Both my children recently graduated from ERHS and were accepted to colleges of their choice with excellent scholarships. They were groomed to be leaders and passed all of their 6to 8 AP courses. I love the school. They have tons of sports and clubs to join. I'm excited that my youngest will be starting ERHS in 7th next year.

This school is GREAT! My sister used to attend this school and had a 5.0 GPA in 11th-12th grade and a 4.0 in 8th-10th grade. She graduated and was accepted into many colleges with many scholarships. I now attend the school and am in 10th grade. I have been there since 7th grade and have had great experiences since. All the teachers are very helpful and actually care about each student equally. There are always fun events happening in the school. Since im in the Gifted MAGNET program I know that AP and Honors classes are great in academics. There are almost no bullies and everyone is welcome. Every day you learn so much from the revolving 4 classes out of 8 each day. I extremely recommend this school if you want your child to have great academic and fun experiences that will help them later on in life.

I love this school! The academics, the students, the events, the clubs, the programs, the teachers, and the whole school itself is great. I took my two daughters out of Renarts because it was not academic at all, all the teachers were mean, the students were bullies, and overall it was terrible. I kept my son in Eagle Rock and he loved it so I put my daughters in there and they instantly made friends, had great grades, and enjoyed the rest of their time there. There are so many great things that the school has to offer. All I can say is terrific!

This school is large and intimidating. The teachers are great. Like with any school you have some that maybe should take some time away, but over all I have had good experiences. I think that MORE parents need to be involved. Stop complaining and show you mean business if you want changes to be made!!

Terrible school, don't let these LAUSD faculty & Teachers fool you when they talk the school up, it is a disaster there, Teachers are always absent, Classes are 30+ students, the system the have set up with their teachers teaching the middle schoolers & also the high schoolers seems to have them flustered and overworked. Currently looking for a charter school as a alternative or maybe a move out of the district.

This school has a highly commendable teaching staff and some very supportive administrators/counselors/coordinators especially for those students who are serious with their studies and academic goals. A large school comes with a broad range of kids with varying abilities, hence the mediocre test scores. Overall, they have managed to maintain standards in spite of challenging budget constraints.

Eagle Rock High School is now an International Baccaulaureate World Middle Years School Certified for 7-10. We were certified this past May, 2011. This means every student will be world/college ready students. Our gifted/highly gifted magnet program is now a 7-12th grade with class of 2014 being the first graduating class. We will apply for the IB Diploma program this year....we are well on our way to be the great school our community deserves!

Used to be a great school but LAUSD has really compromised it by ballooning the size in enrollment. Unbelievable in that Eagle Rock has over three thousand students in an area that doesn't carry as many students from the local elementary schools. The community needs to get more involved and begin to put more pressure on the administrators to let them know that we are stake holders too. Parent meetings should be held at later hours to accomodate them.

I went to this school for 6 years, attending both Jr. and Sr. High, and I had a good experience. I can't say the same for my colleagues in regular classes, but as long as your kids stay in the honors/AP classes then they'll be fine. Like all things in life you get what you put in and this school is no different. Tremendous faculty in teachers like Mr. Lord for Biology, Beaty for History, the list goes on if your child seeks them. If you want to go to a good college then be sure to talk to Mr. Williams early and often throughout you're stay. The area can be a bit rough, especially at night, but your kids shouldn't be here late anyways. Also Occidental College is a great liberal arts private school over the hill and often shares resources as well as scholarships with its neighbor.

I am the parent of a new incoming seventh grader. I must admit I was very apprehensive about my quiet and scholarly daughter attending the school. I have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the instruction, the quality of most teachers, and most of all just how much my daughter loves it. Great place!

I graduated from this school last June and even though I only spent my last two years of high school here, it's definitely a good school. Not the best since it needs improvement in some areas but overall, it's a great school :) I loved it here and the students were just really cool. The classes were pretty good as well, since ERHS really does care about its scores. Proud to be an Eagle ! :)

I love ERHS for a lot of reasons. First off, even though ERHS has a junior and senior high, it's my first year here (9th grader from another school), and I just enjoyed it, I guess. I'm in the magnet program which is a school within the school. ERHS always has something going on in the quad (pep rallies, club day, etc). It's a great place to learn. Our football team is the best. And our scores matter to the school. I love it here, and I look forward to the next three years.

Eagle Rock H.S. producers excellent scholars, athletes and has a rabidly loyal following and alumni. It's student population is diverse and excepting of everyone. The students are not afraid of a good protest to protect a beloved teacher. Go Eagle Rock High School.

Eagle Rock High is filled with great teachers, some are better than others, but overall they get the job done. The rules could be stricter and more security would be better but nothing big has ever disturbed the learning of most students. The ASB needs alot of help, but they are trying. The gangs and smoking situation should be looked into even more and the staff and teachers should look out more often when guarding the gates. The students are very smart and tricky that sometimes they outsmart the teachers and so they should be smarter when assigning homework. Not only in outsmarting the teachers through homework, but as well as the different students who take advantage of the secluded corners and low fences. However, Eagle Rock High tries it best for a school with a huge population. It's a school worth trying out (:

Eagle rock high school is one of the best in the entire lausd. It is situated in an area of heavy gentrification with home prices averaging 600,000. Parent involvment is growing in er as is evident by its parent center. The pta and other support systems available. The student body is highly diverse for an lausd school and the school offers a unique 7-12 grade experience. They offer ap courses in english, calculous abc, government, history, biology, environmental science, chemistry, physics, computer science, spanish language. The drama and music departments are superve. The quality of the shows are outstanding. As far as technology and media go er is one of the best in lausd with more than 1100 computers on campus all internet capable adn offering students digital portfolios and email accounts.
