This school and it's staff always try to improve themself, they listen to the parents and their concerns and try to give a solution the best they can. You can reach them anytime and support you as much as they can.

My child is learning a lot in First Grade. She loves her teacher (Mrs. Davies) and is very excited to attend school. It seems like this teacher has a passion for teaching and it is very nice to see the way she interacts with her students. She truly cares for her students.

We absolutely love this school. My son is in 2nd grade and it is a perfect fit for us. I was sad to see a couple of really negative reviews. This has not been our experience at all. The teachers and staff all know my son's name. Super awesome art projects. Parents are really encouraged and welcomed to be in the classrooms. We have our spot.

Allen School is a wonderful school. My oldest son is now in the 5th grade and my youngest just started kindergarten there. The teachers and help know ALL the students by name. It's a school with a community feel. Ms. Faddis is friendly and fair. I love this school for my kids and I wish they would increase to K-8 so my kids could come here longer! :) I have volunteered in the classroom and the teachers are great. They do the best they can with strapped resources. I wish I could volunteer more. Helping out a few days a month helps the teachers A LOT and my kid LOVES seeing me in the classroom! :)

Allen School offers great teachers in a smaller school environment of approximately 400. Hopefully with the influx of many new kindergarten students that parent involvement will increase. I would encourage Allen School parents to get involved. What makes a great school is not only the teachers, but the parent and student involvement. I also wish that Allen School had maintained their Magnet school for the Arts status and retained these programs. Or perhaps seek musical programs and other arts programs instead of continually cutting them out completely. Other CVESD schools have retained their musical programs. Also there needs to be more academic specialties offered. Perhaps seek additional help in grant research.

Terrible and disturbing school experience. I am disgusted by the treatment of both my son and myself. Words like disrespectful, inappropriate, and unhelpful come to mind. My son s Kindergarten teacher and the noon duty staff are very negative and do not treat students with respect or developmental appropriateness. The teacher stigmatizes the children, labels them, denigrates and demeans them. Teachers and staff yell and scream at the children. The kids are scolded, chastised, and criticized unfairly. Kindergarten students are coming home and complaining to parents about being stressed out! Threats are used and punishment is doled out that exasperates difficult situations rather than remedies them. I caution any parents who are considering sending their child to Allen. Don t rely on the school s reputation; schools change over time. There s lack of transparency at this school so keep your eyes and ears open, spend time at the school, communicate with other parents, and above all else, speak up if you don t like what you see. Our experience is not isolated, even though this is what the principal and District would like you to believe. Principal was unhelpful and rude.

Allen School is a well established school in the Bonita community. The vegetable and butterfly gardens are the outdoor highlight. The cafeteria has improved immensely with the choices offered and a lot more healthy than the past years. The school runs on a very small budget because it is a small country school so it is necessary to make yearly donations or participate in the fundraisers. My two daughters have attended Allen and both are well prepared each year to move on to the next grade level.

I personally met with a primary grade teacher in rewards to one of her students. Although, her student is an emergent learner, the teacher had nothing positve to say about her own student. Everything she said was extremely negative. It is very dismaying as an educator to see a peer behave in that manner. Additionally, the meeting was cut short. She then said she had other business to tend to. I stayed for a few more minutes and checked out the ambiance of the school (which was great by the way) but a few minutes later, I see the teacher congregating wiith other staff members and laughing and giggling. Her "other important business" didn't strike me as...important! It is shameful to know that a teacher rather meet with her school friends than to entertain the burning questions of parents. Shame on on you!

Our kindergartner loves Allen School and her teacher. They have a lovely garden and the staff and teachers are kind, approachable, and helpful. It's true that they don't have any field trips planned, but they have had six guest presenters so far this year! My kid loved the animals the Humane Society brought in to share. I think it's better to bring guests in than to take a bus full of 5 year-olds out! I do with they had more open library time. The fund raisers are non-stop, but I am guessing it's just an attempt to bring in money to keep the drama teachers and the librarian. We love Allen School.

My child just started here and she really likes it. The only things is that they have fundraisers just about every month, but the younger grades k-3 especially Kindergarteners do not get to participate in many activities, no field trips at all..they are basically confined to the classroom which is really boring. I am satisfied with how my child is learning here but I have to admit I am a little disappointed....

My kids have been going to this school for 3 and 4 years and I'm very happy with just about everything! The key is parent participation - if you want your child to do well, you have to be involved - whether it's volunteering in the classroom or, if work prevents you from being able to volunteer, then be involved in all aspects of their homework and extracurricular activities. The school can't do the job of the parents! The reason for all the fundraisers is to try to compensate for the budget cuts as much as possible. The principal makes it very clear that we are not expected to participate in multiple fundraisers, but rather that different fundraisers are offered to accommodate different interests and hopefully generate some much needed funds for the school. Then maybe the kids can have more field trips! My kids are doing exceptionally well (reading as much as four grade levels above their current grade) and I'm convinced that it is the combination of great teachers and our continual participation as parents in as many aspects of their school life as we have time for.

My son has been at this school since K and is in his third year now. The principal is great, willing to listen, and creates an atmosphere of fairness and understanding. The teachers are "hit and miss" as it is in every school, some are fantastic and some are well, less than fantastic. The school very much creates a small town feel and with that comes the traffic congestion unfortunately. Overall, the experience has been a good one.

This is a great school. The principal is AWESOME. Shes so friendly and greats all the kids infront of the school very morning. It is a fairly small school thats very old but has a flower garden and a vegetable garden that the kids get to help maintain. The two issues I have with this school is traffic and my daughters teacher. My daughter teacher needs to retire or something. shes way too stressed out and takes it out on the kids due to her lack of control of herself. And for the traffic It has to be the worst. When 11 year olds are directing traffic you can expect many delays in dropping your kids off since the school only has one area to drop off on the westside of the school. There is only one way in/out to the drop off area/parking lot of the school. The school needs to open the gates on the east side and it would probably prevent many kids from being late due to the traffic

I have been at Allen Elementary for 3 years. I have been impressed overall with the quaint location, dedicated staff, great leadership as well as the many programs in the performing arts they work to incorporate into the educational program. They have a program called, 'Art in the Community' and it's fun to go into a business and see the art from our school.

My children has been at allen now for 6 years. Over the years I have seen a big decline in the arts and music program. I understand there are budget cuts but a lot of what the kids learn , can be learned at home. The drama is good, the dancing is not very good, and the music is eh. Hopefully next year will be better.

Allen is a wonderful school that enhances my children's education with programs based in the Arts. The staff is dedicated to educating each student and seeing them succeed. I wouldn't want my children to attend any other 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.

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.
