YV really isnt what you think it is. Currently, I'm a sophomore here and i have to say i have no complaints about receiving my education here, despite what others may think. its hilarious how people make this school out to be. Yes, the rumors are true to some extent, like the Hispanic population, but is that really a bad thing? i always get scorned and looked down on when i tell people i go here, and it really saddens me. people assume its an easy school, where only idiots and super ghetto kids go. saying these things only make you look close minded and stuck up, because honestly, YV is just like any other highschool. it has bad and good kids, great and horrible teachers. going here has changed me for the better in so many ways, and i can really say i love it here. the aura is so calm and chill, because everyone keeps to themselves. everyone's experience is different, and some may not agree with me, but with an open mind and a drive for success, you can make your high school years here really great and worth it, as im doing right now. i wouldn't trade this school for anything else. Warrior Pride all the way.

YVHS is a wonderfule school that meets the students where they are and challenges them to improve themselves and prepare for the future. It is a wonderfully diverse campus that can meets the needs of AP students, English learners, and everyone in between. The Health Science and Education Academies are great programs and the addition of career tech classes ensure success of the students. The academics are rigorous as evidenced by four Gate Scholarships in the past four years.

I absolutely love this school. I just graduated from yv and even though it has some bad kids, its a fantastic school. Every school out there has bad kids. Most of the trouble is caused by freshman and sophomores. But yv has many great people, fantastic teachers, a caring staff, and so many clubs and sports to choose from. Any negative stuff you hear, like there is a fight every day, is just from half empty types of people. Yv is a great school and i'm proud to say that i'll always be a warrior!

i love this school. who ever said the teachers are out of control is wrong. you must be a freshman or sophmore. but this school is not bad at all. the teachers are great! and the only students that mess up the school this year are ; freshman and sophmores who think they are all that. sorry but its true.

Let me tell you the truth about Ygnacio Valley High School. I've been a student for 3 years, and I must say YV is truly an incredible school. I get scorned by people from other schools when I tell them that I go to YV, and I think it's humorous that people can judge a school's potential by listening to rumors. Yes, the majority of the school (racial diversity aside) isn't up to par with state standards, but that has nothing with the school's educational aptitude. Spectators observe YV and only notice the negatives. What's overlooked are our true diamonds in the rough: our top scholars, our excellent honors/AP programs, our diverse selection of courses, and our hardworking teachers who strive to students succeed. Do you really think Ygnacio Valley High is an easy school? Try taking our Honors Chemistry class, or our AP US History, then come talk to us.

I was a student at this school and currently have a sister who is attending as a Junior. To give YV credit, they have a bunch of students on hand who have terrible economic problems at home. However, this doesn't excuse them for their lack of higher academics. I do not recommend this place for anyone who is trying to pursue higher academics. Not only have they discouraged my sister from skipping grades and getting ahead, their AP test coaching is terrible. If you want diversity, go travel.

This school has great enthusiastic teachers and sports teams with various events .My son is growing with positive feedbacks from this school.

I think YV is an awesome school. It is very diverse in people & ideas which is more than most schools in the area can say. I agree, academic resources aren't the best, but YV's diverse student body gives insight to life outside sheltered suburbs, which is important for those pursuing college far from home. Also, in my day (class '05, not that long ago) I found YV students less cliquey and more willing to work/interact with others that had different tastes in music, social class, etc. I'm proud to say I graduated from YV... I know it's not the best school, but it certainly is not the worst. If anything, I recommend this school for parents who want to offer their children not only education, but depth to their high school years.

YV is a diversified school many different cultures attend this school and for the most they are working hard to create a positive learning environment. Improvements in school spirit is needed for all sports, drama etc... Students need to communicate with the staff and staff needs to listen as is true for the opposite. I believe there is alway room for improvement and always room for praise. Keep up the good work and focus on a goal of improvements.

I'm going to be a junior at YV next year, I am so tired of hearing that Ygnacio Vally High is a 'bad' school. I love YV and as long as you know the difference from right and wrong you'll be fine. I love YV not only because the teachers are great, but I love sports, I know YV isn't the first place you think of when you think of great sports, but I made varsity basketball as a freshmen, and I grew as a player a lot. YV is making me grow, and allowing me to experience the real world, and I am learning a lot about other cultures. In my eyes YV is a great school.

Ygnacio Valley High School has many excellent and dedicated teachers and some that are not so dedicated. The pricipal and administrative staff are hard-wroking and dedicated and the parents who volunteer and fantastic. My son is getting a good education at YVHS in part because his parents volunteer, and attend school meetings, and meet his instructors, and hold everyone including my son, his instructors, the administration, and ourselves, accountable. I am very happy with YVHS. It is a California public school and suffers the same funding problems of all California public schools. The majority of voters in California consider funding of public schools a very low priority and the qualtiy of all the public schools reflect that reality. Parents with children in California public schools must get involved and make their children's education a top priority, or they should spend $1,000+ a month on a good private school.

My son is going to be a Junior in 2006/2007 and has absolutely loved YV. He achieves high grades in very difficult AP and Honors classes and also is very active in the school. I am also involved in volunteering with certain programs at the school and know that there are alot of positive things going on at Ygnacio. I am proud of the ethnic diversity that this school has to offer...it gives him a very good understanding of the current ethnic makeup of California today. We've been lucky to participate in sports that have had great and consistent coaching...but I do see that isn't the case with every sport. Overall, I think YV has been great for him. I have another child entering this year and am excited for the years to come.

I used to attend this high school & it was great! The teachers were really helpful and were always willing to stay over time for students. There were a lot of activities going on in this school such as sports, music, arts, and leadership!

I have a junior attending this school. I have been very disappointed in the school. The gang activity and lack of support in the teachers and coaching staff at this school are unacceptable. I would not send another child to this school.

My son is now a junior in YVHS and I will be removing him and placing him in a continuation school - I only hope it isn't too late for him; he is very discouraged, and I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped out of school altogether. I have been very disappointed in the ability of the teaching or administrative staff to assist him in any way.

Our daughter is a freshmen and YV and is in all honors classes. She has maintained her 4.0 because she is a hard worker. The teachers have not shown interest in our daughters academic success. We are very dissapointed in the staff's lack of interest in the students. The extracurricular sports programs are terrible. My daughter has been on the volleyball and basketball teams. There is NO parent or staff participation or support for these programs. We had to pay for a bus for BB away games and still have not had one. The athletic director, coaches and administrative staff are not supportive in any way to the parents concerns or quest for answers. Overall, we are VERY DISAPPOINTED in Ygnacio Valley High and are aggressively searching for alternatives.

I am a parent of a Senior, class of 2006. I also am very involoved with the school and volunteer. We are very happy at YV and my son has done well. I truly believe it is up to the student to acheive and parents to support them. As a parent it is up to us to support the school, teachers and our children. Get involved! Great progress has been made at YV and it continues. The administration and teachers work hard and it is showing. I look forward to my next child starting at YV in 2007!

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.

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.

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.
