. They also have a great tennis team and the facility is new.

My daughter graduated from Eastlake High School in 2005 and is doing great in her first year of College in a California UC. THIS IS a GREAT school. Multi cultural, AP courses, plenty of Extra's! Super teachers and counselors. Sports are a BIG thing. There is no reason a child can't succeed here. Only they can hold themselves back. If they want to learn this is the place. Parent support is good. Could be better. Trouble can be found at any school, but it is minimal here.

Eastlake high school is a great school where students face the 'real world' in a sense. I was a student there and made it to Stanford University. The education and resources are there if your student reaches for them. I am convinced that every student can achieve greatness at this school- but it has to be their choice. The faculty is amazing, no teachers will ever teach life better than them. The diversity asures that no one feels left out- and those that do ultimately bond together anyway. Eastlake is a splendid school.

Posted April 7, 2005

The principal has gone overboard on attempting to establish the prestige of his school by getting rid of the majority of Honors classes and forcing students to either take AP or accelerated classes. This is not good for students who wish to take a challeneging class but feel they cannot cut it in AP classes and lowers their GPAs as regular classes are on a 4 point scale for GPA and honors classes are on a 5 point scale. The range of teacher quality is very diverse but on the whole, they are all good. The best programs are the ones where two teachers team up and have the same students for two classes. (Most of the time the two classes are English and History). This joint teaching system works very well and influences friendships among the students as they are in the same class with the same peers.

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.
