I enjoy being in this high school , there are a lot of scholarship opportunities and college prep classes , so beneficial. Administration want nothing but the best for you and for your future. Campus is split into two schools, there’s the flagship campus (San Pedro Senior High School) and there’s the Olguín Campus, (Olguin High School) the space is beautiful on both campuses, at least 5 min away from each other. San Pedro High School has a lot of history , there also many detailic and many memorial pieces of artwork placed within the school. The library located in the main building of the flagship campus, has over 10 pieces of art placed on the walls. Painted on a canvas and gently places on the school walls , these artworks are marvelous and enormous. You won’t miss it!

Though I have been challenged in primarily two classes, I feel as is the instruction can be equated to average standards. Within the STEAM Magnet, there are several great teachers and several who seem to give an impression that they need to improve. Overall, San Pedro High needs more teachers that are experts in their fields and can ensure that their students are receiving the most rigorous education through strict discipline afforded to them in public school. Unlike nearby schools including Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy and Port of Los Angeles High School, San Pedro High School's performance on exams in preparation for college including the AP, SAT, and SAT is low and such participation is correspondingly low. The importance of academic excellence must be readily emphasized for larger rates of success.
My first experience at San Pedro Senior High School was very difficult when it came to finding classes but the environment is very welcoming and most teachers are amazing. All the teachers hereat San Pedro Senior High School are doing their best when it comes to helping students understand and catch up, and the teachers that I have received to become my teacher for my freshman year was so fun to be with. I really am a shy person but the environment in the school made it so fun and I was able to be a little more confident than I used to. The only thing I would probably change about San Pedro Senior High School is how they show students which class they would have to attend at the beginning of the first semester and the second semester. The school would post students' names in the main hallway of the school where most of the offices are located. It's difficult to understand so I recommend my school to have a map for the school around in case anyone is lost since the school is big.
