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".
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
