My twins are graduating from San Jacinto High next June and I know they've had a quality education. We are actually located in Hemet, but my husband and I made arrangements to have them continue to go to SJHS. My sister's son goes to Hemet High, which we have learned is not as good as San Jacinto. Not sure about West Valley High.
This is a standard high school with great students and teachers. My kids like going to this school and do well in their classes. I am a very involved parent who appreciates all that the teachers do. So many parents that I know are quick to blame the school for their child's problems, but I make sure not to do that. My kids are MY responsibility. I have had numerous conversations with teacher about my 3 kids' performance, and every time the teachers are great. The administration is nothing special, but having amazing administration and teachers is a hard combination to find. Bottom line: this school will be everything you want it to be if you are actually involved in your child's life. My son wishes there was a pool though *eyeroll*
I try and spread the word about this wonderful school (Academy) this is my child's 3rd year attending and I do truely believe it is the best middle school in the county. According to their test scores. I wish they offered High School because she would definitely be staying here. I drive about 25 minutes each way to get her to this school.
This most of the teachers at SJHS will go out of their way to help there students succeed.
well i was a student at san jacinto high its a very great school the teachers take the time to teach each student if ur child needs tutoring the teachers are willing to give up there lunch to tutor ur child....The supervisers are very kind they take there time to listen to your childrens problems.......i was having alot of problems with my grades but my teachers helped me improve alot.....The school is improving alot like the new buildings they have & they are planning to improve the rest of the high school......I had a great time at SJHS but i had to move if it was up to me i would've loved to stay there......There'z alot of great people there
My son just started this school, so far it's okay. Even though he is starting to get the 411 from the school. I will keep updating the school review.
im an ex student and i loved it there they try to get to know all there student and see what they need help on. the office staff is very nice and willing to help u work what ever out. teachers call home to give updates on ur kids behavor or home work status
i really like this school and there are many of brilliant teachers! even though the food isnt good they have a nice place to sit and talk to your friends or even eat the nasty food. It's a really nice school!!
the whole school is fantastic the teachers actually take there time to teach the asb well there just great
My Freshman year was pretty awesome. At the beginnig i thought the school was unsafe and that it needed lots of work. (construction) But as i got more involved in school, my grades improved, the teachers were very incouraging and supporting throughout the whole year. There wasnt that much violence like the previous years. The school is improving alot like teachers ,activities, curriculims,sports, teachings and the schools appearence is looking way better. Personally i have improved alot thanks to San Jacinto High. i Started from a 2.89 and finished with a 4.0.
I am very unhappy with this school. The school's main priority is sports and the academics are inflexible. This school is not safe at all either. If you are a parent moving into the southern California area, please move to Murrieta and Temecula for better public schools. If your teenager is looking for preparation for the future, you aren't going to get it here.
Teachers seem to be adequate, classes are decent. School is run down. My daughter has been there 6 months and is very unhappy. I wish I would have done more research on this school, would have chosen somewhere else to buy a house. Considering home schooling. I feel guilty for making my daughter attend this school. The school's main focus is sports.
My son participated in football and track. I found the sports activities to be adequate although improvement is needed. One of my children was in the chess club and enjoyed it. I felt that the music program was good and liked the sports programs although the selection of sports was very limited.
My son had a quality freshman year. Staff is heavily tasked, yet makes time to work with parents. All teachers worked very well with us, and were instrumental keeping my son on the right track. San Jacinto High offers an outstanding college jump start program through Mt. San Jacinto College. Our son will be taking Intermediate college algebra, and has the potential to graduate with an Associate Degree. Its a rough school, however the district seems to be commited to making it as safe a campus as possible. Son is excelling acedemically, playing football, loves school. I think that says it all
If you want you child(ren) to go into college choose another school, move if you have to.
This school has been going through many changes. There are strong teachers at the school that have provided excellent support and caring to my children that have attended. There could be more programs for gifted students but they do have an AP program.
I have 2 graduating seniors in the family this year, they have had a great expierence here @ San Jac High. The staff has been awesom with both children as well as all the parents involved within our family
I am proud to be a teacher at San Jacinto High School! I currently have a niece and a nephew attending. In the past, we have had five nieces and nephews here. Our site is under construction and is in the process of being remodeled. During the growth process - we have growing pains and I am constantly impressed with the maturity of the students and the patience of the teachers!
My son is now at San Jacinto and my daughter just left San Jacinto and on to college. I feel that San Jacinto is on a recovery mode. Past years have not been all that great. New district staff has started to focus on the issues that needed to be addressed. I feel that the next few years will be good for San Jacinto High. They have built more grammer schools and giving the high school a new face lift. Acadimics have also been addressed this year. I feel very confident that San Jacinto will be a geat school for our childen. Keep the good work up staff and District.
