My kids have had amazing teachers so far. The principal is so involved and really cares for the students. Buena Terra has a huge amount of parent volunteers. When we moved I chose to keep my kids at Buena Terra instead of moving them to the school labeled as the best in the district because of all the teachers and parents.

I agree with the previous review. Some front-office members did appear and sound rude from time to time. However, one member improved in attitude and professionalism, whereas the other still sounds vulgar. If it were not for the principal, teachers, assistants, etc., I would have given this school one star. Perhaps it is a cultural difference or differences in socioeconomic status. Some rudeness can be attributed to a lack of education and a lack of up-to-par upbringing in professionalism.

Buena Terra School is such a wonderful place. Each day the principal beings school with a group flag ceremony and announcements. There is a community feeling throughout the school and many parents are involved. I enjoy working in Kindergarten. The teachers always have projects for me to help with. My son is learning so much. Every week he advances in both reading and math. There are many fun activities such as father and son night and a talent show. Thank you Buena Terra!

Our family is new to Buena Terra elementary school this year. I am very pleased with the Kindergarten team who works with our daughter. They are very kind, energetic, and focused. My daughter and her classmates cheer when they see their teachers come out to greet them. There is a strong academic focus on learning to read and learning math concepts. She is reading, writing, and knows how to add and subtract already. We are so pleased we decided to choose Buena Terra for our daughter's Kindergarten placement. Thank you Mrs. S and Ms. N

All of my children have gone to this school. My last son Logan is special needs, the teachers at Buena Terra and the staff have welcomed Logan into a mainstream classroom at my suggestion and have made a huge difference in Logans life. Logan will now go on to Jr High with lifelong friends and school peers he might have not have even met. Logan continues to grow and excel wi8th amazing support from his school.

The new school year has brought a new principal as well as a new office staff. They are kind and welcoming. The school had a rough year in 2008-2009, but so far 2009-2010 has been much better.

I have to say i've been fortunate as far the good teachers that my son has had...He's been at buena terra since ist grade and now he's in fourth..Although i am not pleased with the office staff either they are very rude i never had a problem before i dont know if it's because everyone is overloaded with work due to the econmoy and lay offs but the ladies in the office are very rude

I am not happy with Buena Terra School any longer and I am looking to put my son in a new school. I am disappointed with the new office staff. The principle Ms. Pelly does not care about the students and the parents. It is very different there now that Ms. Bianco is not there. I can not believe that the new people in the office are allowed to treat people so badly. The teachers at this school are mostly good but there are a few that need to retire. I wish they would already.

We had shifted from India in september here and i was quite worried about my kids admission and how he will adjust in the new enviroment as there is a vast different in the method of teaching and everything was new for him beginning with friends, teachers and the school schedule. My child is only 4 months old in this school and i dont know the whole staff as yet but who ever i have met has been of great help to me and my kid, be it his class teacher ,the office staff or the principal.

What can I say...This school is the best! I love the teachers! The teachers really focus on the importance of Learning. They encourage the children to do thier absolute best...and find time to reward them for it! The Lines of communication are open between parent & teacher...and that is very important to me. The office staff is always very accomadating and understanding. They are always so busy ,but still have time and are eager to help everyone. The Principle is quick to address any issues, both positive and negative...She is Awesome! I am really dreading ever having to attend a different school because Buena Terra sets very High standards. I want everyone at Buena Terra to know that they are very appreciated and my children love going to school there. With Sincere gratitude and respect, Very Happy Buena Terra Parents!

Buena Terra is an excellent elementary school. The teachers & staff go above and beyond to help the students. Many stay after school to do tutoring free of charge on their own time! The office staff is wonderful and very helpful. The school also has an extremely active PTA that sponsors field trips for each grade, assemblies, parent & child events, and a carnival, just to name a few of the things they do. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. They keep the parents very informed, all they have to do is look in their kids backpacks to find flyers about anything going on at the school. To the parent who said they had to hire tutors, have you tried talking to the teachers? The 6th grade teachers are there several days a week after school with tutoring clubs.

This school is a wonderful, caring place for our children to learn. I have seen children come into the office and hug Mrs. Brede, Mrs. Gallagher and Mrs. Bianco before going to class. The staff is friendly, and they all go the extra mile for students and parents. Mrs. Bianco is always willing to talk to parents about any concerns they may have. The staff welcomes parents to come in and see them for any reason. The school and the community work together. There is always information going out to the parents about news and school activities. What I would of given to have gone to a school like this.

This school is a great school. They are clearly focussed on what really matters...students learning. They absolutely are friendly and welcome all children and community members into the school. The children are happy to go to this school because the teachers and principal go above and beyond to make them feel safe and secure. This is a fantastic school with a terrific staff. As for communication, there is constantly information going out to the homes through telephone calls, teacher notes, the school news and the marquee. I am not sure what more you could ask for in a school.


Posted September 4, 2007

I'm very disappointed with this school, they wait until the day before school start to post the classroom in which your child will be in, list of supplies will be given on the 1st day of school, staff not very friendly, I have not seen my kid improved in any of his subjects, I'm now paying lots of money to have my child tutor to prepare him for 7th grade. I wish the Principal would get more involve in what is going on in the classrooms. I sure miss my kid's previous school the teacher were so in tune and prepared I got a report every Friday on my kid,at BT there is no communication.

my son & daughter attended b.t k-6 and another daughter k-3 (we moved) b.t has given them top notch education with the help of the most fantastic teachers. their teachers went above and beyond. they were able to direct my children onto a path of high achievements. because of the strong foundation given to them, they have been incredibly prepared for junior high and now high school. I give thanks to Mrs. Bruce, Mr. Hackett, Mrs. Barcelona, Mrs. Itoh and Mrs. Halsted and anyone else that has touch, moved and inspired my kids at B.T

I would like to thank Ms Castor for all she has done for my grandson over the last 2 1/2 years. She is a very caring dedicated teacher. She takes the time to get to know the kids and works with everyone that needs to be involved to help the child. Buena Terra is lucky to have her and other teachers that have these great qualities.

I have been really impressed with Buena Terra. My son has attended there for 2 years and has excelled. Before coming to this school my son struggled. Even though he started in a private school from K-2 and then went to a school in an extremely high rated district for 3-4 grade. The other schools were good but failed to recognize the individual needs of the child. It seemed they were more concerned with the overall numbers. The teachers at Buena Terra care about the success of the individual child and set realistic goals for them so they can focus where the improvement is needed and not be overwhelmed. As I said, he has excelled. His reading and spelling grades went from C s and D s to A s and B s. And now he reads because he loves it. This school is wonderful, the staff is all welcoming and Dr. Clement is great. My daughter starts Kindergarten there next year and I know that she will get a better education there than the high priced private school we sent our son to. All I can say is Thanks to everyone there at Buena Terra. Your efforts truly make a difference in the lives of your students and their families.

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.
