My son is a senior this year. During his 4 years at this school he has participated in cross country, track and field, mock trial, and has taken several AP and honors classes. He has been challenged in his classes but with the help of caring teachers and coaches, has succeeded nicely. This year he had the opportunity to travel to Portugal and Spain with his AP Spanish teacher. This was a life changing trip for him. He was able to experience Spanish culture first hand and took every opportunity he could to speak In Spanish to the locals. His excellent teacher and mentor, Se ora Flood, prepared him well. We are grateful for the many high quality teachers who have helped our son grow into a well educated man and good citizen.

The marching band got second place in all of Southern California 2013-2014. The vocal department was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York 2014-2015. The choirs and bands recieve numerous superior scores at festivals. The school in my opinion was always a safe place to be at. I had fun and I learned a lot. I love it here and I'm sad to be leaving soon.

School has 3 different classes in one period for calculus. That is all three classes are going at the same time in the same period with the same teacher. One section of calculus maybe taking an exam while the teacher is teaching a lesson to the other calculus class in the same room. Same is occurring with the French classes. French 2, 3, 4 are during the same period with the same teacher. This must be illegal. This school has really gone down. The administration is nonexistent.

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.

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!
