Most Horrible school system I have encountered with all 5 kids. No security, no follow up. Alls they care about is your kid is there daily so they get thier money allowance. Bullies not punished, rules not upheld. Things stolen right out of classroom and scholl don't give a crap. Kid went from an a to an f in 1 semester and not even a call from the teacher. Yuba City schools have ruined my kids. Includes Yuba City High and River Valley!!!

All the teachers anre patient and great. They are good at teaching. There are enough facilities for music and art classes. Most parents involved in school activities.

We have two recently graduated and one more on his way - most of the teachers our kids had were either very good or absolutely fantastic! (Thanks, Mr. Warmee, Mr. Yonge, Mr. Lee, Mr. Rongley, Ms. Albrecht, Ms. Cato, Mr. Barzil, Ms. Smith, Ms. Johnson, Ms. Webb.)

Yuba City High School has some of the finest teachers in the state. They are knowlegable, well-educated, and deeply concerned for the success of their students. The lack of respect they receive from the administration and to some extent the public, has diminished morale and held the school back from realizing its true potential. Under the circumstances, YCHS is a mediocre school sitting on excellent teachers.

The lack of parent participation and teacher's ability is evident in the horrifically low academic achievement. The parents need to wake up and demand more out of themselves the students and especially the educators. It is unbelievable with a community with such population and growth that the school system is in such poor shape.

I am still deciding how I feel about the new leadership at YCHS. I haven't had a lot of contact with Dr. Johnson yet. I do know that he doesn't spend as much time getting to know the kids as Bill did, but hopefully he will. I am still pleased with the overall concern of the Vice Principals. With a couple problems, Mr. Tracy and Mr. Ramirez have been wonderful. I am dismayed at the amount of support for the Arts Departments. They are constantly hunting for funds. However, they put on a wonderful show. Everytime I am on campus it seems so dirty. Some teachers are great, some aren't. We parents have to stay on top of them to make sure our children are recieving a quality education and not being bullied by the teachers.

The quality of academic programs is fair. I don't believe the school strives for excellence so there are areas of improvement. There is a decent amount of availability of extracurricular activities including music, sports, academic clubs, and social clubs. From what I've witnessed there could be more parent involvement.

It has been a great experience. Mrs. Pomeroy is a wonderful counselor. The honors teachers in Chem & Math & History go way above & beyond to help my daughter. The office personnel in attendance are so sweet. I am so happy we moved her from Sutter High School - no comparison on quality.

The school itself is pretty good. The district and administration wastes dollar after dollar on excessive issues. For example: Thousands of dollars were wasted on adding air conditioning to a large no. of classrooms. yes the ac is good but 1 ac could accomadate 4 classrooms. Instead we have one for every classroom. This year while adding ac to the multi-purpose room they spent money on adding 8 sky lights. again not needed. the list goes on and on. yet they have only one custodian on staff during the school day. It becomes a dirty campus everyday. Admin and personnel (including a few teachers) need to redirect their focus and professionalism. On the otherhand there are several terrific world class teachers that care, motivate and teach in a professional manner. the school has much promise and I believe the entire staff is very capable. I just feel they are misdirected.

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.
