Worst school ever! Went to this school all 4 years and each year became increasingly worse. The school's faculty is incompetent, lazy, and they do not put in an effort to make the school a more fun and enjoyable place. Instead they add more unnecessary rules that makes the students hate the school even more. You can count the amount of good teachers at this school with only one hand. Do not send your child to this school, or any other school in Hayward.

This is really a pretty decent high school. It's a normal, healthy, safe school. My kids attend here. We have not had any experiences with rampant drug problems, neither have we had or seen problems with violence. Our kids are very happy with their teachers, classes, and the whole school, and as parents, so are we. The prinicipal, vp's and faculty are all so friendly and helpful. Whenever I drop off or pick up the kids, the students I see are interacting in fun and healthy ways, with smiles. No complaints from us. Hayward High is a great school that flies under the radar. The district in general seems to run a pretty tight ship.

The school has its ups and downs, just like all schools. There are a lot of great teachers at this school that truly care for their students, and there are also a few that shouldn't be teaching there. Great AP classes and great honors courses. Great music program and a very dedicated music teacher. Ethnic studies is also offered at HHS and is a great social justice class that many high schools don't offer. As for the "problems", there are always fights and drug use at every high school. Hayward high school certainly isn't the extreme of this. People have a common misconception that Hayward is a riot school full of drug everywhere. The school can also use a make over, but the district is in charge of funding for that, not the school, and not the principle. Overall, an average high school with a uniquely ethnically diverse student demographic.

Went here and graduated in the top 3% of my class. Students in the regular classes are not challenged enough. I had to take Honors and AP classes to guarantee a decent education. In my senior year the school received new teachers (fresh Berkley grads) who dramatically increased the quality of education in the school. Unfortunately the student body was not used to being challenged, parents complained and these teachers were pink slipped out of the school; way to go Hayward High. Fights were regular, racial tensions between African Americans and Latinos was ever present and most people didn't care about the education they were receiving. I wouldn't describe this school as an environment that is conducive to scholastic achievement or even good memories. Avoid sending your children to public schools in Hayward. I recommend a good private school or homeschooling, letting them finish early and sending them to a good community college. By the time their friends are graduating high school, they can transfer to a good school like UC Berkeley.

My son finished HHS this year. The school seemed to be up and coming when he entered as a freshman. The block schedule allowed him time to really get to know his teachers and feel valuable on a huge campus. In addition to going to a "normal" 6 period schedule & less face time with the teachers. The district decided to "close" the campus. This is a joke because there are huge holes in the fencing, I see students at nearby fast foods regularly. Several student smoke weed and gamble on the back side of the school daily. There have been more fights since the lock down. In order to get in all the instructional minutes the day has been lengthened. The schools scores have dropped sharply! My other son is in middle school and I've chosen to take him out of the district.

Hayward High is a great school with plenty of opportunities for students who are looking for them. I have three students attending and one is graduating this year. All three are in the puente program and are doing very well. The counselors are very supportive and give plenty of information about universities and scholarships available to students. I have heard of troubles and fights at the school, but my kids have never been involved with any of them. If you're looking for trouble, I'm sure you will find it but you can also find opportunities and trouble free activities if you're interested. I have been very happy with Hayward High School despite what rating it has, I would highly recommend the school because of the teachers and counselors that are always ready to help.

The school lacks the money and programs compared to other schools in HUSD. The campus also feels dangerous and there are numerous fights every year. Hayward High school it the second lowest school based on CST Testing. Truly Sad. If I had the opportunity to leave I would in a heartbeat. The only thing a student has to look forward to at this school are programs like AVID, Puente and The annual Down Town Rally. Other than that the school is a huge disappointment.

I have one child who have graduated from HHS in 08 and one graduating this year. It is a great school and we have never had any problems there. If your child is looking for trouble they will find it just like in any High School. This school offers AP classes,along with all others. I would recomend this school to anyone who asks.

They have a great band and a very supportive Band teacher who wants to see the children excel in their musical skills but because of budget cuts the children may not be given the opportunities that await them at this time.

I am a hayward high student, and so far most of my classes has been great, most people who say that hayward high hasnt prepared them are wrong because they just probably took the wrong classes, but i think i am going to do good in college as long as i take challenging classes

I am a 2006 graduate and am now attending UC Berkeley. My transition from high school to my freshmen year was horrible. Hayward High does not prepare you at all.


Posted August 15, 2007

I have a child that will be starting her 3rd year at HH and it has been an awful 2 years. The counselors, Principle and Vice Princple do not seem to care about the education that the students are getting. The majority of teachers are non responsive when contacted to find out a students status. There are only a few teachers that actually care and sadly they teach the elective classes.

I graduated from Hayward as a scholar athlete 3 years ago. Its up to the student to succeed, the resources are there! if your child doesn't succeed the way you wish for: don't point your fingers at the faculty look at your child and his study habits. Again, I had a great 4 years and every student is capable of doing very very well as I and my close friends especially with the many extra curricular activities they have to offer.

As with any public school, Hayward High has its share of ups and downs. Having had a child just graduate from HHS, and one attending there this year, I have a pretty good sense of the school. I really like the diversity the school offers. There are many dedicated teachers. Most of the teachers are doing an excellent job, as is the administration and the rest of the staff. Parent involvement could be stronger. The district is struggling with poor management and as always, a lack of funds. This filters down to the schools, and as a result, programs have been cut, fundraising has become a priority, and many parents grumble because of what we do not have. Basically, if a student is to succeed in this school (or any school) he/she must have parent support. Hayward High is a good school. I recommend it highly.

My daughter is just finishing her freshman year at Hayward HS. It has been a rude awakening to the amount of neglect and apathy which exist in this school and the district as a whole.

If you stay vigilant and involved so that faculty and staff know you and your child you have a chance to have a good experience. As with any public school now exceptin the most affluent of districts, parent participation is what is going to get your child through successfully. I am continually inmpressed by the caring of most faculty but you must contact them indivudally.

HHS offers a good variety of classes and programs, particularly AP, AVID, and Puente. There are also other programs like Adewole. The band program is good too. A mindful parent can get a good education for their child here, but you do have to be viligant because of the teacher turn over. Overall, the school seems safe, but there are some slight gang issues. My children have had some awesome teachers at HHS and they went on to UCs, so it is possible to do well here. Among the 3 public high schools in Hayward, HHS, is the best one. Not much parent involvement however.

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.

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.
