I love South East High School. Im alumni from 2008 and I do have to say that my time there was well spent and definently prepared me for higher education at Mout St. Mary's College. I also do have the perpective of being a student at South Gate High School . Although I was torn by having to change school's after completing my freshman year and leaving many friend behind it was the right decision. South Gate High lacks as a school and I'm thankful to have completed my high school career at South East.

South East High School is a great place to be because most of the teachers care about their student's future education. All South East Staff are supportive, and help students to try to get to college. Although we lack of money, unlike many other schools anywhere in the country, we have infinite things and people in south East that motivate us.

This is a really bad school because all of the students getting harrassed and all the drugs in this school.

We have the best academies, led by the best teachers, where all the students are encouraged to attend college or learn a trade. Our Administration is supportive of additional education and extra curricular activities. The majority of our population is Hispanic and parents are encourage to take classes at the high school as well.

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.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
