As an incoming-sophomore this fall, I am extremely grateful I go here. Last fall, I was debating on whether to attend Classical Academy High School, Torrey Pines, or Canyon Crest, all of which were options that were open to me. While Torrey Pines and Canyon Crest had more to offer (AP classes, more class slots) I ended up attending Classical Academy. I was a bit disappointed, I was a lifer at one of the K-8 schools and wanted to break free from the mold, but after attending for a year I am glad I stayed. While my GPA may have been higher at the other schools, at CAHS, I have gotten a support that is far better than the other schools. I have a wide range of friends that attend that school, and have heard complaints about it. Reasons That I Love About CAHS 1) Students are kind, respectful, and are against bullying. 2) Misbehavior is not tolerated. There were students that mistreated me on my first day, and that student was sent to detention. Not only did the school condemn it, several upperclassmen were very firm in their fight against bullying the "fresh meat." 3) Teachers are an active part of the student's life. They spend time outside of the classroom meeting with students.

This is a great school with great accountability and has many different classes, AP classes, sports, and different after school programs.

Our daughter had recently invited a friend from a public high school to join her for the day at Classical Academy High School. The friend was astounded at how friendly and relaxed the teachers and the students were to each other. She said it felt like everyone was part of a big family. She could not believe how "open everyone is". At lunch, she mentioned how everybody mingled with each other. At her school, she said "you stick to your own group" and you do not socialize with anyone else. We feel like the luckiest parents alive to have found such a school as Classical Academy.

If you share the secular beliefs with the majority of the school then Classical Academy is a great place, however if you don't then this is not a good school. Classical Academy walks the line between being a private church school and a public school. Students are ostracized if they don't share the same beliefs as everyone else. Some teachers and staff members can be very narrow minded. The quality of education is average at best. The school touts high test scores, but look at the population of the school. They don't have the same issues other schools in Escondido do (ie EL students, special education students, etc.). It truly feels like 95% of the time is spent patting themselves on the back. If you want your children to be successful in the real world, past high school, this school does a terrible job of preparing students. Not somewhere I would want to send my children again.

Classical Academy High School is a school that cares - in every way possible. From the Principal who is involved with every aspect of the school (he is often seen filling in as a crossing guard when someone is absent) to teachers that are available before and after school, to support staff that is friendly and professional, to teacher support tutors who are available for the students and parents whenever you need them. This school has a full sports program for boys and girls, music, dance, visual arts, robotics, academic league, and any other club or activity you want. If they don't have it now, they will start it for you! We even have a video and board gaming club. CAHS has caring involved parents and students who are respectful and love their school. You can't find a better school than CAHS and we have been here since the start of the school. Can't wait for the new campus in 2014!!!

Amazing! Incredible staff, who really care about the students. Parent involvement is ongoing and strong. CIF sports. The best part?......The students! They are supportive of one another, they are just nice, respectful kids who are great members of our society already! They are undeniably gifted academically and mark my words, some day these kids will grow up to be the success stories, no matter if that means being great parents, inventors, company owners, or Nobel prize winners! CAHS rocks! They have the most humble of campuses I've ever seen, but they excel anyways!

This is our first year at Classical Academy. We are utilizing the online option and although it takes a lot of self-discipline to stay on task we are very happy with the school. At the beginning of the year a moral standard was set through the children completing the orientation course. It included ideas about flexibility and accountability and speaking with good purpose. I thought it was great that we started there and then got into our learning. The cirriculum is fantastic and the program is very organized. I am very pleased as a parent and I feel inspired knowing my child is getting a good education.

This charter school is small enough that teachers really know the kids and large enough to keep it interesting. We are not Christians and occasionally my son complains that he is in the minority and the other kids are very judgmental, however I do appreciate that the school has expectations of decency and respect. And he really is happy there, he is treated well, teachers are dedicated, and most of the kids are pretty reasonable. Standard of education seems good to me.

The teachers at Classical Academy are so engaged with the students and parents it sets the student up for success. The atmosphere is inviting and with the small class size the students gets more individual attention. It's so pleasing to be apart of such a great organization.

My son is enrolled in the studio program as a freshman. Freshman year can be overwhelming, but with the guidance of his teachers he is doing well.

My son has been at Classical Academy High School since 9th grade. The regular public school system never worked well for him. He is a super bright kid like most kids with ADD, but was very slow in getting work done and tender hearted as well. On demand work in class was very difficult for him. Teachers and administrators were always giving "advice" that didn't work for us. They were always trying to help me "fix" him. He was square peg that didn't fit their idea of a normal kid. It was unbearable. I looked around at schools and found Classical Academy High School. From the beginning I knew it was different. Everyone there wants my son to succeed in high school. The teachers are so kind and they bend over backwards to help him manage his classes. Even though he is in high school, I keep in contact with his teachers if there's any questions. They welcome the contact from parents and I don't get lectures from anyone. My son has really improved over the last two years and now in his junior year is doing all of his work without any prodding or help from me. He still takes more time, but is doing well. He is also making friends and participating in class much more. Thanks CAHS

Classical Academy High School does it right. Keeps parents involved with their child and keeps teachers involved with their students. No one is a number and no one falls through the cracks. Each student is shown a positive environment that not encourages them to do their best work but enables them to be challenged continually. Each students strengths and weaknesses are addressed in a very real way which means they are heard and acknowledged which means they are engaged! I can't say enough about this wonderful school that has taken my daughter from settling for C's to taking AP courses and achieving A's and B's. Classical Academy is what all schools should be like. It is wonderful to have teachers who love to teach and their enthusiasm is bringing out the best in each child. Way to go Classical! Sincerely appreciating you! Mrs. Maria Fitzgerald

The Classical Academy High School has been a welcome educational home for our teen. The caring teachers enjoy teaching the teens with creative ideas that help in the learning process. I have had a quiet teen and an outgoing teen attend the school and each found friendly peers and staff that accepted them and encouraged growth and maturity. When my teens have struggled in some classes the teachers were available every Monday morning to review concepts. Sports and school spirit days have helped students to grow as a family. My teens look forward to dressing up and cheering for the sport team that was competing. Weekly newsletter keep parents and students updated on academic as well as sports schedules. Recently I have had problems with one of my teens and the staff bent over backwards to encourage our teen and family. This high school truly cares about the students and families they are serving. You can feel this family spirit on campus as well is on the sports field. Our teens enjoy going to school everyday and because of this spirit they have encouraged many friends to attend. I can't think of a better school in the area.

CAHS is an excellent charter school with top quality teachers who really care about their students. Having at home, online, and on campus programs enables students to learn in the setting which is best for them. The student culture emphasizing respecting and supporting one another, and there's very little bullying, if any. CAHS is large enough to offer a good selection of classes and small enough to ensure small class sizes and that students are well attended to. CAHS is part of The Classical Academies schools, all of which encourage significant parent involvement, which makes these schools true gems!

This school is amazing! The teachers are passionate and work daily to make an impact in their student's lives and instill a passion for learning. The kids are caring and compassionate towards one another. They include those who may be different than themselves and treat them with respect. Kids feel safe and loved by their peers and staff at this school. The creative programs this school offers allows students to flourish in the areas they are strong in. The school offers Photography, Drama, Musical Theater, Visual Arts, Multiple Languages, and much more. The academic programs are stellar. Teachers are available for students to work with them one to one if necessary. Class sizes are kept smaller so that students have more access to teachers during class time and classes are scheduled in order to give students more time each day in class to absorb the subject content. The administration has a positive attitude and is approachable, as well as very available for parents and students. This school is an example of what can happen when you have good administrators, involved parents, and exceptional teachers who care about their students success. We love Classical Academy HS!

When my daughter was preparing to move back to California from France, I helped her research high schools for her son by visiting many schools in our area. She chose Classical Academy High School because it offered the best possible transition for our grandson's first experience with in an American School. The principal and staff are supportive and encouraging while maintaining high academic standards. After the stress of the demanding and rigorous French educational system, our grandson is thriving in the supportive Classical Academy atmosphere. With 600 students, the principal and his team know each student, and each one is important and valued. The campus is safe and friendly, and our grandson gets up early and looks forward to his school day. Teachers are available if students need extra help, and tutoring is available every Monday. Community service hours and parent participation are encouraged, and flexible access makes participation possible for every parent and student. The school has purchased an existing building nearby and is in the process of renovating it to increase classroom space. My family highly recommends Classical Academy High School.

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.
