The school district wisely brought in a new Principal Kurt Madden. He is currently evaluating the academics, athletics and performing arts to decide where he can make changes as early as Spring 2009. The renewed effort of competition to retain top performing students and attract same is underway. My daughter has done well there for the past four years and will go to a college of her choice because she got out what she put into the school. Highly recommend this school!

My fourth child is now almost finished at Scripps Ranch High. Like any other school, there are some teachers that are better than others. I believe if your child wants to succeed, there's a way. It's not all dependent on the school. My kids all got into UC schools and one is going to Claremont-McKenna. I don't like the 'stigma' attached to the private schools. I believe that Scripps Ranch High prepared my kids for college. The sports programs are great. The school is very crowded, but so is San Diego. I would recommend this school to anyone.

The diversity of teachers and faculty is non existent. If your child is not an honor roll kid he will get lost in the shuffle. If you are involved in sports and are not a part of the ' booster club' good luck on having your child playing a role in sports. I am glad my child transferred to a better academic school that cares about the average kid.

I have lived in Scripps Ranch since 1989. When the high school opened up, my neighbors kids were getting a sound education. But my son is a senior now and my daughter is a sophomore and the quality of the school both academically and athletically has declined significantly. Some parents are still under the impression that this public school is giving our kids a sound education. I can not disagree more strongly. I have had numerous problems with teachers not qualified to teach advanced placement classes still teaching. I am pulling my daughter out this school year.

My daughter goes here & it appears to be an okay school but there is basically no diversity in the teachers / admnistration in a city where diversity is so very high. I would suggest getting teachers / adminstration there to support the diversity of the people.

I have one son who just graduated from SRHS, headed to a top private college in California, the other son will be a sophomore. Scripps is an excellent school with great admin, teachers, great diversity of students, lots of activities, etc. Only negative is that there is almost no diversity among the teachers and counselling staff.

The academics are great. My child loves most of his teachers and the classes he is in. There is alot of availabilty for my child to participate in sports. Parental involvment is a little low. Over all a great school.

Parent involvement is superb, very strong pta. Sports and other extra curricular activities big part of schools tradition while also holding very high acedemic standards

Sadly I've seen a marked decline since my son started there. He's a Junior now and unfortunately I feel that there's not much going on for kids not in sports. There are few academic teams, no forensics or debate teams, art club? This is not how an affluent suburban school is supposed to be. Teachers deeply affected with Ennui! Hopefully the new principal can pull it together.

I have had two children attend SRHS for their entire high school experience. The quality of their education was a typically median California secondary level. Despite 3.0 level grades, their basic skills (reading, writing, and mathmatics) were never improved or addressed (other than cosmetic 'read 15 minutes of each class' programs). The counseling department is worthless if your child is not at the extremes of the academic spectrum.There are some excellent teachers at SRHS, but they operate in an environment where state test scores rather than preparing the students for academic advancement. No better or worse than Hoover High School.

This will be our 1st year with this school. Clean campus, roomy center courtyard, positive encounters with staff so far.

Academic programs are the better than any school in the district. The teachers are wonderful but they do infact give way to much homework! Music programs, art, esp. Sport programs are funded very well. Parent involement is very big at this school. All the parents esp in sports know each other or of them. This school is a big family! it's overall a wonderful school!

Great School and Great Teachers, my kids came from another High School in the san diego area, and are doing really well with grades at scripps ranch. They like the cirriculum better at Scripps Ranch High School.

I highly recommend this school. We recently moved to the area and as a parent was concerned about the school my child would be attending as he had previously attended a 5 star school. My son's Chemistry teacher sends me, via e-mail, updates of my childs work and an agenda of the homework and of what is expected of my child for the week. My son also enjoys going to school, believe it or not.

Although they exist, there are too few teachers that stand out as 'good teachers.' There are too many that should not be teaching, and that damage student's future due to their incompetence in subject matter or inability to communicate. This may be more of an issue with California Schools rather than Scripps in particular. We were quite pleased with athletics, parental involvement and school spirit. Counselors were responsive and supportive. Classes were consistently too large. One of our children had a foreign language class that had 42 students and the administration would not split the class because if one student moved out, the resulting classes would have to be recombined by state mandate. Based on the experience of our three kids, classes of 30-35 are the norm. Safety from ridicule and scorn is a concern for any student that is socially immature.

Their are only two good teachers in all of Scripps Ranch High School. The security people do not seem to do their job. The principal is great and does a good job. The largest trouble is putting students in our school from Lincohn High. And they could have been sent to a school much closer to their school inside of bring their trouble to our school. The teachers are making the parents do their job, and they do not intrust the future of the students to be handled by the students, after all we are here to learn to handle our own lifes not turn everything over to are parents.

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.
