There are some truly fantastic teachers at this school, in STEM, english, and art, and a lot of motivated, intelligent students. Overall, we have been very pleased with the education our teen received here.

When I spoke to a counselor, she said more than once that they don't accept interdistrict transfers from other schools. You HAVE to live in Palo Alto to attend this PUBLIC school.

An old low class chemistry teacher said F* word during a class. Principal ignored our complain. Took the assistant principal a while to respond. My son was the victim. He will never have a chance to succeed in this culture.

We moved from overseas and have always gone to private Independent schools. Gunn High School in Palo Alto is a private school education in a public school setting. Academically rigorous, socially tolerant and accepting with a fair amount of elective choices. Counseling programs are vast and diverse. Most students go to the University of THEIR choice. Many teachers are really stars... some kindly and more traditional... Our daughter is a freshman there and really loves it.
