Fullerton Union High School has been a wonderful experience for our daughter. As a lover of theater, she was given great opportunities to hone her craft. Excelent staff and a beautiful campus.

Fullerton Union High School is a very diverse school. My daughter attended all four years. Our family has no regrets. The diversity comes from both the multicultured student body as well as the variety of classes and clubs offered. In addition to the Academy of the Arts, Culinary Academy, Agri-Sciences Academy, and the STEM Academy, Fullerton also offers great programs such as JROTC, AP/IB/Honors, Digital Art, Special Ed, ROP, and a great athletics program. The PTSA is compiled of dedicated parents who are caring and concerned about supporting Fullerton High School. Something for everyone! And did I mention that Fullerton's Speech and Debate Program is ranked among the top in the nation?

My two children both went to FUHS. One went through the AP/IB program all 4 years, the other choose not to continue after the sophomore year. Both did well academically and socially, were in involved in sports, went to dances, had friends and enjoyed a well rounded high school experience. They both graduated with honors and went on to college. My oldest earned two BS degrees, is working in her specialty field and living on her own. My youngest is finishing his Junior year of college and looking at Grad schools. For all the negatives that we've heard over the years about FUHS, we had a 'mostly' good experience...no school is perfect! Parents NEED to stay involved to know what is going on in their child's life.

I freaking love this school. It was such an awesome time and I feel so smart now.


Posted December 14, 2012

My daughter is a freshman and she is doing great. She's in honors English and Biology and they are definitely challenging her academically. She is involved in sports and she has found getting involved to be a smooth transition. I like that the demographics in the school is a true reflection to the community as a whole, not just a segregated bubble. Terrific school! Would recommend

This school is awesome. It offers well-rounded experiences to the students, and ignores none of the student population, unlike some other schools, like Troy.

Before I started high school I heard rumors about Fullerton being a bad school. Then I began my freshman year. I love this school. I am now a junior and love all my classes and teachers. People think that our AP/IB courses are "easier" just because they are Fullerton's AP/IB classes, but if they took a class, they would know they are just as challenging as Sunny Hills or Troys. Don't base your judgements about Fullerton on just what you hear from other people, I'm 100% perfectly glad and proud I attend Fullerton High School.

I am a student at Fullerton High school, and I disagree that the teachers don't help try to raise our test scores. They even wear tee- shirts to encourage students to raise them. IF they see students are failing in classes, some teachers ask the students what they could do to help raise his/her grades and are weilling to change the way they are teaching.

The faculty at Fullerton is awesome. And yes you need to take an interest in your children and they will respond. This is a very relaxed campus. My daughter loved how the teachers would always acknowledge the students in passing.

I did not like the way that the teachers dont take the time to work with each student and try to get them to get hire test scores

Fullerton Union High School offers a rich academic as well as having three Golden Bell Academies as part of its campus. Students are enthusiastic and spirited. Teachers are excellent and care about their subject matter and their individual students.

Looks like the API scores are in for 2009 and Fullerton improved to 945. Congrats to the hard working teachers and students for making such a giant leap. Looks like the second best improvement in OC!

Fullerton has provided my kids a great education. It offers a well rounded education that prepares both the average and gifted students well with many elective opportunities. It is a safe campus, and offers that hometown feel and history on this beautiful historic campus. There a plenty of high end after school acitivities, including a good sports program, speech and debate, culinary arts, and the performing arts programs.

I'm a student at FUHS and not exactly a straight A one at that. But I love my school and it's an privelage just to go here. Some don't take advantage or really understand how much it has to offer, especially the 5th in the State ranked Speech & Debate team. Being a Title 1 school with a currently standing 732 API (don't yet know the result of this year's CST scores), it's so exhilarating to be apart of the student population. The teachers here are REAL teachers and even with the budget cuts and bigger classes, I believe they try their hardest to make sure each student knows the course inside and out by the time they finish the class. With a little more school spirit, Fullerton High School would be the best school in California.

I have had two children go through Fullerton High School. If a student does not do well and take advantage of the many programs there, they have no one to blame but themselves. My children were in the IB program, speech and debate, sports, and choir. They had many excellent teachers. The counselors are very caring. My children applied to 7 excellent universities and got in to all of them. If you are willing to work hard, you get an excellent education at Fullerton. The students and families who do not care or value education likely get what they put into it: nothing. For those who work hard, Fullerton is a hidden jewel.

I think fullerton as a whole is a good school but acedemics wise there are better schools around...namely sunny hills and troy.... fullerton gives a better rounded education though because they have electives that are more fun and can actually do a student good in life. Sunny hills has no home economics classes in any way shape or form so fullerton has the advantage there and deffinatly is a better art school then any of the others in the district. So depending on what you are looking for in a school depends on whether u will love fullerton or not..... if you want to just do the acedemics and take ap ib courses to get in to college go to sunny hills but if u want a well rounded education where u are going to have a bit more fun and a lot less pressure to be perfect chose fullerton

Fullerton is one of the best schools in this district! The teachers are highly qualified and the students are diverse and eager to learn. The school also is unique in that it has a unique history and tradition. The honors program here is also top-notch! I've thoroughly enjoyed my education at Fullerton and would reccomend it to anyone.

Everyone there knows what they are doing. With a few new teachers, all of the academies and departments are running strong. The best thing about this school is its diversity - anybody can be in anything. Fullerton Union High School has sports, art, culinary, dance, theater, clubs, National Honor Society, choir, speech and debate, and many more things. They even have after school tutoring during the week! Kids have an opportunity to earn college credits for free because Fullerton Community College is across the street, and high school students can be in classes for free. Their ROP classes also allow kids who are interested in all kinds of jobs to get first-hand experience about their desired job before they have to worry about colleges and majors.

I loved the teachers...though there was some bad apples, on the whole they were excellent: they knew their subjects and wanted to teach them! I took so many AP and IB courses I was completly overwhelmed with the work load; however, I am glad because I am now well versed in all academic fields. Furthermore, the extracurricular activities were present and challenging. This school is magnificent.

I am a former student. I transferred in from the Midwest. The teachers were great, caring. They seems knowledgeable and very involved, not just waiting for the paycheck. I agree with another post, that the problem with the school is the students. It's not the problem of the teachers. It's the parents lack of involvement, of taking education seriously.

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.
