I attend Montebello High school. It is a really good school. i think people should know that we are underestimated. People label us the underdog of the MUSD. They often compare us to our rivals Shurr high school.I for sure DO NOT appreciate that. I would like my school district to pay attention to MHS. They cut us out to benefits just because some people do not follow the rules. Not all of MHS's students are what you call "bad students". MHS is clean not as much graffiti in the school as people expect. The school does not have as much school spirit as the other high school I attended. All in all, i Believe MHS is a great school.

I am a former student, and when I was there I had all the best teachers you can imagine. Not only did they teach you what they were supposed to teach you, but they helped you believe in yourself and your ability to get a better education to become the person you can imagine. There are students and teacher alike who came from many different backgrounds, cultures, and race. Being at a school like this reminds you that although your community might be small, there is alot of love and support and a big world out there that needs to be explored beyond the school gates.

Although Montebello High school may have a vast quantity of students, it is not refutable to say that it does provide the most education that it could offer. AP classes are available for students who strive for college and are taught by qualified teachers.

I am a previous student from Montebello High School. I determine that the instructors & counselors were not as involved with the students due to over crowding.

I have been a teacher here for 10 years and have enjoyed it. The students are great and the staff and administration is wonderful. The only negative is that the school is growing.

Montebello High School has been a positive experience for my son. He struggled early in academic career, but at Montebello was able to participate in a program that really helped him. They have a program , Futures, aimed at helping kids who need a different environment. Without that program, my son would not have graduated.

Great school for advanced students, scores don't reflect the possibilities for all students.

This is a school with excellent instructors and leadership. It is a large campus located in the suburbs of a large city and has a diverse ethnic population. While Montebello High School may not have the highest API scores, the faculty and staff are always attempting to motivate students to do well and parents to get involved in their son or daughter's education. There are many opportunities and activities on campus, including sports, music, theater, and a wide array of clubs. Academically, the school offers a large number of Honors and AP courses and is making great strides to incorporate computers into the classroom and curriculum.

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.
