My grandson and I went to registration this past Monday. It was beautifully and efficientlly organized. Everything went smoothly. Any problems were quickly resolved. There were well informed students on hand to provide him a tour of the school to show him where his classes would be. Her name is Vivian. She was well-informed and gracious. I think this experience is the gold-standard for registration and orientation. No school could have done a better job. Not onlly that all students were treated with respect and courtesy. It was a great beginning for what I am sure will be a successful experience. Thank you! Delores Burris

Our school is very unsatisfactory with the exception of a few teachers. Our administrators have no sense of morality when it comes to protecting or helping students and often stand on the side of the aggressors rather than the victims. I am an honors student and I must say that the honors teachers do not disappoint, but there are no where near enough honors classes. I feel extremely unsafe at this school as the vice principal stated that it was okay for me to be harassed because students had told him things about me. Sad to say that there are only 3 teachers on that campus that keep me there and one of them retires next year. I would never suggest that any student be enrolled into this high school if they wish to have a bright future.

I have had 4 kids attend this school, starting in 2000. The administration has always been anti-child and anti-parent. There's is a pervasive, longstanding attitude of 'us against them. This community has a problem with nepotism and cronyism in all levels of government, from city to county, and is reflected in this school.

This school needs dramatic changes. Needs total change in administration. The principal and vice principal have totally alienated the staff, parents, and students. The schools morale is zero. Students are fleeing the district in droves to charter schools. This district needs a change in superintendent's also, isnt it time to have an educator rather than a retired military officer leading it. Also need to have a rule that administration at the district office and school can not have spouses that work for the district-- a huge conflict of interest.

it is truely sad to see the condition that this school is in. attending high school there 10 yrs ago, i never thought i would see or hear such bad things about this school. it goes to show that the education system is being hit at every level across this country and something needs to be done and fast.

I love that all of our teachers are all so involved in the student life, and most of them will do anything that they can to resolve something for their students.

Administration is inconsistnet and does not uderstand Ed. Code. Assistant Principals have no problem yelling at parents when a concern is brought up. Why are they in the office instead of supervising the students that are selling drugs or fighting. It is truly sad to see a school that has not had strong leadership in at least a decade.

YVHS is a school that needs funding and care. Right now the school overworks me and my friends to our limits. There are many expulsions per year and more needs to be done about teacher relations.
—Submitted by a student


Posted August 31, 2006

Yvhs has been one of the most disapointing school experiences of my life. There are not enough books to go around, they are so strict and caught up with the rules almost no education goes on. It is an uncomfortable place to be and definately not a good learning atmosphere. The clubs and after school sports and lame and have next to no funding. This school is so poor, the food is inedible, and the only learning done is to the test. The students on the most part are uninspired and are mearly getting through the day. Being there is a sad, lonely experience that leaves you overtired and frustrated

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.
