This school has ups and downs. Its one of the better public schools in the city of hayward when it comes to the testing scores. But honestly as a ex student I must warn others that this school has a saftey issue. The schools is dangerous for students becasue of other students. I would suggest private school if possible. But i will say some of the teachers are very good, but they are overstreesed and it shows.
My family had the misfortunate of living within the Hayward High School district, which meant since my son could not afford private school for his 3 sons, they attended Hayward High. Our experience w/the elementary school, East Ave. was close to excellent. Middle school - a waste of time, as is Hayward High. Faculty involvment, concern, attitude, (with exception of 1 or 2 office staff) starting at the highest level exceedingly poor! Students passed from one grade to the next, without gaining knowledge, skills to suceed in upper grades/future endeavors. Refusal of adminstrators to address quality of academics offered;safety,discipline issues;neighborhood problems resulting from students off campus during school hours,ignored,dismissed by school faculty,especially at the principal/vp level! Administrators found to be self serving! This school is a blight on our community and should be closed! Students leaving here are not prepared to be an asset to the community in which live.
In my opinion, this school is poor in education and academic programs. Through they try hard, their methods to bring their students up to standards is ineffective.
When I atteneded this school, teacher parent communication was non existent. Nobody really cared what was going on, or if the students needed help. All in all, it was ok.
This is our first year here, our student is a freshman. So far all of the staff have been very helpfull and informative.
