The Rating number for this School isn't appropriate. The Score is much lower than a ( 5 ) It maybe better than it was years ago but Test Scores don't lie. And even a rating of ( 5 ) sucks.

We are new to the area. A military family. The faculty and staff of SHS made us feel right at home. The students are very accepting of newcomers and my child fit in right away. Great sports pogram

I am a proud parent of SHS. Both of my children attend this wonderful school. Seaside High has changed in so many ways. A great principal, Mr. Moran and a very caring staff of teachers. The teachers have high expectations for the students, yet they care a lot about them.

I am very happy with Seaside High School. My child has been offered accelerated and AP classes that he loves. The Athletic program is top notch. SHS not only plays to win but also works hard to include and welcome all students to compete. I appreciate the spirit of responsiveness of the teachers and Principals. I have two more children that will be coming to SHS in the next four years.

All I can say is......I really love SHS. Today I went to a meeting in order to try to find help for my child and everyone listened to my concerns. The principal, school counselor and teacher made me and son feel valued. I was afraid that my son would get lost in the crowed. he is know for who he is.

The teachers at Seaside High School really go the extra mile. My child was out of school for a week with the flu. Every teacher was willing to work with us in in helping her to get her work done and get back on track. Couldn't be more pleased

Seaside High School has so many uniquely positive qualities to highlight. I was concerned about sending my child to public schools. Seaside has turned out to be the best decision. Teachers are excellent. The principals, office staff and students are warm and welcoming. There are a great variety of classes with a balance between academics, athletics, and the arts.

Unbelievable changes - Being a part of this school as a teacher and parent is very exciting. Opportunities are vast and interventions are strong. A great place! A community of excellence - every student every day is not just words -- its a commitment!!!

Seaside High School teachers and staff have an unparalleled commitment to every student every day! I love the A / B block scheduling that lets students take 8 courses and experience more electives and gives teachers time to teach deep and meaningful lessons. This school has made a miraculous turn around and is only getting better each day. Dr. White is an outstanding principal who's leadership is unparalleled and above and beyond anything I've ever seen in my career.

Seaside High School "A Community of Excellence. Every Student...... Everyday" has emerged as the quintessential leader of a " Turn Around Model School". Excellent leadership and communication by our administrators, Dr. White, Ms. Kevorkian and Mr. Moran have raised the level of high academic standards and expectations for students, teachers and staff. In addition to our academic programs, we have numerous student activities/clubs, and sports . At Seaside High we celebrate and appreciate our cultural diverse population with the words "Family, Pride and Respect". Join us as we continue to improve and build upon what was successful last year. Come and experience the "Spartan Pride".

Seaside High School is undergoing great changes. We have the best principal there is! We have the most caring and diverse student population on the Monterey Peninsula!

Posted January 25, 2011

Seaside High School has changed in both positive and negative ways. For instance the student attendance has greatly improved this past year with the new principal. The district, the state cuts and general educative politics have negatively influence all schools in the state of California and Seaside High has not avoided them. Students are either turned off or just go with the motions to get a passing grade. It is rare that I have a student who is in school to learn for learning sake instead of to get the grade. Most of the current teachers push students to achieve high academic standards. As an educator, I struggled against the general pressure that "So and so doesn't give as much work as you." or "Why do you make your class so hard?" I have held steady and fast to my belief that if I do not do my utmost best to prepare students for the next course then I have not done my job. Previous students that struggled come back to me and compliment me for having pushed them academically. Seaside is moving in the right direction. Its culture is changing. The students are ultracapable, multiethnic and enjoyable to teach.

Seaside High is one of the rare jewels of education. Its historical past is somewhat clouded by some unfortunate leaders. However, the school is exceeding all expectations and the students are benefiting greatly. Dr. White, the principal, is a wonder. Her leadership has inspired the facutly, the kids want to come to school, and they are looking at their college options. What a great place.

I attended SHS all four years of high school. It does have tremendous pride, and athletics are great. Yes, it is super diverse and awesome. HOWEVER...none of these things will help academically. If diversity is a big point of pride, then what about academics. That is what matters in a school. I almost slipped through the cracks at this school. While i attended UC Davis, i struggled my first year. I was not at the level that other kids were at and had to work really hard. My counselor at SHS recommended i go to MPC (monterey peninsula college) instead of Davis. In one instance, my teacher assumed id be going to MPC. EVERYONE assumed I was less capable that what I was. It was frustrating. I would never send my kids here. Or monterey high for that matter. mine are going to private school.

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.

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.
