    "All these reviews make me laugh do you guys really believe these people like really? Some of them DONT EVEN ATTEND THIS SCHOOL! If you want to know something just ask one of the students like me, I'm doing very well in this school better than I have in any other school, since I've been here. All those things that you HEAR are just things that you HEAR you don't actually SEE what happens during school hours so it's best to shut your mouth until you meet the real Vallejo High...! I mean yeah we have fight... But so does evey other school in the world Yeah we have kids that love shoes & expensive clothes... But you will always find kids like that in every school in the freakin world! Yes Vallejo High has flaws but guess what?... So does every single school in the world We are not all devils but at the same time we are not all saints, nobody in this school is perfect, we all have our flaws but we make it work! As soon as you find that school full of saints & goodygoodies I'll believe that my school is full of stupid little demon children...! Okay? Okay?"

    "THE BEST: Small learning communities are taking off and putting more power in the hands of teachers--some of these programs are really amazing! PROS: VHS is in an upswing and is attempting to improve quality of life and education for students through extracurricular activities, electives, Academies, and other support systems. There are many dedicated teachers and staff members who are like family for the students here, and most of the [almost all new] administrators are working hard to create positive change. CONS: Despite all of the efforts, teachers and admin are still under the thumb of a blind district office; and hands are tied by bureaucracy, lack of funding, inadequate recourses, inadequate facilities, and a lack of organization or structure from the top down. Too many new programs and systems fail because, like the students, they are pushed through without enough support. THE WORST: Students are being pushed through classes even when they fail (e.g. promoted to Algebra 2 when they haven't passed Pre-Algebra), and an astounding number of classes are STILL being covered by subs, or NO ONE, a full semester into the year."

    "This school is just terrible. All the kids here are just a bunch of idiots. All they do is praise shoes like if they were Gods. Some our ridiculously out of control. They fight for the stupidest things. Like girls will fight each other over for boy if they're thirsty, be called a bad name,etc. The boys fight for weed and who knows what else they might as well be thirsty too. Theirs really nothing to help this school.The church next to the school probably pray for those little demons here. The teachers are really nice people but its just the students. Do not come to this school. It is not a safe place to go. Every day you send your child their your risking his or hers life everyday when you drop them off their. Again do not come to this school I recommend to move out of this city as fast as possible get section 8 or a loan move out. DO NOT COME ANY NEAR THIS SCHOOL AND CITY. Once you go in you never come out right."

    "This school practices social promotion, promoting students to the next grade up even if they got F's in all their classes. Some kids start high school even though they have not passed a class since the 6th grade. Kids are pushed into Algebra 2, Biology 2 and even French 2 who failed Algebra 1, Biology 1 and French 1. Only about 50% of the 12th grade class has enough credits to graduate so there are many failing students in every class, bored out of their minds, who disrupt the class. Those students should not be in classes they are not prepared for as it does them no good, denies kids who should be there the best education possible and denies the teachers a reasonable chance to teach all their students. It also fools parents into believing their child's education is progressing when their child's education is, in fact, almost non-existent. Their child is "progressing" to the next grade but their child is not learning nor passing. This is a crazy system which benefits nobody. It artificially increases the attendance rate which makes it appear as if there are fewer drop outs. This is great for the administration's statistics but, in reality, it only masks a very bad problem."

    "If you even lucky to have a teacher, I doubt he or she would be able to control the class. I find it sad that this school is so ridiculously stupid. The whole place looks like a prison and I agree with that. Since most of the students are monkeys who can't last a single minute without a fight or argument with a teacher or student. This school is so bad you should just go to smelly MIT. That's real advice don't even bother visiting this school. The school is one of the worst in the Bay Area. I'm glad Vallejo High spawned the Zodiac killer, it makes sense because this school is for bloody twats!"
