If you took out all of the gangster kids that attend this school, it would be great!
James Lick is far better of a school than I could have imagined. Many people give it a bad rep but it really is a fantastic place to learn. The teachers are all sincere and determined to help your child suceed. The new principal Vanderzee is a joy and brings a fresh attitude to a school that wasnt doing too good beforehand.
James lick is a good school because is small and teacher and parents now what the student are doing
It focuses mainly on every single student and help each individual get on the right track for college.
everything about the principal is great. they only things that should be done is to expel the small amount of gangsters that are left and add more classes that are WORTH it like AP Statistics, AP Computer Science, AP Psychology, French, Italian, Forensic Science, German, Algebra 3 AP, Macroeconomics, and a good marching band or Concert Band.
James Lick has improved so much in recent years due to their Principal Vandersee and other fine staff. I think their teachers are engaged and really care about the students. After major drug trouble at Independence and Piedmont Hills, my son ended up at James Lick as a last choice. As it turns out, It couldn't have been a better choice.
James Lick has been a wreck in the past, but now with all of the Renaissance Academy of Arts, Science, and Social justice students, it will surely improve.
James Lick is better than you may think. The teachers are dedicated to the students and do give homework. They even correct the homework with advice and comments included. I chose to send my sons there instead of another school. I will choose James Lick for my other children as well. As a parent, I'm part of the team that educates my children.
James Lick is not that great of a school. But if you have a chance of enrolling your kid in a better school the you better do it. It is probably one of the worst school is San Jose. The academics wasnt all that great either. My child barely got any homework at all. I automatically removed my kid from this school. The bottom line is this school isnt that good. There are many schools around san jose that a 5 times better that James Lick.
The teachers and administration continue to make a significant effort to identify student needs and determine methods to address these. The 'small school' atmosphere lends itself to a greater sense of unity among the students and faculty. The completion of the current sports facility upgrade (a major undertaking) should add a sense of pride to the entire James Lick High School community!
I love it! the teachers are great and really love the kids. Most of them teach our kids not because of money, but because they love them and want to see them succeed.
I have two children, one of which graduated from Lick in June. My child was in honors and advance placement classes and maintained as 3.5 GPA, while participating in afterschool sports. My remaining child is a Junior this year and loves every minute at Lick. The new administration team is wonderful and caring. They are attentive to each and every students needs, along with the teachers needs and desires. Music and Art are important to our school and the students strive to excel to their highest ability. There is nothing negative I can say about James Lick. Come see for yourself and stop listening to outsiders. James Lick High School is truly a 'Diamond in the Ruff'.
The school needs help funding wise and academic-wise. The teachers have great hearts but the school suffers from students who come in with a defeatist attitude.
James Lick may not be the greatest High School overall, but I learned a lot from its smart teachers.
