This school almost killed my daughter. The teachers don't care, they just move kids on to get rid of them. My daughter passed the classes easily, she was used to more challenging courses, and then the peer pressure started in. The kids there were mean, doing drugs and alcohol and the staff didn't discipline! It was ridiculous! I feel bad for the kids who don't know what they're getting into and they won't have a good application for colleges. No programs are offered for an extra boost, except dome fake "college track" that doesn't even have qualified honors classes, and the kids don't even have to test to get in. If the kids ever do try to take an honors class they will be shocked by whats expected. I am so sad that kids go here, some without knowing that getting into good colleges will be hard, and some just there to party. -very concerned parent

Rancho Cotati School is the best. My daughter is in the 12th grade and they worked with her to bring her grades up and they really could use help with the sports program. The office staff is the best ever and they are there for the students. My daughter goes to see her counselor and gets right in and they get ahold of us right away if needed.

Amazing high school with the best teachers! My mom, brother and aunts all went to this high school and all loved it. It is a bonus that the football team is amazing and really makes the school have a lot of spirit, bringing everyone closer. Best high school in Sonoma County no doubt.

A handful of the teachers care about their students, but are usually frustrated by rules that permit them from straying form the bizarre curriculum. Not much offered in the way of academics. the students that succeed there are the kind that would succeed in any environment, not because of anything especial on the schools part. Anybody with options get out of Rancho ASAP.

This school is an absolute nightmare! If you are not on top of the teachers, counselers, principal etc..... they will let your child slip through the cracks. It is impossible to get anyone to return your phones calls. It would take about 3 weeks for anyone to call you back or for your student to get in to speak with a counselor. Many admitted mistakes were made with my childs credits which almost cost her her graduation. Finally, a few phone calls to the superintendants office fixed things. Almost everyone there wants to pass their responsiblities along to another because one hand has no idea what the other is doing. It's a joke trying to get a straight answer or to get anything accomplished with this high school. Some of the teachers really hate their job and have verbally made that clear to the students. You're kids will benefit by going to another school district unless you want them to end up at El Camino to make up credits to graduate. That's if they can even get in. It's very sad that this is what our kids have to look forward to. I have two other children to put through school and I do not plan to subject them to RCHS

I am sorry to see there are so many high rankings for this school. I left junior high an A student. Rancho Cotate did nothing but bring me down. I have seen many things at this school and would NEVER send my child to it.

My student graduated last year and is well prepared for the 4 year university he will be attending. The teachers were dedicated and helpful. Many of them inspired my student to make choices he would have never thought of on his own. Thank you Rancho.

Rancho is a very good school. I feel so fortunate to spend my senior year there. I was an exchange student from Vietnam at that time, and just only one year at Rancho makes me miss it a lot much more than I think. The teachers are very very nice and so sweet to sudents. They are really smart, helpful and humorous. Besides, the staff and the officiers are really close to students. Mr. Steffen is a very good principal and extremely nice to all of us. I love Rancho more than I think! It is the most wonderful high school to me! It makes my exchange student year so meaningful and unforgettable!!!

Rancho is my home away from home! All the good memories about my friends, teachers, and school way over rise the bad! Can't see myself anywhere else

I graduated from Rancho last year and I never knew how much I would miss it. It's not the best looking school but there's no issues with learning or making friends. Rancho is a school that celebrates differences in so many ways and i was glad to be a part of it. I was a member of the marching band (actually the captain of the colorguard) and the band teacher, who is going on his 4th year teaching at Rancho, is pumping all of his time and money transforming the band and promoting the school with competitions. We have a new football field and an incredibly good football team, that only years ago...well, wasn't so good.

i think rancho has a long way to go before it is able to show the smae amount of support to all of its students. the teaching is only subpar and it offers special programs for the students that dont speak engilsh, for rancho to be able to be truely a good school i think we need to have more oppertunities for the engilsh speakers of rancho.

My overall opinion of this school is positive. I think the school does offer courses for academic students to excel, and also offers classes for students whom struggle in certain subjects. I think the new administration is doing a good job keeping students on track, and last but not least I think the parental participation and school spirit at this school is amazing.

Rancho Cotate is Sonoma Counties best kept secret!Since Joe Williams became principal everything has changed! A strong leader makes a huge difference. The staff and faculty are proud of their school, as are the students. The new band teacher has doubled the size of the band and they have won many awards. The AP program is very successful. 74% of students taking AP testing passed. The national avg. is only 60%. Our sports teams are top notch. Our selection of extra-curricular activities, clubs and groups far out number any other school. Add to that the 9 phases of improvement (the new auto body and first response programs and 3000 seat football stadium this year) and Rancho is your best bet!

I have had two children attend RCHS and both kids have received very good educations. My elder child is now a sophomore at UC Berkeley, and my younger will be a junior at Rancho this year. We have issues with the physical plant of the school, but the teaching is excellent. And the school board has finally agreed to use 1989 bond monies to completely upgrade the entire school site starting this year.

We are thrilled with Rancho Cotate High School! Our daughter is a Junior and has made many friends and loves her classes. Her teachers have taken a sincere interest in her goals. The administration cares about its students.

I graduated from Rancho Cotate in 2005. Rancho Cotate is an excellent school for a student who wants to succeed. There are a wide range of Advanced Placement(AP) classes offered that help students get a jump on their college career. The honors and AP teachers care about students are always available to help students. The music program certainly needs some help, but there are many other electives that students can take depending on what they are interested in. The adminstration has had a huge turnover and hopefully it is for the best.

Rancho Cotate is a good school despite it's reputation. The teachers all try to help my child and the new administration has really taken over. They set down rules and the kids are following them for once.

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.
