this school has a great marching band ;)
I received an excellent education from Stockdale. I was not only prepared academically, but I was also able to participate in many strong extracurricular activities that helped me excel in higher education. I have a doctorate now and fondly remember my time in high school. Great teachers, lots of diversity... high school is what you make it, but Stockdale easily offers the best education in Bakersfield.
Stockdale High School excels in educating students who are interested in being educated, especially when it includes full parental involvement. I believe that the reviewer's who gave the school only one star, must be parents who expect the school to do what they themselves should be doing. Get involved in your child's education and turn the TV, Phones, Internet and other distractions off. Instead of complaining start to notice how many students are excelling and ask yourself why your little darling is not doing well... We moved our student to Stockdale High School and she didn't know anyone attending the school, not the staff, not students - nobody. Two years later, she has been massively challenged by the higher level courses, but she has learned better study skills, learned to make friends from all sectors, learned to get help when she needed it and most of all, she learned that in order to get a good education at this school or any other school, a student needs to give it all they have. If your kid is not participating in any of the clubs, does not take advantage of the homework help during lunch or after school, isn't talking to their counselor, and never brings home more than 30 minutes of homework, the problem just might be related to these things and not the school, which by the way, has the highest number of students taking and passing the SAT in Kern County and much of the State.
Easily the most academic school in Bakersfield. I understand the perception that the school is cliquey but it is much better about being inclusive than the other schools on the West side like Liberty or Centennial. I have never been tutored outside and have found the teachers of the AP / Honors courses to be excellent. I love the diversity of this school and how welcoming people seem to be. If you are looking for a school with the best academic extracurriculars (Acadec, Mock Trial, Speech and Debate, Science Bowl) in townand can handle a very challenging course load I would recommend Stockdale in a heart beat.
