Alice Fong Yu Elementary
- San Francisco Unified School District, CA
Parent: As a Chinese Immersion school, AFY is not for every family. My kids thrived in the small school environment but for others, having the same classmates for 9 years can be stifling and awkward. The majority of teachers are great - caring yet having high expectations and able to get the best out of their students. Unfortunately, parent involvement has declined over the years.

Sacramento New Technology High School
- Sacramento City Unified School District, CA
Freshman: The teachers at Sac New Technology High School are very helpful and have classes typically under thirty students. The teachers strive to make students successful with a very small learning environment of under or around 200 students. Many of the students are bilingual between Spanish and English and are willing to help each other in either language. Students work together at large group tables rather than desks, and are able to move freely around the classroom. Much of the work is project based, and students have four classes per semester. Students are able to work at their own pace -- more advanced students are able to take classes with other advanced students and upperclassmen, however there are no AP or Honors classes. The school has a few clubs, and students are allowed to create one of their own if supervision of a staff or faculty is present. Dances are held multiple times throughout the year in order to fundraise for the school, along with other fundraisers.

Sage Hill School
- Private School
- Newport Coast, CA
Senior: Sage offers an incredible education to students who really work hard and aim to achieve success. Classes are easy to get into and the teachers are very kind and supportive. Additionally, the wide variety of clubs gives everyone an opportunity to get involved. My absolute favorite thing about Sage is its Spring at Sage program, where, after second semester finals, students are treated to cool seminars or international/domestic trips. Sage does falter in its student culture, as peer pressure is very high, and people tend to focus more on the grade rather than the learning material. All in all, this is an excellent high school you should definitely consider!
