although santa paula high school has to work on some things i personally believe that it is infact a good school not only the way the school works but the beauty of the long lasting campus. but i will have to say the school does give money to the football team more than anything else i would like to see the money be given to the music program because lets be honest no matter how many times the football team practices there just not very good. especially this year. and with the new principal at hand i cant wait to see what new and exciting things come out of the school.

Santa Paula High School is an outstanding educational institutions. We have great students,talented teachers, and a wonderful staff. Our school has consistantly met our growth targets. Call the Principal at extension 2001 he will call you back!


Posted January 11, 2006

I am appauled at the administration from the superintendent on down. Lack of call backs, no interest in students learning, only their discipline and behavior. Placing students in classes regardless of their ability, setting them up to fail. The principal needs to get around campus more and man up about the issues that are going on with lack of resources for the average student, not just the football team. Don't bother asking to be involved in the school site counsel, they will never cal or allow parents to get involved in anything that has to do with how the school runs, except fund raisers for the football team. Saturday School is a joke.

Overcrowded classrooms, bathrooms not working, rain through ceilings. No call backs from administartion or district.

Problem with 'bullying' from other students, not taken seriously by school. No support for any of the arts programs, all football! Presumes all kids are college prep - no allowance for those that aren't. Poor call back from administrators, especially superintendent.

Girls bathrooms closed: only 5 stalls available for entire campus. Security guards are unfriendly. Cafeteria runs out of food and closes windows. Superitendent does not care about school, becomes punitive towards teachers who complain. I liked the accelerated reading program, but in general the school struggles with basic literacy. Most of the money goes to the football team.

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.
