yhs isn't a good school. There is way too much bullying and drugs. If your kid is good or even halfway decent, don't put them there. The teachers there are good, but they don't do anything about the kids.

Life Skills for Special Needs. The teachers all seem to love their students. I found the IEP very frustrating though. At the IEP they don't include all the teachers or psychologist in any of the IEP that I experienced. My husband and I requested simple things as allowing our teenager to be apart of golfing, band or other areas YHS offered and we were continually brushed off, or told no that didn't work out for them. I wanted my son to pick out his own extracurricular class and not be limited with 3 choices. I also wanted him to take an English class and they told me maybe maybe next IEP or maybe next semester. It never happened. I felt like he was held back. I would of rather my teenager take an extra english class with an assistant than crush plastics or play puzzles.

I can't even comprehend how someone could say there is no help. The teachers are phenomenal and most ARE available for you're assistance, although YES, they do hold you accountable. Tons of programs like writing workshops and peer tutoring are also provided at the students' convenience. YHS is incredibly supportive of a very wide variety of extracurricular activities and clubs creating tons of opportunities for students to be involved. It is truly a wonderful environment and I would recommend this school to anyone.

Is Terrible. For a special needs student is fails to meet IEP needs mostly by refusing to place needs in the IEP to begin with. THey are more interested in disapline, and attendance than education. Maybe if the children who have needs were learning something, they would want to be at school. The assistant principal refuses to listen to the parents!

Opposed to other reviews, I believe this school is very supportive of its students. The school itself is ran efficiently and is able to fend off the chaotic nature of the district. I personally do not know why other reviews are claiming low scores and API growth when it out performs the 'golden school' of the area, Redlands East Valley. They are also quite supportive of extracurricular programs and do not throw all their funds at football as most other schools do. The school has high standards of its students and does not expect mere mediocrity. Finally, the school, I believe, is a very safe campus. In the two years that I attended, I witnessed at most 5 acts of violence. Also, because the campus is offset from the main road, the administration is able to control who enters and exits the campus. As a former student, I enjoyed Yucaipa High.

Yucaipa High is better than most schools I visit as a Military Liaison Officer. Teachers recently went through a lengthy and bitter contract negotiation that created problems for students, administration and themselves. There are still some hard feelings, but the campus has settled down now. (This explains some previous reviews) I would recommend this school for any student.

I really would not consider this school for my children, due largely to the fact that district adiministration in so unsupportive of the principal and his staff. With the constant reduction of fiscal resources from the district administration, I do not think my children would get the quality of experiences they deserve.

This is a great school. The new principal (since fall 2004) is a great motivator. Yes, sports are an emphasis, but the teachers really care about kids. It is a very safe campus. The district is not supportive of high standards for academics, and doesn't respect teachers, and that is a huge issue. Long term, new district leadership is needed for both the board and district administration, but YHS has the results it does due to great principal, great teaching staff(mainly), and (mainly) great kids.

This school doesn't have any priorities for academics. It's merely focused on sports, which are recreational. Most kids don't care about their education. There needs to be more morals and more focus on helping students get to college, not become average individuals.

This is a great school were there are many great extracuricular activities. Most of wich have won and achieved great honors. Yes we could use more parent involvement but that doesnt stop YHS from being the great school it is. Its performing art department is amazing. YHS is ranking higher every year on the state testing every year. High graduation percentile. This is a great school with a dought. And at the speed this school is changing, withing a few years it will be a distinguished school in California.

I did not like working at this school. Very little support for the staff. Favortism among certain kids. Safety issues and most teachers have very weak classroom management. Went to work for another district after being at YHS for several years. I would not let my kids go here.

I do not like going to a high school that has a lot of violence. My family moved here last year from a city with nice schools. It is hard to go to school with other kids that are so negative about learning. I can see why so many kids do not want to go to college in this town.

Low API scores compared to other County schools. Very Socio-economically disadvantaged district. Most families concerned with education put into private schools.

Disapointing academic programs. Very low scores. Very low rate of students going on to college. Lots of music and arts available. School should have some type of dress code. As a teacher at this school I would not want my own children to come here unless some big changes were made. The principal is good but has a lot of overwhelming issues with little support.

School is very old and needs some updating. Did get a new fence this year. Low soci-economic community. Some newer homes might bring in some new parental involvement.The community is made up of 1/4 new homes that has helped but the older existing community that has lived here for a long time does not seem to value education or have expectations of their students. The idependent study (at Home) is large. High drop out rate. I hope that things will change in the future. Really concerned teachers.

A well run school. Teaching staff is some of the best I have ever come across. The school is a little underfunded based on near by schools, but based on the income of the area, the school has done very well. Strong Sports program, but not so strong in other areas.

A rather safe school in comparison to the state, though there is always the occasional instance of someone getting drunk on campus. The principal is awesome, loved by adminstrators and students alike. Teachers are good, though the quality of education isn't as good as it could be, simply because of the block scheduling and the talk of doing away with it. The political partisanship amongst some teachers also detracts from students of opposition affiliations, though this is rare. Just about all sports are available, including golf, water polo, swimming, and debate. There are many clubs, and good activities, though school spirit is relatively low because of a terrible football team, which has a new coach after the last 3 seasons amounting to less than a 10-20 record. Overall, it's academically a good school, sports wise, offers a lot, and clubs have much to offer as well. Little Parent Involvement though.

This is a great school. Everyone is all always involved, parents, teachers and admin. They have a variety of different activities for students on and off campus to get involved in. They have a band and choir, colorguard, drama/theather, art, many clubs, sports: swimming, waterpolo, tennis, football, soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, cross country, track and field, and cheerleading. And they have programs to help students with disabilities.

Sadly, some positions are filled with teachers who while qualified, cannot teach. Principal accepts this without question, resulting in students ill prepared for their chosen field of study. Principal unwilling to address issues with parents. Substandard is absolutely acceptable to her. This is the exception, most of the teachers are excellent, going beyond the 'state standards'.

As a past student of Yucaipa High, I would like to send a word of encouragement to parents out there that do not know 'what goes on at school.' I have been back to visit the campus this past year after graduating college, and saw to my amazement that it was growing full fold. I have noticed the facilities are getting bigger and better, along with much needed updates. I assure you that teachers are fully involved with students and willing to help at all times. I was always offered extra help if I needed, and I teachers were very careful in progressing too fast if another child needed extra help. Usually in high school, if one needs help...then the whole class needs help too because everyone is too scared to raise their hand. I was involved in many athletic programs that received high achievement awards. The coaches were caring and helpful in progressing us to ultimately receive a scholarship from a college in state or out. I have a firm foundation because of the efforts of the teachers and athletic programs that were utilized.
