This school is not at all good. All the asians hang in one corner, all the Hispanics in the other. There are no people who will want to be your friend. The counselors there, are never actually there, they're always at "meetings" . A certain math teacher expects students to know Algebra 2, and fails 50% of students. However, one thing about this school i love is Chemistry Honors program. The teacher is great and knowledgable, and students learn skills, they could actually use in real life. (ahem algrebra 2) The choir program is great, but all the asians refuse to be friends with diverse people. Same with show choir. That is all. =)

Amazing school. The spirit at MEHS is strong and encouraging and the arts program is unmatched. Mrs. Marshall is unbelievable with her dance kids and transforms habits. Ms. King teaches her kids to draw with their hearts. Mr. Rawdon is a magical in guiding the award winnin choir. Mr. Kevin Cato leads the MEHS Band with pride and changes the hearts of his students. Mr. Ronnie Cato is a father, friend, teacher, and just about everything to his Orchestra and without him, nothing would be possible. Amazing school with amazing people. Don't judge a people by the practicalities of their school; Mt. Eden High School will make you eat your words.

This school may look ghetto but it's not. Mt. Eden has a lot of school pride and the people probably have the most school pride then any other school. The murals are beautiful and they make due with what they have. I have not been bullied since I've been here and everyone is actually nice. If parents are worried about their child they shouldn't. Mt. Eden is safe and it all depends on where your child stands as a person. Badmitton has been undefeated and their football/basketball programs has been stepping it up. choir and Band are #1 in Norcal and most likely in the country. There are a lot of dedicated people. The art program is really good as well. if you haven't seen the murals by ap art, you need to check it out. before you judge the school by appearence, attend one of the events! I just the district gave more money and help give Mt. Eden more potential. I wouldn't want to attend any other school and I love Mt. Eden! GO MONARCHS! I love this school so much i bleed blue and gold!

Mt. Eden High School may not be the best looking school there but i have been attending there for 2 years and the teachers give you major support. all thought there may be a gang problem there the only thing you can do to be safe is just not hang out with the wrong kind of people and dont start something you cant finish. As long as you treat people with respect they will treat you with respect back. The bullying is not bad at all everyone is nice and not one time hav i been bullied. There is girls there that dont like me but after all who cares im there to learn!

This school is garbage. The students there will treat you like trash no matter what. Don't think they'll be nice. They can be nice at first, but they'll backstab you in the end, and that is unacceptable. I have been bullied every single day during my high school years, and because of that, this school deserves only 1 star. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. ATTEND ELSEWHERE!

The CCS committee at Mt. Eden has been there for over four years, we During these four years they haven't earned anything just to spend the money they not even have bylaws. We need to have new elections, we need to have people who really wants to help the community

Mt. Eden Staff need to get a little more active in the education of all students during the 2011-2012 school year. There needs to be a website for the school. My daughter attended MLK Middle and every staff was so welcoming, supportive and enjoyed their job. We loved the Middle school experience and the great involvement of the lovely MLK staff. KUDOS to MRS. SANTOS!!! The principal at the MLK was awesome and Mrs Santos was just supportive of everything on the campus. I don't see this at Mt. Eden HS. Their seems to be a I don't care mood that is unacceptable. Meeting are always unorganized, cancelled or just don't happen. This year, I will make sure that things happen because it will be reported to the HUSD school district and Alameda county Office of Education immediately..I'm tired and hate to do this, but it's my child and other''s education at jeopardy. No more, no more! Things need to really change at Mt. Eden big time. Change will happen for the 2011-2012 school year and I promise that.

Mt. Eden High School has experienced a difficult transition in the past 3 years with new administrators and now 3 principals. The District must hire a principal who is willing to embrace the diversity of the school and the community. Great leadership means great results. Somewhat disappointed with academics - lack of teachers/students motivation it is not too late to unite and stop the division between student groups/parents/teachers. We are all in it together and the reputation of the school affects us all.

The food is not so good. They do not let us use the feilds in the back of the school before at lunch or after school, only in P.E. And some of the teachers aren't that good.but most are really good.so yea I think it an average high school with fights and stuff.

It easy to blame the teachers as to why Mt.Eden is a bad school. Parents need to keep in mind that class are surpassing class size, funding is decreasing and yet teachers are expected to produce brilliant students? Of course teachers are stressed, their lessons can't even begin to deal with real issues students face. As a former students I can say yes, there were bad moments but I was pushed by my teachers to do well. This year I will be graduating from a 4-yr university and applying to schools for a masters program. At Mt.Eden I was not the top of my class and received straight A's. Its a students choice to want to go to class and do hw. I believe my parents were a major factor to my academic success. Parents need to fight the state to change the schools, not point fingers at the teachers.

many people believe that Mt. Eden is not a very good school. Yet, my four years attending this school I I enjoyed every single day. I recieved a wonderful education from teachers who pushed me to the limit, and broadened my knowledge. Yes, there are teachers who are not very good, but there are a lot who are. If your child wants to challenge him or herself, let them. There are many teachers here that want to see their students succeed, and commit themselves to doing so. Many teachers there will forever be appreciated from me.

Both my son and daughter were exposed to many things at this school such as gangs, drugs, and bullying. The teachers could care less and parents are not involved. I became so distant to my teenage kids that I was worried they wouldn't graduate. This school has a lot of bad influences and not enough role models. The district needs to put more effort in these kids academicly so that they have a future to look forward. I am currently not happy with their system.

I am a parent of a student who recently graduated from Mt. Eden High School . To parents of students attending this school, please watch your child. There are a lot of staff in this school who care less about the education of students. I am not sure what goes on in this school, but sometimes as a parent I felt so lost and my child too. I had to follow all of my childs class from his freshman year to senior year. I am so happy he will no longer be apart of this school. I really feel that the public school is not improve enough and that students are getting lost in the system if parents don't step up and follow their child until graduation. Mt. Eden HS needs lots of improvements when it comes to the educational success of our students. Parent of a 2008 graduate

I really agree with this parent. First of all, its the child's choice whether or not they want to fail or not. I've just got accepted to a UC and there are teachers who arent very good but there are other teachers who are good. You have to deal with it. I dealed with it and look where I am.

If your child is focused, this is a great school. The teachers genuinely care about their students. But there are exceptions including counselors. Keep in touch via email, phone calls and conferences with your student's teachers and counselor. Check your kids attendance bimonthly. There is no truancy plan for cuts , except after 6 unexcused absences the student loses 1 credit.

Mt. Eden has an excellent choir program! These students have real talent that is proven with all of the awards that they win throughout the year. The choir director Ken Rawden is a dedicated teacher who demands excellence. Listening to this choir over the years has been an amazing experience. My child is entering her 3rd year and I can't wait to see this years play of Guys and Dolls. The parent involvement could be better but what we have is awsome. If you get a chance visit the Friends of the Choir web page at mtedenchoirs.org.

Mt. Eden is a wonderful school. After leaving here student get into wide assortment of school such as UCLA, UC Berkeley, Stanford. They have many program for all types of student interest such as ceramics, chior, journalism. They have AP and honors class so student get perpared for college earlier and make the transition smoother. Mr. Davini the school principal is a kind man who gets involved in all aspects of the school. The parent involment is not as high as it could be but some parents fight for more than themselves. Mt. Eden currently has a ranking coed badminton team (in NCS) and boys tennis team (in HALL). They have other teams like cheer, golf, swim, etc.

The quality of education is there if students try for it, as there are a numerous amount of AP, Hoors, and electives. Yet may students aren't meeting their potential for a variety of reasons not totally in the school's control, but the school itself has many opportunities for students, parents, and the commuity to foster growth.

The Mt. Eden Student Government and most of its administration are doing their best to encourage students to do well on the standardized tests. We do not want to be taken over by the state. Many of our teachers are excellent and well-connected to the students, but money is our biggest problem.
