Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High School District Reviews

11 reviews
All Categories
The district gives you a choice between Saratoga and Los Gatos high school. Saratoga is definitely the more competitive one, with teachers that are willing to push students to study more than they would and participate in class. Saratoga has some 11 people that qualify for USAMO, or United States of America Math Olympiad. It is also strong in the sciences. Saratoga High School's music program is also well-funded by the district, with a brand-new music building as of 2017 and one of the top-ranking bands in the region. Los Gatos High offers a more relaxed environment with a larger drama and sports program. Both schools are located in a safe area with a relatively large campus for its student body.
Review Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High School District
This school district always puts the needs of students first and strives for excellence. Teachers are supportive, and athletic teams constantly win CCS championship titles. School spirt is obvious and rallies, lip dub, and spirit weeks are the most fun of all!
The education and resources were outstanding for a public school, however the diversity of clubs and student interests definitely were lacking, for the concentration was mostly on sports, rather than music, art, or professional clubs.
