I graduated from CVHS in 2012 (I now attend USC) and I can honestly say I LOVE this school with all my heart. The academics are very rigorous. The teachers are caring and helpful...many of them actually graduated from CV and returned to teach because they loved it so much. To those parents who don't think CV is amazing: you've probably taught your children to be spoiled and expect everything handed to them. CVHS really teaches students to take the initiative when it comes to their learning. If you need help then you have to ask for it and it will always be given. In the real world nobody goes around asking everyone if they're okay. People need to take personal responsibility for their own well-being as well as their own learning. CVHS really instills this value in their students. (And clearly the person who said CV only has good test scores because a handful of Asians bring up the average obviously isn't very educated. A few outliers in a school of 3000 students can't change the average scores very much. Also, I know first hand that students of all backgrounds can be very good at academics and not so good at academics. Broad statements like the one below are foolish.)

I attended CV from 2000-2004. CV is a close-knit community High School. It's fairly easy to make friends compared to larger High schools because most of these kids have been going to school together for years now. There's only one Middle school in La Crescenta too. A fair amount of families involved in Hollywood and JPL (NASA) also attend this school.

Crescenta Valley High School is from grades 9-12, you guys should fix that. Oh and this is an amazing school and I've only been her for a year!


Posted September 28, 2010

I had two kids graduate CV in the last couple of years, when it was time to have my third child enter high school, I pulled him and sent him to private school. This school has almost 3,000 students-very crowded and hard to keep track of every student and plenty of expensive drugs to go around. There are teachers that care and are excellent like Mr Smily and teachers that should be fired! Test scores are very high from a handful of asian students which bring up the average and make the school appear better than it truly is. If your child is motivated and works hard to find the resources they are there. If your child is an average student, this school does nothing to improve that, despite parents involvement. I'm not happy about paying for private school but I can see a big difference between CV and private school

This school really does have everything that you need in a high school. It has amazing teachers that actually care about the students and teach them very well. It also has many activities to participate in and is very nice.

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.
