    "The school and the overlying district consider finances as a higher priority then student service. Resources (staff and materials) are cut to save money and a greater burden on the remaining resources. There is an abysmal lack of technology use and education at Sonora. Do not except students to be given anything but precursory knowledge of technology. Policies are in place to improve test scores with out serving students. What is best for students is systematically not the highest priority."

    "The extracurricular activities being offered are basically the same, generic courses offered at other schools. Parental involvement is clearly lacking, as behavioral issues are higher than the several others I've checked out, and these conflicts go deeper than statistics, which otherwise are misleading. Thanks in part to lack of funding, the academic programs serve only the students already conditioned to be mindless drones for a life in society. In other words, this school is really restricting on creative freedoms and on those, especially, whose potential has not been recognized. While this campus is generally safer than that of cross-town rival, La Habra High, that doesn't excuse the negligence of the aforementioned behavioral problems that aren't as common on other campuses. The teachers themselves limit imagination, practically punishing individuality. This is definitely not a school for a mind set on artistic occupations."

    "It is a amazing school to be part of. The staff really cares about the students and has great science program. Although, it doesn't have reputation like sunny hills and troy, their academic is high and has more friendly enviroment."

    "Sonora has some great teachers who have been there a great number of years. The Scoience department is amazing, featuring California Teacher of the Year Jack Hawkins. If your kid likes science this is the place to be."
