I am a student here at Phineas Banning High class of 2011, it is a great school. Banning offers wide variety of opportunities to students such as internships at the port of San Pedro to scholarships. Each academy has there positives but it is on the students to learn. Many teacher are there to help every student even Saturdays. Just make sure you do pick the right academy according to your interest. ITA does offer a lot to students especially with the mentality of doing better and preparing us for the future years to come. They have the best teachers, field trips, and banquets!

I personally can say that Banning is one of the best schools any student can go to...it has willing to help teachers, various academies which prepare you for college and the overall eniviornment is usually friendly........from the teachers and staff there cannot be a time where you are confused on a homework task...and if you are you can ask any teacher and they are willing to help...home of the pilots...they are the best!!!

Schools like this one need to find a way to weed out the students who really don't want to be there so students that really want to education, receive one. There is much intimidation and violence committed by these bad apples and it is hard for students to concentrate on schooling.

I was a student here and I can personally tell you that the school is a lot better than it appears to be. There are many opportunities for the students and plenty of help is offered by the faculty. Programs such as Magnet and ITA really help you get prepared for college. The school also seems to be improving every year.

I have two kids that have attended Banning High School and I am also an alumni my son is class of '06' and my daughter is in the ninth grade. My son graduated with honors and is attending UC Davis but he was also very committed to school worked hard to achieve this my daughter on the other hand could care less and is not motivated I don't blame the school I blame the students that don't realize that these years of High School is what will build there future there is so many great teachers there who spend there lunch time in the classroom offering extra help and tutoring for the kids who really want to learn.If your child is not learning it is not the schools fault its the student who is making this choice.

As a past student, I can say that the academic opportunities are there for the students that really want to take advantage of them. After graduating from Banning HS, I was well prepared to attend an university and obtain a BSN in Nursing. This school has some exceptional teachers that will help you archive your educational goals. Unfortunately, some of the attending students are there to kill time and give this school a bad rep. Parents need to be involved in the future of their kids to help guide them along with the school personnel.

As a graduated student from Banning High, I can say this school is not what everyone seems to depict it as. Anyone who wants to come out successfull will do so. Parents who do say their children arent learning anything, dont blame it on the school the school has more than enough to offer, academies of many kind. Check your children and find out what they are doing, if they really are getting involved. I am now in college, was involved at Banning. Bottom line, Banning is a great school, the best. Parents get involved! Thats what the school needs. Too much talk, and no action from the parents.

Banning is a great school, I really don't understand why it is critiqued so badly. It all depends on the students' effort. If they want to succeed they will, if they don't want to succeed they won't. Banning is now offering many great academies that students can join such as the International Trade Academy, GESA, Global Safety Academy, etc.. where students have the chance to learn about different careers and job opportunities that they might want to pursue in life. I as an alumni of Banning High School am glad to say that Banning is a great school. As I said it all depends on the students' efforts not on the reputation that the school might have!

The teachers have an uphill battle as there is little parental involvement and administration is unstable.

Posted October 25, 2005

Banning is not the best school for any child to go to. Since I am a parent and one of my children were going to go there I know what it looks like first hand. The campus is dirty. If I was a parent looking at Banning as an option I would recommend you looking at king drew or San Pedro if those schools are to far from your house I would try Sarah or St. Paul they are public school.

I don't think my child is learning anything at all.

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.

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.
