After reading all the reviews on this school it is clear to see the only thing good at Pittsburg High are the Band and clubs! The school is only worried about money not education. They are not concerned about student/staff safety only money thats why it takes an act of God to suspened or expell a student no mateer what! The 'security' staff is a joke! About the only people I do see when I visit there is the custodial staff. ( I can't believe with the square footage and student population there are only 12 of them)

As a junior at P.H.S. I have come to love every aspect of P.H.S. It's Extracurricular activities band, drama, choir and sports to name a few and not to mention the aray of academic classes we have and the aray of offered classes in almost every category of study. Yes, every school has it's faults, P.H.S. is like any other school with more talent, spirit and pride than any other. And more ethnic groups as one of my formers classmates mentioned in her reviews that we have so many different ethnic clubs such as Latinos Unidos, Pacific Islanders, BSU and Fil-Am and I'm working on a celtic club. If students can't stand up for their own school then I guess it may not be a very good school.

As a parent of a 9th grader of Pittsburg High, I find that the leadership at Pittsburg High is very negligent in their leadership duties. Vice Principal show lack of concern for parents that may be having a problem with a teacher. If the leadership of a school is not concern that shows a precedent of what messege he displays to his teachers.

I was a student at Pittsburg High School. I enjoyed a variety of extracurricular activities, including clubs and the music program. The reputation of the school is not an execptional one, but that is only the reputation. There is no problem with the teachers at the school, in fact they try their hardest to help students pass and even earn above average grades. It is not the teachers fault that some students lack a certain work ethic or are not motivated. The courses at the school are wonderful.

Now a freshman in college, I now realize that I was not reall prepared for college courses through PHS. Although a school with lots of spirit the education is not that great.

I'm currently a sophomore at PHS and I love it there. Pittsburg High has had it's 'bad rep' for quite a while and it's time to get past that. We are a unique school which is very diverse and is very organized. I'm a member of the Leadership Class at PHS, and I can assure you that PHS is very organized and fun! There are many extracuricular activities such as clubs, sports, afterschool program,and many more. Also PHS has one of the best marching show bands around (which is now nationally known.) Pittsburg High has it's downsides, but thinking realistically, which school doesn't? I'm very involved at PHS, and I think my opinion is as accurate as it gets.

I'm a sophomore at PHS. Yes, Pittsburg High is sometimes unorganized and inappropriate, but there are some good things about our school. For instance, our Extracurricular Activities are great advantages for students to get involved with school and to have a sense of belonging with others. Some good examples are the PHS Marching Show Band which I am also apart of. We are considered the 'Pride of Pittsburg' which I think is great. And the clubs on campus are also very good. We have many cultural clubs like Latinos Unidos Council, Fil-Am, GSA(gay straight alliance), BSU, and Pacific Islanders to name a few... there are some teachers that could get a bit getting used to, but there are still many that are there to help your kids get that education that they need to get through life. We also have some high level classes open to all students in every grade. PHS has a bad reputation, but that doesn't mean that our school hasn't changed any.. we have.

Pittsburg High School does have violence and some unorganized staff but there are students that try to learn and there are some good teachers.

Pittsburg High is a very badly run high school, very disorganized, no respect for parents, and teachers with poor knowledge of the material they are teaching.

I just wanted to say i am a freshman at pittsburg High school and so far i really like it. I am involved inthe marching band and it is great. Everyone knows we are good and they dont wantto mess with us. I recommened Pittsburg High School if you want your kids tobe busy and having fun altogether.


Posted October 9, 2003

My two kids are enjoying their time at Pittsburg High. I am a bit concerned about a geography teacher with such a pronounced accent that my child can't understand her and what seems to be a relatively high rate of student violence. My children relate to me at least one fight a day on average and sometimes more. I expect that there will be fights but the level of violence perpetrated during these fights seems to be on the extreme side. Other than that my students are enjoying their teachers and are doing well academically.

Pittsburg High is very unorganized


Posted June 20, 2003

Pittsburg High has made great progress over the past 2 years. I feel Principal Ahonen's leadership has been instrumental in giving us back a high school to be proud of and students that don't just pass, but succeed!

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.
