Santiago High School Reviews
Awesome place for kids to grow
Kinda funny how all the negative reviews of Santiago High School are filled with horrible spelling. The kind of thing that unveils uneducated people who didn't pay attention very well when THEY were students. Who now have grown up with rather ignorant views, like horses wearing blinders. Never ceases to amaze me. Why do the people who know the least, know it the loudest? Any time people like this run across trouble, they NEVER look inward, but blast away at everyone else. Santiago High School is a place filled with all kinds of humans, perfect and imperfect. It's a great place to get an education. A FREE education. In a school district where good kids are rewarded and bad kids are not. It's as simple as that.
The school really needs to pay attention to the pick-up of kids after school. Examples lines that overflow into traffic lanes and cars that wait for kids on the roads. Blocked views for those who use the "official" pick-up lines while kids dash out into the roads to cross! Also, the events that the school plans which keeps parents from using the "official" pick-up spots during the mass exits of kids is crazy.. examples - parking for baseball games/practices, band fairs where busses clog pick-up. Then there is NO parent notification as to these events until you pull up to the school. Announcement don't do us any good... emails, texts or phones for us.
Thanks for listening
This school is has kids that bully other students.They also make new students feel unwanted. There is issue with different races attending this school and nasty comments are made. I know this happen to my kids. I have pulled them out. Its great that they focus on kids attending college but they need to focus on the bullying.
School is good only in two regards: extra curricular actives and campus aesthetics. If it lacked these two things, the school would not be worth attending.
Administration is horrible. The security guards are even worse. They really abuse their job, are apathetic towards student concerns, treat EVERY student like their some sort of criminal (Straight A's, in AP Classes? Doesn't matter) and only care about their pay (of course this is an assumption but their behavior definitely points towards this).
The school is crowded to the max as well which bodes well for extracurricular activities but not for everyday school life. The teachers are whatever. You might get some good ones, you might get some bad ones and then you might get some really bad ones. If you are going to attend this school, you should probably get the low down on which teachers are the best so you know what's up. Make sure you make these selections in the summer since the best teachers always get filled up and by California law, their can't be more than 42 kids in a class.
I am a senior at this school. i believe that this school is great to an extent. just like every other school it has flaws and strengths. One of the flaws in my eyes are the teachers; there are some teachers who could careless about what you do and how you do it, all they are interested in is getting paid. Don't get me wrong there are those few teachers that push you to become better and want you to succeed in the future. A strength that Santigo High School has is the clubs and organizations. The clubs on campus are well informed about what goes on in their communtity and their school, they present their beliefs, thoughts, and concerns to one another and try and make the club better and united.
This is a great school. The classes are challenging and most of them have helped prepare me for college. Of course there are a few of those teachers that don't do there job right but no place is perfect. Santiago has a lot of great sports programs and clubs so that everybody feels they have a place they feel comfortable. I honestly feel that a majority of the administration there cares about my well being and my success.
It is honestly a school that needs work in the Administration department. They are all really unprofessional when it comes to disciplinary actions. They don't even follow there own rules.
I think overall that Santiago is a pretty good school. There are a few teachers that should not be allowed to teach but this year my daughter seems to have gotten a good schedule with good teachers. The sports at this school are a bit disappointing especially dance and cheer. I would like to see some changes in the future and have them add a freshman cheer team.
The teachers are just trying to push the kids through without really taking the time to address any concerns the students might have. There are way too many kids and the teachers and security guards are not able to control them. I took my daughter out of Santiago and moved her to another school.
