Ghetto students, Sports teams do not know how to play a civilized, clean game. Gang mentality. Would not recommend to anyone

I am an alumni and i definitely learned a whole lot through out my high school year. The teachers were very helpful(Specially my English teachers) and the school was always full of energy.

The autmosphere is friendly and the teachers are helpful. The Career Path Center takes the time and effort in helping a student apply for college, its comforting to know that someone is taking interest in your future. At SEMHS its easy to get involved in after school activities. So far SEMHS has left me with life long friends and the extra boost needed to prepare me for college.

I am Currently a senior at SEMHS, and I must say its an great school. Their are not really any 'clicks' the teachers and their curriculum is excellent. I left SEMHS for one semester and between that school i attended 2 other schools but I couldn't help but to come back to south. The enviorment is irreplaceable. :]

Going to south el monte was my sons choice. He loves it. He likes all the teachers, except one, but they let him switch teachers and made everything better. He went to El Monte High for his freshmen year, and hated it. He was terrible grades, but not he's getting A's and B's. He loves the other students because they're more into the stuff he is and more mature. He says there's almost no fights, and when there is, it's between girls. He also, by suprise, likes the food to. So yes, I highly recommend this 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.

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.
