Choosing a High School: San Marino or Pasadena High School


proudmom8 March 16, 2012

I have an option of either of the two high schools. I know San Marino (SM) is thriving academically, but it is not very diverse (mostly Asian and Caucasian)and I'm afraid my kids won't "fit in" (we're Hispanic). Pasadena High School (PHS), fits the diverse category, but is inferior to SM academically. I want my kids to be challenged academically, but I don't want to stress them out where they feel they can't compete. I also don't want them to feel like outsiders because there are so few Hispanics and African Americans. SM also has less students than PHS, and that is definitely a plus. I would love to hear from SM parents and students - thanks.
