: : Who is the Girls Varsity Girls Basketball coach at Calabasas High School? I hear great things about all of there sports. Is the girls team any good. I live in Lancaster but will be moving to West Valley area in the summer all I hear about is Calabasas is a great school Please help. Thanks.
: Calabasas is not a strong program. They are 3-20 and just not a lot of talent. As a school, it gets good ratings, but we have some friends there and they don't like the entitlement atmosphere there (school not team).
: Top public school basketball program in West Valley is El Camino Real in Woodland Hills. Team is one of top in SFV/VC/SCV area and school is highly rated. There are a lot of kids there though (like 3800-ish). Have friends there too and outside of size they are pretty happy.
: If you want private, Chaminade in West Hills is still strong as a basketball school despite what people think. School is good. High teens $$ wise, which is average for most privates.
: Louisville is also in high teens $$ wise, but sports are not really emphasized there. Basketball team was down this year, but mid-season got a big senior girl from volleyball team to play and they have really improved in their division.
: Viewpoint is improving basketball wise but it's 30K+. It's very hard academically. The school is small student wise, which while good for school, is not always good for social part and friends.
: If you go farther West, Agoura has a solid program almost every year. School is rated well. Like the coach.
: You will get a lot of garbage on this board, but some of us will actually try to help you!
: Good luck!
Very honest and informative. Lots of good points.
Go to a school where your kid has the opportunity to :
1) Be challenged academically but not overwhelmed
2) Be able to make an impact right away as a 4 year starter
3) Be comfortable in the school environment and around her peers
As a parent you should consider cost / convenience / safety.
