I am a current student to this school and to be honest it is a great school BUT! Theres some teachers who dont care about their students anymore and theres also some RUDE teachers. Also, theres more problems in this school this year more than the other years. Oh! And the staff members like deans and the counslors they will not really help you on anything they will make excuses ive been through that and ive been been fighting for a permit to transfer out this school they habent called my mom for the meeting nor did they give me a paper to request a permit until yesterday.

My son attended San Gabriel High School and graduated in May 2013. This is a great school. Everyone is committed to helping your child succeed from the students that help one another to the principal Mr. Schofield, who stands in front of the school each morning telling the students to "hurry up & don't be late".

Excellent school. The teachers are very committed to the student's future. As a student in San Gabriel, I learned much more than in San Gabriel than the other neighboring High Schools.

Being a student at San Gabriel High School has been a life-changing experience. The teachers love what they teach and are always willing to help students to succeed in both their personal and academic lives. The educators here are willing to sacrifice their personal time to help motivated student. In my four years here, all the teachers, faculty, and administration have been approachable. I have been able to develop good relationships with these people. San Gabriel's principal, Jim Schofield makes himself accessible to the student body and is very responsive to our input. The student body is very accepting of racial, cultural, and personal differences. The student body is primarily Asian and Hispanic, but interracial friendships and school activities are prominent. I have to admit, there are some ignorant, disrespectful students here, but that is to be expected at any high school and easily avoid this kind of crowd here at San Gabriel. The Class of 2011 has been very successful in terms of college admissions. For example, a handful of our students have been accepted to Stanford and Harvard and a over 20 have been accepted by UCLA, including myself.

SGMHS is a 'diamond in the rough'. It is a small school with a 'family-like' feel that encourages academic excellence, community service, and assists in the develoment of fine young women who go on to succeed in life. The Principal, teachers, and staff are super dedicated and go out of their way to help the students excel. The Principal is extremely approachable and open to suggestions. He has done a tremendous job in improving the appearance of the school. The whole interior has been repainted, the restrooms and sports field have been completely redone; the auditorium floor has been replaced, AND the school even has smart boards! There are additional improvements in the works, and I believe we will continue to see SGMHS as a 'shining star'

I m very happy to have my daughter at San Gabriel Mission High School for two years, because they have excellent Staff and Teachers. Teachers plan, and prepare lessons, using classroom presentations or individual instruction to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics, or English. Teachers also grade papers, prepare report cards, and meet with parents and school staff to discuss a student s academic progress or personal problems. Mission is a Family Catholic School dedicated to opening young minds to the powerful combination of spirituality and academics. Hector Guerrero

San Gabriel High School is a great school I am a Senior and at time the school may have it's ups and downs the teacher are always there to interact with the students. And that is very hard to find in a school because most school focus on grades this and grade that. San Gabriel focus on grades and making friends all at the same time

I am a student at SGHS and I am a freshman and also in the basketball team. At first you think that SG is a bad school but you get to know the people there. The atmosphere is good and now these days it is way to crowded to get into a fight at lunch and plus the staff is good there.

I think it's a wonderful school. It has more honors and AP classes than most in the area. It's campus is beautiful and newer. It may have a bad reputation but I don't see why. It is an overall great school. I reccomend it.

You see, I am a student at SG, and I think that it's a great school! No matter what other people think. If the students think that it is good, then it is good! Parents do not go to SG, so they don't know what it is like. So maybe their children aren't doing so well, that's their fault. Don't blame it on the school just because your kid is not that smart. I for one, am doing very well, that's because I actually set my mind to it,

SG is a great place to study. The teachers work really hard. The main problem with the school is the lack of parent involvement. They don't do anything and rarely push their kids outside of school. All the 'good schools' in the area have students who go to prep classes after regular hours.

Though this school was once considered one of the worst schools in the neighborhood, it is becoming better. However, students are split by two very separate mediums: the extreme overachievers and the mediocre I-don't-really-care students. It is because of this large split that test scores are lower than they should be. There are many programs for those who are not on track, but not many for those who are on track and beyond to become better. However, students here have the ability to attend Ivy League colleges and UCs and is a decent place to get your education. Ignore the reputation San Gabriel holds. It offers more Advanced Placement and Honors classes than most schools in the area and most teachers are great. Extracurriculars are abundent but the school lacks parent involvement. If a student wants to learn, it houses all the facilities needed for that student to succeed.

Academics at this school are the poorest in the neighbourhood. When I hear that a child attend San Gabriel High, I know that (despite his or her grades), he or she will have substandard English and Math skills.
