    "The campus is very nice, has a college feel. The office staff very friendly. My only concern about SCPA is that when I compared different middle school and high school API scores within the last 5 yrs in Southeast San Diego, Paradise Hils and South Bay, so many scored a lot higher than SCPA! I compared all of them with SCPA (last 5 yrs) and I was disapponited. SCPA has excellent Language scores, but their chemistry, math, science, biology, physics and algebra scores were really bad compared to other SDUSD middle and high schools. I couldn't believer that. Sure, your child is getting exposure to the arts (singing, performing, music etc...) quite a benefit, but unless your child (or you) really expect your child to become a professional actor or musician, is it worth such low scores in all other academic areas? My kids want to be doctors and engineers. SCPA's arts program was appealing, but in the end it was jointly decided that they needed a school with strong math and science scores. They now go to another school on University Ave that has EXCELLENT math & science scores. In the long run we feel that will benefit their long term career goals and we're happy with the decision."

    "My son goes to the high school. He auditioned to get in. I am seriously considering taking him out. First off, it's way overcrowded. On parent teacher day I was horrified to see in my son's art class there were so many students that there were not enough seats for all of them. About a dozen kids literally had to stand in the back. Second, I've called on a few occasions and left message, once to my son'e counselor and another to front staff, and not ONCE have I received a call back from staff. My son has ADHD but tested into gate, but I see he is falling through the cracks more. Unless your child can fend for himself without a seat or attentive staff, then they too will fall through the cracks."

    "If I could rate this school I'll do it with zero, my daughter had the most horrible time there, she was victim of bullying there. If your are thinking to send your children there think twice, they have wonderful artistic teachers but have the worst criteria to act to protect the students. I am not the first parent to have to remove my child from SCPA as a result of inaction about bullying. SCPA throwing away a talented, har working student and protect people that does not deserve this privilege . I will never recommend SCPA. I could not do it in good conscience."

    "I can now say retrospectively that SCPA is a very good school. As a parent, having seen firsthand, my children experience other SD city schools and now appreciating what SCPA has to offer."

    "This school is terrible. My son went there. Most of the children are mean and cruel, in the middle school. The high school might be good, but the middle school is terrible. The teachers act like they do not have enough time for there students, they just make them do busy work all day, without even paying attention, students are on they're phones. They do not deal with issues well. They waited over 3 months to deal with a threat issue with my son. They need to hire new vice principals. Honestly TERRIBLE. They are not well trained. They did not even solve the problem with my son. Terrible school. I wish I could rate it ZERO STARS."
