I've been very pleased with Hart. My son will be in his 3rd year and our daughter will be a freshman this fall.

This school and the district are a jewel. I have lived in this community for over 20 years and this school has provided my nephews and both my children outstanding education's and has sent them off to some of the top universities in the world (our son attends MIT), but no matter how good the school is the child and the family have to put in the work. If you're up for it this school is a springboard to a world class education.

My daughter started at Hart High after leaving a private school. I am completely satisfied with the academics and the teachers at this school. I have always heard wonderful things about Hart and now I know why.

Hart is a great school. I feel that it's important for people to understand that this ranking is very subjective. A person has one problem and they rank poorly dropping the numbers. Hart High School has amazing teacher - AP and General alike and we have nothing but good things to say about the teachers that our child has received. They have helped when they didn't understand a concept and have been very available. Great administration and excellent staff.

Like anything in life, academics, athletics and artistic excellence needs to be balanced for our students. At Hart High School - the general attitude, however, is one that caters to 'fun' and underachievement. If you are a self motivated student, you will excel in spite of this attitude but you will not be pressed to push yourself. There is a good deal of talk by the administration and teachers, of college prep. and tough classes, and some requirements in some classes are more challenging than others. However, and again, the student that excels does so mostly by their own initiative. Additionally, there is a good deal of hypocrisy between what is demanded of the students & how the teachers conduct themselves. Lost papers, projects, missed deadlines - changed deadlines, inconsistent grading and the like are the norm with a number of TEACHERS.

Depends on the teachers you get. I had a really bad geometry teacher last semester and almost everyone failed. My geom teacher this semester is amazing. It really depends on the teachers you get and how motivated you are to learn. Security is low and there are a lot of gang bangers and kids who are only there cause it's the law. Teachers mainly do nothing about student disruptions. I do not feel safe at this school and am transferring to a different high school next school year.

This school has more AP classes than any other locally and more students passing AP exams. Remodeling is starting this year. Extracurriculars are superb.

I have a son with ADHD,I believe the special ed classes just want to push them thru and not deal with having them truly learn.The only time that you know if your child is not up to par is when it's too late.My youngest has been pushed around by the wanna be gang bangers.Teachers have a biased political view.I also wonder why there is a young democrats club and not one for republicans.The pledge of allegiance is recited maybe twice a week.

This school is absolutely one of the most prestigious schools academically and athletically. I adore this school and staff. The staff is motivated to its students 100 percent. They respect the students and take it out of there own time to help students. I went here and enjoyed it so much and cant believe its over because teacher have become friends and are really great people that I adore and respect. Learned so much, which helped me in college at a UCLA. I graduated in 2006 and feel prepared to embark on any challenge thanks to the staff, students, and alumni of the prestigious and great Hart High School.

Hart High School is the worst possible school out there. The classes (even the honors) aren't challenging. All they care about is their football team.

Hart is full of heart! This school has been amazing to me and to my fellow students these past 4 memorable, touching, and unforgettable years. I love this school with my heart. I wasn t apart of sports but joined many clubs that made me amazed and part of hart! From the first day of school mr. Fuller told us these four years go fast and to join clubs and meet people. Every teacher I ever had always put extra time to help those who were struggling...And needed the extra help. Mr. Fuller door was open to all students. I did not only make so many good friends but faculty. They are now apart of me (librarians, teachers. Thank you hart for the memories! Class of 2006!

Upper level classes (honors and AP) are very challenging and highly looked upon by colleges. My daughter is a gifted student is still very challenged in these classes.

Great extracurricular activities, parents very involved. Many opportunities for students to take AP classes
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 8, 2006

This school has a very good sports program and good after school tutoring for the students. There are many clubs for the students to participate in. I have been disapopinted with the educational level, however, as my daughter has not significantly improved while attending this school. The school does a poor job of preparing their students for college. Security is also an issue for the students.

This school primaraly excells in athletics, however they do take the time to meet standrards. They offer many AP and Honors programs to the students at every grade level, unlike other schools in the district.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 11, 2006

The academic programs are excellent and there are many extracurricular activities to choose from. Too many parents are in denial, too busy with their lives or condoning this behavior. It's not the school that should be addressing these problems, but the parents. I do not see the parent involvement (other than the same ones year after year) like others see it. The monthly parent meeting confirm this.

Lots of low performing students who disrupt classes without any penalty. Parents blame school for the heavy drug and alcohol use. Lots of partying going on, not much learning.

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.
