My son goes to the high school. He auditioned to get in. I am seriously considering taking him out. First off, it's way overcrowded. On parent teacher day I was horrified to see in my son's art class there were so many students that there were not enough seats for all of them. About a dozen kids literally had to stand in the back. Second, I've called on a few occasions and left message, once to my son'e counselor and another to front staff, and not ONCE have I received a call back from staff. My son has ADHD but tested into gate, but I see he is falling through the cracks more. Unless your child can fend for himself without a seat or attentive staff, then they too will fall through the cracks.

The campus is very nice, has a college feel. The office staff very friendly. My only concern about SCPA is that when I compared different middle school and high school API scores within the last 5 yrs in Southeast San Diego, Paradise Hils and South Bay, so many scored a lot higher than SCPA! I compared all of them with SCPA (last 5 yrs) and I was disapponited. SCPA has excellent Language scores, but their chemistry, math, science, biology, physics and algebra scores were really bad compared to other SDUSD middle and high schools. I couldn't believer that. Sure, your child is getting exposure to the arts (singing, performing, music etc...) quite a benefit, but unless your child (or you) really expect your child to become a professional actor or musician, is it worth such low scores in all other academic areas? My kids want to be doctors and engineers. SCPA's arts program was appealing, but in the end it was jointly decided that they needed a school with strong math and science scores. They now go to another school on University Ave that has EXCELLENT math & science scores. In the long run we feel that will benefit their long term career goals and we're happy with the decision.

If I could rate this school I'll do it with zero, my daughter had the most horrible time there, she was victim of bullying there. If your are thinking to send your children there think twice, they have wonderful artistic teachers but have the worst criteria to act to protect the students. I am not the first parent to have to remove my child from SCPA as a result of inaction about bullying. SCPA throwing away a talented, har working student and protect people that does not deserve this privilege . I will never recommend SCPA. I could not do it in good conscience.

I can now say retrospectively that SCPA is a very good school. As a parent, having seen firsthand, my children experience other SD city schools and now appreciating what SCPA has to offer.

This school is terrible. My son went there. Most of the children are mean and cruel, in the middle school. The high school might be good, but the middle school is terrible. The teachers act like they do not have enough time for there students, they just make them do busy work all day, without even paying attention, students are on they're phones. They do not deal with issues well. They waited over 3 months to deal with a threat issue with my son. They need to hire new vice principals. Honestly TERRIBLE. They are not well trained. They did not even solve the problem with my son. Terrible school. I wish I could rate it ZERO STARS.

I went here for 6th and 7th grade and i did not like it . the teachers are rude and they don't care about the students. they are always sitting on there laptops complaing how we don't listen. they don't interact with the children what so every. they expect us to get what they teach . then when they give us the test the stuff on there is not what we learned. I would not recommend this school to anybody because they don't give the students the help they needed. And the teachers give referrals for walking to class

This school is so awesome. I'm glad that I am attending this school. There are the kindest people at this school.

My daughter has attended SCPA since 6th grade. While she enjoyed it, I think they could have done a bit more for the Jr. High kids with getting them ready for 8th grade auditions. I asked about this from the day she set foot on the campus. Now in 8th grade, and having not passed the audition to the High School part, I fee this school did little to help me prepare my child for the high school auditions. Not to mention in the middle of the first 6 weeks of school they "cold" transferred her 3 times in one week without warning due to "budget cuts." However after research API score and such for high school, I finally got my daughter to be comfortable with not attending SCPA High School next year. I am sending her to more traditional High school setting and I told her she will thank me later! In regards to the previous poster's concerned about the misbehaving students. Yes I agree, however it's not necessarily the school's fault but is moreso the parents of those student's fault!!

My son attended 6th grade and had significant problems with the children and the staff. There were only two 6th grade teachers that were well organized and able to handle the several kids they taught. I sat in several classes and was extremely disappointed. There was a large amount of behavioral problems with the children in Jr High. Every time I came to office there were always several kids in trouble from the Jr High. Vice principal in charge of Jr High discipline communicated well but I felt made some poor discipline decisions.We applied to this school specifically for the music program. Music program for 6th grade was not what I had expected from a performing arts school.. It was very disorganized partly because of several uninterested children in the music program. We spent a large amount of time speaking with the superintendent regarding school problems. I would not recommend sending your kids to this school if they are attending Jr. High. High school may be better but I am unsure since none of our children attended the high school.

I went there for six years and will never forget any of them. I met some of the most inspirational teachers and people i think i will ever meet in my life. Great school for discovering yourself and learning how to appreciate learning and thinking in a different perspective. Even when i wasn't doing so well in my classes i always had support and help from teachers who never lost faith in me. For the students who truly want to have a future in any career related to the arts and highly recommend perfecting your skills at this school. I don't know where i would be without growing up there.

My child entered this year as a 9th grader. She loves her electives and loves her fellow students. Artistic kids feel right at home at SCPA and everyone is very friendly. We love the P.E. Options and rich elective choices. We live 17 miles away and depend on transportation and gladly pay the fee asked by SDUSD. SCPA is well known for drama, music and dance. I feel the school should recognize and showcase their Fine Artists more often.

My daughter has been going there for three years now. We were concerned because she was coming in from a Montessori learning environment. Overall it's been a good experience. She loves the school and is at the top of her science class.

I am very dissapointed at this school.I just took my 6th grade daughter out,because she was falling behind in all subjects and only one of the teachers called me to let me know that was happening all the other ones didin't even bother letting me know.Seriously how far do students have to fall before they start to care or get any help???

SCPA is an incredible school where students are free to be themselves without the fear of judgement. To attend a school where each individual is unique and talented in their own way is amazing.

My daughter has never enjoyed school more. The performing arts and extra activities offered are wonderful.

It is the best arts school, most likely, in the world. Nothing can beat was SCPA has already done, and they are still going further. Didnt think that was possible.

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.
