Saratoga is a solid high school and offers a lot to highly motivated students who are already groomed for success! I personally think Los Gatos High is a much more balanced school because although L.G. High scores a few points lower across the board on major tests than Saratoga, L.G. High places emphasis on athletics, extracurricular and yes even social activities to create a much more well balanced adult upon graduation. This is because L.G. High is still predominately caucasian and Saratoga is now 53% Asian. It will always be better to be well rounded in all areas than to just be smart at taking tests!!!

Attending high school at Saratoga was extremely hard for me. The classes are tough, and the teachers aren't quite as helpful as I wish they could have been. The counselors are great though, and they help you with everything. Although Saratoga was nothing for me, who wanted more of an exciting high school experience with sports and friends rather than just study every day, but I can definitely say that it is something for an ambitious student who know what he/she wants. Bottom line, I didn't have a great time, and unless you really try hard to get good grades (which most people do, but have no social life) Saratoga is not your school.

Saratoga High has an incredible academic program, with fierce competition. Taking 5 AP classes and having at least a 4.0 GPA is definitely the norm at this school. The music program is outstanding! With one of the best marching bands in the state,and award winning choir, orchestra and symphonic bands. The music department travels internationally every 3 years also, past trips include Europe and Australia. The new media arts program is also excellent. This school has lots of spirit, its definitely an awesome place to go to high school!

The academic bar is high, and there exists a fierce competitive spirit here at Saratoga High. This scholastic driven environment fosters learning and creativity to new heights and yet the students do not falter, but continue to climb onwards and upwards to expand their horizons and reach their dreams with the support of their peers and teachers.

As a former SHS student, I can confirm the overall academic quality of the school. It was fun, very competitive, and geared us toward the best in higher education. However, if your child tend to struggle academically or socially, this school can be stressful, since nearly all the kids are very wealthy and entitled. Balance is the key-strong academics while still being young and open-minded.

Saratoga has wonderful staff and students. The students are well prepared before going into college. Although there is a bit of competativeness, students never seek to do their best.

Saratoga High School is an ideal environment for academically oriented, highly motivated students. Courses and teachers are demanding. However, for those students who have not yet begun to blossom or who are struggling academically and need support or encouragement, the school can be lacking. One recent addition to the curriculum that is commendable is 'Strategic Learning' a course that teaches and promotes study strategies, test taking skills, etc. Principal this year is new.

The teaching level at saratoga high is overall top-notch. Teacher and administrator retention is also very high, always a good sign. The school has an excellent range of school run extra programs and student run school clubs. The music department is especially top rated. Saratoga high also benefits from a very active, involved and committed parent community. The setting of the school is attractive and the campus well maintained. Several areas that are at acceptable levels but that could use some improvement: the school lunch program - not nearly enough fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy snack alternatives. This is of real concern due to the current epidemic of child diabetes nationwide. Lastly, some aspects of the science/technology programs are not what you would think, considering it is silicon valley after all! example: not much administration level support of the saratoga high robotics club or science club.

This school can be incredibly stressful for the students. The teachers do not always give as much help as they should, and in some cases increase the stress level more than is necessary. There are many bright and talented students which helps the school's atmosphere. There is a great lack of school spirit, however, and very few students attend many of the extra curricular activities offered. There has also been problems with cheating and the lack of ability to keep an administration for longer than a year.

A lot of parent support for everything. Seems to have too much pressure on students sometimes. Very good math and science departments, but other departments are good as well.

As a coach at this high school I got a direct view into the after school activities. Seems that there is a lot of opportunity for such activities. The school seems very supportive of their students who are very well behaved and respectful. Then again, it is one of the most affluent areas in the valley.
