My daughter is in her senior year at San Pasqual. I could not be happier with SPHS! She has loved her teachers, done well in her classes, and made many friends. I have found the staff to be very responsive to our questions and needs, and the school is fun and safe for the students. I spent three years driving her there on an inter district transfer because I knew it was the best school in the district and she and I are both very happy with our choice.
The non-teaching staff is a joke Calls are not returned unless you complain to the district office. The online grade viewing does NOT work and staff refuses to give out the tech support phone number,referring you instead to "counselors" who tell you to click "help"
Typically overly large public SoCal High School. Teachers work hard but on mis guided things. Too much teacher PC attitudes, especially amoung the younger teachers.
I have had multiple children attend/graduate from San Pasqual High School. It's a decent school for a basic public education and will cover the needs of the majority of students. I have been very disappointed with the counseling staff. You are more likely to receive attention and good advice if you are a struggling student. High achieving students are put on a back burner -- even when they repeatedly seek out assistance, they find it difficult to make an appointment, are given misinformation, and the staff has procrastinated (and missed) important college deadlines. Teachers are generally okay. Test scores are mediocre, but improving. There is a general apathy among the administrators, which I find unacceptable. Overall, the school will provide an education, but if you have a high-achieving student and have the means, consider a private school.
My daughter is now half way through her junior year at San Pasqual High School. I have to say that her experience at San Pasqual has been wonderful for her. She has had some wonderful teachers whom have shown some genuine interest in her academics and abilities to learning. My daughter has taken some very challenging classes at San Pasqual and I think that with her willing to learn and her teachers desire for her to succeed she is doing just that. I have to admit I am an alumni of San Pasqual and so my opinions are a little on the biased side, but I did have my concerns about this school because of my experiences. I have to say learning has always come easy for my daughter so San Pasqual has been good for her, the real challenge will come when my son starts there in a couple of years.
It is important for parents to get information on the school and what is expected when your freshman starts high school. San Pasqual does that in the summer when signing up and during the middle of the school year when the counselors hold an informational meeting on requirements and resources for freshmen and freshman parents. I was impressed that they came to us with new information. The parents did not have to seek them out.
