    "I love the surroundings, the teachers, and staff as a whole. They give the children so much enlightenment and I am forever grateful. Check out the wonderful staff over there and you will see exactly what I am talking about. Glenn Dennis, is in his 2nd year as principal and already he has positively impacted the school in such a tremendous way. The parents and children alike appreciate the attentiveness the school staff shows. My child comes home every day telling me something he did and enjoyed at school. San Rafael High is a great environment!"

    "I believe that San Rafael High School is a great school. My daughter is in her Junior year and I ve come to develop a wonderful relationship with the faculty. They ve really taken a personal interest in her, and seemingly each child. The new principal is working hard and doing a great job in areas that could use improvement. The faculty are highly qualified. In my experience they ve gone above and beyond to see that each student is successful and receives the individual attention he or she needs."

    "My freshman daughter and I are just back from San Rafael High's back to school night and I would like to share my first impressions: Physical facilities are well maintained, the grounds are clean and my daughter feels safe and secure at the school. Nice architecture too and a good location next to Whole Foods, Montecito Shopping Center, CVS, Peet's Coffee so the campus has a kinda Berkeley feel. About half the school is Hispanic, so "everything" is bilingual which makes it wonderfully easy to learn Spanish. Spanish teacher is a dynamo, Algebra II teacher is a Cal Poly SLO mathematics major, English reading list includes "To Kill a Mocking Bird" and "Slaughterhouse Five" and as these are two of my favorites books, I'm very impressed with the English teacher. Biology teacher is an actively involved in local environmental volunteer. Daughter is running the mile in 8 minutes 20 seconds, so hats off to the PE coach too. Principal mentioned that the school was "crazy fund". Summary, academically rigorous, diverse student population, accepting (no bullying apparent), warm and welcoming school. Character building football team though, please know I respect you for your efforts."

    "I do not recommend this school. They are in the dark ages and to not require their teachers to use schooloop system to post assignments and progress of the students. As a parent, you will be in the dark about how your student is doing until it is too late to correct it. They have an excellent system in place but very few teachers use it. Only 3 of my sons teachers use it to post assignments and only 1 out of 7 of his teachers post their progress and grades. Get with it SanRafael high school!"

    "San Rafael High is one of the S.F. Bay Area's best kept secrets. The school provides a rigorous and high quality educational experience for a diverse student body. Students and staff function as a cohesive community. Not only are the top students accepted to competitive colleges of their choice but they also graduate from universities such as U.C. Berkeley, Cornell, Brown and Stanford with honors. I once heard another parent say that going to SR would increase the chances of getting accepted to ivy league and other highly competitive universities because at SRHS the number of top students is low so your child will be a big fish in a small pond. The implication being that you would not get as rigorous of an educational experience at San Rafael High compared to some of the local private school options. This is simply not true. If anything your child will be better prepared for a competitive university education by San Rafael high teachers. By and large the teachers have high expectations, are experts in their fields and support student learning without coddling them. Students graduate with the skills, motivation and independence necessary to succeed in college and beyond."
