this school is nothing but the worst school in history honestly i dont see any good thing about this school or how you people think this school has a positive side to it, ive been going here for 3 years now and i havent learned anything at all the teachers wont even explain they carelessly just explain things and then move on to something else really quickly it really bothers me and its really ghetto and dirty. plus the track on the football field is plain dirt which is not supposed to be like that. im willing to change my school this year...


Posted December 15, 2012

I graduated Verdugo back in 08' and I have to say I enjoyed all 4 years I spent here! I always dislike hearing the "ghetto" comments on this school because I never understood it. I grew up in Sunland/ Tujunga and obviously many of the people making these comments are too judgmental and maybe never have visited the nearby towns of LVT and Pacoima (no hate on them because I have friends living there). But anyway I always say high school is what you make of it. I chose to join sports teams and clubs and just be active. I've had teachers there that made such an impact on me and my view on life. I'll forever be grateful to Mr. Reinhart, Ms. Franco, and Ms. Manaka. Many of the teachers hear truly care for their students! And what's best about Verdugo..the schedule gives us 3 periods and were out by 1:30. Yes Verdugo may not have the big huge gym and football field that other schools may have, but that's okay. I love Verdugo! Just study hard and anyone can get into a great UC or calstate.

Man I had some awesome times at Verdugo. I go to UCSD right now, I graduated last year. As ghetto as this school is, I still miss it. The school has all sorts of students. You have the students who try to look like they are in a gang but they really aren't (because lets face it, the so called "gangs" here that parents complain about are extremely laughable compared to actual gangs at other schools around LA), you have students who study all the time, you have students who don't do a single thing, you have students who devote so much time into the respective clubs they are involved with, and you have just a bunch of average students who are a little bit of everything. I used to attend an "extremely good" private school in 9th grade and I absolutely hated it. It was filled with a bunch of stuck up snobs. I transferred to Verdugo and man the people I met, students and teachers are unforgettable. I got involved in many of the clubs, like interact club and the health and biomed club and the students who run those clubs are really top notch leaders. It is really up to the student. They determine how "academic" the school is, they have to get involved. Verdugo definitely offers that.


Posted January 12, 2011

No matter how ghetto this school is and no matter how low the test scores are, these only rely upon the students. Some parts go to the teachers, however, high schoolers should be able to make their own decisions. The school does not make all their decisions for them. Meaning, not one can complain how bad this school is. Who tags and vandalizes other places? The students. Shame on whoever complains about their own school. He/she probably doesn't have anything to do, but to talk trash.

Thinking about VHHS? Don't go to this school, already the troubled neighbor Mt. Gleason which feeds students into Verdugo fails to reach state ayp and api scores. With notorious violence gangs and drugs. Sun Valley Middle School as well has a massive population of students which feed into Verdugo most students using drugs and are membersof gangs. Verdugo is not only dirty but fails to reach academic standard and rigor. Favoritism is a nuesance here as well. AP classes are limited, and white gangs such as Toonerville in Tujunga destroy school property in splattering paint, graffiti and swastikas all over the campus with racial tensions. Verdugo is a troubled school, and I do NOT suggest your child come here.

I am a former student of VHHS,and I can say that any positive reviews about this school are not true at all. As a student I had first-hand experience in what really goes on there. The teachers rush through their lessons,not taking care to make sure the students fully understand before moving onto the next lesson. The counselor I had was even worse,he screwed up my credits so badly that had I not left and finished my schooling elsewhere i'd have graduated 3 years later than I should have. The physical ed. staff doesn't make allowances or exceptions for students that have medical issues (I have asthma) .They treat all P.E. students as if they are soldiers,not kids. There is also a lot of fights,racial intolerance and favoritism among staff and student alike. I was very disappointed with my experience there. This school is a joke.

I am a parent and my child and I love Verdugo Hills senior high school. My child started classes at verdugo in his jr year after attending private school most of his life. We could not afford the private school any longer so sent him to our local High School. We had so many fears, like will he be safe, will he have a quality education. Since he has attended he has been challenged, and has accountability, by his teachers. He is doing well. As for the safety part, it really is up to the students to make good choices, and chose there friends wisely. Many of the teachers on campus let students sit in classes to eat lunch, play board games, or catch up on homework, during recess or lunch. Teachers are special people and they don't deserve the adverse remarks, comments, or action that is often directed at them.

Principal and teachers are too relaxed, no guidance, no standards, no school pride! Other than that it's just a regular school. I went here 14 years ago and now I work for LAUSD. I have seen the school go down hill since Dr. Turner left.


Posted December 7, 2008

well overall i think the school is great i went to private school called skyward christian for 6 years and it got so bad i turned to verdugo and i think by far it is the best school the sheduale is great and the teachers are very nice and understanding and they really get in touch with the students and the school tries to help you as much as possible with graduating and things like that and not only that they try to help you after highschool to and you get a lot of oppertunitys you would not get at other schools and you have fun well doing all that.i think its great

This school is wack. The teachers are horrible, the only reason you should check this school out is its schedule but other than that its the worst school I've ever attended.

I have seen the difference in several schools I have attended in the past, and this is by far the best. It has amazing teachers, who work hard, excellent programs for students after school, and a good atmosphere.

I absolutely love ms. Carbone, the magnet counselor. While the school doesn't offer every possible combination of honors course, with collaboration between the student and teacher, it can be done.

I seriously wonder how many of these parents have actually had an encounter with the faculty or teachers when they are giving rave reviews. The teachers are lacking the support most kids need. the faculty is so busy that they rather just push a kid to the next school rather then work with them. This school had good potential but it lacks the teacher and faculty involvement to get it there. The teachers don't want to have to deal with anything. Mrs Burk is pretty good but her office staff is rude and need a training course in customer service.

Verdugo is a mixed bag. I have encountered intolerance from both administration and teachers for my ADD, learning disabled sons. On the upside, the college-style schedule is great when teachers effectively use a variety of strategies to engage all students. The students are encouraged to develop leadership skills through Magnet, athletic, band, theatre and comedySportz programs. These groups provided excellent opportunities to learn,socialize and be involved in community. Some faculty allow a minority of students to redirect or disrupt the classroom - but many others inspire and transform our emerging adults. The school's unusual schedule does help to give these emerging adults, whether bussed in or local, a wide range of experiences to chose from.

This school is one that really helps you. The teachers are their. The staff cares, principle actually knows the students and it's just great. But the school has a negative side their is not much electives to choose form. Parents please get together to change this!

Very poor communication with Principal and consolers. Poor communication with most teachers. Only 6 teachers are signed up for the Homework.com, you should have all the teachers signed up so that parents can make sure that the kids are doing what they are suppose to be doing!

My daughter has been going to school here for 2 years and is doing well. She's becoming more of a self starter and I believe gets the help she needs from her teachers. The only problem I see is with the college type of class schedule. Students switch class schedules at 1/2 year having earned full credit for the year, and I'm not sure it allows for enough time to explore other class in the arts that are avaialable. The classes themselves are good, and extra credit is allowed to make up for problems elsewhere.

The Multimedia magnet at Verdugo Hills High School is a mixed bag. The block scheduling allows students to concentrate on 3 classes each semester or get ahead by taking a fourth. Students with 3 classes leave school at 1:12. Four classes gets students out at 3:06. The schedule is a favorite of students, especially if concurrently enrolled at a local JC. Class size is fairly small (around 30). The entire campus is less than 2400 kids, with the magnet reaching capacity of 360 next year. Clearly the most frustrating aspect of the school is the communication from within. Daily bulletins are not read in class (although they're finally being published online), and parents will find it difficult to get information. The magnet is still growing but offers animation, filmmaking, and a variety of media options. Hopefully more will arrive soon, but I suspect it will take a bit of parental involvement.

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.

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.
