Bonita High School is a superb school, with nearly all aspects of school-life flourishing. Arts, sports, and most-importantly academics are all taken seriously there. It is currently a California distinguished school. The campus is a great size, not too large and classes are easy to find. If you are struggling in a subject, there are so many options of classes to fit your needs. Bonita has a fantastic Freshman CORE program, and an abundance of athletic options for every season with friendly coaches. The arts program is also one of the best I've ever heard of, with complex theatre arts classes and clubs, a fantastic array of bands, an abundance of art classes ( such as jewelry making, and one of the best choir programs in the nation. Bands have performed at the LA County Fair, and in many competitions (always winning awards). In short, this school absolutely covers the triple A (arts, acedemics, and athletics) and should definitely be a consideration for people looking for a successful high school life.

Great behind the wheel students. Most of Bonita High School students are very defensive. They look out for others.

If you have an over achiever child they will be treated much differently than if you have a child who struggles and/or has learning difficulties. Those with very high grades and good test scores are treated well, those who struggle are treated with distain and are sometimes humiliated by the teachers.

We have been very pleased with the Education 2 out of our 3 children have recieved at Bonita, the third will enter BHS in 2013. We are proud to say our oldest is graduating in 4 years at Berkeley with an Engineering degree. Her success in college stemmed from the support and the academic rigor during her years at Bonita. Thank you teachers, staff and Administrators.

Your kids are in danger at this horrible school. At this very moment, Bonita High School is being investigated by the California Department of Education for refusing to let parents participate in meetings regarding their children. The CDE is currently investigating violations of ELEVEN different federal and state laws. The special education teachers and school psychologists are incompetent - so are their general education teachers. At a meeting held at Bonita High School a month ago, it was discovered the their teachers are completely unaware of the No Child Left Behind Act. Run, don't walk from Bonita High School if you want your child to receive an education. They've harmed my child - don't let them to the same to yours. At Bonita High School, your child will be left behind.

Bonita High School is the cream of the crop. If you want your kids to have the best time in high school, and still learn a lot...make them go to Bonita. I had so much fun being involved in clubs sports and asb, it made me wish that high school was 6 years instead of 4! Most of the teachers are amazing and very helpful. They take their job very seriously and still make the classes fun and will joke around with the students. So basically the definition of amazing is Bonita High School!!

We have a handicapped son and we were very impressed with the special education teachers. They are supportive and really listen to the parent and the child. They really care and pushed my son just the right amount. When he would be enrolled in a class with the jocks they would immediately transfer him so he would get teased. We were so proud when he graduated with his class in 2008.

This school is amazing. It not only has teachers who care about their students and stay hours after school, come in early in the mornings, and spend their lunch periods to help students, but they also connect with them. The school is such a close knitted school. Teachers and students are friends and it's a very friendly environment. When I moved and had to come to this school, I was surprised and shocked at how nice everyone was. Not only that but they have the most amazing arts programs. Band has amazing shoes, Drama puts together great performances, and Art is displayed proudly. And that's just the students and teachers! There's also so much parent involvement that helps make this school that much better.

Our school is in the top 100 school listings for CA, and they speak the truth. I'm currently a student there and feel the teachers are deserving more credit to their teaching methods. The school does a lot for our students by pumping up rallies and giving goals for everyone at their own pace, that way they challenge each student within their level, not expecting a 2.0 student to be 3.0, but perhaps a 2.5. I just feel the school deserves the money especially because though the teachers are great, not all of our classrooms have a full set of books for each individual student! Nor does our school have any lockers, so students are forced to carry all their books and thus a higher chance at lost/stolen textbooks that are already in low quantity. So there are a lot of helpful ways Bonita High School could use the money wisely, and this is coming from the student! Cheers to all (:

Bonita has educated my 2 grandchildren well, and it has many excellent programs. The music program, is especially worth mention. I believe that Bonita cultivates the entire child in all areas, emphasizing educational growth and creativity. Bonita is excellent preparation for any college the graduates wish to attend.

Bonita High School is my alma mater and my children attended the school. The school has a fair and secure atmosphere, which helps student grow intellectually and socially. The school also encourages the natural creativeness of the students. Bonita High School's administration and faculty enable each student to flourish in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. Students at Bonita receive the education they deserve, which will benefit them for years to come.

Bonita is the worst when your child needs extras. They are very money oriented. Have you ever seen a flier mailed to homes advertising for enrollment in a public school? Bonita did!! Teachers are rude and never disciplined for their actions. They are their to support their students and instead criticize and demean them. Stay away!!!

Did you know that Bonita also has special education classes too? My child is Down Syndrome and has attended Bonita for two years. Mrs. Dill, the teacher, is awesome and her staff incredible. The students on campus are a reflection of their parents and their community. The have taken out class in under the Buddy system and done wonders. I'm so grateful for all those students who spend their time in class with my son modeling outstanding citizenship. Thank you Bonita High!

I am aBHS graduate. I was in the CORE program it prepared me for college. The same goes for the amazing AP classes that I began taking my sophmore year! The emphasise on education is great at Bonita. The teachers are careing and helpful. The campus is the perfect size, and the sports are terrific. And the fact that almost every top athlete is also a top student is great. And together with being in the close-knit community of La Verne, Bonita is a great school.

I think this is a great school and I have a freshman attending this year. The only issue I noticed that is probably common with most High Schools is that the administration is not strict enough on school bullies and allow some kids to engage in disruptive or bullying behavior even though they claim a zero toleration policy.

Bonita is an excellent school and provides many opportunities for students to excel in not only school but in life. It offers a program called Accelerated CORE to freshman who rank in the top 100 in their class. The program ties real life assignments which require students to get a feel for the work force by meeting deadlines and learning to use technology as well as intellect. The school offers many Advanced Placement classes which allow students to start their college education during their sophomore year until they graduate. The teachers and staff will go out of their way to help anyone. Bonita has an excellent atmosphere and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to get a real education.

Bonita is a wonderful school that is getting better every day! My son graduated from this school in 2004 and I have been so impressed with how he has grown and support he has received from the faculty and teachers. The staff go the extra mile for students. I took him out of a private christian school and am so glad I did. He received a better quality education in a safe, challenging environment. La Verne is a beautiful, family friendly city and the school reflects this attitude.
