    Es una escuela grande y muy especial para mi pues yo estudie ahi durante 4 a os quisiera regresar ahi para seguir estudiando

    As an alumni of this school I'm sad to say that this school is horrible. Their academic performance has gone down and have scores to prove it. Administration is a joke when handling behavioral problems like bulling. So much for 0 tolerance. Drugs and violence on this campus is prevalent. I switched my daughter to an all girls school and could not be happier. She recently graduated and was able to walk into a 4 yr collage; preparatory is not a standard regimen for Chino High. I truly would have given this school NO stars if it was up to me.

    Chino High School is an outstanding school and offers many programs for our students. My sons and daughters loved this school for the extracurricular activities and classes that they were offered and assigned. Especially the music program parents are always informed of news and the current principal has done his job. I see great achievements in Chino's future and I hope you will apply for your student here. The discipline may not be strict but that's because it doesn't need to be because nearly every single student follows the rules and if not the teachers themselves take action.

    For those of you that have heard that Chino High School is not the 'best' high school in the CVUSD I would like to offer you some insight. My child is currently a sophomore at Chino and has had the most positive experience so far. Her teachers all care about how she is doing and really push her to do well. She has a 4.0 GPA and is in all the honors and advanced classes that they offer. I am a firm believer that a school is only as good as the kids that attend it....and the kids are only as good as the parents who raise praise and support them. So parents push your kids to be succesful and excel where it matters the most....education.

    its a alright school they just need to get more stict on there studdents they let them get away with to many things

    I understand that Chino High being the oldest high school in the district is finally getting some much needed improvements. I also understand that Parents need to attend meetings that are informative. We all work and have homework with our children but we need to also still participate in our kids education especially in high school. Some teachers communicate others don't at CHS. You always can contact the counselor. With the student population that Chino High has I think we are doing pretty good. We have a very impacted high school. Classes that are oversized in some cases. But with the determination of parents and staff we will continue to have our students eligible for our top colleges and universities. We still have and will have many more students who will be proud to say they attend Chino High School.

    The students and parent are really appreciative of any help offered by staff. Staff has a big job ahead of them to improve the school - great new administration!

    Chino High needs more discipline and a staff that cares. The campus is desperately in need of repairs. There is no excuse for this.

    My daughter is a Senior and has seen three principals. I think this group of administration will be great as they realize the maturity of high school students. Over all I love this school it just needs a little growing.

    I feel the core classes offered at Chino High and the teachers are quality. However this is the lowest API ranked High school in the main High Schools in Chino Unified. I transferred my child to another Chino Unified School and the difference is shocking! Chino needs to enforce stricter rules for students staying on campus taking pride in maintaining a clean campus and taking pride in the school in general. More funding is needed for smaller sports and extra curricular organizations. The school needs more parental involvement and desperately needs more attention from the school board. It is a huge disappointment.

  • (8 years ago)

    Classrooms and grounds need more enforcement with dress code violations and basic rule enforcement. Teachers need to have more back up from administration on students sent in for these violations. A more controlled environment would make chino high an ideal campus. Prepare these kids for the real world and have some consequences for their off track behaviors. Tighten up chino...... Ps mr smouse is awesome

    Overall it is an okay school but some of the children need to be disiplined more because they disrupt the class with foul words and loudness. The teachers are wonderful but some are a little to laid back.
