One of the best schools. Mrs. Breese and office staff are wonderful. Mrs. Choi is the best teacher my daughter has ever had. Her involvement with the children are amazing. I have never seen a teacher care or take interest the way Mrs. Choi does with all her students.

One of the best schools I have ever seen. The new principal Mrs. Breese has been the principal I have seen.

While I am disappointed at what California public schools in this area fail do offer, due in part to budget concerns, Peter Marshall has some amazing teachers. Mrs. Erickson and Mrs. Yourshaw are 2 of the best teachers I have ever met.

My children have been attending Marshall for 5 years. The availability of sports is limited. My children advise me that P.E. is running around the yard and that is it. maybe 1x or 2x a week. I do see parent involvement. The discipline could be better, and safety from bullies could be watched more.

My oldest daughter has attended Peter Marshall for four years and my youngest just started this year. Most of the teachers are great and really love their job. The PTA works very hard for the school. My only complaint is the large hispanic non-english speaking population. There needs to be more stress on learning the english then accommodating them. However, we do have ELD classes, a new preschool class, and free english classes. Despite this language problem, we have very active parents. We are proud of our school!

This school, like the others in the district,stresses math and reading. Not as much emphasis is placed on social studies and science. Music is available, but there is no specified computer lab time. Parent involvement is good.

I have loved Peter Marshall school and the teachers there. My son has been there since 3rd grade and is graduating this year. I only hope that my daughter has the opportunity to attend there also. They are wonderful and the teachers are great.

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.
