College Park High School Reviews

If you are a new student/Parent it can be difficult to find information on the registration process online. You have to communicate with the school office via phone to get any class and school registration information. Voicemails and emails go into a black hole. For local middle schools there is a student campus tour and Parent Night orientation (advertised on the school website only) for early Spring January to March. The school requires incoming students to make an appointment on campus in the school office with their assigned Register. The student has to go to the appointment alone. Parents have to fill out Homelink contact information beforehand or school/class registration process can not be completed. Strongly advise students and parents to read “Rate My Teacher” site reviews prior to selecting programs, teachers and classes. If at all possible get coach reviews before selecting sport teams.

Coming to the end of my senior year and I am relieved and thankful to be leaving. College Park isn't a walk in the park. While aware of the limitations of the huge Mt. Diablo school district in terms of class size and funding for programs, the administrations mismanagement is ridiculous. The morale is horrible for teachers and students alike. I am thankful for the few wonderful teachers that I have an but struggle to overcome the incompetence of the others. There are not enough AP classes, not enough variety in the curriculum, not enough guidance personnel and a shortage of supplies such as current textbooks. The school district is too large and too administrator heavy and this school is suffering.
The primary thing I like about College Park are the academics. I appreciate that my school offers a wide variety of general education classes and electives. It has a strong program to educate students who are interested in careers in the medical field. The student body is very diverse and the school is quite safe overall. There are many committed and knowledgeable teachers. However, there are also a few who tend to be gossipy and overly familiar in their treatment of students. The environment at College Park is not very close knit and the level of school spirit is below average as a result. The restrooms are often unclean and the school as a whole is infested with cockroaches. The Spanish language program is weak compared to the French and German programs. The administration is fragmented and often does a poor job of spreading the word about important dates such as SAT and AP test registrations and making significant changes at the school.
