If you even lucky to have a teacher, I doubt he or she would be able to control the class. I find it sad that this school is so ridiculously stupid. The whole place looks like a prison and I agree with that. Since most of the students are monkeys who can't last a single minute without a fight or argument with a teacher or student. This school is so bad you should just go to smelly MIT. That's real advice don't even bother visiting this school. The school is one of the worst in the Bay Area. I'm glad Vallejo High spawned the Zodiac killer, it makes sense because this school is for bloody twats!

Vallejo high school is by far the worst school ever, it looks like the kids are in a prison environment as far as the inside of the school looks, the teacher doesn't care about the actually learning of the kids as long as they get there pay check. I can't blame the teachers for it all though, the kids and how they act shows how they live and are raised at home, they cuse the teachers out and threaten the teacher my son can home and told me that one kid set a fire in the class and the teacher did nothing but set there. Keep your kids away from this school if you value your kids education and possible life......oh and don't try to get in contact with the principle, even if you leave a message he won't return your call I tried several times with no luck so I just took my kid out and left without saying anything to the school. If the rating system had zero for a rating that would be my rating. That school would be better of shut down and stop wasting our tax dollars for literally nothing there is NO educationing taking place there

Crafting critical thinking skills takes a backseat to crafting politically progressive opinions. As long as the students know what they're supposed to think, many of the teachers don't care if the students know how to think.

I attended Vallejo High back in the 80's and it was a mess then...a student was stabbed in the hallway and the student who did it was never disciplined. One of my teachers used to enjoy telling us that she was "only here for a paycheck" The school is old and not maintained. I would never send my children here.

The school is a joke. The teachers are too preoccupied with chasing an agenda to actually confer facts. The school district could save itself tons of money by shutting down the school and sending these kids to the library.

As a parent of a former student, I can speak to the fact that there are several instructors that truly care and do their best with the limited resources they have. Then there are those with whom I could never get in contact. I found the administration lacking, including the principal (who was a good teacher when I had him years ago) either unable or unwilling to stand by his word on several occassions. In addition, my child came to the school with a perfect attendence record, but secondary to continuous oversights, and failure to correct the problems even when proof was provided to both teacher and administrators, that record was ruined. Needless to say, I transferred my child out of the district and am proud to say he is doing well, thriving and enjoying his high school experience. I would have loved my child to graduate from my alma mater, however, had no defense against those instuctors and administrators that did not understand the concept of teamwork and parental involvment in educating my child. For those wonderful instructor who do there best, my hat off to you!

As a student, I see what parents DON'T. This school needs a serious clean up, and I don't mean just the trash.

I've had good and bad experiences with my two students who attend (Junior and Senior). IF your student is not in AP or Honor courses then good luck! Clubs & athletics are excellent. Some teachers are truly dedicated, some teachers are there to just collect a paycheck. I was fortunate to experience both. If I could do it all over again, private school is the way to go.

This is the best school ever, and it does have its weak spots, but never judge a book by it cover.Our Principal is so easy to talk to and get along with he respects all students even when they dont respect him. I love my school and I know anyone who comes here will LOVE it too!

Posted July 18, 2007

As a former student at this school, I can say that the teachers are great, but there is a huge disipline problem at this school. I earned extremely high marks, and thought I was prepared for college. My parents weren't educated enough to ask for me to be placed into AP courses. At any rate, I made it to college and realized this school did not prepare me at all. You would think a student with a 3.8 GPA would do excellent in college. I had to teach myself how to be a good student. Thanks to my education experience in Vallejo's school district, I will not place my children in public schools. Yes, my children do have a parent who is more in tune with academics; however, I believeth e classroom should be more about teaching and less about discipline. Good luck to any parent on their decisions.

Advanced Placement programs are top notch. Teachers in those classes are very well educated and provide challenge. Extracurricular activities are plentiful. Parents arent too involved, but still some involvement. The school is full of delinquents, unless your children are a part of the AP Honors programs or a part of leadership.
—Submitted by a student


Posted February 7, 2006

Only way to get a decent education for your children is to have them enrolled in AP or Honors classes, otherwise they will not learn enough to make it in the outside world yet alone in college. Business Adcameny was an good option when it existed as the kids had the same core 'caring' teachers throughout high school. Too many discipline problems interfer with the kids education at VHS which is too bad as there are some good teachers at VHS. They need to be able to teach and not have to deal with the interuptions that occur.

The school is okay I guess but the teachers and the whole staff isnt as involved as they should be and there isnt very many programs to help stidents who have fallen behind with there credits or work.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 22, 2005

The quality of academic programs are lacking in the ability of the instructors to convey a complete understanding of the subject matter. I believe this is due to the absence of discipline and respect on the part of the students for the instructors. There was no Golf program in the 2004/2005 school year at Vallejo High because of the lack of interest. This is unacceptable. The level of parent involvement is limited. As a parent, I have made numerous attempts to contact the school on behalf of my son, and most of the time the individual does not return my call.

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.
