i am currently a sophomore and i can say i'm prepared to enter my junior year sac high and the teachers take the time to check with you to make sure that your grades do meet college requirements and they have weekly check ins in which they give a "quick look up" to have the student give to the parent and returned sign to verify the parent is also checking the progress of there child.
Sac High puts Students first and the proof is in the school statistics. Need I say more? See for yourself.
First time my daughter ever made honor roll. This school knows just how to motivate these kids and graduate them to universities. I highly recommend it!
I have a 9th grader at Sac High. Initially I was concerned about the neighborhood, as it is in Old Oak Park. However, I have now come to understand that Sac High plays a crucial role in this neighborhood and the mix of children from ALL economic levels creates an academically rich and diverse community in which to learn. Sac High prides itself on being the #1 school in college placement for minority children. In fact more than 95% of our children were accepted into 4 year colleges last year and more than 50% of our athletes received full ride scholarships. The curriculum is rigorous and the instructors are top notch. Our new principal is a Harvard graduate who has recruited teachers from Harvard, Stanford, Cal Berkeley, and UCLA. Discipline is second only to academics and you will never walk into an unruly classroom, or find children inattentive, as this is a school for serious students who are college bound. I highly recommend Sac High for children of all races and economic levels.
I am a student at Sac High who was suppose to go to Kennedy. I chose Sac High because I know most of the 9th graders that go to Kennedy and I know that most of them are not serious about school. I wanted to go to a school where rowdy and disruptive students were not allowed because I have been going to school with children like that for a long time while in MLK and SES. At Sac High education is the most important thing and they have college recruiters checking out our grades at least once a month. As a 9th grader I have already been scouted by Stanford, Oregon, & CAL because I have a 3.8 gpa. I have also been recruited by all of the HBC's, San Jose, and San Diego State. I can enjoy school knowing that I will definitely be offered a scholarship to a school that can help me achieve my goal to be an environmental attorney.
My son entered the 9th grade academy, and Im really impressed with the school. The teachers motivate students. I really like that they use uniforms and enforce the rule. The counselors are great and have constant communication with the parents.
I have a student in who is attending the "School of Fine Arts". This school is a little deceptive when advertising their programs. There are not any drama classes, music classes, nothing to do with the fine Arts. With the exception of "drawing" The school advertised free uniforms, free lab tuition for low income students which it was a way to get your student enrolled in their school. Yes I can admit the teachers and staff prepare our students for the college world, although reviewing the states test results, it's like comparing apples to oranges. How can one Pass the exit Exam in 10th grade, and then later score below in the Standarized Testing. I've invested and wasted several hundred dollars in transportation, uniforms, and my student has not accomplished anything. I was better off having my student attend our local high school (with probably better results).
I am currently a junior at Sac High in the small school of La and Public service. Sac High is an amazing school for a student who wants to excell with tools given by sac high to succeed and achieve thier dreams and life long goals. My experience at sac high has been a phenomenal one all 3 years. Throught Sac high i have had the ability to meet with prominment figures of this country for example Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sec. of education under Barack Obama Arnie Duncan, and the daughter of the phenmonal Mratin Luther King Berniece King. Iv'e maintained a 3.6 GPA while playing 2 sports with 2 AP classes, that I know will get me far and into my dream school UCLA, Stanford, and Columbia. Sac have has taught me very important things. Sa high is an amazing school for any student who wants to succeed.
I am now a junior at Sac High. Class of 2011. My years at that school so far has been incredible. I love the classes I have every year and I have been holding down a 3.9 gpa since freshman year. I love the close relationships with my priciple because he always knows whats going on. He notices little things you wouldnt thinkhe would with a scool that big with that many students. Like I'll be walking down a hall or something and all you hear is his voice saying,'Hey! Why were you absent yesturday?' you would hear that alot coming from him becauses he really pays attention to his students and really knows them and there situations. He will randomly ask people about there grades and what they need to do to make then better.. He encourages people everyday to finish strong and keep going full force.. MEHS all day!!
This school has been the perfect fit for my student. The advisory class they attend each day has motivated him into wanting to succeed and attend a University. He has been able to get assistance in ALL subjects when needed. The teachers DO care about the students and most go above and beyond the teachers at other schools my children have attended. My dealings with the administration have so far all been to my satisfaction and they seem to be very consciencious.
I attended Sac High. The courses must have been watered down as I passed the courses easily. Now that I am in enrolled at UC Davis I have found out that my skills are not what I thought that they were. The remedial courses that I am now taking are nothing like the courses that I took at Sac High. When I asked my former teacher why, the answer was 'you got into college'. I would rather have been held accountable for the information I was supposed to know.
This is the best school you can send your child. Im a loving, caring, mother that is very serious when it comes down to grades and school stuff and i must say im always impressed and never surprised because in my mind ive always had high expectations for this school.
I'm a graduating senior this year and all tho I've had my little tiffs with the administration on more than one occasion, this really is an excellent school. This really is a college preparatory school. The reason I say that this is an above average school is because they really do go above and beyond when it comes to support to make sure that you not just go to college but succeed.
I have a daugther who is a attending Sac High for the second year, all she does is talks about the school and everything that goes on there. She was able to go to New York this year to help open a charter school there. Her G.P.A. has jumped it is 3.65 now. That because she wants to go there and enjoys all of her teachers. You can be average at any school but Sac does not accept average.
This year was the first year for my grandchildren whom I enrolled in the MEHS school. Both of them have done very well. The teachers are interested in the children. I like the powerpoint every week and it helps to e-mail the teachers and get a response. I find that this is so effective and I can nip what ever problem there is right away. The principal of health sciences took some juniors to southern California to look at campuses there, my grandaughter who aspires in the medical field was very impressed with UCLA this gives her a goal. Thank you Mr.D. I appreciate Sacramento High in keeping my child safe. I took them out of another school because of the fighting and atmosphere, I do not get the reports of the same at Sacramento High School. Thank you Kevin. Winnie Rose
I have a 16 y.o. at Sacramento High School and he is doing fantastic. He talks of going to college often and is encouraged by the students who have already been accepted into 4 year Universities. I feel good, as a parent, knowing my son has goals. And with the help of Sacramento High School he will meet his goals academically and socially.
I have a grandson that goes to Sac Hi and I feel that it is number 1. This school is for young people that want to learn and get ready for college. The teachers work with the parents to help the children. Parents involvement is very important for the young people at this school. My daughter is very much involve with Sac hi. My younger grandsons goes to PS7 and are doing great. Thank God for Kevin Johnson and his dream. If a child wants to learn and you care about their education PS7 and Sac Hi. Paula Shelton
I graduated from Sac High last year. Lame leadership, some solid teaching and no extra activities except in the arts. It's not any better than when it was a SCUSD school.
My son's education has been enriched by this school. What St. Hope has done here has been amazing. The school is divided into several 'small schools', allowing children to elect a course of study focused around their interests and goals. It's like a college. The school emphasizes college readiness. However, like most public supported schools, it lacks the resources to provided start of the art equipment and facilities for the children. The level of parent involvement is not as great, given the type of community that the school is housed in. But I wouldn't trade this one for my neighborhood school! Lots of support for kids from teachers who really do care! Amazing!
