My son attended Culver City High School. He graduated last year. The school and teachers are excellent, caring and dedicated. We had children in Private as well as this Culver City High School, and this school was as good as any private school we attended. The teachers were the most dedicated, and the most caring that we found. The only downside to this school is the size. If your child does well in large school environments, I would recommend this school. If not, then try other choices. The electives are excellent, the parent participation is mixed. But those who do volunteer, and involve themselves in Culver City schools, are great hard working parents. The school is in need of some capital improvements, but the school board is dedicated to seeing the school receive the needed improvements. I was very impressed with the staff and administration, and although they are stretched with the number of students, seem to know each one personally. They care deeply about being a great school, and this is reflected when you interact with them. If your student does well in school or applies themselves, then the AP and Honors program is one of the best I have seen.

This school is fantastic. The teachers are very helpful and the community is great. I love going to this school, especially because of the academy of visual and preforming arts. They have really good programs for the arts and they really help me to be creative. I highly recommend this school to any student. They are willing to help you here.

Culver City High School is the home of the Academy of Visual & Performing Arts which is a one-of-a-kind arts academy where students can have a hands-on experience making films, staging plays, making great art and music and dancing!

This school is wonderful. I would definately recommend this school to any parent who wants to send their child here. Teachers help the students with all their needs, there are wonderful EC programs, and the disciplin level is wonderful. They make sure your child is on track !

The administration and teachers lack interest with the children. Most of the administration office have a bad attitude and our not helpful. There are some teachers who show interest, but very few. As a parent I tried working with my daughters teachers in getting a weekly update on her grades and only 1 was willing to work with my husband and I. It's very dissapointing when a parent wants to be involved, but the teachers at CCHS don't seem to care.

excellent oppurtunity to be active in school activites, and very nice afterschool extracurricular activites. Teachers are very helpful and kind to the students!

This is a very good school. My daughter has done excellent with her AP classes, and she is always involved with EC activities. There are a couple teachers that don't excel at helping students that may be having a hard time in a particular subject, but for the most part, the teachers are pretty good. I would recommend that the College Couselors meet more with students to guide them through the tests needed for college entry.

I don't see a real interest in the individual student as I am used to. The teachers and administration seem to have a limited ability and desire to communicate with 'most' of the students. I just wish they were as vigilant with the success of the students as they are with enforcement of their rules and their regulations.

Posted March 16, 2007

My son is a junior and is doing excellent, taking AP classes. The teachers have motivated him and plenty of homework given. The only thing I would recommend is I wish the College Counselors would interact more with the parents as far as what tests need to be taken (SAT, ACT, PSAT, SAT Subject Tests). Other than that, it's a quality school and administration and teachers care and are involved.

Students are not prepared for college. I also feel staff needs to keep a better eye on what goes on in the bathrooms and monitor usage of the computers.

I read a lot of the reviews on this page, and didn't understand the negative ones. I graduated from Culver City High School in 2005 and absolutely loved my high school. I was involved in Student Government, volleyball, and swim team. The teachers are amazing because they always seem to be there after school when you need a classroom to stay in, instead of just walking around campus looking for trouble. I have never felt unsafe at that school either because security guards were always roaming up and down the halls. The diversity is great because we had multi-cultural assemblies, and festivals and I learned so much from all of the different people.The academy of visual and performing arts is one of the best theater programs that in high schools in my area. We always had music during lunch, games and parent involvement was always going on.

My son just finished his first year. Teacher interest in students less than enthusiastic. Some are great with keeping parents updated,however homework assignments on the net not updated regularly. Moderate overall.

My son has attended Culver City MS and is now in HS. I have found the district to overall be, Just OK. I do enjoy his HS teachers better. They are very approachable and friendly, for the most part, and I appreciate their efforts. The parent involvement seems to be one specific group of parents.

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.
