There are terrific opportunities at Tustin for students to achieve. As a student I found my experiences competing nationally and internationally with the Model UN team to be most beneficial in preparing me for college. Academically, the award winning MUN Leadership, AVID and STEM academies are terrific and unique to THS. There are a wide variety of AP courses, sports, and arts courses readily available. Tustin provides students with the experiences and skills needed to get accepted into top universities. Before deciding, visit THS and learn more for yourself.

I am currently a freshman at tustin high. Foothill High School is often thought of as better then tustin. Does foothill have the second largest model United Nations conference in the United States however? Foothill has many cliques that leave other students out and behind. Tustin High's program AVID delivers necessary help in subjects in order to help them succeed and attend four year colleges. Look between foothill and tustin it could have gone either way for me but I chose tustin because of the dance team. Look up tustin high all-male on youtube. It requires no experience before the time you audition. Honestly, I am excited for Tustin high because all the people I have met are the nicest people I think I will ever know.

Honestly, I'm so glad I'm graduating this year. Tustin high school has just gotten worse and worse. The administration isn't nice at all but the teachers are really excellent. The teachers always try to help somehow. But lately the moral of the students has gotten low and students don't pick up their trash and always cuss and whatnot. Because of these reasons, this is why I gave such a score.

Great school, love the diversity! This school is practically amazing. Although I must warn you to beware of the new latin teacher. As a student, I've been enrolled in Latin for the past two years. Although I dropped out after my second year, I've heard many things about the new Latin teacher. She's extremely tough. My friends in Latin 1 are complaining that she expects them to parse every single word on an exam or test. Now that's what we did in Latin 3, but I think it's a little too much for a Latin 1 class. Also for their final, they have to write a 5 paragraph essay in Latin. Again, that's something most would expect in a Latin 3 class, not Latin 1. There's nothing wrong with a compelling teacher, but I just think it's a little too much. Good thing I finished my two years!

FANTASTIC SCHOOL. I am involved in the PTO and so I know what is going on behind the scenes at this school. AWESOME staff, faculty and I love the Principle and VP's. Wonderful men and very caring of the school. Want a good picture of THS? Read the real ratings. World News & Report. See also the National Standing. AP score goes up every year. We even have people that thought they were getting a better education by going to the "other" school. Now they are coming back. Hewes and FHS aren't going anywhere, neither will your children.

I'm a Tustin High graduate. I'm counteracting a rating by a FHS fan who is simply continuing the longstanding cross town rivalry. My kids went to FHS. I was not impressed. GO THS!


Posted February 11, 2011

I don't know where you all get your information but Tustin is a horrible school - I am so thankful to have my kids at Foothill. Stay away from Tustin High.

Tustin High is a fantastic school that deserves a higher rating than GreatSchools.org has given it. Certainly, its test scores may not be comparable to Foothill's, but I can attest to the fantastic faculty, safe campus, and strong community that Tustin has to offer. Tustin High does a great job of providing resources for diverse learners. For overachievers, THS has the most number of AP classes in the TUSD. For those who are struggling, THS has a wonderful support system for after-school help, led by both student groups as well as faculty. As a former student, I would not be at an Ivy League university today had it not been for Tustin High. If I were to repeat my high school experience, I would not go anywhere else.

I am a student at THS and i agree that it is a safe school and i appreciate how the teachers and students interact together,

As a teacher, I'm particularly impressed by the number of academic and social opportunities for students at every ability level. The teachers, students and administrators are extremely friendly and collaborate well. Our honors and advanced placement programs are inclusive and excellent, which may be why we are the highest ranked high school in Tustin according to the Newsweek.

THS is a very safe school, I can say that as an alumni.THS has excellent administrators, faculty and security personnel to handle these issues. You are as safe at THS as you are in any other school.

THS loooks like a safe campus, but in reality it is not, yes the classes and all that are great, but I beleive parents should be aware of what is happening on this campus.

The school is rather good. There is a mixed diversity of ethnicity. Crime is low and that is great.

THS is an excellent high school. The faculty and administration provide a positive and safe environment for all students to succeed. THS academic programs and extra curricular activities are outstanding. Both my sons have gotten a great education as a result of this. I must point out that the AVID program is excellent and has surpassed my expectations. They help the average student succeed in high school and prepare them for college and beyond. The Athletics program is outstanding and well balanced. They even provide tutoring for those athletics that are in need. I believe that athletics are very important in the life of all high school students. It provides for a place in the general school population for every student. My son enjoys everyday at school because of the environment you help provide. A big thanks to everyone at THS and congratulations to Dr. Lewanski!

Overall I like THS for my daughter. It provides diversity, which is good for life after high school. I think we could use a better cheerleading coach in order to bring more school spirit to the squads. I used to think that this high school was dangerous and a haven for gangs and drugs, but my opinion has changed. Thanks to the principal, this school is a better environment for the students there.

THS is a wonderful school. The faculty and administrators truly care about the students. My daughter is getting a great education in a safe environment. Although the facility is old,the students are well prepared for college. THS is the only high school in the district where I would send my children. Great kids, involved parents and superior teachers.

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.

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.
