This is my first year as Counselor at Cabrillo. I LOVE it! The counseling team and administration is committed to student success. Our students are wonderful people. My daughter goes to another LB High School, and she would love to attend here because of our school climate. Jaguar Pride! Counselor Clarke

This school is horrible with a high lack of academic programs, counselors who care, and all of what a good school should have. I went to this school for one semester and could not tolerate it no longer so i transferred to poly where the counselor actually *meets* with their students in their request to change their classes and guidance. Cabrillo is the worst school in long beach in my opinion.

The campus is huge and it is gorgeous. The school offers many clubs and supportive help. I am a freshmen in this school and I take one AP class, in golf, and do 7 hours of community service a week which could be really demanding but we have AP cafe once a month and tutorial once a week. I constantly get tired of people that thinks I am dumb just because I go to this school. I think that are school is improving and unique. Go Jaguars!

It's so frustrating that some teachers won't post to the internet site 'school loop'. I have been told by parents at other schools that this is required. It is so frustrating also not to recieve phone calls returned etc. no follow through on parent's concerns. Attendence is not like at Poly where all absences were followed up and the parent contacted. Nobody seems to care at Cabrillo.

Cabrillo High School continues to make academic progress, in spite of its protrayal as a bad school in the media and in the eyes of some members of the public. It has fully staffed English and Math Departments, has implemented a rigorous Professional Learning Community structure, and uses computer based asessments to rigorously link classroom instruction to the California academic content standards. There is a thorough extracurricular program for after school, and tutorial is available daily, as well. Even the High School Exit Exam scores and high school graduation rates continue to improve. Cabrillo's image will probably always lack behind Long Beach Milliken, Poly, and Wilson. But, compared with other schools in predominantly working classs and poor communities, its improvement and progress are stellar.

It is a great school including all what the parents can wish for their children for their future..it is really the best school in long beach.

Cabrillo High School has embarked on a mission to improve the quality of education that all students receive. There is a viable after school enrichment program, along with music, sports, art, and other classes for students. Discipline is improving. Tardiness is not tolerated. Parent involvement is improving, yet has a way to go to be what it should be in a school in a historically underserved community.

well what i think is that this school is pretty good, but what needs to be ended is the school violence and racial tension. I go to Cabrillo High and I like it, academic programs i am not so familiar with but i'm very sure their good. Music, art and sports in this school are great, you can choose from lots of different sports, instruments and there is also dance classes. Parent involvement has increased since the start of the year 2005, which is very good to help keep students on track, well this was only a small description of the great things at cabrillo, and remember, the school is new so its a very nice school...

This school is an exciting and new environment on the west side of Long Beach. The atmoshere is more of college campus. Culture Diversity is prominant in the school setting. Mr. Mell Collins the pricipal places acedemics as a priority. All in all I would say that due to the age of the school. 6 years, and counting that it is becoming the school of choice for Long Beach students. With a little more assistance from the community and parents I beleive that Cabrillo will be the distiguished school of Long Beach in the near furture.

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.
