Pasadena High School Reviews
I liked the people and friends that I was able to meet and make at Pasadena High School. I enjoyed many of the AP classes as well. However, much of the administration does not seem involved enough in the well-being of the students (although a few do). The teachers, for the most part, are caring and friendly. Since it’s a public school, there is no special treatment given to students. You are expected to figure out everything yourself because most of the counselors don’t tell you anything. However, I truly did love Pasadena High School. There were so many classes and people and teachers and clubs that made it so fantastic and amazing. I looked forward to going to certain classes! I even enjoyed homecoming and prom and all the little school traditions PHS has. PHS is a really good school, even with its downfalls. I’ve had an amazing experience. One I know I’ll neber forget. I’m so glad I was able to go to PHS.
Having many family members go to this school, it was nice to keep the family legacy alive. I participated in school activities, was in many clubs and enjoyed being in sports. The teachers actually care about the students and they want to make sure that they succeed and make the best out of their education. I am proud to be an alum for Pasadena High Bulldogs!
The anecdotes I have alone have dissuaded me from saying anything good about PHS besides the basketball team. The failing music program, the stoner culture, the bullying, the painfully inept administrators, and more have convinced me not to send my or anyone else's future children here. The band room has become a sanctuary for stoners to ditch class and interrupt the orchestra or marching band classes. A kid trying to defend the equipment from non-band students improperly handling them was scolded at, and the troublemaker was very lightly reprimanded. This administrator has always punished Mexican people more than black people, and many of my peers can vouch for that. During the AP tests, the counselor (who was a proctor) cut short 1/4 of the essay time on the APUSH test, and the same one failed to help a seizing kid properly in the AP Government test.The social/race disparities are glaring as well, as despite being 60% Latino, the top 10 students are almost all white or Asian.
