Posted February 2, 2010

I'm an alum of EMHS, and I have to say that it was the best school I attended during my formative years. Coming from LAUSD, it was unusual dealing with a school where the teachers and admin staff actually cared. Sure, it has its problems. There are a handful of teachers that really couldn't care less and the school could use more funding. But for the most part, this school gets it right in terms of staff, support, academics, citizenship and leadership, etc. Most importantly, it makes the most of what it has, and if your child has it in them to be an outstanding individual, this place will nourish it.

I attended this school for three years. I transfered unfortunately and now I realize the EMHS was an extremely good school compared to where I am now- (LAUSD district)

Good school and excellent teachers. Give everything they got and are willing to take time out of their time to help a student pass.

One of the best things about this school is seen in the caring environment that the staff and teachers create. For example, when awards are handed out during the assemblies, we not only shake hands, but we also embrace in hugs. This shows that there is definitely a bond between the students and staff. I believe Mr. Doug Halvorsen has done a wonderful job at being not only a principal, but as a role model as well. He will truly be missed when he leaves this year.

I 3 daughther's that graduated from E.M.H.S and one is currently a JR. I think it's a wonderful school. It has many activites/sports for kids to get involve in. Some of the teachers there are top quality. The staff, teachers, and students make the hight school what it is, and thats a great high school.

I am a former student of EMHS and I have to say that it was the best four years of my life. I am glad to say that the teachers there are the best I have ever experienced to this day, as I am in college. The teachers there are excellent as well and the counselors and the administrative staff. I am proud to say that I graduated El Monte High, the best high school there is.

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.
