Perris High School is one of the best high schools in my opinion! The campus is beautiful and the staff and the teachers are amazing! The teachers are always welcoming new students with open arms and large smiles on their faces. I've struggled a lot throughout my freshman year and when I thought I had no one to turn to, I looked back and seen all my teachers standing behind me when I needed it the most. I don't know the definition of a great school but in my opinion, Perris High School would fit in that category. The staff is always friendly and willing to help any student out when he or she is struggling even the slightest bit. The teachers and staff are always helping students out when they're struggling with a problem either school related or even when it's a personal struggle. There are so many clubs and sports and things like that to join. I have not yet joined a club but I am a "TA" (teachers assistant) for the football team and being the only female there, it was an amazing experience. I enjoy seeing the boys and the coach everyday! The coach is amazing and always pushes the boys to their physical breaking point when it comes to football!

I am currently a senior at Perris and have mixed feelings about the school. Those who say the school and it's students are horrid and "ghetto" are ignorant. I currently have a 4.8 GPA and have excelled greatly throughout my high school career. The students that fail do so by choice, not by fault of the school. I do, however, have a great problem with administration. They are extremely corrupt and show favoritism towards athletes. Their priorities are not to help the students succeed in the future, but to keep them in school in order to receive funds. The teachers I have had are nothing short of amazing, but one must take into consideration that I have had all advanced and AP courses, I am sure there are other teachers that are not as supportive or helpful. Although there is a vast portion of students that are not motivated academically and choose to neglect schoolwork, there is still a great amount of brilliant, driven students that have not been held back by the school they attend. There are times when I would prefer attending a different school, but again I have done extremely well at Perris despite its negative reputation.

Perris High is a good school, I cannot complaint about it. It offers a great programs for the students. Counseling service is good, and I have witnessed that the school is improving day by day. A few years ago it was an "uncomfortable" zone; but now, as a parent, I feel always welcomed. Also they provide the Parents University which offers courses to parents and the Parent Center open every Wednesday. All what it is said about this is a bad school , at least to me has been a mistake. Just for a few students who don't want to strive or do their best, sadly, negative opinions "pop out". Just be involved, make sure your student is on the right place at the right time. Visit your son at school sometimes, keep communication with the teachers and everything will work out!

I have two kids that go to PHS and they do just fine. They are involved with ROTC,they have a good solid group of friends, they both get good grades, and love gpoing to school each day. One of my kids lives with Autism and has never been picked on(the kids at that school wouldn't put up with it) and teachers are good. Never have they come home scared, beaten up or on drugs! I have been to the school a number of times and have never seen graffti or tagging anywhere. That's a lie. And, if people want to complain, maybe you should get involved with your kids school more.

I am currently attending Perris High School and I love it. Parents are over reacting saying there are fights daily, fights occur, but not daily. Maybe when you attended this school it was horrible, I assure you so much things have changed. Our test scores have raised dramatically not to mention we're all working hard to make it better. Our own community bashes our school, instead of just complaining, why don't you help us make it a better school for your own children? It's sad how the students can't even wear our school's clothing to a store without being criticized. People change, so can Schools. Teachers there help us and push us towards college. Don't judge us based on a few bad students. When you hear our school, "Ghetto" automatically comes into your mind. Once again, thats over reacting. Its actually a great school and I'm proud to call myself a Panther.

I believe that Perris High is a great school and that the teachers arent just there for a pay check. My child wasn't doing so good and her teachers helped her and stayed in contact with me and even the sprit of the students there make me happy they strive for greatness.

The teachers are great!!! They put goals for us and we don't live in a fantasy like others.We know where we stand and know how to deal with the different situations we encounter. 'Never give up'' is our school moto and that is exactly what we do inspite of the family and economic situations we deal with daily. The teachers as well wa the staff are there and understanding. So parents don't hate if you don't even know what really happens at your own homes. The staff deserve all the respect they deserve!! Know your child before you blame the school for your child failure.

Perris High School for a long time has been though of as the 'worst school' in the Perris Union High School district. Ever since Penny Graham started being the principal everything started to change. Teachers follow the rules now and the quality of security is exceptional. Like in all high schools fights are usual, at PHS they are keeping it at a minimum with dedicated assistant principals, infact there are 3 assistant principle. That is a good thing to have because each has their own principal role to handle stuff. The counselors are doing their best to influence kids to do their best. The school even has an AVID counselor which is a great impact in the school because it gives the AVID students an advantage they know more about college oriented steps to take than the other counselors. This school is on track to reversing its bad reputation.

This is a terrible school. The staff is rude. There isn't any excitement about sending the kids to college. The parents have to do all the work for their kids to go to college. Also, the gym is very dirty. Send your kids to Rancho Verde or to Heritage high school. Please do not send your kids here.

this school always had fights and i dont like what my daughter tells me about the gang problem at the school.

The propensity for violence at this high school is higher than others. Some teachers make a valiant attempt at teaching the students but most eventually fall into the 'not caring' category because the lacking in parent participation/involvement from that area. After attending multiple high schools this one should be avoided if you can help it. Send your children to Paloma or Temescal Canyon where they can think more about school and grades instead of thinking about how to walk home without getting jumped. Good luck.

This school has alot of potential. This school is lacking communication with the parents. Communication prior to failing a student will make this school academics boom to its best acadimic potential!

Perris high is not a good school, but they do have good teachers. I am currently a junior at perris, and this is my first year here. This school is also rundown and old. But there is also a positive side. The administration is very good. The counselors in particular. They will guide you on the right road to college, etc. I hope that this will give you some insight before enrolling your son/daughter.

Perris High School has been plagued for far too long by untrue tall tales of supposed on-campus violence and crime. The truth of the matter is that PHS has been improving steadily amidst these stories; with a new Science building and new Principal leadership, the school seems to have blue skies in its future. Beneathe the reputation lies a flurry of extra-curricular activity, the school's main strong point. Though the level of Parent involvement is almost embarrassingly low, programs like JROTC and the school's active selection of clubs and sports manage to keep the general being of the student body on a positive note. The school faces problems like many others. The staff is consistent in their efforts against such problems--coinciding nicely with the experienced teachers and counselors. As a student, I couldn't be more satisfied with a public school.

This school is bad. The administration is pathetic. The teachers (some of them do care) think all students are wrong and won't support them.

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.

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.

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.
