My child is having a very disappointing experience at VHS, after a great elementary and jr. high school. There have been a few good teachers, but some are mediocre and a few are downright bullies. Overall, they do not seem to care about the success of individual students. They do, however, care a great deal about the success of their sports teams.

Great school, great envirement, and just great people at Valencia so it's really easy to fit in and meet new people.

My freshman is enthusiastic about her French teacher and cross country coach. Overall, she has been made to feel welcome by her teachers and encouraged by the rigors of the curriculum. The counselors and teachers were very accomodating in helping to make any class changes.

School is great and they have very good classes. Whenever my son needs help in something his teachers are there to help. I do agree that office staff needs more improvement in people skills and being nicer and attentive! You can certainly see the difference from other school office staff.

This is an alright school. If you're worried about gang activity/drugs, there's virtually none. Some teachers are really good, others average, and some are horrible. The office staff can be extremely rude.

This school has gone down hill over the past year or so as it is now way too crowded with all the Castaic area kids coming over, enrollment is way to high, classroom size is out of control. It is projected to only get worse next year. My kid is just a number, if your kid needs extra help in one of their classes good luck getting it!

we are only in our second year at valencia high. So far we believe it is meeting our daughters needs. there is a big emphasize on the football team which is not surprising but I wish less was made of it. So far we have a good teachers.

This school caters to those students who are college-preparatory, driven by rigorous instruction, and academically ambitious. The teachers, like those in most high-performing schools, are at the top of their game: bright, industrious, tech-savy, and demanding. They make no apologies for their lofty expectations. In fact, the parents demand it! We are delighted to have our child at this school, with two more on the way!

I attended this school for 2 years, it was a fantastic place to learn and grow. It was the place i grew into who i am today, The kids at this school make it. Everyone is friends with everyone. I do have only two problems, there was no wood or metal shop, and the math department was much to be desired

My daughter is in the special education program and has a very caring teacher, assistants and also a very caring male assistant. They offer wonderful activities for the students including academic and life learning skills. There also was a prom for these students which was very special.

My son has been a student here for two years, all in all a positive experience. My only problem with this school is the diversity of the faculty. There are no blacks,a few asian, and hispanic members of the faculty. The counselors seem interested, but overwhelmed by the sheer number of students . My son seems to like it, but I would like to see a more diverse faculty.

An entirely average school. As a graduate of Valencia High, I feel that I missed out on quite a few things in my senior year. I felt that Valencia High School didn't really focus on leaving no child behind. Plus it smelled because of the sewage.

Overall, a very good school. All schools in this area are impacted by the increase in new construction (housing), so the high school populations are growing. Still, Valencia High manages to maintain a positive environment for all students, with emphasis on education, career development, personal growth, and tolerance of other people's quirks and opinions. There are many opportunities for extra-curricular activities, from sports (both for girls and boys), to music and arts performing groups, to an abundance of clubs. I recommend this school over most of the high schools in the Santa Clarita area.

Meh... It was a decent school. Not good not bad just... there.

Like any other public school, the amount of parent involvement translates into a certain higher level of attention received. Also like most other public schools, parents must be aware of special programs available, such as IEP and 504 programs and insist that students are tested for availability. In our instance, once our student was tested and we insisted on his receiving assistance, the level of attention increased and grades improved. Administrators are responsive, but counseling is lacking in skill and attention. School has new football stadium, and sports programs are well supported. Hockey rink is across the street, and although not a sanctioned sport it is well supported. School is in the middle of suburban neighborhood. Among the girls dress code is not well enforced, but mothers should not try to dress like their daughters either. Diverse ethnic population, but not faculty. School and community struggling some with growing diversity.

I am a recent graduate of valencia high school, and i thought it was an amazing school. for the most part, teachers are supportive, and the atmosphere is great. there are so many ways for students to be active, whether it be choir, football, or the math club, and all of them are supported by the administration. there is not a single club that is looked down upon, which i thought was great. we have an asian cultural club, a black student union, even a muslim club. it's a great place to learn and be appreciated.

My daughter attended this school for one year. She excelled academically, mainly but because she was quite literate before she went. Not many of the teachers seemed interested in whether she got the material being taught, just whether she showed up. My biggest problem with this school was the strong psych based viewpoints about children. In particular once they required all students to attend a talk (during my daughter's English period) from a pair of psychologists who's daughter commmited suicide. These people proceeded to detail the plight of their daughter and then told the kids that they should not talk to their parents because 'they don't know how to handle these things'. To me that is outrageous. There are lots of programs like theatre and music, but the sheer number of students (2600 and growing) made the school very intimidating and impersonal.

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.
