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.
i'm a new student coming from a charter school too and i really like this school. i didn't realize i was missing out on so much and not only am i able to keep on top of myself academically but socially, i'm expanding and learning to relate to people more.
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.
im actally a new student, coming from another charter school. and im realllyyyy surprised that slz is actally quite a goodd, & diverse school. people are really nice, & helpful. people say this is a bad school, but i actallyy gotta disagree with them. this is a really good school, for the area that their in. But teachers are tooo easy on the students, students actally need more homework.
