    "This school was not the best in my opinion because the teachers have favorites and they only cared for the "popular students" when i was graduating from this school the only teachers that cared for their students were just a few maybe five or seven that's' all because they wanted us to go to good colleges and i felt unsafe their too because how the other students would threaten others with violence. I would recommend a different school that does care and for the safety of the students."

    "Ive noticed a lot of terrible reviews about our school from a few years back. i usually dont write reviews but couldnt help but atleast attempt to redeem Santa Claras good name. This is by far the best school i have ever been to. The teachers are understanding and friendly. They provide a safe learning enviornment and make it easy to talk to them even outside of school. Yes, we do have a lot of extended lunches but they are usually to support clubs and promote sports events. I have never been surrounded by such a positive staff and people that ACTUALLY CARE. There are tons of fun and yes educational events the school puts up for the students. It makes learning so much easier. I'm currently in Honors english as a freshman and although i was petrified at first, i have learned so much and its only been 6 months! The teachers make learning fun and not just about sitting down and being bored to death all day. They often incorporate lesson with hands on activites. Because of Santa clara i am thrilled to know that i would like to remain on the Honors path and take multiple AP classes the following years. I dont think i would have aquired the same mind set from any other school."

    "The new vice principal vela came from north monterey county high school last year as principal and their scores dropped 35 points on the cst. When the school hires administrators who obviously are inept, it's time to do a clean sweep of district leadership, starting with the board and superintendent."

    "We moved here just after the 2012 school year had started. My son had a medical issue that required special assistance from teachers and staff. All went above and beyond to help him succeed. So thankful for their insight, assistance and flexibility. Looking forward to this year. Highly recommend Santa Clara High!"

    "Notice how all the good reviews are from 4 YEARS AGO??? This school has turned into a dump. Nothing good about it. Teachers aren't good, other staff isn't good, students aren't good. This is the worst school in California! If you love your kids and value their education, DON'T SEND THEM HERE."
