Public Safety Academy
#1 Niche Standout High Schools in Solano County
- Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District, CA
- Rating 3.92 out of 5 26 reviews
Senior: Public Safety Academy is a good school and it prepares you for college. They have a lot of dual enrollment classes so while you attend you'll also be taking classes at Solano Community College. If you're interested in pursuing a career in the Public Safety Field they also provide resources to help you get started. Firefighters, cops, etc frequently visit the campus and provide students with more information about the jobs. The school has a lot of structure so you wear a uniform and address your teachers as sir and mam. The students are referred to as cadets and every morning before school we have formation similar to like the military. The school has a 100% graduation rate and usually, all the seniors go on to college or the military. But besides the educational aspect, I feel like the school needs to work on the school environment. My main problem with the school is that they don't address the frequent racism that occurs on campus daily. The administration tries to ignore the issue.

Dixon High School
#2 Niche Standout High Schools in Solano County
- Dixon Unified School District, CA
- Rating 3.43 out of 5 243 reviews
Senior: I came to Dixon High School after being homeschooled and I was easily able to find friends. Dixon High School is a diverse school and I believe that anyone can find a friend here. Our school provides many different courses such as AP/honors classes, agriculture classes, computer science, graphic design, and more. The only department that is lacking is our foreign language department, as they only provide Spanish classes. I have also noticed that the administration and counselors tend to get frustrated with parents who simply want to be involved in their child's education. My mom has emailed my counselor, asking to set up a meeting, and my counselor never responded. In the case of incidents at school (not intruder related), administration gets frustrated with students for texting or calling their parents about the issue. With those issues aside, Dixon High School has several resources and college help available for students. I truly feel that I am prepared for college and my future.

Mare Island Technology Academy
#3 Niche Standout High Schools in Solano County
- Public School
- Vallejo, CA
- Rating 3.39 out of 5 222 reviews
Alum: MITA has very caring teachers. The very good teachers genuinely care about and connect with their students. They provide good resources for college-readiness, too! One con, however, is that their system to make change within the school's system may be too bureaucratic or unorganized.

Rio Vista High School
- River Delta Joint Unified School District, CA
- Rating 3.43 out of 5 100 reviews
Senior: My experience at Rio Vista High School was great, I had a complete change in academics, personality and just myself as a person in general. Thanks to the staff mostly our consolar, Alduenda. She along with the avid teacher taught us so much about college and the avid teacher was as well the English teacher and she for sure got us prepared for college. The staff gave so much support to everyone ! Regardless of anything the staff was there and helped anyone through their struggles. All the teachers take time to help student outside office hours. After schools they would host college workshops and sometimes during school hours they would provide the reading and writing workshops. Students helped other students in what they were struggling and that was a good way to socialize. The clubs there were also all very supportive, I myself was vice-President of the Acts if Random Kindness club, this club would find ways to spread kindness through the high school. Rio Vista High is a great school.
