Gabrielino is a very good school! There's a waiting list to get into this school because of its academic reputation and it's small size. There's a lot if parent involvement which gives it a private school feel without the additional cost. Students are successful and have many opportunities to excel in business, art, science, music, sports, speech etc. my children attended and were very well prepared for college (UC campus). The staff take pride in their students and their school. Our community takes pride in Gabrielino. Come by and visit and you'll feel the Tongva spirit!

Gabrielino is an excellent school. The students are motivated, the school grounds are safe and clean, and the students are challenged academically. The principal appears to be setting a great example, as I have seen her and her staff at several events (academic events, Speech and Debate, sporting events, etc.) It's clear that the entire school community (administration, counselors, students, teachers, coaches, staff, parents) all work closely and take pride in this educational environment. As a parent whose children have attended San Gabriel Unified schools since kindergarten, I can say that even though SGUSD may be small, it is mighty. And "Gab", as the pinnacle of their experience, is a great way to end this experience as they prepare for their futures. Gab is still one of the Best HS in the US (Silver) by US News and World report. (156th best in California, 769th in the Nation) Go, Eagles!

Gabrielino seems to be proud of the 246th US News HS ranking. Look closely, it is not that impressive knowing other HS in the region mostly ranked higher. Although it is unfair to compare with SM, Arcadia, SP, or TC, still Gabrielino comes behind SGH, Alhambra, Arroyo, Monterey Park with the same demographic characteristics, making GHS one of the lower ranking HS in the region. Also notice that a handful of Gabrielino graduates actually go on to descent colleges. I don t think the school is bad. The members that sit on the SGUSD school board just have to do a better job to ensure Gabrielino stays competitive and strong. Some board members are incapable and some are career politicians that don t have a vision or clue of how to make a better school. Hope the election will bring in some fresh blood to flush out the system.

I would like to say that this school's learning environment is very nice. There is not really anything in the school or classrooms that can negatively affect how the students learn. Some teachers are better than others, but most of them are pretty good at teaching and have a lot of patience. This school is extremely competitive, academically and in athletics. Being in a sport in this school will teach you many things and provide an unforgettable experience. Some say that for a high school, Gabrielino is tiny, but I see this as a positive attribute on Gabrielino. This allows students to bond and know people more easily and we get to feel more like a family, than just random people. This school is still kind of new and is constantly growing. What I'd really like to see added into this school is a swimming pool. Oh, and the food is important. Sure there are snacking stores available for students to buy at for lunch, but the lunch that they serve is not the greatest. Gabrielino recently changed their pizza, and after trying it for myself and hearing it from a lot of people, it tastes like cardboard. Their best lunch, in my opinion, is the teriyaki bowl. It usually never dissapoints.

You will give a 5 stars for Extracurricular Activities if your child/children participate in the Speech and Debate team. The Speech Team is the jewel of GHS.

We definitely took another look at this school after it was extensively remodeled. Nicely done and community recently voted to approve funds for new buildings, etc. Teachers are highly credentialed and are very involved with students. Alumni have done well and give back to the school with their time. Great sports, fun parents, (huge) Speech and Debate team called the Screaming Eagles which placed 5th in the Nation. Changed our kid into a butterfly.

My son went to this school, class 2003. The teachers, are great, the admit staff is great. The commumity seems to take pride in this school, partly because it is a new campus. The music department rocks! We are now in Alhambra, and my daughter wants to go back to this area so she can attend this school. I also know that the parent involvement is strong at this school, just check out the parent pep club, they rock too!

Being such a young school (established in 1994), it is amazing what a reputation Gabrielino High School has established in a matter of a decade. The school is not only an architectural marvel, it has one of the America's largest and best speech and debate teams, world-class facilities and excellent teachers who care for their students. Although most parents are little involved in the school's activities, students always seem to take the initiative in organizing events. Gabrielino High School is also remarkably diverse. The administration, as I have seen it, is one of the most dedicated. The former principal, Dr. Gene Murphy, who passed away recently, dedicated a good portion of his career in the upbringing of this school.

Academic programs are outstanding. The staff really cares about the students. Test scores are strong and continue to get stronger. There are various curricular choices for students of all levels. Discipline is under control. Beautiful campus. Outstanding Superintendent and Principal. Highly recommended!

Gabrielino High is truely a remarkable school, from their API scores, to their great speech & debate program, technology clubs, drama department, extra curricular activities and so on. Teachers on campus are able to reach out to their students more because it is such a small campus. Dr. Murphy, the school principal is a generous, caring and great man. The faculty at this school takes great pride in educating & caring for the students here at Gabrielino.

The school's best program is the speech and debate team. It is by the far the best in the area. The school also has very nice facilities b/c it is new! The best teachers are the AP and honors English teachers. These usually are the experienced and seasoned ones. It is not the best at sports though.

As a former teacher at GHS, I can say that this is a truly amazing high school! Its leadership is excellent, creating a vision for a school that is highly successful. The teachers are incredibly dedicated, the school is small enough that students are not lost in the crowd, and there really is a sense of family among the students and staff. A truly wonderful school--it should serve as a model for other high schools!

Great academic programs and sports programs. There is moderate parent involvement and everyone is generally nice. The band and the debate teams are the more well known programs at that school.

Great school with a good speech and debate team. This school does not have the best sports team, but its academic activities are superb.

My son is currently a sophomore at Gabrielino. We are very pleased with the quality of instructors, the number and variety of electives, and the new school grounds. This school has really improved over the last ten years.

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.
