Cabrillo has had the Air Force JROTC for a little over two years. The instructors are not able to agree on which door to walk the students through let alone what they will teach them on a day to day basis or who will get to wear which "special" green uniform. If a student has a high ranking military parent, THAT child will get the special treatment, never mind whether or not he or she can actually offer anything to the program on his or her own. Equipment has been stolen from the room while these instructors hold the watching students up to be "outstanding" examples. The core values that should be taught are only words; in actuality it's who you know, step on the little people and do the best you can for yourself. That's what the lt. colonel has taught by example and the msgt. has only proven that screaming in the faces of adolescents does no good whatsoever.

My daughter has just begun her fourth year at Cabrillo. This school is known for it's aquarium, water polo and musical programs. The Madrigals get a lot of money for some unknown reason. There are several sports programs but not much money directed there. Excellent track, tennis and water polo (both girls and boys) and you'll hear something good about ladies golf! Lompoc High wipes the floor with the Cabrillo team at nearly every annual competition. My kid has done theater and Air Force JROTC. As in most schools, some of the teachers at Cabrillo are outstanding; while others are a severe waste of space. Same for parents. They are all people. What it comes down to is if you want a Great School then be involved and aware of what your child is doing. Ask questions. Volunteer.

The school campus is in terrible condition, paint is peeling, blinds in the windows are broken, the landscape is awful, dirt and weeds. Teachers have walked out. Students have been bullied by coaches.

My daughter started attending Cabrillo High School after we moved here in November of this school year. She is in her freshman year and in a special education class and her teacher is also the department chair person. She has had a wonderful experience there and has truly enjoyed the Drama department that they have at Cabrillo. The drama department puts on school musicals etc that are truly 'professional' in their appearence. I have nothing but praise for the teachers and staff at Cabrillo High School.

Cabrillo High School offers a wide variety of academic courses and extracurricular activities. There are many sports, musical groups, and clubs for the students to participate in. They offer multiple AP courses and just added an AP Music Theory course. The cross-country team is excellent, the band performs at multiple festivals, and the teachers are caring and dedicated. There seems to be a lot of turnover in administration and staff, though. This school provides a comprehensive education above that of the average public school.

Cabrillo is a great school for Arts, Music, Athletics, and Marean Biology. Cabrillo has a great art department, an award winning band and choir, a very athletic school and and a amazing aquarium known nation wide.

I just enrolled my son this year and the teachers are so good and attentive to my sons' needs.

The academic curriculum appears to be excellent, though the AP students are overworked and given too much homework. This is far beyond the need to prepare for college. The Physical Education Dept. needs to be overhauled. for Parent involvement is not sought out on a regular basis, unlike prior years at Cabrillo. The Drama/Choir Department is excellent for the students. The Principal caters to teachers, not students' needs.

Good academic program. There is an incredible variety of extra-curricular activities, including sports, music, theater and many clubs. Many 'air-force' families. The school culture is fairly conservative. Student leaders are ususally involved in sports.

My child had an outstanding experience at Cabrillo High School. The courses were challenging and the teachers really cared about the success of my daughter. She was in AP coursed primarily and did well. There were a couple teachers that were unusual in their teaching approach, but in time she learned to work with that. Overall, my daughter was well prepared for her transfer to a four year university.

I have had children Graduate and Children attending now, We have teachers with no experience teaching higher level Math and English classes! Most of our children are not ready for College after graduation. The students who excell end up teaching most of the classes during the school year! Nothing but mass confussion in that class!

My daughter graduated from Cabrillo High School in 2003. Since my husband is a pastor we have seen our share of different schools and feel that Cabrillo was by far the absolute best of any, hands down. My daughter started her school career there in 9th grade and has done very well. The teachers are very caring but also hard enough to make the student rely on himself for accomplishments. The academics speak for themselves. The teachers push for each student to strive for their very best. The music and drama departments are exceptional. There is always something for students to be involved in. Unfortunately my daughter wasn't involved in sports but I do know that athletics was a very integral part of this schools' program. Now on to one more item. This school has a requirement of every senior to do a 'Senior Project' which starts at the beginning of the year and culminates at the end of the year. Each student is required to pick something that they would like to do as a career or a hobby and work with a mentor, keep logs, write a research paper, and ultimately show it to the school and then a team of advisors who have knowledge of the field the student chose. To these advisors they must show knowledge of their work and the concepts that co-incide with their research papers in a 15-20 minute presentation. All of this goes toward their final English grade.When this all started I was a little apprehensive.How can theses students do their homework, take part in extracurricular activities, some do have jobs, etc. and do all of what was required of them? Well, it works! My daughter has a good paying summer job because of this experience and will be well prepared for college this fall and have a good job experience to add to her resume. I just want to thank all of the teachers and staff of Cabrillo for their hard work and caring attitude for each student that walks down their corridors. My daughter plans on becoming a High School Math and Drama teacher and return to Cabrillo to teach. I think that say it all about this great school.

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.
