Both of our children attend San Marino. It is a school with no perks. Our PTA leaves much to be desired. The school lacks family participation. Pretty boring school. My cheif complaint would have to be the lack of any cross guards during drop off and pick up hours. It is very dangerous when you are walking near the school parking lot. We have almost been hit on three different occasions. They are finally putting up cones but that is it. I guess a child has to get injured before our school sees it fit to do more. So sad.

I am a former student, I graduated 6th grade in 1996, and I have to say that I absolutely loved the school. The principal was amazing, and so were the majority of teachers. I am writing a review because I have a child now and would love to send him to this school, However... I do wish that Mrs. Singleton not be his teacher. She was very Authoritarian... and (at least for myself and my classmates) displayed warmth dimension dissatisfaction. She gave me low grades because my writing was "too small" or thought my mother did my homework. She made me dislike school, all I have to say is thank god for Walker Middle School teachers (Mr. Zahn specifically) for re-instilling my love for learning. Also Mr. Adair at Kennedy

I am a daycare provider and have noticed that my students who attend San Marino have very high test scores. Excellent school and the teachers are great!

My daughter has been going here since 1st grade(she is now in 5th) and I am not very happy with some of the teachers. Her fifth grade teacher was the most rude, patronizing, and plain meanest teacher I have ever encountered. So much so that I had to have Mr. Helms change her out to another teacher and report her to the superintendant. This woman humilated and ridiculed my daughter to the point of tears, and this incredibly, was in front of me. Imagine how she treated her when I wasnt there. Then she had the nerve to complain that my daughter didnt say thank you when she complimented her one time. Also the school staff does not seem very organized, cancelling events at the last minute, telling parents about events at the last minute, etc. They dont seem to realize that some people need more than a few days time to get time off from work, etc. No, overall I am unhappy with this school although the front office staff is very nice.

I am a father who's child goes to kindergarten in this school. I am dissatisfied and frustrated with his teacher and leadership in this school. They do not seem to deal well with divorced parents. communication with me as a parent is non existant, I have to continuously asked for his homework assignments and any paperwork from the teacher and front office. Even after sitting down with the principal who made promises that were not kept. The teacher is cold and aloof to me even after I spoke to him about my divorced situation and my wilingness to volunteer and become more involved in my son's education. I have custody of my son half the time but this school treats me like a weekend father who has no rights to his son.

This is the last year my oldest child will be here at San Marino. My son is in 5th grade and my youngest daughter now in 2nd grade. I have to say that I love this school. Mr. Helms has always taken pride in his school and his kids. He works with parents to try and do the best for all involved. I will be sad to see my oldest go off to Jr. High next year but I can say that I am happy that she has gone here. All of my kids test scores have risen and I feel that San Marino has given them a competitive edge on their education. Continue the great work San Marino.

My child had Mrs. Singleton for third grade this year and I cannot believe how far she has come in her writing and her math. This school has very caring teachers and a wonderful curriculum. The staff is terrific!

My child loves this school and his teacher! I was hesitant to send him to this school at first, but am glad that I did! You can tell the teachers and staff truly care for the students.

My daughter has attended San Marino since Kindergarten and I would recommend this school to anyone in the area. The teachers are great, Both Mr. Cole and Mr. Helms are absolutely wonderful and are so interested in the kids and their education. In fact I will not move until she goes into Junior High just because I want her to finish her Grade school years here. She is a straight A student and I belive that has to do not only with her love for school but also the wonderful teachers and environment San Marino has to offer. I will never forget the experience she and I have both have being involved with this wonderful school.

My son started kindergarten last year with Mrs Martin as his teacher (she was great). He now has Mrs Councilman in first grade I am sure it will be just as great of an experience. So far San Marino has been a really good school for my son and I am very happy with it. I went to San Marino as a child, And now as a parent I am glad my son can have the San Marino experience. Keep up the good work Mr. Helms. T. Malvas

I love this school, my daughter started at San Marino in Kindergarten and she is going into the 4th grade and we cannot wait to see what teacher she has this year. Every teacher she has had thus far has been excellent. They are all on top of their game, if there is ever a problem and something needs to be addressed they do not hesitate to inform you. We have been through two principals, Mr. Cole and now Mr. Helms and they were/are the best... very involved with the kids on a day-to-day basis, not just men behind a desk. We love this school, it is the main reason we are still living in Buena Park, even though we have considered a move, we do not want to leave San Marino. It is a wonderful school and I would highly recommend it to any parent.

The teachers and principal are very committed and focused. The school is very positive and the overall atmosphere is encouraging to the students. Communication with parents could be more effective and timely.

San Marino is a great school! My daughter is graduating from Cypress College with an AA at 17 and we thank the fine teachers at San Marino Elementary for giving her a great foundation. My two younger daughters, two nephews, and a niece also attend San Marino. All went to Mrs. Strohl for kindergarten and were reading very quickly. Our middle daughter is not the straight A student her sister is but receives the kind of emotional support that we really appreciate and her grades consistantly improve. The district founded a music foundation to help finance their music programs. Last year's carnival was a great success. I recommend San Marino and neighboring Holder Elementary to anyone moving to the Cypress/Buena Park area.

My son attended San Marino from the 5th to the 6th grade. Mr Cole was the principal, my sons teachers were Mrs. Booke and Miss Schaffer. San Marino is an excellent school. I think parent involvement could have been better. My son always had homework. He enjoyed attending San Marino, the schools carriculum was excellent. Mr. Cole was very involved. He was very excellent. If I needed to speak with Mr. Cole about anything he was available. Miss. Schaffer my sons 6th grade teacher was very on hands also. She was always available to discuss any concerns I had in regards to my son. Mrs. Booke was my son's 5th grade teacher and she made his transition from another school a pleasant one.

I have 2 children here at this school. I have found this to be a very good school. Parental involvment is a must. The teachers are on top of any problems or good things that happen. Mr. Cole is an excellent principal and the faculty are just wonderful. They also offer special education classes in case your child is in need of help. Academic problems are spotted quickly and are addressed.

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.
