Rodger DiCarlo. Girls Varsity basketball coach. He has taken much time from his own family to push these girls to be very competitive. Thank you for the hard work.

Great communication via emai, text, or available by phone. After hours efforts are displayed and you can see they care.

For those that said too much, step up to the occasion. Nothing in life is free, work hard for your future

Honor course and AP are demanding. Opportunities for students to excel but must put in the extra efforts

Discipline is taught by holding the kids accountable for their work and behavior. Attracts great teachers and sets the experience levels high for the future.

This school sets the bar high and expects a lot of effort from the students. The kids that expect free handouts and passing grades without the hard work will not do well here. Great transition into top Universities, API scores in the past were 914, top in the county

San Marcos High School
Develops honesty: Strongly agree

Conservative values that teach respect, honesty, and demand hard work for future development. Brand new facility with great flow, attracts great teachers, expects a lot from students. AP classes and honor classes can be challenging.

My friend told me not to go here. I should have listened and not wasted four years.

There is nothing they give you except for busy work that won't matter at all.
