  • I am not to sure about this school, personally I have never attended it. I have a cousin who is using the virtual online classes/homeschooling and the work she turns in doesn't get graded often.. how is she to excel in moving up a grade if no one is checking and grading her work.. isnt it the schools job to make sure their students goals get reached? The school won't even allow the student to go back to classes due to a harsh record of fighting.. well gee if the teachers were paying attention to the needs of the students the fighting might not occur and she would be in class doing the work assigned.. and not struggleing to make it on her own in homeschooling with no support from the school educators!!

  • This school is as bad as it looks, almost a decade into "constructing" a permanent high school it still proves to be insufficient and cannot manage funds well. Speaking as a student who attended 2002-2006, I would NEVER recommend this school as an option to parents, and if so, hire a personal college counselor because the school does not offer such assistance from a professional. Vasquez might be semi-decent if your child is involved in football, but again, half the faculty are underqualified for their positions (hence the current problems) and endless internal disagreements plague this school.

  • I am very concerned about this school as I am moving to the area but have not heard good things about this school - from people who live in Acton who drive their kids to Santa Clarita and Also from Teachers and Santa Clarita residence. I'm very concerned and think I should cancel my escrow - not a good report card. There is so much money in this area why is the school lacking? Terrible about the suicide last year, this should have been avoided and the school should be held responsible.
