Posted May 15, 2014

My children started at this school this past school year. I really like it here. The teachers are genuinely concerned about their children, in my experience anyway. My son who is in 3rd grade has been diagnosed with ADD and I am not one who opts for medication. So I requested therapy, which they handled within the school year. Pretty quick from what I have experienced. My 1st grade son is a little bit of a struggle to deal with, but his teacher remains calm and fair with him. My other son is in TK and his teacher is FABULOUS. I love her stern ways, the kids love her too. I regret that we will have to be leaving this school because they have really helped us.

This school as its ups and downs. My son As ADHD and it seems like some of the teachers really don't want to deal with children that have these types of Illness. As a parent I do my best, but at school I think these teachers should encourage positive environments not isolating the student from others. Mrs. Elrod is the best 2nd grade teacher at this school. My son was able to achieve a lot with her understanding and encouragement.

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

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.
