California Standards Test (CST)

In 2011-2012 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 baseball program recently took an unknown turn as the new principle let a very successful head baseball coach go Kyle Billingsly. Kyle represented all the qualities you would want in a high school baseball coach but I'm sure the new principle will replace him with someone who has better credentials. Kyle's success over 12-years included active players in MLB top draft picks D1 scholarships and plenty of CIF wins. Looking forward to finding out what the new principle has in mind for what was considered a great baseball program.

    I have nothing but great things to say about everything this school did for my son who graduated in 2012 after going all four years here. My son was so happy to go here. He worked hard in his academics with AP classes and sports. He made amazing friends and participated in yearbook having more fun than I could've ever dreamed of. I'm very proud of the city of chino hills and this amazing school for setting him up for success. The activities director for the school is amazing with their pep rallies and everything these kids have so much love and pride for their school. I've heard great things about Ayala as well but this school was the best decision I've made and recommended to many other parents.

    This is the 2nd year of my son in Chino Hills High. So far I have no complaints about this school. The teachers updates me and replies to my email whenever I have questions about my son's homework or class work as well as his grades and class standing. I hope this school will improve more because I have a daughter that I'm planning to enroll here too in the next 2 years.

    My son will be graduating this year and another son will start there next year. I am an educator and can say from my perspective I have been extremely pleased with the quality education my son has received. The staff is extremely involved with the kids and there is a sense that they truly care. As a parent you still need to remain involved throughout your child's high school experience. Communicate regularly with your child's counselor and your child will thrive. Another aspect I love is the diversity of the student population. There is a true respect for all races and a harmony within rarely seen in many high schools. I have always said that if the world could get along like the kids at Chino Hills High School racism would be a thing of the past. It's not easy to choose a high school for your child but I highly recommend this one for so many reasons. You should definitely visit the campus to see for yourself.

    Chino Hills High School has shown great support for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and has helped make that event a memorable and successful one year after year now. Thank you to the wonderful faculty and staff at Chino Hills High School!

    Four of my children attend this school. They are all learning and thriving. As a matter of fact I hardly ever see my kids anymore. They spend most of their days on the campus.

    I have just graduated from this school yesterday June 10 2009 and I have had some time to think about my past four years here.If you are moving out here or already live here in chino hills and thinking about sending your child here do it.Don't hesitate do it.This school has grown since it has opened and is still growing in its academic programs and there is an excellent staff.They care about the students and in this past class alone many students are going to excellent colleges including 4 Ivy leagues. Your child will also excel in the performing arts here if they wanted to join or are already involved.The band is a great program in the three years since a new director was implemented.It has proven kids in band do better academically since our valedictorian was in band since elementary.Overall this is a wonderful school for your child to attend.

    For the most part my daughter has accomplished what she needs to in her high school career. I think that the principal needs the get on track and relate more to his students. He is on the arrogant side and for all the education that he has received as an administrator he is not in tune with the teens of today for that matter any teens.

    I'm a 2008 graduate of CHHS and believe that Chino Hills High provided me the best education I could receive. The opportunity for growth development and leadership was limitless; there were countless student organizations sports academic organizations that were available to me. Although the school was massive with nearly (maybe more than?) 3 000 students I always felt that it was a small community. Some students feel that they blend into the school but the opportunities are there and the faculty and staff genuinely care about the students and want everyone to be involved. Chino Hills High is a great school.

    I am a senior here at Chino Hills High and throughout my 4 years this school has grown into something wonderful. For one our academic courses are rigorous but students still learn and manage. And our extra-curricular activities arer astounding. The band has blossomed and overcome many obstacles to reach the point that they are at this year and will be great within a few years. The teachers here actually care about the students and help them because they want the kids to pass. The principal has great leadership and bonds with [most] students. The entire student body has an outstanding fill of school spirit and the students actively take part in the community. If I still live around here when my future children are entering high school there is no doubt in my mind that I will send them to Chino Hills High rather than Ayala High School.

    A parent of a junior football player with a 3.8 Gpa & a sophmore spritleader with a 4.0 Gpa honers student very happy with the school. They have great trachers staff students & parents.

  • (7 years ago)

    Overall I believe the school is a good school. No school is perfect and there are a lot of students. Every year it gets more and more crowded. This is my daughter's fourth year. She has had good teachers I'd say 90% of them were into their job. There's always a few that your not happy with. The principle seems to be into the sports teams more than the academics.

    Im a student at chino hills high it is the best school with awesome teachers who offer help throughout there own time and really care about their students.

    Overall Chino HIlls High School is a solid school. As a new high school the district plans on major improvements for this high school. They have been given more opportunitities and benefits as compared to the older high schools in the respective area. Their programs are growing but yet it is still not up-to-par with their counterpart high schools. Their athletic programs are solid but are again somewhat lacking. Their leadership program as compared to other high schools in the area is not up-to-par. They have many academic programs similar to Ayala High School Avid Study Skills etc. It's a growing school. The location is not a prime location but it is still in Chino Hills so overall it's good!

    My daughter is a Freshman at CHHS and I'm surprise to see their classes/curriculum compare to the other high school in the area where my oldest daughter attended. I especially like the AVID class which prepares them for college (it's a 4-year elective. They've already taken their first college visit at Pepperdine University and my daughter was very excited. She said she would like to be a tutor when she's a senior. Cathy

    This school has an excellent english department and a superior band. Their clubs are great and their history department is awesome.

  • (8 years ago)

    Though this is a new school it's environment standards and the atmosphere are all very nice. I've never seen a school with more spirit from the students as CHHS. And getting a six-year accreditation the first time it gets accredited proves my point. Very good teachers and staff with a very obvious well-behaved student body. Clubs are great music programs the band the newspaper the yearbook staff the ASB everything is involoved by talented students.
