    I am hosting a foreign exchange student this year and was apprehensive about classes teachers and the logistics of starting on the first day. I couldn't be more pleased with the new principal. Dr. Lewis his AP. secretary and counselor. Great start and a highly supportive and welcoming team. Great school.

    This school is not proactive in handling bullying or harassment issues. They don't keep parents updated and show no concern in resolving issues in a timely manner. Teachers do not communicate with parents or go out of their way to help students. How are our kids going to be the best student if they are not encouraged by teachers and the school. Don't let your son or daughter become a victim.

    Great! The sports here are awesome! I'm a Sophmore and I love it here. I also play basketball. It's better than Centennial for sure. I've had a lot of caring teachers too.

    Ok... I'm a sophomore at this school and some of the teachers aren't so good. Some of the teachers are great and actually want to help but unfortunately only of few of them are that dedicated. Most of the teachers teaching style is more "here you go learn it yourself" so if you're prepared for that then yea this is the school for you.

    do not judge a person until u know the facts the school is judging my daughter even before they have a chance to see the help she has gotten trust me she has done a complete turn around the two people at the school district don;t seem to understand and they know who they are. what needs to be done is someone at the school to take care of the other student that caused the problem instead of turning there heads exactly what the school and school district are doing i hope i don't have to get the news media invloved

    My granddaughter will be a Senior this year and she is taking AP classes and is in the band program. I can't say enough about the School. We LOVE supporting the Band & Swim programs. Wish I had gone to a school like this!!!!

    Santiago High is a great school if you make it great. It's not the schools fault that drama happens(if it does) it's the ignorant students. I am a senior at Santiago High and I love it! Make it great instead of complaining and move on! All the drama would be the same at any other high school anyways so get your facts straight and enjoy your high school life instead of becoming ignorant.

    I was a student that left for very good reason. The teacher's methods for teaching are highly questionable and they do not meet decent standards. There is not enough discipline when it comes to student behavior. Overall this school has made me see that public schools are at a all time low. DO NOT ATTEND!

    Great school with amazing academics sports and music programs. With the large population of students some can fall behind but also teaches how to survive in the academic world and compete for their desired grades. As for the racial tension little to none where as compared to Corona or Centennial High School. Overall an amazing school.

    Santiago is a wonderful school. Our oldest graduated in 2007 and now attend UCLA. Our 2nd child will be a senior in the fall and she has been recruited by some of the top colleges in the nation for academics. Santiago is a diverse campus with a broad range of academics sports and other activities that allows students to achieve and be successful.

    Both our daughters went to Santiago and I have to say that it was a wonderful experience for all of us. The staff was accommodating most of the teachers were wonderful and the girls left there ready for college and life.

    I also graduated 2008. I thought it was a great school most of the teachers were very helpful and I learned a lot!! All I have to complain about are the counselors. They are horrible rude and unhelpful other than that I believe Santiago was a great school!!

    I graduated from Santiago in 2008. The teachers were amazing and the campus life is one of a kind. There are so many clubs sports and activities for a student to get involved. The staff and AP's were so supportive; you could always go and talk to them about anything. GO SHARKS!!!!
