    "It's an average school in an above average neighborhood. Suffers from being in the East Side district, which serves the worst hoods in the rest of San Jose. Moderate levels of AP classes and good music program but none of the academic departments stand out except maybe science. The top level of the student body is extremely bright (the school regularly does well in Academic Decathlon) but aren't pushed enough, so few get into Stanford or Ivies. It's fine if you want an average education for your kid, but if you can afford it, live in Almaden and send your kid to Leland."

    "My son attended Santa Teresa High. He was accepted at UCLA, UCSB and SDSU. . If your child is someone who is assertive and independent, Santa Teresa should serve as a good foundation for a top university. My son also attended summer school at DeAnza College during his 4 years at Santa Teresa, which made a huge difference when came time to start university."

    "I am definitely happy that I attended ST for my high school career. I am about to begin my senior year and I must say that the last 3 years have had its ups and downs but overall it's still a great school."

    "Honestly, I've only been here for two years, but I actually really like the school. The teachers are all responsible and are professional in the subjects in which they teach. There are hardly any fights/drama/gossip at all! I'm personally in the AP classes, and everyone in those classes are mature and want to go to a good school like Yale or Stanford. I'm also in the multimedia program, and I am enjoying photography quite a bit. If it wasn't for Santa Teresa, I wouldn't grow to the person I am now. I REALLY love this school! Seriously, if you're a parent enroll your child here, and be sure to put them in the AP classes!"

    "This school has a huge safety issue. In the matter of three weeks my child was approached and threatened to be beat up three times and was not feeling safe. I brought this to the schools attention and all three times and was not given any support. The vice principal of safety is one of the rudest people I have meant in my life and with leadership like that no wonder the school has these issues."
