Fallbrook high is what you are willing to put in to the school and classes. I had 3 kids attend Fbk High and 3 different experiences. If they choose to get involved and they can excel at Fallbrook. The teaches and staff at the upper level are great. The kids that participate in track, drama and other activities have been awesome. If you and your child choose to slack off, FBK will not stop you from failing. Here, it is up to the parent and the child to excel.

as a parent i notice my son was having difficulties trying to transition from a school like great oak high school. Fallbrook High School has urged him to hate school due to the lack of teaching organization, and too many "cholos" Both I and my Son are fet up with this school and we are looking for a transfer to GOHS (great oak high school.)

Wow, in searching for parent reviews of Potter Junior High, I found this, read many of the reviews and was sadly delighted to see so many with my same ill-regards to the school. My daughter is smart, does very well in school, but is completing high school online. She loves her "virtual" school and is gaining so much more there. FHS teachers, with the exception of maybe 2 or 3, lack any passion for what they do and forgot what their real purpose there is - to teach! My daughter was have a lot of health challenges in 10th and 11th grade and the school failed her miserably. They treated her like she was a bad, uninterested, lazy (teachers exact words) student. They were not flexible in her efforts to make up missed work. I could go on and on and on and on some more. the district needs to wake and take control of the schools in the district. FYI, a friend of mine sent her son back east to live with her brother for a good education and he excelled; she did this because of his terrible experience at FHS. We are a family who will soon be leaving the district.

So many tenured teachers who are passing time till retirement. I wish they would just retire and let our children get educated. Some of them really just hate children, not sure how they got into this line of business.

Fallbrook High is a horrible school. I removed my child from there when I saw that she was not getting a good education and that the administration seemed to only care about students who are athletic or in AP classes. Taking my child out of Fallbrook High School was the best decision I ever made. She is now in a new school and her self esteem has improved dramatically. Administration (particularly Mr. Vice Principal and Principal) you need to start paying more attention to your "average learners" and stop being so consumed by your AP students (who learn dispite your efforts) and athletes. Also, it would be nice if you would expect all teachers to post grades online on regular basis (weekly) so parents can work with their child. Mr. Vice principal stop blaming kids missing school for necessary doctor appointmenrts for cuts in funding (article from Fallbrook Village News).. Maybe you neeed to stop and look at how you your lack of support for "average" students is influencing budget cuts as well. The day I removed my student I saw that several students were disenrolling for similar reasons. Look internally not externally!!!

I have 2 children who attend Fallbrook High. My child, who is in AP/ honors classes, has had an awesome education. The teachers have prepared him and he has received 5s on all AP exams. My other child has had teachers who I like and others that I am not too impressed with. The math program is questionable, however, Science and Language Arts are excellent. You cannot ask for better sports and extra curricular activities.. There is something for everyone. Field hockey is one of the best in San Diego County--if it's kept. The sports complex is amazing. Leadership, ASB is incredible. Madrigals and music program is very strong. Due to lack of money the band program is not very strong. Overall, I am pleased with Fallbrook High

this school has a wonderful academic program for their students


Posted June 24, 2009

Although the school has a lot of sports and activities, learning isn't the top priority. Many teachers at this school are just there because they have nothing better to do with their time. Almost every teacher does nothing but have students copy slideshows so students really have to teach themselves in order to pass tests. There is no dicipline and no respect on either end, teachers or students.

This school is fairly bad, you really dont have to put very much effort into graduating, and the cahsee is a joke. I moved here from a school with 500 kids, and i felt that i had a much better learning environment and i felt as though i was actually cared about. Here there is none of that some teachers are just so fed up with the disrespect that kids give them and i am to.

If your student is willing to make the most of what this school has to offer, it can be well worth it. Honors and AP courses are challenging and rewarding, not to mention the fact that they are often taught by the better teachers. A great array of sports, clubs, and extra-curriculars are available, providing opportunities for everyone. However, if your student does not choose to get involved with these activities and/or takes only college prep and below courses, the school, teachers, and experience are mediocre at best.taught by

I graduated from Fallbrook high and it was a great school and had wonderful teachers and the school environment was great. There are no bad teachers; they are tired with the education bureaucracy and no child left behind law. Parents expect too much from teacher but they do not realize that classes are overcrowded and teacher cannot assist the student on one on one basis. I have experience many new teacher that are eager to teach and after a couple years they burned down. Many of them have change careers. It is not easy being a teacher. One of the problems with the Fallbrook high school is that it has been over populate and it is time to build a new school.

We had 1 daughter graduate from FHS & will not be sending our younger daughter there. The teachers are awful. We came to Fallbrook because it wasn't like the rest of California & still like it here - but will be forced to move into a better school district.

I am a Junior here at Fallbrook High and this is my second year here. I think this is a great school. It offers a wide variety of courses and so far I have had only one teacher that I felt wasn't activly involved in their student's education. The honors programs are great and challenging and I encourage any parent to really encourage their students to be in the honors classes. They will get alot more out of highschool. The regular college prep classes are fun and the teachers care, but they arn't always challenging because they move slowly. The only thing I don't like about Fallbrook is the lack of parental involvement and how impersonal the school counselors are. But the college counselor is amazing and very helpful in the confusing process of getting into college and getting financial aid.

Do not allow your student to attend this school.The classes are chronically oversized. The admininstrators seem to be in the mindset of running a cattle farm rather than prepared to nurture the growing minds of our next generation. There is no lively discourse whatsoever.

This school is average in most ways. The facility is tired and worn out, but the academics are surprisingly good. We are fortunate to have a student taking all honors courses. He feels challenged and is learning well. The school is probably lower in stress and competition than some of the fancier schools. It seems very safe, like you would expect from a small town school. I do not know how it compares for students needing more assistance.

I think this school look good. It may have problems but all school have problems. I have a sophmore and he says its a fun school. It has many sports and extracurricular activities you can join. I think that parents need to get involved more. Help out the school in solving problems and stuff.

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.

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.

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.
