Scripps Ranch High School Reviews

Overall, I feel that Scripps Ranch High is a strong school. I had some extraordinary teachers who brought passion for their subject and support for their students into the classroom--they truly shaped my experience for the better. Club communities were also very strong if you sought them out. The academic options are very strong, and the good teachers are often willing to go the extra mile to encourage their student's interests. I did run into issues with teachers and administration. There is an unhealthy attitude of competitiveness and academic pressure among top achievers, and some weighted-class teachers exacerbate that pressure. The school is also very low on resources, particularly printer paper and janitorial staff. The attitude surrounding school spirit in general is mediocre. I'm glad that I went to Scripps, but there are some changes that I would have loved to see.

SRHS has teachers that don't feel the need to make connections with the students, and poor administration that doesn't care if a student is being bullied. The school is falling apart and constantly under construction, kids get stuck in elevators, and there are mice and roaches. The sports get far more funding than any other program, and no other program gets recognition. Many teachers go don't teach, but just put slides up on screens and make us copy them and call it teaching. Many departments use the same tests for every class which makes them harder as almost every teacher doesn't teach everything that ends up appearing on the test. There is a weed and vaping issue at the school, and admin just doesn't care. Kids are getting bullied but the school won't do anything unless it is on video. The school never feels completely safe.
SRHS definitely prepares students for university and higher education. The academics are very rigorous and competitive; I was accepted into almost every university I applied to and I now attend Georgetown University, which is sometimes easier than SRHS was! SRHS is a very academically high performing school; we get high test grades but there is a massive stress culture and competition. I had many sleepless nights or all nighters because the homework is demanding and difficult, but the students are pushed and well educated as a result. SRHS has many resources and facilities to set the students up for success, it is a fairly high income school, but the demanding teachers and administration can seem not to care most of the time, about student welfare or stress. In this large public school, I definitely felt like I had to do a lot on my own with no help from faculty, which makes university a breeze. In summary, the kids are not very happy, but they become VERY smart.
