This school is Great . All the teachers are fantastic and know what they're doing. Last year, I went to poly and people would just goof off . But, at Reseda people care and aren't stupid. The people are friendly, the sports are good, and the staff is nice. I'm glad I moved here & I can't forget the " Law & Public Service Magnet " it's Fantastic ! Especially as a sophomore having Corbett & Alfera .

Reseda High is great compare to many other schools in the area. It lacks diversity they say? Well, not really. Reseda is actually one of the most diverse schools in the Valley. Professors are rude? It depends how you speak to them, of course if you come with an attitude they will not stand such. What gets me the most is how parents think the professors are the bad ones, when in fact is the opposite. Professors are RSH are great! But your children are not so much. I graduated with Honors from the Science Magnet, loved my experience here. I am currently a sophomore at University in the Midwest. If it wasn't for my teachers, counselor & college counselor I wouldn't be here typing this. This people helped me so much, I don't even know how to say thank you to them. I hope that in the future I could donate money to RSH because they deserve it. Now, my sister who also attends RSH is just a regular student & she's a witness that professors are good but the students are bad. I loved my AP teachers, they were just amazing. My sister is graduating with an even higher GPA than mine & all because she worked hard for it, unlike many others who's parents just whine & whine.

I am extremely concerned about safety at the school. It appears that former students and other people can freely wander onto campus through "the back gate" and "hang out" all day. If former students can do this then so can other people.

Yes, I enrolled my son in Reseda Senior High School so that he can use his last four years of public school to be challenged by their exceptional Magnet Program. Reseda High School is also rated #1 in their District with regards to their API. I have (personally met my son's teachers) and I can tell you that they are there to really help prepare him for the strenuous demands of balancing both a college and athletic career simultaneously. I think to give advice to others about a school that you yourself haven't taken the time to genuinely examine shows a lack of responsibility.

My son just transfered to Reseda based on his mother wanting to get him into the AP Science and Math magnet program. That's the only reason worth going there. The rest is all down hill. This school lacks diversity and school pride. The campus is massive with old buildings and looks like juvenille hall. The athletic teams are garbage. If you're looking for a balanced academic environmnet for your child, Reseda HS ain't it.

I agree with the rude staff comment. I've had several problems with staff here - particularly the PE and coaching staff. .I'm really not happy with the school at all. Their push right now is how their API has increased - but that's only due to the science magnet, not the rest of the student body.

Reseda High School tends to receive negative reviews from parents, students and other members from the community because many of them are not aware of the school's Science Magnet Program. This small learning community runs and is based within the "host" school, but is entirely separate and different in terms of the academic curriculum, teaching staff, and students. This school's magnet program is composed of an excellent pair of guidance counselors who come to know almost every students' name and who know when to praise an achieving students while taking the necessary actions if a pupil is falling behind. They manage to get to know their students while fulfilling their counselor responsibilities and encouraging them to strive for success both in and out of the classroom. As for the academic programs within the Science Magnet, these are excellent; the curriculum, which is different from the general host school, offers a wide variety of AP courses and ensures each student is academically prepared for college and meets the University of California (UC) eligibility requirements. It prepared me well enough that I am currently a first year attending Brown University.

I spent hours trying to get my son's scheduling conflict resolved - no one wanted to help, calls were not returned and I spent ages in their voice mail hell because they 'couldn't transfer me' to the correct person. Not really happy with administration there at all!

Reseda gave my son and I (hope) something every kid in order to succeed needs in their life. My son was about to drop out of school but luckily I enrolled him at Reseda.Without their support and trust that my son would come through , he would of not achieved been a 2008 graduate , No kid will succeed without parent involment and no parent will succeed without school support. This is what we both found at Reseda it takes a team to win and between Reseda and I we were able to achieve this .. So I would recommend Reseda to every parent, that is having problems with their kids 'if and of course you are involved also' , otherwise you can enroll your kid in the highest school but the outcome may be the same. Reseda is what a school should be , dedicated and caring . Thank you

Reseda High School has enabled me to find my passion, engineering. The school has a great Robotics program and the Science Magnet has excelled beyond any other... The AP have been a taste of college and have helped me greatly through college... I am proud to call myself a Regent and I greatly reccomed this school to ANYONE!

This is a very good school. I recommend this to a lot of people. Recently, Reseda has gone downhill but I hope it does a turn around. The school has great AP classes and Magnet meanwhile the regular classes are easy.

I have 3 children who have attended Reseda (one is still a student there). Most of the teachers I've encountered have been very caring and have gone above and beyond in providing recommendations, guidance or extra help if needed. The Science Magnet is great, but I've been disappointed in the leadership at the school. It seems that there is no cohesive general plan. Money is received from grants or other sources but not utilized to its full potential and there have been some questionable staffing decisions. It seems that the school has been going down hill in the last year or two, which saddens me since I used to recommend it highly to everyone. I hope things turn around.

Personally I believe in Reseda. No not every teacher teaches and not every students wants to learn.We have many success stories of student going to college weather it be a Junior College or 4 year.The kids that lack parent support have fallen back on Reseda pride and end up doing very well here. Overall you have a principal that cares enough to keep those kids in school.Our school is going to be divided into communities this coming fall I hope through these centers the students will have more of a goal to achieve. Way to go MR.TARIN.Thanks for keeping the gangs out and our school safe.

I think Reseda is a good school, if your in the Magnet or in AP classes. The AP teachers are fabulous and the classes are a challenge. Regular classes on the other hand is an Easy A. Academically I would rate it a D. But socially, it's a great enviroment.

My experience with Reseda High School has been overall positive. While the campus is old, it is maintained and kept clean.

Hidden Gem of the Valley. Mostly nice kids. Mostly good caring teachers. Outstanding Science magnet program. My biggest concern was safety but my son and daughter never had any problems and never even saw a fight in the 4 years they were there (6 total).

If you are looking for a school that can baby sit your kids while you go to work, this is the school for you. The teachers that the new principla Mr. Tarin from (San Fernando H.S.)has hired are raleted or close friends of his. You got coaches coaching who have never played sports before. You has english teachers who have trouble speaking english themself.

As a former student of the Enviromental Magnet Program at Reseda, I must say that I reseived a quality education there. The Magnet is a separate school from Reseda. Parent Involvement in the magnet is high while it is low in the regular school. Also there are a lot of kids bussed in from L.A. While I was there most of the kids that were bussed in had been bussed since elementary school. A lot of the kids have gone to school together since elementary. There is a lot of school spirit which can be very important.
