I totally agree with this last post! I wish I had moved my older boy here and my younger one sooner as well. It is such a caring and positive environment plus a great education. Thank you staff at Caryn!!!

This is the best school in the entire district. The teachers are amazing and the students love coming to school each and every morning. I wish we could have started my daughter at this school sooner. The staff is amazing and the principle truly loves children and that means so much to me as a parent.

I love that this school is a smaller school. For me that means I know all the Teachers and Administration. My son has been going here since K and is now going intio 4th grade. My daughter started this year in K and is now going into 1st grade. We love the school PTA! Many parents hep out at the school in EVERY way. We love our school!

My daughter started Kindergarten this year and she absolutely loves her school. Teachers and office staff are friendly and professional. School is located in a beautiful neighborhood right off the 210 freeway. Couldn't be happier with this school!

Great smaller school nestled in wonderful neighborhood. High level of parent participation and extracurricular activities. Even though it is one of the smaller schools in the district it provides the same ammentities as the other schools in the acclaimed Etiwanda district.

I have two children at Caryn. They love their teachers and the assistants, and all of the kids are their friends. Neither of them have ever come home having had a bad day at Caryn. Whenever they have an event where parents are invited it is always well done and friendly and done with taste and class. The teachers are remarkable! They truly care about each and every child and are so loving and positive towards the kids - consistently. My children are always singing a new song to me, or telling me a new rule they learned. I would like to be more informed so I am hoping this new email thing will do that as it is hard to keep up with what goes on day to day from a kindergartener and a 1st grader. I would also like a little more computer exposure. Never met the principal.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
