Preuss has a really good cause - to help first generation, low-income, minority students enter college. The school is diverse and the tens of busses that take students to and from school everyday all around San Diego county really does help the students and their families a lot. The teachers at Preuss are dedicated to their students and very encouraging. Looking back at Preuss from the point of view of an alumnus who is about to graduate from one of the top 5 liberal arts colleges in the nation, Preuss is definitely a great place to enroll and partake in. With that said, the one downfall to Preuss is that it has really strict regulations to go visit college campuses, which betrays its goals. In addition, the staff aren't always attentive to student and even teacher needs. So, although Preuss is not perfect, it is definitely a good place to enroll your child.

It helped me get to college and it is a great school that encourages low income students to follow their dream of getting to college. The students are amazing and they are one of the most hardworking that I know of. The school does not have a lot of money, and these students need it. Their main goal is to be successful and attend the college of their dreams, they just need a little help with the school budget and this would help out a lot! (:

The school is small. Everyone is together. We work as a unit. We are family.

I graduated from Preuss recently. It is the best school for students aiming to attend college and succeed. In my graduating class, my peers were accepted to universities such as Northwestern, Villanova, Stanford, Harvard, UC Berkeley, MIT, UCLA, UCSD, USD, Gonzaga, Redlands, and many more. Many younger students do not understand the true mission of Preuss because they lack the maturity. As an alumni, I can say that Preuss is a great school and helped me get to college.

I am a student here at preuss, and i ahve to say it's one of the worst attended school in the world. As you better know the school, you will know its really poor, the school is threatning to cancel buses w/ 11th and 12th graders. My GPA is 3.50(i'm proud) but it will get your childrn so stressful that your children will become emo adn be pissed off. Teachers are horrible and a

They have alot to work on as far as being persistant and honestly contacting parent on a child's performance..The teacher need to really wise up on students and really encourage students more and focus time with student to assist parents in direction that they have a sense of their goals.

Although the Preuss School creates an enviorment worthy of praise, it lacks the leniency of dress code and chastises its students when they try to express themselves creatively. I absolutely recieved a great education, which will inevitably benefit me when applying for a prestigious university in the future. Students attending Preuss will definitely be future leaders of our generation.

great school with great values, first of its kind. I dont know of any other School who's goal is to send the student to College.

This is a great school that allows us to accomplish our goals. The teachers are devoted to doing whatever possible to help us out. We pull all-nighters of doing homework and are pushed to our limit in education but in the end its all worth it because we know we will change the world one day.

Teachers and students are focused on the same direction and extremely supportive of one another. Definitely the place if your child wants to be challenged and has dreams to enter a good University prepared and ready to go. Facts: Preuss is a very safe place. Uniforms are mandatory. After school help is always available. Buses are offered throughout San Diego. Students who graduate from Preuss are very well rounded students in all aspects of academia and life also with a strong moral code. Since the school is made of students from all types of backgrounds, your child will be immersed in culture, language, and experiences which will provide an amazing insight into the world at large. Ultimately, Preuss is a model school created from admirable goals and has had great success in achieving them.

The Preuss School UCSD is a great school. I know that going to Preuss is preparing me to be sucessful in college. Even though our school years are longer and our days are long its a very good school. i [love] preuss.

I believe that The Preuss School has wonderful students, but the administration lacks compassion for this school and its students.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted October 14, 2006

In contrary to all the reviews posted, the Preuss School lacks a true college prep experience. Even though the school year is longer and the hours during the day are extended, the school lacks one key element to prepare high schoolers for college; a lack of time for independent study. Many of the AP classes are very lenient in grading which may not prepare studentsfor the academic rigors they may face in college. However, there are many plus sides for this school. Each class averages 25-27 students which is much better than most other high schools in the sd county.

This is a wonderful college prep school for kids who are low income and traditionally do not have access to a rigorous curriculum. The teachers are dedicated and extremely hard working.

For our demographics and what the charter for our school is, Preuss is a great school.

Posted January 22, 2005

The academic program isn't too rigorous, although the workload is quite extensive. Most parents aren't very involved due to their work schedule. Extracurricular activities are to a minimum, although most students excel at something and chase a dream that they're passionate about. Most students are also very well-rounded. The enviornment is probably not classified as liberal. However, there is a connection to UCSD that can prove to be useful.

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.

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.
