Diego Hills Charter School Reviews

I love how the teachers are very involved and that the time I went in was based purely on my own schedule. I was glad that I had the opportunity to graduate so early and be able to feel a bond with my classmates and teachers. Diego Hills helped me through my struggles, from taking care of my grandparents to taking care of my siblings. I have attended two other high schools and none of them were quite for me. They were too much pressure and stress. I found my perfect high school when I attended Diego Hills because it less stressful and they do not pressure you as much. I was glad that there were no cliques or groups that would hang out, as that made the students connect more with others.

When I first went to Diego Hills I transferred from another high school. They immediately got me all the classes I needed, and the support along to finish my classes at my pace. The teachers and Staff are WONDERFUL and so helpful and helped me enroll into the college I currently am in now and graduated with one of their Scholarships. I thank them for everything they have done to help me get to where I am now.
I worked one on one with an incredible teacher who tried her best to have me accomplish everything I wanted to do. She took her time to help me. I was able to graduate high school on time with everyone else from my previous school despite being 1.2 years behind everyone else.
