We just moved into a new home so we had to transfer school districts. The school district that my children attended before was pretty good. I did notice that since they both attended this new school they both learned a lot more. I was really suprised... the teachers are really involved.

I have never seen a school that thinks the kids being robots is a positive thing before, but one teacher told me they need to do that robotic thing they do . This staff is so interested in how things look they forget to worry about how things actually are. The summer program is run by uncredentialed, unpaid teachers, but parents are not informed of this. In addition the textbook s for summer After the Bell is not written to match California s state standards, so what is the point. The program is a joke. The uncredentialed teachers are working hard to teach other states standards and things that won t even be on the test! The kids are the ones suffering. This school may have five stars on here, but only because it looks good but in reality that s all they do is look good. Very little real teaching or learning ever goes on in this school, summer or not. Just kids robotically repeating objectives and standards that are not even tested in California.

My son is in Kindergarten and he has excellent teachers that pay very close attention to his learning needs. He is a smart child but not 'gifted' He has a slight problem with his speech and the teachers noticed immediatly and he is getting extra help with that. As a very concerned parent when it comes to education, this is a very good public school with a very involved PTA and staff of teachers. Better than the schools in Huntington Beach where I grew up.

I would not recommend this school if you have a gifted child because there is no gifted program until 4th grade. My son is in 1st grade and was accelerated to 2nd grade for a week on a trial basis until we met resistance from the 2nd grade teacher and he is now on independent study at home because the school was unable to accommodate him. Although, I must say when my son was in kindergarten he had wonderful teachers who took the extra time to pull him aside and do extra work with him. They even sent home a summer packet of work. Thanks to them he was definitely ready for 1st grade, but the 1st grade teacher dropped the ball and took no extra time with him since he knew the work she was giving. I would have to say I do not recommend this school for gifted children.

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.
