I am currently attending this school, as a freshman. It is a fun and great school. The IB program is a spectacular idea. The school is a bit dirty, but the staff and students there are wonderful. I suggest this school for those who would like to join the army because this school has a great ROTC program. They also have a Health/Nursing academy and a Biotechnology academy.

I am a former Student of Andrew Hill. AH has somewhat of a bad reputation but in general it has really good programs and isnt as scarey or brutal as the rumors speak. In fact I was reading recently Andrew Hill is a 'hidden gem' with more students of any HS in San Jose graduating and attending AND graduating college! I think that alone says alot!

Andrew P. Hill is a wonderful school. My daughter likes it so much. The teachers are really great, it seems like they really care about what happens to their students. I know in the past Andrew Hill hasn't been the best school in San Jose, but they sure have come a long way. Yeah, there are always a few fights among the students, but doesn't every school have fights? I always hear people talking bad about Andrew Hill as if the school was in the same situation 10 years ago, everybody should really give Andrew Hill a chance, after all their test scores have gone up a lot and they're working to make the school look nicer. Andrew Hill really is a great place.

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 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.
