Royal used to be a very good public high school, but over the last few years their academic and music programs have declined. While my son had several very good AP and Honors teachers, there were others that seemed to care little for the students. The music programs has taken a downturn, due to a young and inexperienced music director. The students seem to really like her, but she is lacking in teaching the real fundamentals of music.

My son had a positive high school experience, due to the wonderful teachers and programs they offer, now my daughter is going there and i hope she finds Royal just as wonderful!

This school is great! My son is in A.P. and Honors classes, and all of his teachers really care about their students. Many of his teachers come early or stay late to help students who are struggling. Their Band department is fantastic! My son is in several band groups, and Mrs. Pate is fantastic at teaching and motivating her students! Go Highlanders!

Royal is a great school. I have two children attending Royal. Both are in AP classes. The teachers are really preparing them for college. If you're willing to put the work in the teachers are there to help. The sports programs are wonderful too.

Royal High school AP classes really prepare student for academic success in college. If students' are willing to put time in classes the rewards are long-lasting. Have had two children graduate from Royal and both were prepared for out of state colleges.

Great school. I graduated in 2005 and it was my launching to new beginnings. The ESL department is amazingly overrated. Sports are very well handled too. The Highlanders have defeated SVHS several times in football.

I can't stand the school. It is very dirty. The staff does'nt to much to help the students when the students have problems with others at the school. I am trying to get transfered out right now. I hate it there.

This school had an API increase of 40 points last year... Royal has a very supportive staff and teachers who earnestly care about student success! Mr. Houghton is a wonderful principal!

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.
