The principal isn't that fair and involved at this school. Depends on who your kids' teacher is(are), you get different levels of academic results. Some teachers are really nice and go beyond to help out though. PTA is highly involved.

Hello Parents, I have 2 kids going there. They are in 5th grade. I am very disappointed with the school. I moved to Arcadia 2 years ago because I heard of the District's academic reputation. Well, I am sorry to say my boy, who is in fifth grade has learn the minimum, during the whole year. They did not even have one science test. While my girl, also a fifth grader, could hardly keep up with the homework and tests. My boy was in a combo class, where one teacher teaches 30 kids from 4th and 5th grade.

Camino Grove academic programs and teachers are terrific. Music education is avaiable beginning in 4th grade. Physical education programs are lacking and below par.

We moved to Arcadia because of the high academic standard found in their public schools. My son is so proud of his school and is learning so much in 1st grade. The teachers and staff at Camino Grove surpass my expectations. I also work for a public school in Los Angeles and I cannot express how pleased I am with this school. We are looking forward to putting my daughter into kindergarten in two years.

My daughter was a past student here and loved it. The teachers were excellent, especially Mrs. Pahan. She went above and beyond to help the students and used love as well as discipline in her teaching. I noticed there was alot of parent involvement through a variety of programs, I donated time as an art docent. Students love this school.

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.
