Garden Grove HS. look at years the comments were written and the substance of the reports nothing specific on the eatlier years. All the Rah Rah is great , but we are talking about academics, students and teachers . Hopefully tenure rules will change and a better grade of teachers will replace those teachers at GG HS and other schools who are just there for a pay check...

I have had three children go through the Garden Grove High. I was disappointed every time with some of the teaching staff. Hearing my children talk about teachers on their cell phones during class, or learning more about the teachers personal lives then the actual subject. While each of my kids graduated I don't feel they were challenged enough. The AVID program was not worth my child's time.

The math department really needs to change their teachers around. So many students fail to pass their mathematics course. Also, their ASB really needs to be more diverse. It is based on popularity that these students are chosen to be within the group.

It is the oldest school in the district, it has hart and loyalty in its current students and its alumni. We just lost one of our star football players to a tragic accident on 9/11 on the football field. This would be a wonderful memorial to his spirit as a Garden Grove Argonaut

I graduated from Garden Grove High School twenty something years ago. My son graduated from GGHS last year and my daughter currently goes there. We recently lost one of our ARGONAUT family members. It is amazing what the young men and woman from GGHS can do when adversity hits. Our principal is an amazing lady and pushes our kids to be the best in and out of the classroom.

Although I graduated from this school....GGHS has proved to be such a dedicated school in which in almost every aspect of the education develops branches out into friendships...from the various clubs, school spirit and life in general, GGHS will always be a family. Even after the devastating loss of a fellow football player merely a few days ago, the school community pulled together and strived to become stronger as the days go on. Simply, GGHS is the best school that I love dearly and forever will... gghs.us

I was a student here and neither the teachers nor the principal showed any interest in helping me with my education, it's merely a saying of 'Just try harder,' to them

Great School. Highly Recommend!

Speaking as a student it is a good school. And belive me, I never thought I'd be saying that. Simply because school isn't for me. Regardless, however, it GGHS is full of caring teachers, understanding staff members if you're not rude, a principal that is firm but cool, and a great environment. If your child complains about the staff members or teachers, maybe it's not them, maybe it's just your child. That's usually the way it goes. I guess we tend to take things personally. I'd recommend this school out of all the other ones in GG.

Excellent high school, one of the best in Orange County. Super principal, diverse student body, lots of tradition and pride. Campus has football stadium, two gyms and 1500-seat auditorium. It's in a nice setting across from the regional library and Community Meeting Center.

This school is one of the best in the area. The extracurricular activities are in abundance and the students seem to try hard and actually look like they care to receive the education teachers 'try so hard' to put out.

Garden Grove High School is a really good school overall. That shcool have really good teacher. The staff at that school is really horrible.

The school staff are racist. First off, this is from my experience and are from my point of view. The staff members are truly uncaring and do not provide any help, but merely excuses. They lie and try to screw you over. Be careful...

If you want to provide your child with a good education, keep on looking. This school has low test scores and seemingly easy curriculum, which is probably why standardized test scores are low! a school where any sat score breaking 4 digits is considered astonishing, not many ap classes are offered, and the office staff is extremely rude and difficult, i highly recommend you don't send your child to this school. Also, my child and many of her peers are constantly complaining about how they are treated at school by these office staff members. Ask any child from that school, the office staff members constantly ignore the children, and the children are forced to wait for awhile until they get the attention they need. Seems to me our children are not first priority like they should be.

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.
