It's a good school in comparison to say, Vista High or Rancho, but overall, the classes suck, the variety and diversity of the classes are atrocious, the councilors are less-than average, some of the teachers are really bad, most of the staff and students have little to no interaction, they waste your time with stupid get-togethers in the theater, they seem to specifically focus on 2-year or 4-year colleges, and have the look of pity if you mention a community college or a trade school; God forbid you don't know how the college system words. They vaguely explain it to you, if not at all. You have to make an appointment to meet with some of the staff, they set up your schedule, sometimes, in a way that sets you up for failure (I've had it happen for 3 years so far) and say "There's nothing we can do". They never keep promises. They don't balance time well. The 4 x 4 is a great idea, and it's neat to put into play, but they don't think about how scheduling can make it VERY difficult. Four classes a term, all AP, and four classes the next term, all electives? Impossible, and yet, they don't care; don't bother changing it. This has been a terrible experience. I regret it choosing here.
