This school is amazing. As a graduate of this school, I must thank all of the staff members for their hard work and dedication. I enjoyed TA-ing for the office and being in band the most. However, I wish the school would add in a Badminton team!
Both of my children graduated from Weston Ranch and are doing very well in a four university. We could not have asked for a better preparatory schedule from the teachers and staff. I will always be thankful to everyone who helped them along. The sports programs were great, the number of classes available for selection very impressive. As a result of this work our SAT test scores were "off the chart" Thanks to all!
Weston Ranch is fabulous. Nice area, wonderful people and a sincere environment. Athletics aren't too great but the tennis team is undefeated and the orchestra is astonishing. Academics are excellent and so is the staff.
This school is amazing. My kid always tells me about how great the teachers are and how they help him achieve. From day one this school has helped him grow. Weston Ranch is a very good school.
I have two kids that attend and have had nothing but positive academic guidance from WHS. The staff keeps us informed with activities/events. We even received a call from a teacher who just wanted to thank us for having such a 'great kid' -what a positive reinforcement from someone who took time out of her day to make that call! WRHS brought a program for parents to become involved with helping guide our kids up the 'college path' that required commitment on both parts.WOW! If anything could be said to 'improve upon' would be to bring in additional counselors as there are only two...but even so, having sat down with both my kids, we see the counselors are suggesting the best for them based on what classes have been taken already.. Funny how the thought of ever moving scares me to think about pulling them out of this school.
Ok I'm a graduating student this year and all I have to say I loved WRHS the teachers and staff altogether are great and we're very diverse. I have been in sports and in G.A.T.E. and I loved it all. We have a negative reputation the the school really does not deserve.
Hey, i am a graduate of the school, and I also feel that Weston Ranch is underestimated as a school. The principal can't answer phone calls, because she is involved in the school, not sitting in her office all day like most principals. Police officers don't patrol the school, they patrol all of weston ranch, and the cops are there AFTER school to catch speeding kids. We have ONE, count it ONE cop on campus, just like every school. A bad school would be bearcreak who has multiple police officers who are always at the school and the gates are locked after each bell rings so that the bad kids can't run the streets. Weston Ranch has had little to no large violence since Clara Shmied took over the school. I can't wait to see how it grows, and am extremley proud to be an Alumni!
Let me say this about the safety of this school,when you see police officers patrolling the school all the time I think that sends a messege.When I tried to contact the principal she is never there and never returns my phone calls (very unprofessional) I have the staff in lies covering for the principal. I have made complaints to the school board to no avail. This school is one of the worst schools in California and no one seems to care,how sad.
From our experience, WRHS is a good school. My son's counselor and his teachers have been great. They are always quick to communicate either by telephone or e-mail when I had questions or concerns.
it has great sports, staff, and clubs. And it has alot of great students.
I think as a young school the teachers need to grow along with the students. I think it is unfair so many people are giving this school such a bad reputation. Thank you for your time and god bless.
I love my school, although here an d again there are a couple of fights and the language that you hear around the school isn't really positive, you have to keep in mind that every high school has their ups and downs. I personally like the diversity of the students and how we et along with eachother so well.
I've greatly enjoyed my two years here, so far. I have two more years to go, but I've had a nice experience. The teachers are wonderful in terms of their connection to students, but I think their teaching methods could be improved, not to say that this goes for all teachers there. Aside from that, I find that WRHS is one of the most diverse schools I know and for this fact, I really enjoy going here. We're not separted that much into cliques and groups, like most other high schools, and I find that everyone gets along well with each other. It's a friendly school :)
Weston Ranch High School is a great school. We are fairly new and are still developing, but as a student, I can honestly say that it is the best school to go to in the district. Our AP program is outstanding and our graduating class this year has received numerous nationwide honors. We do have a bad reputation, but we are proving people wrong everyday. The parental involvement has been outstanding and it just shows how much this neighborhood cares about their school.
My daughter has really bad asthma and she came home complaining that the portable classrooms smell 'moldy'.
I personally love my school. It has the most diversity in our whole school district and the VOL. We have a lot of school spirit and we don't have fights every day. This year 06-07, we haven't had a fight the whole school year which is very impressing. Not only that but our extra curricular activites are very fun. Our principal is great and so are our administrators. We might not have the best scores, but we're a new school and we all try very hard. I'd give my school a 20 out of 10.
WRHS lacks safety. The principal was not empathetic at all, it seemed as if all she was concerned about was to improve the school's negative image.
Being a student/resident of Weston Ranch for over a decade, I have seen my share of bad days.
Ok I am a student at Weston Ranch and I have been for about three years. Weston Ranch has been given a pretty bad reputation over the years, One it dosen't deserve. Yes it have some problems but what school dosen't. Overall it's a pretty good school with great teachers and diversity.
