My son is a sophomore at Mission High School. He is dyslexic/ADHD and entered his freshman year with an IEP in place. He has an excellent case manager who actually teaches his studies skills class. The school is on a block schedule so the studies skills class meets 90 minutes three times a week. For the most part, my son has been successful advocating for himself with his subject teachers. His safety net is the fact that his case manager meets with each of his subject teachers every two weeks to get updates about his progress and help advocate for his needs when his own efforts haven't met his needs. His loves his school and, besides the basketball team, his favorite things are being in small classes (average 17 students/class) and access to a quiet room to take or finish tests and homework.

Mission High School is a great well-rounded school. My son has thrived here. MHS really cares about each student's education and well being. Willing students succeed here. Teachers are accessible and they communicate with you on how your child is doing. Kids keep busy because there are so many things to do and get involved. We love Mission HS.

We couldn't be happier with Mission High School! Our son is a freshman and is thriving at Mission. The teachers have a thoughtful curriculum and keeps our son interested in classes. The updates through the school loop is outstanding. The sports program is disciplined and creates a strong sense of family with the team. Back to school night was done well as we had mini parent/teacher conferences with all of our son's teachers.

My daughter is thriving at this school. The teachers are the best I have ever seen (and I've seen a lot of teachers). She is safe, happy, and feels like a part of the community after her first semester. I'm especially impressed by the resources this school has compared to other high schools.

Mission high school is one of the best high schools in California am only freshman but i have learned a lot. The school is more like a big family.The classes don't have more than 20 students and it's good.when I first went to mission I was not happy thinking that it was bad but now no one can change my mind. I love mission and am going to Stanford with a 4:0 from mission high,Plus AP classes are amazing there!!

We have a 9th grader at Mission and a 11th grader at Lowell, both great schools in different ways. Here are my impression FWIW. Mission class sizes are as low as 18 students, Lowell as high as 40+. Lowell, since it's bigger, offers a greater variety of classes and most are more challenging, Mission partners with City College to fill in the gaps and also grades students on personal achievement rather the curve, which gives them a much better chance to get into college. Both have AP classes, Lowell has more, but Mission encourages more students to take them who normally wouldn't. Much more financial support from the district and beneficiaries for Mission (no one has asked us for any money yet, a first!), but there's a dedicated, successful fund-raising parent and alumni group from Lowell. Surprisingly, advanced choir students at Mission are required to be able to read music, at Lowell they aren't. Mission wins on architecture, weather, transportation, location and student to faculty ratio. Lowell wins on academic reputation and performance. Both campuses are equally safe with dedicated staff, though Mission's makes more of an effort with more to prove.

i was jsut like the rest of you, i thought mission was this terrible school with bad kids, but it's not! it actually isnt! I live 5 blocks from Wash and i've always wanted to go there. When i got the letter that i got in mission, i cried. My sister told me to try mission out and if i end up not liking it, i can always transfer. So i tried out mission and i end up LOVING IT!! it's an amazing school! 2 weeks later i got a call from Wash saying i got accepted into there school and i had the chance to transfer. I ended up rejecting them. Rejecting wash was the BEST decision i had ever made! Mission is truly getting better! Try it out, and if you dont like it, you can transfer! but i promise you, YOU WILL LOVE IT! :D

Mission High school is the best school ever. Its diversity is the best thing of it, to know more about other cultures and places is what makes Mission amazing. All the people are friendly and also they always try to help each other out. Mission High is colossal....

I love Mission's Teachers. They're so cool and they always ready to help you out. Basically, teachers are the second family of the students. They always look up on you if you're doing well or not. So it's nice to have someone like that in a place like school.

My grandson is now studying 9th grade at Mission High School. I felt very bad when he couldn't get into Lowell, or lincoln, or Washington at first because he always get very good grades and high GPA in K-8. Now, I understand that we should not listen too much from other people. We should really take a step into the school touring before sending our kids there. Mission High is a very great school!! It's the best choice for kids, I think. It's a beautiful and safe neighborhood. There are small size classes and nice teachers. I suggest other parents can take chace to walk around this compus.


Posted September 5, 2009

At first, when I knew my son can not get admission to lincoln high, I felt very unsad. Fortunely, I decided to send my son to Mission High after the SF Unifie/consuloring's sugesstion. Now, I found out that Mission High even much much more better than Lincoln. It's a very safe enviroment. It's an excellent school for your kids to study there.

It is an excellent school. My daughter likes Mission High School more than Lincoln. It is a small class that the teachers can pay more attention. I hope some parents use eyes more than ears. Don't listen someone says Mission is not a good school, use your eyes to see what it is. It is an awesome school.

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.
