Providence High School is an interesting institution. It occupies a unique position among high schools in the San Fernando Valley - being a small, mediocre college prep school intimately attached to a healthcare institution. It certainly has it's problems - horrible food, virtually no school culture, extremely apathetic students, a significant divide between high-performers and low-performers (and social stratification in general), the wide variance in teacher quality, sub-par medical focus program, and questionable administrative decisions. Still, overall, it's not the worst option. It's certainly better than most public schools in the area. It has a burgeoning arts program, a steadily growing technology focus program, a rigorous (although not entirely efficient) college-prep infrastructure, and an impressive suite of honors and AP courses for a school of its size. My one major complaint is the cost. It is more expensive than attending a UC. Not the worst option.

Providence High School does an excellent job in making all the students feel they belong there. They are a very inclusive school and the faculty/staff truly does know every child's name and background. The school is progressive and always looking for ways to better their teaching methods for all types of students. It is a very kind and caring community and we highly recommend it!
This school has something for every kind of student. I took a ton of AP classes and really any class that I wanted they would help me get into. They even held an AP class outside of school hours for two of my friends alone as they wanted to self study fot one of the less common exams. My less academically inclined sibilings took classes more aligned with their interests, like drama and sports.

The only complaints I would have would be the medical focus program as you can better spend your time taking more AP classes to get into good UC or private colleges instead of the mandatory elective "health" classes and that homecoming sucks (prom and the back to school dance were more fun, homecoming was always so cheap with flat soda and nothing to do for it being like $50). Media and Tech focus are fantastic though, especially since the school is so close to all the studios.

The community really gets to know eachother and I always felt like I belonged there.
