When i first started at this school in two years ago, i was told by every one of my closest friends that it was a bad school and should get a transfer to Grove (which is actually closer to where i live). Out of all of my closest friends, only one of them was going to Rancho. It wasnt the best experience ever, but after a month i start liking the school. The teachers were great, most students were kind and accepting, and i was a part of the marching band. Since then, ive gotten my best friend to transfer to Ranch from GROVE and join the school's color guard. Now, im a junior with full on Vaquero pride. I seriously can not imagine being at a different school. Rancho has proven to amazing and I'm proud to say that I am a Vaquero to all of my friends who go to Grove or any other GGUSD school. I extremely reccomend Rancho if you want your student to succeed academically and learn in a healthy and supportive environment.

This school has showed me how well they care about my childrens education. The students here get along with the special education students. There's so much activities in this school, i don't regret sending my children in rancho (:

This school is nothing but lots of disrespectful students and staffs has trouble dealing with students who does not participate in class. All Students in classes are nothing but just talking and laughing at other students. Rancho Alamitos needs to improve. I would recommend other parents to have their children go to a different high school like Garden Grove High School or Pacifica High School

Rancho Alamitos has been a very bad school to be at and I agree with that comment below. My son has experienced bullying by one of his classmates and all they do to him is call him names and laugh. If you want your children to go to a actual high school which is better is Pacifica High School or Garden Grove High School.

Rancho Alamitos is a horrible school because of low test scores, teachers not educating student's that much, not many elective classes to choose, and students are rude.

Posted October 14, 2012

Rancho Alamitos has gotten a lot worse this year due to the lack of elective classes, students not being involved in education, low test scores, and teachers not educating students that much.

I love Rancho! When I currently entered the 9th grade I was told Rancho was a bad school, that I should transfer to Pacifica or Grove. I'm telling you everyone was wrong. Rancho is a great school. I have learned a lot in my classes. The administration truly cares for their student's education. I have enjoyed participating in the music programs and in a number of clubs and sports on campus. There is a lot of school pride in every teacher, staff and especially the students. I will miss Rancho when I graduate and will always be proud to be a Vaquero.

THIS SCHOOL IS A GOOD SCHOOL AND THE SCHOOL PRIDE IS AMAZING!! I ATTEND TO THIS SCHOOL RIGHT NOW AND ITS MY FIST YEAR. I WAS SURPRISED AT THE PRIDE THE STUDENTS SHOWED! VERY GOOD SCHOOL AND PROMISING TEACHERS.


Posted October 6, 2011

Great school, teachers care about you and are ALWAYS offering retakes to a test and help after or before school. Teachers always help you in class and are always trying to find great ideas to make the class fun and interesting. Do NOT try to transfer schools just because people say its a bad school because of test scores. Its a AWESOME school to be at so don't get fooled by what people say because test scores don't say everything.

Rancho when I was there it was fine. just when you sign up for sports watch out the coaches will pick favorites. When your not that favorite it seems that you can do nothing right. But overall my time there was fine. Liked a lot of my teachers. When I was there were some strict rules but as I said the school is OK.


Posted January 26, 2010

Rancho Alamitos High School (GGUSD) is the best school ever besides Newport Harbor High School (NMUSD). I went to Rancho Alamitos High School for almost two years and the school is the best thing ever!!!

I just wish the sports were a little more fair to all players not just the couches favorites.

Rancho has consistently been getting better every year for the past 3 - 4 years. I had a son there in 2001 and now have children there again There is a college going focus campus wide. The extra curricular programs are outstanding. I'm glad my children are at Rancho. They are getting a solid education in a very diverse student environment.

I love my teacher! I feel they really care about me and my success. I transfered from another school last year from a school where I didn't feel valued. The teachers and administration at Rancho are different. It feels like they are here to make a difference, not to earn a paycheck.

This school does not offer students enough elective courses to compete with other schools in the district, and they make false promises to students on what they can hope to accomplish there before graduation. Many of the teachers are rude and do not seem to care about teaching. This school does not even have a marching band! This just goes to show how uninspiring this school is.

This schools is good because it is very diverse. BUT the staff there can be pretty mean. There a little too strict at times. (You can't get lunch if you have no ID. etc.) Overall i like my teachers. They care and teach pretty good.

This school doesn't really care about students' education and they don't listen to what your child needs. The staff can be rude sometimes

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.
