My daughter Isabella Wynn has went to standard going on her 3rd 4th 5th and now on to 6th grade and has improved every year. The teachers are very willing to work with your child when that child has fallen behind in any way, Mr. Rasco is Awesome he really cares about the kids safety and education all while having fun. Im proud my daughter goes to Standard....

Standard Elementary has a great small school feel. The staff is always very helpful and welcoming. They really care about the students and families they serve.

This is my daughters first year at school and she loves standard we were so lucky to get a wonderful teacher like Miss Thompson, she makes every child feel special, and she teaches them so much every day. All of the staff at standard is great! class size is small so the students get more of the one on one that they need. Standard is wonderful!

Growing up in this area, I decided to enroll my child in this school. She is now in 2nd grade. This a good school, unfortunately there aren't music classes until 5th grade, and I feel art/crafts ect., which are all classes that make a well rounded student, have been thrown to the wayside. So the school can get all the nessassary academics in, to bring up scores for the state. Don't get me wrong, I am glad that my child is getting a great education. It just seems to me that school these days is centered around 'how well the kids score, determines how much the school gets.' Also this area is growing so much, yet they haven't started building another school for this district but they have the property to do it. This district has 3 big elementary's that all go to the same intermediate, over crowded.

I really love Standard Elementary. I have a third grader and a kindergartener. The teachers are really focused on helping the students achieve. They challange the students to always do their best. I would highly recommend Standard Elementary. It is a great school. My kids really love it too.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
