I have sent two daughters to EAHS. Both received quality education. Both were involved in sports and clubs. Both are now in college and are looking forward to having successful careers. The one thing that has helped them the most were the relationships they were able to build with their teachers. Though the hated doing the SASE they comment from time to time just how helpful it was for them when they got to college. Go Eagles!!!

I have been a parent at Alvarez for the last 4 years and I like the way you feel when you walk the campus and the kids are so nice and the staff are super people. The staff really care about their students and them getting the education that will take then on in their lives. I'm so thankful that my grandson was able to go to this school.....with a population of about 2500 student on campus the school dose a great job with them and making them feel safe with all that is outside, there in the world today........Thank you staff at Everett Alvarez High School for being there for our students.

It was with great uneasiness and anxiety that we agreed to send our daughter to Alvarez for High School. Coming from a very small and close knit private school we were afraid of social influences. Our daughter had an awesome freshman year! She finished at the top of her class having taken the most challenging curriculum for a freshman, which included classes such as Biology, French, Leadership, and Gate English. We were proud of her academic commitment when she elected to only play one sport to ensure she could keep up her 4.023 GPA. This year she is really looking forward to having new responsibilities in leadership, jumping forward to Honors Chemistry, and has elected to take on two sports. Kudos to her wonderful teachers who are always just an email away! If only more parents would step up to the plate and participate, this school would be top notch!

although this school might have a bad reputation with violence(which is not all that terrible like they make it sound), people dont usually talk about how good the education is here. I am a junior at EAHS and I think education is great as well as the teachers who dont only take interest in your education but as well as your well being, they help you in and out of school. this school is great!!

My son attended there for just over a year. I pulled him out because of the high level of violence on campus and low academic quality.

First off, I am a graduate of class 2004! I really honestly enjoyed my time at Alvarez I wish I could go back almost four years already and re-live some of the funniest and informational times of my life. From the worm friendly welcome announcements in the morning to the little 15 minute breaks to the entertaining always something to do lunch...to the wonderful staff and teachers that really care about us students and our future! I have been back one time since graduation and Everett Alvarez has changed but only for the better!

Although this school has gone through some major overhauls over the past few years, some things remain constant -- dedicated teachers, a diverse population, and a 'non-cliquish' atmosphere (even though students do have their groups of freinds, the various groups all seem to get along pretty well -- not a lot of the ostrasizing that goes on at other schools). Parental involvement is spotty -- about 10-15% show up for back-to-school night.

Our boy started Alvarez at the end of last year. I cannot express how dramatic the changes have been to his overall performance (grades, extracurricular, sports, attitude, team work) since attending Alvarez. We have 2 more boys attending EA next year and we know they will be in good hands. We look forward to it actually. Thank you Alvarez! Coach Hernig has been an amazing inspiration to our boys. Thanks!

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.
