    I have been pleasantly surprised by this school! I was initially concerned based on the area and neighborhoods. The staff I have encountered thus far are so very helpful and pleasant and eager to solve any issue they can. The athletics department is AWESOME! The school has so much spirit and pride and while it's obvious at times that some of the families may not have a lot of money or resources their children make up for it in kindness and manners. Each time I have been on camps the students were so nice and polite and courteous FAR more so than I've seen in other more affluent neighborhoods. The campus is gorgeous and very functional and well maintained. Our child has been treated well by staff and students alike and it's a wonderful breath of fresh air! Money and fancy neighborhoods do NOT a good school make. I am so happy we chose Panorama!

    Hello. My name is Zeke Zendejas and I am the Store Director at the Food4Less in Panorama City. I know many parents and students that shop at the store. I would like to encourage the teachers/parents to join my company's Community Rewards program. This program gives back to the non-profit organizations in the community. It helps raise money for sports activities books or computers your school may need. It gives hundereds of dollars back quarterly. Please visit our website at and click on Community Rewards. Feel free to call me @ (818) 830-7085 or stop by the store for more details.

    PHS as a fabulous school in which to work and is incredibly safe. The students are wonderful DESPITE the surrounding neighborhood and the staff is committed to supporting student success in high school and life beyond. Every school has its issues (drugs fights gangs etc) but I see the PHS staff striving to improve student motivation and academic success. Go Pythons!

    This school is an ok school. The area is pretty bad though. There is a lot of drugs and many bad influences there I always see kids smoking during P.E.

    My son is currently a freshman at Panorama High. I was able to enroll him there through open enrollment and continue to be glad about the decision I made. My son is having a great year there. The teachers keep their students very busy with their schoolwork. He is also part of the football team the coaches are awesome they guide the boys by example they also played the sport in their own school days. I feel very comfortable leaving my son in the hands of his teachers and coaches. Thanks to the teachers my son comes home excited about his day and his future.

    This school evn though is new it offers a wide variety of services for students who need help with their homework and many afterschool activities as well. It also has a very safe campus. There are frequent random metal detection searches. Overall I would definetly send my kids to this school.
