I am a special need person and I went to Del Campo since 1992 and graduate since 1996. I used to be in special ed class when I was in Del Campo. This school is wonderful and the atmosphere in Del Campo is wonderful. The teachers always been wonderful to me.I'm an alumni and a former student. The special ed class is wonderful and it helps me a lot.I made lots of friends that I was popular in school. This school is wonderful to go to.

The Honors and AP classes were terrific preparation for my student's college studies. The teachers in most of those classes were outstanding! However, the regular classes don't seem that great with some teachers not having control of their classrooms! Kind of a ruckus! But otherwise, Del Campo is a good school! Your student will benefit

There are many changes happening here this year. The arts, academics, and sports are emphised. However, teachers are retiring after working here for several years: foods teacher=35 years, principal=31 years, biology=? but much loved teacher, spanish=?, ..However, there is the new blood teachers such as a history, english, mock trial and fantastic award winning journalish teacher that they are going to have to "pry out of the school", because he is sooo dedicated. His former students are famous: Ling sisters, and Alissa Milano on channel 10 news. I wrote a previous review, just wanted to mention this information for parents and students. If you are "on the fence" about attending this school chose it, you will do well, and be encouraged from the campus security people to counselors to your teachers. Actually I know of one teacher here and his 2 daughters attend. Also I know of a home schooled girl who attended p/t for enrichment. The dances are well chaparoned and very fun. The teachers don't hesitate to jump in and say" that's unappropriate", when necessary. Only we wish the guys would ask the girls to dance more, not wait till college...LOL

I attended Del Campo, and like many say, it has a strong focus on its sports rather than its other extra-currics. However, the teachers were all great, very kind, and most were seriously dedicated to teaching every student with the same intensity. It's a school that allows a good degree of freedom, but all that means is that if a child makes a mistake (and I made some in my attendance there) it doesn't mean the end of their lives or their career. The staff and teachers understand that a student does not equal his mistakes and care about them as individuals. Due to state budget cuts, a lot of the programs are suffering, but that doesn't make the staff there any less amazing than they already are. It may not be a rich school funded by millionaire parents who are extremely supportive of the school, but it is a school of independent students who learn to be self-supportive and discover what's important with the help of the teachers and their peers. I'm on my way to be a Biology Teacher myself, and I can only hope that I can meet and hopefully exceed the standards that I experienced at Del Campo High School.

My son spent his freshman year at a different school within the district but came to Del Campo for his sophomore year and he loves it. The teachers communicate with the parents and the parent participation is great.

My 16 year old has been there since her freshman year and not only has the staff been amazing but their ROTC program is top notch and has taught her so much more that any other school has. I am going to be so proud when my so attends there in three year!!

Del Campo high school may have some new staff that have yet to adjust, and with the highest mortality rate in the county it can be frightening to new students as well. The overal quality however is 1st class; Common givin teachers not only understand the students, but, also help them to learn. With encouraging lectures and equal respect, for a rare occassion students have bonded with teachers. This causes much higher test scores, much higher student participation, and a much higher air given to the school. I give Del Campo 5 stars as not only a seasoned student, but, also as a properly informed citizen.

DC is one of the SJUSD favorites for open enrollment. They have a strong booster club and really focus on athletics-perhaps to the detriment of academics for some of the jocks. The block program allows students to take more classes in their allotted four years, however, the drawback is that some students having difficulty with certain core subjects get behind the'power curve' and simply cannot catch up. I know of some students who had difficulty with advanced math classes, put much pressure upon them. DC has a reputation for being a 'social' environment, jocks are quite popular. Nice campus in a nice neighborhood but not known for having a diverse student body.

Wonderful and it is very pleasing when you are at or around the campus.

I love this school! Almost all of the teachers here are great teachers and really do care about how us student are doing. They don't just care about school, they also care about our life outside of education as well. This school has taught me so much! Every one at the school is so nice. You could just walk up to some one and start talking to them and they'll talk right on back.

Del Campo was one of two high schools I attended and definitly not the better of the two. Unless you are somehow involved in sports there is no chance that you will be recognized or funded for extracurricular activites. I know in the past ten years things have dramatically changed and the elective courses have most definitly taken a turn for the better, but that has more to do with the school distract than it does with the school. I was a drama buff and I admit the other high school I attended had an incredible drama department, but the theater should not have been in a makeshift calssroom and it should not now be in a cafeteria with a break down stage. If your passion is anything other than sports, don't expect much from Del Campo.

Wow! DC raised their API by 46 points, while some others in the schools went down. Great job! My child has never been a high achiever, but after just one year at DC she is taking honors classes. Thanks to the block system and the focus on college. Del Campo has changed her focus and study habits for the better.

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.
