I've had four children attend elementary, middle and senior high school within the San Marino School District. All of their experiences were exceptional, from the teachers to the administration, to the academic offerings, to the athletics and to their fellow students. San Marino School District continues to be one of highest rated districts in the state of California.

San Marino is an extremely competitive and rather cutthroat school district. All of the students are very high achieving, with high GPA's and tons of extracurriculars on their side, and parents have overall very high expectations of their children. Teachers are good for the most part, but there are a couple of lazy teachers that slip through.
At San Marino, the student culture is very competitive and ambitious, so it pushes each individual to strive for higher goals. Additionally, a satisfactory number of APs are offered, and the teachers are competent in their jobs. The students are also very involved in a variety of extracurricular activities, ranging from debate club to volleyball to yearbook. This active involvement is complemented by consistently high national test scores, which is the reason why SMUSD has been ranked the #1 school district in Southern California for the past 8+ years.
