    "The money in the school is not managed well; There are classrooms with mold growing and leaks and instead of fixing them a new floor is put in a decrepit shed I have yet to see used. The bathrooms are absolutely filthy and in a constant state of repair. The food has little to no nutritional value and is not fresh (a peer of mine found mold inside her orange).Instead of cutting a class where students do nothing, French and Spanish for Spanish Speakers were cut, leaving the students with only one language choice. The staff is a mixture of good and bad: the current co-VP, Mr. Argulas, is overbearingly creepy and honestly is just a full on pervert and certain staff members are very openly racist or homophobic. However, there are some exemplary staff such as Mrs. Bobis, a school counselor who actually remember your name and help as much as they can. Overall the school is in need of much improvement."

    "Serra High has teachers that care about your education and invest extra time to prepare you for college. There are many resources accessible in order to help students succeed. Computers, tutoring, etc are available for any student. The school environment is healthy and comfortable."

    "There have been a lot of changes through the years, multiple principals, staff and growing pains. Overall its a school of change, and they are growing. They struggle to let you be who you are and will adapt to whomever the parent is with the biggest paycheck."

    "At Serra High school, the teachers are subpar and the curriculum is standard. There are few teachers that go above and beyond and make your high school experience great, however others sometimes lack enthusiasm. The student body is very diverse and our ASB is involved greatly with the school through dances, pep rallies and our traditional "Dawg Pound" at sports events. Sports at Serra High are well rounded, with the field hockey team being league champions for multiple consecutive years. Overall, Serra high School is a good school, it's just what you make of it."
