First of all I thought this school was great. They have an after school detection program that for what ever reason the students are kept so that the school gets more money.I My daughter was kept after school one day and I called to know why no one could give me an answer I was transferred 4 time and no one could tell me why she had to stay after school. I work evenings and with the day light saving time at 5pm it is dark and they get out at 4:45 so my 14 year daughter has to walk home alone 18 blocks.

Terrible school. Students date some of the teachers right after graduation. The teachers hate their job. I attended and would never send my kids to this school.

Great teachers, horrible admin. College culture needs to be fostered. Teacher leaders need to be recognized and used to press a positive forward plan

Sent My nephew to this school when he was living in my house. I had specifically requested that his classes not be changes as he needed some stability in his life. 2 weeks into the year, all his classes get changed. I called his counselor and asked why I was not notified. We don't have time to tell the parents about what goes on at the school. I reminded her of our conversation and that she had noted it down in his record. Oh yea, was all she could say. Later when I was not getting any feedback on his attendance or progress in class I went to the school to ask about both. Within minutes of asking I was told he had missed about every third day for the semester and he now had several Saturday school days to make it up the missing time. My only question was why wasn't I told before he had missed several weeks of class and only after I went to the school and asked about it. This school may have many good programs going for it, but the Administration and front office leaves a lot to be desired! Trust be verify daily!

Before I begin, I would like to say that there are good kids & great teachers at this school. Unfortunately, there are too many bad apples at this school & they make it very difficult for the kids who want to learn. I feel for the true students who have to go to school in such a disorganized environment.

A lot of the students are good but I suggest watching the crowd your kid hangs out with.

The only school in the district with 2 pools and Surfimg PE class. New science labs. Students come from all over the district to take advantage of Mar Vista's ROTC program. Great Maritime Technology program to train students for Merchant Marine careers and Posiedon Academy for kids interested in oceanography & marine science

Mar Vista High is a wonderful place to attend school. A solid tolerance,a powerful presence of minorities, and a successful AP program has made of Mar Vista one of the most successful High Schools in the SUHSD district in the last year. The crowning of the class of 2006 as the best of the whole district, was just the initial phase to a long process that this school has and will perform in the short term future. Hail Mar Vista, hail Mar Vista, a school not scared of change, and where the students are a top priority.

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.
