    "My son just finished his first semester as a Freshman at Santa Susana Highschool. I would highly recommend NOT to send your child there. First of all the campus is completely open and with very little security. There is no supervision in the locker rooms or cameras in case something happens. My son was the victim of a bully who tried choking him to death over two dollars! Luckily my son got free and defended himself. The incident did not change a thing. We tried to move on from this but academically my son began to struggle. I tried to get support from the administrative staff which took a very long time for a response. This school is a regular public school with not much support for the teachers who seem overwhelmed and if a student is in need it is ignored. My son will be going to a charter school in January."

    "This school started out really impressive but then turned out to be a disappointment. My son went to Santa Su for 4 years and had 3 different principals. I must say the first two were really good (especially the 2nd) but the the third and last principal was big mistake on the school districts part. She does not communicate with the parents well and is very defensive on most issues that you might have. The school really went down hill in the last year. There are a lot of really good teachers there but dealing with the administration is not only painful for the parents but the students as well. We could not get any help with our questions regarding college from the counselor and when I went to the principal for help she was very nasty and told me to stop bothering teachers and counselors. I am very grateful to the help of an outside college counselor that I had to hire for the proper guidance and that my son is finally done with that school. I have another child at Simi High. I can say enough good things about that school."

    "I made a mistake in my last review and can't figure out how to edit it! The music teacher does not have a Masters Degree, she has a PHD in Conducting."

    "Santa Susana High is school is Incredible. The support from our teachers and staff is awesome! Majority of our teachers offer tutoring after school. I am an involved parent and have been welcomed in all departments. If you want to be involved log on to: http://www.santasusana.org/parents/organizations/ and make contact, we will show you the way. Our PTSA supports our school events, teachers/staff, and students. Boosters supports all the departments that focus in the Arts. Our Leadership Class supports all departments. All academies have their own committees and do a lot of fund raising on their own. Students at SSHS do not judge or stress about what you are wearing or who your friends are. Everyone is focused. They all know who they are and what they want out of life. My oldest son certified with honors in 2 Academies, Visual Arts with and Major in Animation and Computer Programming. My second son, a Junior; will certify in Music, Law, & Academics. The school has so much to offer, you just have to take advantage of it."

    "This is basically a good school. The one area that I found disappointing was this: Many students have problems with Chemistry and Algebra and higher math. THEY HAVE A POOR TUTORING PLAN TO HELP THESE STUDENTS...the only plan the school seemed to have was informal tutoring by "A" students. This didn't work due to these "A" students not showing up or too few of them showing up to handle the need for tutoring. They need to develope a list of chemistry and math ADULT tutors to help students who need extra help."
