I like the involvement of the Administration with the faculty and their students. The security of the school thanks to the dedicated Dean and supportive staff.

There are so many opportunities for you to do things outside of school. The clubs are fun and open to all students, the school is one of the best in the nation, and it is located in a friendly community,

I am a former student, loved most of my teacher (taught me to focus and study properly). I felt safe and had fun with extracurricular activities.

ERHS is a great L.A. school that's very diverse and offers something for everyone. Our students are hardworking and are simply, the best. I would not work anywhere else.

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.

This school has great teachers and the principle is a USC graduate. The school has many extracurricular activities. Their system is good, with a magnet, honors classes and normal classes. I go there and it is a great school.

I feel this school lacks quality math teachers. Also I don't have any confidence with the current school principal.

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 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.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
