    "I hear a lot of talk about our amazing new campus. It's true; we have an incredible new campus equipped with all of the latest technology. However, with a large campus comes lots of students - 3,000 to be more precise. This school is super over-crowded and I do not recommend t to anyone who has issues being around large crowds. The staff of San Marcos High is not very friendly. The supervisors have harassed friends of mine and so have office administrators. However, most students absolutely adore the counseling staff and they are all very helpful. The classes are top-notch but they're very challenging, which can be good for getting into college but many students struggle with them. If you choose to go to SMHS, you will cry more often than you bargained for, but in the end, it's not a terrible experience. I personally have not enjoyed my 2 years at SMHS and I do not plan on attending next year, but I'd recommend looking into this school and its programs before deciding to attend because it is definitely the right school for some."

    "I can go on about this school, but i won't! Let just say you are better of sending your kids to a charter school! Specially if your kids are mexican! I'm not going to get into details about this, lets just say some teachers are perverts! The assistant pricipal MR. Zeith thinks his the owner if your child! He will BELITTLE YOUR KIDS AND HUMILIATE THEM IN FRONT OF THEIR PEERS! His so out of control with his attitude that the staff will ask him if everything is ok? He needs to learn his place! Don't raise your voice at my child!!"

    "So basically the class of 2012 carried this entire school on its back. The API under this amazing class went from 774 to an all time high of 859 and the school went from unranked to ranked 11 nationally according to US News and World Report. This class fundamentally changed the attitudes of all the staff at the school, who were now uplifted and inspired by how awesome the class of 2012 was. Now that the class of 2012 is gone, the API has slowly dripped from the all time high of 859 to 858 the next year and 857 this year. Also, the school ranking has plummeted off a cliff. As you can see, although no other class can hope to come close to the class of 2012, the positive influence left in 2012's wake has caused all the teachers to be about 329% more effective. If you are to enroll your kid in this school, do so immediately before all of the magic voodoo placed on the staff by the class of 2012 wears off for good and the school reverts back to its middling baseline level. God bless the United States of America."

    "Currently I wrote a review about my school that wasn't that great. I was very angry with the school at that time. I wish I could take it back. I got the chance to talk with the assistant principle, Mr. Zeait, we discussed what happened. It was just a misunderstanding. He was very cool about it."
