This school is exceptional. The teachers work exceptionally hard and the principal goes out of his way to make everyone a part of what goes on there, exemplified by the fact that he knows the names of practically all students. Comments written below by some individuals regarding the principal are completely foreign to me and to my friends who have had kids there for up to seven years. The focus of this school is on students and student learning. The Rosedale Union School District is the third highest scoring district in Kern County, and American Elementary has been the highest scoring school in that district for the past seven years. It has ranked in the top ten of all Kern County schools for the past seven years as well. Every teacher my child has had has gone out of his/her way to provide support and I simply can't say enough great things about each of them.

My child went here and while their are some amazing teachers here their are also some really bad teachers and the principal will always side with teachers and talks down to parents. If u have a a student won't be a problem but if you don't meet the cookie cut student they suffer :( I'm sad to say my son school failed him stay out of this if you can

I was disappointed to see the negative reviews for American. My Husband and I LOVE this school! We love that it has shorter days. It's not the teachers job to teach my child everything. The teacher's we have come across are great! The principle and teachers are doing a great job! The parent involvement is wonderful! I love seeing all the mom/dads around campus and in the classrooms! We are blessed to have our children at this school!!

Great school!! My daughter has been going to this school since Kinder and is now is 5th grade..I couldn't be more happier with the education she has received here. I have read some of the reviews and WOW! Doesn't sound like the school my daughter goes to.. I have been to a handful of awards assembly's since my daughter has been in Kinder they have one at the end of every quarter, that is unless your child isn't being recognized that quarter.. And they have a big Honor Roll banquet at the end of the year... I, myself am not a "rich", "stay at home" parents.. My husband and I both work full-time, our daughter is still Involved in the activities at school and other extra cuticular activities outside of school and still manages to always have her homework done and excel in school..I admit I may not do as much as one parent said " rich-stay at home" moms may do but the education, drive and push these teachers give to these students is excellent and your right they do expect nothing but the best from these students, which is what I expect from my daughter...!

I am confused about these reviews since I focus on state testing scores...It appears they are doing well in that area considering one opinion was that they had minimum passing requirements (I think that's the state and not the school that has low requirements) Can some one give more commentary on the curriculum and prep for testing?

American Elementary School has not cut the instructional day and some of the comments below are flat out unjustified! Do your research people. If you really looked at their academic day you would realize that it is only shorter by about 30 minutes, when compared to other local school schedules, and that time has been taken from recesses, not instructional time, which by the way exceeds state requirements. Bet you didn't know that! Now, I know for some this is absolutely "horrifying," students need time to play and socialize, but these same people gripe about the lack of supervision. American has thoughtfully reduced the amount of time spent on name calling, hands-on behaviors, teasing, inappropriate conversation, and so on, that children are provided with and subjected to each day with excessive amounts of recess, and I appreciate that. If your child is only getting a 10 minute recess and a 40 minute lunch, guess what?, that's all their teacher is getting too. Anybody think about that? American does an amazing job at providing children with supervised, well thought out, physical activity each week. An extra half hour of recess each day is not on my priority list as a parent.

I was extremely disappointed in the lack of support from the staff. My child was being bullied and when brought to thier attention they ignored and denied it. The playground is poorly supervised. There is no discipline for bad behavior. My son was robbed of joy for the school year.

This school gives the bare minimum to advance your child to the next grade. I had worked with my son before hand getting him prepared for the school year. He learned more from me at home than in the classroom. We also had no programs to attend or participate in. Thanks American for the lack of pictures and memories for a milestone in my child's life.

I was completely satisfied with the school and staff. My son struggles and when I had concerns we ha a meeting and discussed options and steps to improve the experience for him. The staff is wonderful!!!! The school and staff has been a huge blessing to our family. I love how involved principal Bray is with students, teachers, and daily activities.

This school is barely a daycare for children. They have cut the school day so even 5th graders attend 8am-1:30pm. The kids focus on state testing only. My child failed every subject and was promoted to the next grade because she did ok enough on the state test. So now she is in over her head and they are blaming it on poor parenting and her being lazy. We have tutors and she does 3+hrs of homework a night. They refuse to have her tested for possible learning problems because they wont be reimbursed. I cannot say enough abuot how poorly this school is run. Children come last.

This school is geared towards rich families with stay at home moms or nannys. With the short school day, it is expected that the family does the teaching of all subjects and children attend school just for testing. The staff is mostly kindhearted, but due to the leadership they are 100% focused on money and not on the kids' welfare. As a long time supporter of public schools, this school changed my perspective and is making me consider home schooling or private school.

This school does not reward children who excel. There was not one award assembly or program given all year! The principle is very cold and pompus. Instead of investing the money raised on activities for the children it is used for smart boards. Why spend the money there when there is so little to offer the children?

My son did not have any programs or exciting projects all year. Bullying is ignored. The principal is very rude and arrogant. Overall, this school is extremely disappointing.

We are on our 4th school now and I think we are staying! I love this school and so do my girls. The principal is awesome and he holds his teachers to a very high standard and it shows. They also do a very good job of helping the parents be a part of their childs accedemic career.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
