    I have to give this school a low rating even though my son attends. This may be his first and last year here. There is hardly any parent principal involvement afterschool activities (compared to the other SDHS-or even some of the other schools in the district that we visited) and it s hard to even reach anyone during the school hours. There are a few teachers who are in it to win it; but I sat in on one of my son s classes and the poor business teacher was being walked all over. How can they teach leadership skills when they can't control their class? It was hard for me to watch! This is one of the low performing schools and it shows in the leadership down to the test scores.

  • (9 years ago)

    This school is focused on buisness and leadership. The students get involved with actuall business and finances of the school to get hands on experience. The teachers have amazing relationships with students and also the parents. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations to join 6 different high schools on one campus a nationally ranked basketball team and a diverse ethnic background. I'm proud to be a san diego high graduate!
