I currently attend this school as a senior and have done so since freshmen year.La Sierra is a really good school. It offers good programs such as health academy. The health academy is a program that prepares you for the future if you want to be in the health fied The teachers are really attentive. They are very caring,you can call them a friend.The bad comments aren't true, at least not for the past years.I recommend that your children go to this school if they have the chance to.

There are some great teachers like Mr. Pike, Mr. Anderson, Mr. Whelchel, and Ms. Trujillo who make learning a more interesting and rewarding experience.

I have attended La Sierra High School all for years, and i would have to say that there is Nothing wrong with La Sierra High. I read about other people saying that they are dealing with racial issues, and that is totally false. La Sierra is a well-rounded school, which YOU have the ability to make it a good school, or bad. You can be yourself at La Sierra and not have to worry about other people and how they react. I highly recommend this school, and tell people if they heard La Sierra is a bad school, it isn't. It was, however, in the past in the 90s, but it is a much better and safe school.

The best part about the school are the AP teachers. These teachers go into a mediocre school with the intent to help and guide students to the best of their abilities. The school is not be in the best of neighborhoods, and therefore comes the racial problems. It is not necessarily the case that a good education isn't obtainable at la sierra, but the students work for what they receive. School spirit is not great at La Sierra. The administration needs to make drastic changes to get in touch with the children, but they have not gotten it right so far. I hope the school improves. I really want to revisit my alma mater and see children actually enjoying what they go to every weekday.

This school is very unsafe. Their is constant race problems. The staff are o.k. The Principal is one of the worst, he takes the smallest thing and makes a big deal and when something big happens, he barly moves a finger! My only concern is the race problems though.

While I agree with the poster who said the fine arts programs are good, I have to qualify that and say that the drama program here is very cliquish. The drama department also has a 'multimedia' course which is woefully antiquated..both the instruction and the equipment. This schools drama program has been a big disappointment to my student.

After attending LSHS for for years I must say overall it is a good school and has many memories. The one thing they must fix is favoritism when it comes to sports.

This school has an excellent fine arts program and some fabulous teachers in the AP and Honors program. While some of the teachers are excellent at LSHS, some are below par. They are unable to control the classrooms and the students are very disrespectful. The school has a problem with violence between some of the races.

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.
