Sutter seems like a great fit for our kids. Our boy has just started kindergarten there, and loves it. His little sister gets upset when we drop him off, because she wants to stay and start school, too. It's a very positive place, and the teachers seem genuinely interested in taking the time to address each kids' needs. I don't have 30 other kids, so this is the first school our kids have been exposed to, but it seems like both will be very happy here in the years to come.

Two of my four children attended Sutter from K-%. Great school! The staff is very qualified and helpful. The other think I love about Sutter is the true diversity withou racial groups. All children accept and respect each other!

We moved into this part of town because of the excellent reputation Sutter school has compared to the other schools in town and have not been disappointed. My children excel in all areas largely in part to the resources and opportunities the staff presents. It is up to the parents to involve their children in order to reap all the benefits. Most of the other schools in town scare me! Visit them right after school and see.

This school does not have enough effective discipline. This school needs an over-haul of staff.

AUSD has more that a dozen elementary schools and does not do a good job at keeping the older schools up to date (computers or facility). The teachers are good. The principal, Sammy Damico, is great to work with. However, there are just too many 'out to lunch' parents.

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.
