Fun and Diverse school . I am a student that is currently enrolled and I have to say this school is actually fun to be in one of my classes is comp. app rop and I have got to say it is really helpful, they are teaching us how to write in proper formats for when in college or when your applying for a job the teacher is also helpful if you mess up on something and you fall behind all you have to do is notify him and he helps you correct it and teaches you what you did wrong and how to avoid the making the mistake again.

San Benito High School has a one of kind feeling. To be a Baler is unique and the kids and staff seem to love that fact. My two kids got a great education and were able to get into great colleges! My oldest child is doing very well in college and have one starting. I am impressed with the amount of AP level courses, the clean and safe campus, not to mention the open communication from the school administration. My kids loved their principal. She is hands on and love her students. Awesome passion.

I am a former teacher at SBHS and unfortunately I have to concur with the previous reviewer that it is a "below average school in every sense of the phrase." Administrators (especially the HR director and Curriculum Director) do not seem to have genuine concern for the academic development of the students--only the development of their own resumes and self-interest. Students are grossly underprepared in almost every subject and those who are at grade level are quickly falling behind due to the lack of rigor in classes. Teachers cannot make classes challenging because the board has adopted a "no-fail" policy that students are aware of--if more than 15% of students in a class are failing, the teacher is called in to explain for themselves. Students know that grades will be inflated and seem unmotivated to challenge themselves. Teacher reviews are ridiculously unhelpful. Administrators are not interested in helping new teachers get better, but in having an extremely high turnover as they "non-reelect"(layoff) almost all new teachers after 2 years. As a result, the staff is getting older and new ideas are not getting in. In short, I would NEVER send my kid here.

SBHS is a below average school in every sence of the phrase. It is overcrowded and underfunded, with sub-par teachers and sub-sub-par administration. If you have any other option, I urge you to give your children a better education. They will be shockingly unprepared for college after four years in fifty year old classrooms with 39 other students and one overwhelmed, underpaid teacher. Speaking as someone who grew up in Hollister and then moved out and moved on to go to college, get married, start a family, and have a career, I can tell you...this school is a GIANT barrier to a successful future.

I wonder if you guys have English classes for foreign ESL or any better for me to learn to speak and write in English live in hollister.

ZERO STARS!!! It's concerning that when you go in to talk to the office staff that they immediately come off with an arrogant, ignorant, rude and disrespectful attitude towards a parent. How are they treating your children??? I removed my A student from San Benito High School to attend a school with a more advanced and challenging curriculum. This was my child's first year at SBHS and he was shocked at the extremely slow paced subjects, small minded teachers and lack of knowledge by his/her fellow students who are not even aware of current world events. SBHS is a large dysfunctional bubble. I am sure there are a few very qualified teachers, but we were not aware of them. A lot of Bad Apples, including the head Apple, Krystal spoiling the entire bunch!!!

They have a great water polo program. It is a safe, secure campus. The grounds are well maintained. My son enjoys his classes.

San Benito High School is an excellent high school and has many oppotunities for success. The school has continually improved in its API and AYP scores, and considering the mixed population and school size, does a tremendous job of reaching the students and reaching out to the community. I have four kids graduate from SBHS, and all are successful adults and have either graduated from college or attedning college.

I have grown up in this town my whole life and loved it but now that i attend the highschool i have been begging my parents to move. I used to be an a or b student and now i am struggling to get a c or d. to suceed at this school you need hours of extra help and to be able to teach yourself lessons. if you are considering putting your child in this school please reconsider, the classrooms are over crowded enough. if your child is not used to violence this school would also not be right for them because there was about six fights in the first semster. this school is ti focused on just keeping their students healthy and cant begin to worry about their learning experience.

Poor communication. Administration is not on top of returning phone calls. It is very hard to resolve any issues in a timely manner. Only a small handfull of good teachers. Independent Studies is the way to go if you plan on attending SBHS. They are all caring teachers that respect the students and want to see them succeed. It is a great program.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 18, 2008

This school is stuck in a forgotten era. They have made great strides as far as providing an alternative educational environment, but that is at risk. Their Independent Study Program is one of the most rigorous in the area and will, more than likely, be discontinued with the upcoming retirement of the Director of Student Services. What a shame that the current district administration doesn't see the value of saving these students from dropping out.

i have to say, i've been blessed with great teachers all four of my years here, but the actual way the school was run didn't seem all that great to me. Now, though, Ms. Lamento (pardon if i misspell it) is doing wonders. She always seems to have a smile on here face, and is generally approachable. Thank you Ms. L for making my Senior year so enjoyable ^^!

I have a senior at SBHS and have to say that this school has made some major strides this year. The students seem more respectful. The teachers are incredibly supportive and all have a positive attitude. The administration is strong and stresses respect and academic achievement. The athletics department is one of the best in the tricounty area. The school is huge and spread out but has a strong security department that looks out for the kids. The counseling is there for the students 100%. All administrators and other staff return phone calls and it seems like they all genuinely care the students. The student body is diverse but it seems like every one gets along. School spirit has increased immensely over the last couple of years. I would recommend this school over any charter or private school. Keep up the good work SBHS!

Im am now a new freshman at sbhs.... I like this school alot mostly because even though there is alot of people here (and some people say its a zoo all the time) it gets you prepared on how to deal with alot of people you dont perticulary like and most of them you dont know very well... and to me that is very important. also the school offers many oppertunitys for the middle schollers to start getting involved and getting comfortable with all the many students and facilty members. and even though the school focus alot on sports that can be a good thing because this community isnt the wealthyist and if a student is say good in cross country like me but their parents are poor and they cant afford to go to collage they can get a tootur for free! and get a scollarship to a good collage.

Too big. Students disrespectful. Very tight security. Poor communication. Teachers caring, but no support from admin. Athletics a higher priority than academics. But - it's the only game in town.

i think this is a great school because they have many extra curricular activities. they have many awesome and fun classes

There is no communication or assistance, even when it is requested by both the parents and student. There are some good teachers who really care but many more who [are] totally disengaged. Unfortunately, this is a one horse town with no options/competition and the administration seems to have no intention of improving things.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 3, 2007

Administration is terrible. Parents have to fight for their child. Leave a message for consul or, principal and/or teacher lucky to get a call back. My youngest child was failing and no help for success. As far as my oldest some good teachers but more bad than good if you need help in a subject good luck most teachers tell you to pay more attention in class and don't want to help the child understand. Some teachers just collect a paycheck and don't care if the students succeed or not

I am currently a high school senior here @ San benito high School. Over the years I have noticed the same problem with many other schools across California. There are too many students per teacher. Last summer there were over 40 students in my 1 teacher math class. It's very difficult to learn any subject with so many students in the classs. With the summer's heat well over 80, no cooling system, and over 40 bodies producing heat the classroom was often unbareable. There are teachers who care about the students, yet most of them have their favorites. The food, lockerrooms and restrooms need work.

San Benito High School is a large school and I feel the size of the school can be a determint to learning and teaching.

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.
