my school has an amazing academic teachings. and is great to go to for sports.


Posted May 4, 2012

I graduated from Rancho and I am now an employee at the school. I think Rancho is the best high school in the area, and I mean this from a student's perspective and a staff perspective. When I was a student, the teachers were helpful and I received a good education while in school and received the necessary guidance I needed to go to college. In the end, it was MY responsibility to work hard in school & plan for my future and I take ownership of that. If a student does not succeed because of his/her poor choices, the school is not to blame, but rather the student. Teachers/staff at Rancho were there when I needed them back in my days. Today, teachers/staff go above and beyond for students! They have the necessary guidance from their counselors, guidance techs & teachers. We go out of our way to encourage students in their education and to pursue higher learning. Rancho was a great school when I attended and now it is an even better school with wonderful programs and opportunities for students. In a nutshell, Rancho is EXCELLENT!

I'm a recent alumni of RVHS. I enjoyed my 4 years at Rancho. For the most part, the teachers are awesome. I loved some of my AP classes which helped me determine my major in college. AVID is highly stressed for those who want to go to college and the College and Career Center will help students achieve their goal of attending college. Overall, I found some of my classes challenging, but I do have to agree with some of the other reviewers - scheduling is a nightmare and hexads suck. The school isn't all that overcrowded. It makes for a more spirited environment where students can thrive in co-cirrcular and extra-cirrcular activities and sports. Overall, I love Rancho and will miss it dearly!

Excellent teachers, AVID National Demonstration School, tutoring available for children needing help, balanced focus on academic programs AND sports, new principal in 09-10 school year started "Principal's Honor Roll". We have two teens here, and have been so impressed with their teachers; email communication is fantastic between parents and teachers, and parents are able to check grades, homework, attendance, absences, missing assignments, test scores, etc online with the click of a few buttons. We bought our house specifically in our neighborhood so our kids would be in this school zone, and we're happy we did.

im a freshmen at this great high school and think its great. i really like the RV Scholars program they have provided to me. This Program really challenges me and allows me to get a better education than other students ( other students still get great educations here). Also the music program is amazing. We got 8th place in SCSBOA in the 5A division and 11th place in WBA in the 4A division. Even though this school is great for me I it is ridiculously overcrowded. Another issue is the districts lack of financial support for this school and its programs. This year the band only got three thousand dollars for its budget. We spent almost 120,000 dollars a year. Finally the teachers are great for AP and Honors level classes but are not strong in normal classes.

This is the best high school because they have great teachers that do care about students but also the students are the ones that have to put dedication to learn in a good environment..

I have taught at Rancho Verde for 5 years. I love my job. I want to add a few things to your plate that might give a less prejudice view of the school. life is not perfect and sometimes things don't go as smoothly as possible for example schedules that are handed out to a student population of 3200 students is not that easy. traffic that entails the dropping off of 3200 students that is cleared within 20 minutes. Another posting mentioned testing well has anyone looked at how are yearly API and AYP have changed the community. Students need to own up to their job and parents need to support this. I am personally appalled by many students and parents idea of being ready for school. It's not just coming to school its really doing your job at being a good student not just warming the seat.

My son really disliked this school. The grading system made no sense.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 3, 2008

All this talk about the hexads is really making me angry because although they are 50% of your grade it is not hard to get an A. All you have to do is study. Every teacher at Rancho gives the students study guides so anyone who fails probably didn't study.

Posted January 22, 2008

RVHS overall is a great school. I have two freshmens that attend this year and they are coming out of moreno valley school distrcit and i can tell the difference in school district. The only complaint that i hear from students is the Hexad exam. Only because it is 50% of there grade. The school really needs to find a way that this students can pass the exams.

Posted June 4, 2007

I am barely going to be a Sophmore, and so far, for my first year at Rancho... I don't like it. Don't get me wrong. It's not because, 'I don't like going to school' but it's because of all the pressure they are putting us through from Hexads. Every six weeks we have big tests, and you know what? I have so much weight on my shoulders that it's becoming so unbearable that I just want to stay home at rest. I like school, and I love learning. We have great teachers and teachers that march to their own drum and I don't see as many fights as other school. In safety, its great, but in academically, I wish they had more and they stuck with Quarters. That's all I have to say. More people are failing because of this and I have college to think about.

Posted May 18, 2007

I attended this school for the full years and I can say with certainty that if you want your student to know about college don't send them here, because the students are not informed about what's going on in the school and many of the schools supplies are broken or nonexistent. Teachers are good, if you take AP classes but, otherwise they don't always have the students best interest in mind. Its a ok school, if you cant send your kids anywhere better.

The school and staff is pretty good and the academics are challenging but the Hexad is just not fair.

When I first sent my daughter to this school I wasnt to sure because of how many students were attending it! But then I seen her become more involved and loved thier sports program! The only thing I dont aprove of are these hexad test's that they now have to take!

School has great extracurricular programs and many students on the path to success. But much equipment loacated on campus needs to be fix, and students are playing the primary role in the destruction of classroom materials.

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.
