I'm glad my husband and I made a wise decision moving to the Sacramento area a few months ago. We decided to put our son at LBHS.. At first I was hesitant and letting him explore the experience he love being there. He is a freshman and loves coming home with no or little homework. Everything is done at school and having him attending there has made him change academically drastically. He's raised his grades and increase his GPA.. I am so proud that my child is mentally happier being here..

Luther Burbank is the best school evaaaaaaaa! Yeaah! Go Titans. We are the best. PS; this is not from a Burbank student.


Posted September 13, 2012

Luther Burbank High School is the best kept secret in SCUSD! The school is structured in small learning communities which affords smaller class sizes, high accountability and it affords teacher and students to build respectful relationships with each other. The after school program is exceptional. Students and teachers work together to create a successful and challenging academic environment; work to encourage a culture of respect and service to the community. Students in the Law & Social Justice Academy are youth leaders in the community and provide invaluable services to many govt agencies and communnity based organizations through their dedication to community service. The ASB students capture the true spirit of self-discipline and dedication. They enhance the high school experience for all LBHS students. The after school Teen CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) program is the most robust and active Teen CERT program in the Sacramento area providing students the opportunity to train and deliver assistance during emergency situations. The students and adult leaders across the campus are truly dedicated to securing success for our community's youth. Go TITANS!

I graduated from there June 13, 1969, sixth season since opening September 1963. Already then the school was in trouble in more ways than one; last time I stepped foot on campus was March 31, 2000, felt like was walking into Folsom Prison, really scary!

Although this school is not the best school, I sincerely believe that it has progressed significantly throughout the years. I am currently a senior attending Luther Burbank High School. At first, I was hesitant to attend this school. However, I now strongly believe it was one of the greatest choices I've made in my school career thus far. Due to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, students now have the option to take rigorous and academically challenging classes. Not only has the academic classes improved, the community in the school itself has progressed. When I see the students, I see motivation. I see future leaders. This is also evident within the amount of new clubs and after school programs that are now available on campus because of the dedication of the students and caring staff that use their time to make it possible. In addition, I believe our unique diversity of students also contributes to the richness of this campus. Just because it isn't the best school doesn't mean that it will forever be handicapped. It doesn't mean that progression is impossible. Change can happen.

I was a student at Luther Burbank High School when it was an okay school. It has progressively gotten worse. The students that do manage to escape LBHS are grossly unprepared for college. I was in the AP program with a 3.7 GPA, and still needed to take remedial math courses in college. The AP courses were not challenging, and they chased away the good teachers. Do not send your children to this school, they will spend the rest of there adult lives playing catch-up.plus alot of Gang,Violence,Drugs etc... Dont Want Your Child Going To This Nasty Dirty School!

My husband and I attented the BTS Night on 9/24 and what a treat. Our son is a recent transfer who raised his GPA in order to get me to agree. I'm glad I did. The staff is young and full of energy. Their teaching style of the curriculum is on a level that my son can relate to. The diversity was wonderful.

Luther Burbank has the best after school program in the state. They really care about the kids. This school has become a model for what to do in an urban school.

LBHS has steadily improved over my 8 year tenure. The leadership is visionary, faculty is exemplary, and students are hard - working, happy and increasingly successful, in spite of being one of the lowest SED schools in the area. Now, LBHS is out of program improvement, all should be aware of what we've know for years.... LBHS is the best school in the disrict

Burbank has been struggling through to maintain a good name. As of now, it has a program of IB: International Baccalaureate. It's a two year program, challenging and training its students to prepare their minds to get ready for the better future, recognized by universities. Their hard work really does pay off. But back to Burbank, it's not what you think. Take a visit to the school, and it'd be like any other high school. Get to know what's Burbank actually about before trusting other people's words.

Luther burbank offers a great variety of sports including tennis, golf, football, track, and etc.. It's a student's decision wheter to be involved in the great programs available ot to be involved in trouble.

LBHS has the potential to be a great school. With such a diverse student population and the small learning communities, there are many opportunities available. However, the local community must support what is happening at the school. In addition, the poor socioeconomic statis of many of the kids is detrimental to their learning. These kids can achieve. All they need is the caring and guidance of the right kind of teachers.

My son is graduating in june 2005, I feel this has been a great school for my son. He has attending Burbank all 4 years. There is a great staff & the coaches at this school are fantastic. They have helped my son with everything from sports stuff to deciding on a college. Coach Heffernan really gets involved with the kids & I thank him daily for helping to guide my son. Any kid can benefit from going to Burbank they might not know it at first but in the end they will.

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.
