This is a good school if you are an involved parent. Don't expect the staff/administrators to reach out, you as a parent need to reach out. The school is definitely getting better, but still much room for improvement. Principal Garcia is making a difference, glad to see some great parents as well! Keep up the good work Inderkum.

I think the people who said "don't send your child to this school" is irrelevant. They must of came when Interkum was a horrible school, but now it's a fantasic! My cousins daughters graduated with high honor roll, even my 2 daughters! the education over there is wonderful, send your child to this school and you won't regret it.....

Never send your Child here. Horrible School. Horrible Staff. Students don't care about their success. Horrible school. Id rather be dead then think about it. - student

The school, overall, is a fantastic environment physically being a fairly new facility with access to the public library and the AR Jr college facilities. When my daughter went there, we had excellent coaching staff and support. When a problem arose, the teacher was more than willing to meet with us. I find most the teachers younger, but energetic and enthusiastic unlike some of the older schools with teachers (like my son's HS) where the teachers have been there for 20-30 years and are burnt out. The downfall is when admin or teachers tell a student they are responsible for themselves (in prep for college, yadda, yadda) I am so tired of hearing this. When we come to you to ask for help or with a problem, we come with need. I still score Inderkum in the excellent category.

well inderkum is a well grounded school. it has great programs for all students. the teachers are all excellent at teaching and observing the students learning environments. they make sure that all students are comfortable in there classrooms. inderkums systems and just how everything works in general are really great and i reccommend this school to any students. this school is one of a kind and i love it with all my heart.

This school has some of the few teachers that still care about the student they have some good programs such as link crew, leadership, and sports. The administration has taken some blows in recent years like going from four counsellors to two. New staff that does enough to stay on top of a situation. Also replacing teachers that students learned from and keeping the ones that they didn't learn anything from. Yet behind the lack of communication from the staff they're super friendly and attentive the janitor will rat you out if he finds you ditching. It's also so diverse and easy to get along that almost everyone knows each other..


Posted April 11, 2012

The teachers are great and have helped me succeed in all of my classes. The administration on the other hand is completely ridiculous. They are always rude to my parents and I. The new policies they put in this year lower student morale and are the reason a lot of my friends have transferred to different schools. For instance, the tardy policy, students get in more trouble for being tardy to class than for ditching class. The students are friendly and cooperative. The campus is pretty nice too. Thank go for the awesome janitors.


Posted January 17, 2012

Where do I start ????? The parents website is never current I have e-mailed every single teacher and not 1 has responded to me with my concerns with my daughters grades none of the teachers have ever called me or tried to reach out to me when it comes to my daughters grades I'm not in any way making exuses for my child she is also responsible for her work but really not 1 teacher can reach out as just being concerned ? I have decided that home school might just be a better option for me At least I know work is being done I'm very disappointed in the teachers at this school

Beautiful facility, $52.4 million when it was constructed in 2004. Teachers are for the most part professional and caring. Several however are an absolute nightmare to deal with and are not even liked by their peers. Principal is not as good as previous ones, control seems to be the reason he was put in place but I'm not sure to control what. I wouldn't say Inderkum has any more or less than the typical problems that can be created by kids and their parents. Previous VP/AD was a disaster and former AD was reinstated to clean up the mess. Football is king at school (10 varsity coaches, three teams total). Baseball and softball are the stepchildren of the school and district. Paid for umpires only for 10/11 season. Hats, uniforms and balls were paid for at Inderkum by parents and fundraisers. Varsity and JV baseball each had only one coach, community is starting to support baseball better though. Academics range from outstanding to poor depending upon parent and student proactivity. Many kids live outside of school boundary and should be attending Grant or Natomas, a sore spot with local community. Constant turnover in the superintendant's office, slow responsiveness.

Any post regarding administration which was written before the 2010-11 school year should not be considered since all those positions are filled with new people who are doing an incredible job!

Best School in the region, beats non-city schools by miles! Great institution, 2nd Most Diverse school in the nation!( Natomas High is 3rd) Parents should consider this school over ANY charter school, definitely THE Best!

I agree with one of the other parent's assessment of the administration. They never return your phone calls. We finally have to appear on locations just to have a conversation. Email messages left on power school are generally not responded to, I have to follow-up with a phone call. The school environment is good, but it take an enormous amount of effort to keep the lines of communication open with councilors and teachers. I rarely receive mail from the school.

My son attends Inderkum and I have been pleased. He has been on the principals list every year that he has attended, he has received many awards as well. But the key is that he has a full understanding that high school has a purpose....to get into college. Sure there are mice...there are mice in all schools. The teachers vary. Some awesome, some not so great but overall I have been pleased. He has excelled in math and English. I love that the school is diverse and my son has had no problems with fighting, arguing, etc.. I am moving back to the Bay Area but if I were staying, I would send my other two children to Inderkum without a problem. Mrs. King is a jewel!

As it is with most things, the majority of reviewers are passionate about the school in one direction or the other. The truth lies somewhere in the middle. Is the school perfect? Of course not. Neither is it the rat hole that some make it out to be. It is a modern inner city school with all the inherent problems that pertain thereto. It is also an extremely diverse student body with little or no racial problems. What racial problems we have are mostly within ethnicities, not between them. We have a yo0ung administrative team who are doing a better job each day, and a young impatient staff who wants all the problems cured immediately. Patience is a virtue that we all need to practice, and Inderkum will assume its place with the best high schools in the city

I graduated from Inderkum in 2007, and I have to say that it is a great school. Parents who say that teacher's do not help, that is entirely untrue. If students look for teachers help they will help you. They always ask for questions during class and are there after school and during prep periods. I am glad I attended this school, I learned so much and have had such impressive jobs that I would never have dreamed of having, and it is because of the great education that they gave. Right now College is so easy, and I owe it all to this school. The real people to blame if things do not go well is the school district, these teacher's do with what they have and also the level of dedication that students have to learn.

Inderkum High School administration department on a scale of 1-10 is a 4. They do not return phone calls. When meetings are stetup they are always late. Thy try to hide the challenges from the school district. The district office should look into the operations.

The school is wonderful and the teachers, staff and administration are great. This is one of the best schools I have been too. I love this school and would not want to leave.

Excellent school with excellent administration, staff and teachers! The building itself is 'green' with environmental appreciation and high standards. The students are inclusive in community and focus on academics, honors, athletics, performing arts, science, math, college / technical prepatory and overall take 'Tiger Pride' in themselves and their school! For a new school going into it's 5th year (I think), it has been a 'process of growth and development' for high standards, good community relations and overall good learning environment for its students with excellent teachers, staff and administration!

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.

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.
