Calabasas High School Reviews

The school is in a very "sheltered" neighborhood with a lot of wealthy parents who are a large part of their kids' school lives. Safe as can be, the occasional theft by a student is overshadowed by its many years without any danger on campus, with a peaceful, academically-minded environment. Although test scores are high, unfortunately math and science are not the school's strong suit, and there isn't much to get involved with in these subjects on campus. Resources are however provided enough for students to get a solid understanding of these subjects. Music is the school's strong suit - its choir and bands (which I was a part of) are nationally competitive year by year, and the school hosts a multi-million dollar Performing Arts Theater where the school's students produce this music. All in all, it is a great school!

I attended this school all four years. Compared to other schools, this school is exceptional in terms of academic rigor. The tests prepare students for their AP exams, however self studying is a must if students want to excel. Everyone is competitive, which can be a good thing because it drives students to become over-achievers. The music and arts department is outstanding. The math, English, and history departments are superb and definitely challenge students and prepare them for their AP exams. The science department definitely needs work (there is a lot of self-studying that is done on the student's part). Overall, students find that other schools are much easier in comparison. Calabasas High challenges students but isn't overkill, per se.
When looking back at my years in Calabasas High School, I have nothing but amazing memories! It was at this high school where I meant my best friends and where I was introduced to concept of community. It was undeniable how friendly the community is at Calabasas High School. What really stood out the most to me were the teachers! Every teacher always made sure to take the time to make sure I was performing well in their classroom. They were all easily reachable at any time and always took the time for their students. If I had to see one thing change, I would like to have seen bigger push for students to join the campus clubs. Overall, my experience at Calabasas High School was absolutely amazing. I feel so honored and grateful to have went to this high school and I look forward to hopefully send me kids there for grades 9-12!
