Amazing school and staff! They are fortunate to have an amazing principal with Tovi Scruggs. My 16 year old, a Junior has attended since 9th grade, he has had a great experience with some wonderful teachers who really care about their students and has made amazing friendships. I'm not sure about the api rating as my son and his friends and teammates have averages from 3.5 - 4.2. the school is every diverse and everyone is welcome and treated fairly.

Both of my children attended SLZ . Graduated in 2009 & 2010 . I have to say I was an involved parent and the results were Great! The Counselors were great and listen to both of my children about their wants for a great education. The teachers were accessable and stayed connected with my students and myself.. The staff was great with communicating. The result is I have one college graduate and will have another in May from Top Colleges. P.S. Coach Wright, Mrs. Hart & Mrs.Worm are the best staff ever!

This year the fights have gone down, in a perspective of a student that has gone there for now my third year. The teachers there aren't just ordinary teacher, but they build strong relationships with their students to help them achieve their goals and become successful. The extra curricular after school are also diverse. There are MANY after school activities and during school activities to participate in. This school not only provides a safe environment, but also a fun one. Those who attended, past tense didn't get to get to know the school better. In ANY High School there are problems that go on. But at SLz there have made many positive changes. San Lorenzo High School is a place for a High School Experience and you won't know until you come.

Because our teachers are always looking out for their students and they always want to help us trying to find away for us to have a better environment of study. Teachers even use their pay checks to get some materials for us.

slz is a good school but it could use some improvement. Some of the people are wonderful while others aren't, but its like that everywhere. The good ones outweigh the bad. Overall good school!

I am most happy with the music program. Ms. Cooley does an excellent job of cultivating behavioral and musical discipline. I am so disappointed about the poor test scores. I would like to know what is the source of this problem and what is being done to correct it. The staff appears to respond appropriately to disciplinary issues. I really like the report card nights which give parents a chance to meet and speak to the teachers during evening hours. I like the fact that students are required to take a full term health class. Thank you.

I currently attend San Lorenzo High School. I'd like to say that this is an amazing school. Our teachers are extremely dedicated and they care about their students. They are always there for encouragement and support and many of us feel like we can turn to them when we have a problem. The one thing that distinguishes our school from any other is our diversity. We are a uniquely diverse school. All students work together in our classrooms to show the unity that the diverse cultures bring. We all learn from each other. Our administration and ASB leadership class are amazing. They do so much for our school and all for the purpose of uniting everyone together. Our school must not be judged on our API scores and the reputation that we have been given throughout the years. We are much more than a 'ghetto' school.
