The West Campus teachers and administration only care about test scores and their reputation. It is a perfect school for students who can teach themselves and never have any questions. There is no tutoring offered and teachers do not extend themselves beyond their regular class hours. The office staff is unfriendly and condescending to both students and parents. This school looks great on paper but is a totally different reality.

If your child is a transferring upperclassman in search of AP classes prepare to be disappointed. My transferring junior was shutout of three AP classes for which she applied and I bored to death in general classes that provide zero challenge. To add insult to injury the school sends us a letter recommending she be enrolled the very three classes in which they denied her at the outset! The reason stated is the smaller enrollment size and the demand for AP classes. Result: a lot of time being wasted re-hashing curricula she learned in middle school. My transferring senior fared somewhat better. However; since he didn't take geography in CA, and there's no way to test out of the class, he wastes that period hanging out with freshmen not doing anything constructive. It took the school half a semster to decide music was an art after telling him it wasn't, therefore requiring him to take an art class in which he had no interest but had to as a requirement. When he attempted to switch over to band because he's been playing an instrument since the third grade, they denied that request citing no reason. Still waiting to see the benefit of enrolling my kids here.

West Campus is a great school. Like most public schools they could use extra funds for equipment and supplies but the teachers seem helpful and dedicated.

West campus curriculum is harder than college. It is all doable because you have such amazing assistance and the teachers are more than happy to help. They really improved my critical and analytical skills during my four years there and really prepared me for a four year in a university environment.

I graduated a few years back and i must tell you- it is a very difficult school (academically) but as I made friends the next few years in college, I slowly but surely realized that ( it may sound wrong) I am a lot more in tune intellectually than all my other friends. I soon showed most of my friends my technique of taking notes taught by West Campus' own Mr. Hotell and my friends have been getting nothing but A's and B's in the college classes. West Campus was a great experience, it definitely gave me stepping stones.

Even though there were times i dreaded at West Campus, I could not possibly see myself anywhere else. I love this school and I feel honored to be graduating from there.

We have been very happy with our son's experience at West Campus. He is doing very well academically, taking AP courses and participating in the marching band and the winter drum line. He came from a very small private school, and had no problem fitting in from the beginning. The size of the school is a plus, as it is smaller than most of the other high schools. To those who say they are only concerned about test scores, that is the nature of public education these days, and to the degree that West is guilty, I would say all good public schools have the same concern. I believe our son is getting a good education in spite of that.

What impresses me is the students want to learn and this school's "culture", despite the old facilities, promotes that. The students care. In my daughter's group project groups everyone is involved. Her older siblings were at a couple different local high schools and over the years there always were students who didn't care and hampered the groups.

i have been attending West for over a year now and I must say if you want something better for yourself, this school will help acheive your dreams. At frist it was very overwhelming but during the second semester it became at ease. It might feel like this school pushes you off the edge, but in reality it is actually shaping your life...even if you oblivious from the effect. I hope this school is right for, if you want to succeed in life. :D

Its an excellent school with awesome teachers. Teachers willing to put efforts and spend extra time into helping the students. You might have an A or B in other school and turn out you have a B or C in this school. But for future, grades are not really the thing that should be worry if you work hard. Working hard always helps to lock great longlasting knowledge: ) And Knowledge will always go along with you.

I hated this school it was one of the worst schools in Sacramento. The people at this school are mean and rude.The years that I spent at this school were horrible. The school is outdated and old. Overall I hated this school coming from Caleb Greenwood. They needed to be more welcome and forgiving and have a better introduction to people who came to smaller schools. I HATED MY EXPERIENCE AT WEST CAMPUS !! :(

We will be moving to Sacramento this summer and I am trying to determine which high school we would like our daughter to go to. We also will decide what part of the city to live in based on this decision. Thank you for all your help.

west campus is sadly all about scores and results. they dont care about the students they just care about keeping their reputation


Posted November 15, 2010

ALL ABOUT SCORES AND TESTS. The administration lacks the ability to know each "high achieving" student on any kind of personal level. They a public school snobs. Education is a collaboration between students parents, and schools. At West Campus Parents and students have very little say.

West Campus is the best of the best! If you come here, you can tell for yourself.This is a school that's everything but your average!We got the highest API of all the other highs schools and honestly I can say we don't even consider ourselves decent.We still strive for excellence every day.There's just so much school spirit here you simply can't ignore it.I had the chance to go to Hiram Johnson, McKlatchy,Health Proffesions,Sac high,and a arts & science school which I forgot the name of.My Cst scores are advanced and even though I moved to Elk Grove I had the option & choice to transfer.I know girls that go there which are now in prohibation.Events,Rallies,and everything you can think of is magnificent! Even though we don't have the amount of school funding and money we want we still make the best of it.

I was a student at West Campus coming from Sutter Middle School. I believe that WC's reputation is greatly exaggerated. At one time it might have been accurate but when I attended it seemed as though they attracted high achieving and motivated students and put them in classes with below average teachers and counted on their already high test scores. In fact the school seems obsessed with preparation for standardized tests. Most of the ever changing administration and staff seems uncaring for thier students. And because it is a small school there is very little choice in classes. If you are looking for a small, safe, average, meat and potatoes school then go for it! But dont have higher expectations. If it has gotten better in the last two years it will be a pleasant surprise.

I love West Campus because it is a small campus and the teachers work very hard to teach their students what they need to get into college.

School has been in only three weeks now and I have experienced nothing but a great deal of difficulties with the new Principal over the simplest of issues. Unfortunately, we chose to decline our child's acceptance at both a highly reputable private school and another highly prestigious and sought after program at another public highschool in another district in favor of attending West Campus. Thus far, just three weeks into the year, that decision seems entirely wrong. West Campus needs an experienced leader. It is no secret that, within the district, employees try to gain employment at West Campus because of its outstanding quality of students. Why such a coveted position at this school was given to someone with such little experience is just one more reason the Sacramento City Unified School District seems to constantly be the target of bad press.

My child attended this high school for 4 yrs. The administration changed 3 times. The teachers except for a few, like Mr. Ousley and Ms. Dennison and Mr. Pantages, were unwilling to go above and actually assist students who need help. Tutoring, forget it! If your student can teach themselves, this is the school for you. P.S. Don't go to the office, even to help out, unless you want to be treated without respect.

I love my school. The only downside is if the hall monitors think you're going a bit overboard (we often have birthday parties outdoors), and if your teacher is mean to you. I only have two teachers which I dislike; the rest are amazing. Kudos to Vidovich, McCord, Pantages, and Daigle. I have them this year and they're just plain great people who care about their students and aren't afraid to joke around. My grades do suffer, but it's because of my own actions. If you choose not to turn in assignments or study ahead for tests, of course you're not going to manage as well. But this school isn't just about our scores -- you will find a very warm attitude with the student body and most staff when you're on campus. (c/o 2011) KH

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.

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 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.
