my school has the best teachers you will ever find this school also has a lot of magnet students and also is a clean school
—Submitted by a student


Posted September 27, 2013

The new STEM Magnet has the potential to be great, but the administration and the district could get a little more behind it. There was a LOT of scheduling confusion at the beginning of the year leading and the Magnet really needs a source of funding for all the technology needed for the electives they offer and would like to offer, but which really make the Magnet an outstanding choice in high schools on the west side. The teachers seem very enthusiastic and willing to give. It would be nice if the school could figure out how to count the engineering classes as "science" as it is very difficult to meet all the A-G requirements, PE and an elective in 9th and 10th grades with only 6 periods to schedule.

I am a current graduate from the Venice High School Global Language Magnet class of 2013 and I am now a college student at California State University of Northridge. The Venice Magnet is a a great school and the community is wondeful.The counselor Ms.Roche-blair is amazing!! At VEnice you will always find help if you ask for it. You won't regret sending your child here. Me and my two sisters graduated from Venice (2012 and 2013) and know my cousin started hoing here this school year as a freshman and he loves the school already. GO GONDOS!!!

My boys are freshman in The Global Language Magnet. They are loving it. The teachers have been amazing. The Magnet Office - Ms Markussen and Ms Roche Blair are supportive, helpful, and knowledgeable. My boys play waterpolo and are enjoying that too. They are getting a well rounded education. We are very happy to be a Venice and a part of the Global Language Magnet.

So far so good! Our child is a freshman in the Global Languages magnet. All but one teacher seems fantastic and the remaining is improving. Swim team is a wonderful, community-spirited environment. There are an impressive number of awfully nice kids attending this school: such a lovely, supportive community. These kids, and these teachers, really, really leave me feeling impressed. All the teachers we've seen so far, are dedicated to developing broad-ranging, thoughtful curricula, relevant to the world at large as well as the subject's technical academic specifics. But we always figured this local school just down the road was a hidden treasure. What a great place. We feel lucky to live in the neighborhood.

Both my children attend Venice High School and we are very happy. The Magnet program is a very competitive course of study that is preparing them well for a college experience. The people and friends made are great involved and caring. I can't give Venice enough kudos! Go Gondos!

I am a current graduate (Class of 2012) from Venice High School, and I had a great experience as a student there. One word that describes this school is diverse. Students are of various ethnici backgrounds and have a wide range of interests. Most interact well with others, so there aren't any "cliques" like how high school is unfortunately perceived in movies. I also had very helpful teachers and amazing friends whom I will never forget! In addition Venice offers a variety of extracurricular activities and sports, which students come to enjoy very much. Most of the sport teams, such as football and volleyball, are very competitive. The school also has a high quality student-run newspaper and a great music program (both of which I was part of). Several AP classes are offered in preparation for colleges and universities. I know many students there who have been accepted to excellent colleges, such as Berkeley and Yale. Overall, Venice High School (in my perspective) has a nice "movie-like" campus without the movie ideals (cliques, fancy campus food, etc.). I definitely learned a lot from this school itself along with MOST of the academics.

Congratulations to Venice HS's Super Shop 9 graphic communications students for winning 1st place in the 2012 PIASC Graphics Academic Challenge. For their efforts, the graphic communications department received $5000 worth of Apple computer equipment and the winning student received a $1000 college scholarship.

Our 3rd out of 3 children just recently graduated. All three children had positive experiences. They were enrolled in the Foreign Language magnet and participated in sports, music, service organizations and clubs. Our kids got involved and really felt like they were a part of the community being in their local public high school. Each child attended a UC after high school.

I am the parent of a graduating senior from the Community School. He has received an excellent education, has made wonderful friends, has been able to compete in two varsity sports and other extracurricular activities. He has been accepted at the college of his choice, one of (if not the) most selective public undergraduate business schools in California, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I don't thnk he could have received a better overall educational experience period. My other child is in the Magnet program. Both are great. You don't have to be in the Magnet to get a great education at Venice. The Community School is developing some very interesting programs especially in Science, Engineering and Technology.

As a Professor of Education in the Los Angeles area that has provided consulting services to schools over the last 15 years, I can objectively share that I am more than satisfied with the comprehensive experience my daughter has received at VHS Magnet. I have found the staff to be courteous and professional, the teachers engaged and caring and the programs offered to be relevant. The principal has been refreshingly available. The counselor and Magnet coordinator are spectacular- responsive, professional...I have a sophomore at the magnet and an incoming freshman next year. I am sending my children there because kids go to great schools from the magnet (Columbia, Occidental, Berkeley, UCLA, USC this year) and because they get to have a comprehensive high school experience. The school is safe and engaging and diverse. Who wouldn't want their child in a school that prepares kids for college and offers a wealth of programs. Venice High School is a wonderful place. We are very happy there.

My daughter is a junior in the Foreign Language Magnet. She loves Venice and is getting an excellent education. The classes are challenging, the teachers are wonderful, and the students are smart, academically driven, friendly, and interested in the world around them. I was told before my daughter started that Venice kids naturally build friendships across racial and ethnic lines (whereas at some schools they tend to self-segregate), and that has been my daughter's experience. Kids who can handle the workload of honors and AP classes should consider Venice.

The Magnet teachers are great and do care about the kids. But the classes are getting bigger. They could use a few more assistants. Many of the good ones have retired.

The Foreign Language Magnet at Venice High is an outstanding college preparatory program. It has good teachers and high standards. Venice High also has a New Media Academy, many language offerings, many art offerings. There is a commitment among the faculty to actively reach out to students to help them.

Venice has something for everyone. The student just needs to get involved. Teachers, counselors etc. could do more to motivate participation - but parents should be encouraging as well. Busy students are the best kind.

My daughter, a Venice High graduate, is now completing her junior year at Stanford! She was well prepared and will be receiving an academic award next month. Venice also allowed her to enjoy participating in fall plays and spring musicals. So, this month she performs in Stanford's musical, 'Aida'. She keeps in contact with many of her high school friends and they still get together to visit Venice teachers. She is a product of LAUSD and I am grateful to all her teachers, K through 12.

This school is the one of the best high school in westside.. This year, many students were accepted to the UCs and other private university. They offer many AP courses. The student can move their GPA higher. I was very happy I sent my son to VHS. Only one concern, most of the good teachers are almost time to retire???

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.

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 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.

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.
