    "Junior that attends Muir here! I am in the Engineering and Environmental Science Academy and I believe the teachers really care and will not hesitate to help. It may be a block schedule and I may not see my teachers everyday, but I truly develop a true camaraderie ship with them. Right now I am taking an aerospace engineering class and it may be harder than my A.P. classes, but it is truly a pleasure to take. If a PUSD student wants to pursue engineering (whether it be aerospace, electrical, mechanical,etc.) Muir is the best choice out of all the Pasadena public schools. They also offer an Arts, Entertainment, and Media & a Business academy. I am not too familiar with those teachers but I spent time with a few after school to borrow computers and they are charismatic, fun people. The school also offers a variety of activities. It has the only ceramics class in the district and an after school rockband too! I gave this school 4 stars because although the teachers are great there are a huge amount of careless students. It may be a tradition to not care but the district unfairly send teens that got expelled at other schools here. A student can flourish here if they allow themself to"

    "Please, this school is a disaster as are Pasadena schools in general. If you have children and are thinking of moving to Pasadena, Don"t.....unless you are intending Private education."

    "This school should be closed plain and simple. Talk to students and you will find out the many issues which can not be fixed. The cheerleading by the current administration is because the ship is sinking and they want bodies. Everyone has a choice - any of the other PUSD schools would be better. Be careful and check your facts."

    "John Muir high school is a good school, but needs improvement. From a students perspective I can tell parents what really goes on in the school. First main problem is not only affecting Muir, but other schools in the nation, and that is the budget. The schools low budget limits the amount of student activities, but more importantly affects classes and educational programs that helps students. The last problem are the students enrolled in the school. Muir has a great team of staff and teachers willing to help students learn , however students disrespet teachers and students often pay for this. Muir might become a good school in the future but as of right now it needs a lot of improvement. Also some of the students pier pressure their fellow classmates into doing drugs, which leads to someone going to the hospital(it's happens 3 times so far! )"

    "John Muir Highschool is the absolute best school for my 15 year old son. He was diagnosed with Autism at age two and has developed into high functioning Asbergers. The staff at Muir is excellent in engaging him, teaching him and advising him. He has superb grades, picked up playing the saxophone, got into marching band and is also a part of the ROTC. I am amazed at the young gentleman he is becoming. He is on track to fulfill his dream of becoming an engineer. The Principal is always available to talk to. We bought a home a few blocks away from PHS but told the district we wanted to keep him at Muir. This school is turning around, changing and it's thrilling to be a part of making it happen."
