Ever since I put my child in this school he did not want to go to school . The leadership in this school is terrible and the teachers need to go back to school. It is a disgrace as a tax paying citizen I cannot find a descent public school for my children.

I have had 3 kids attend Hacienda Elementary. Every year they are trying new things to help the kids learn and the test scores keep going up. They have a positive and helpful staff.

I feel that this school is probably the best in the district. I look forward to seeing what they can do this year with my student. Teachers and staff seem to really enjoy what they do. We shall see what this year brings!

Hacienda Elementary hopefully will have better guidance in the fall of 2011 for the benefit of the students. Overall grade requirements are not academically challenging compared to Los Angeles county school district. Get that, below L.A. County public schools! Teachers do not assign enough weekly homework or parental interaction.

No consistency with discipline at this school nor teacher support. Sweeping a sidewalk at recess is more fun than going to class. Don't you think? Children receive in school suspensions in another classroom instead of going home half the time. More frustration for other teachers. Principal shows favoritism towards other teachers. Witnessed by all. Hopefully, new principal in the fall will make a positive change. Moral needs to change as well. A lot of backstabbing at this school.

Principal lacks discipline. School is new, clean and welcoming. Office staff is great. Teachers seem to be supportive and involved. However, students need more consistency in consequences.

I found the teacher to be very helpful with all areas of my child's learning needs. It has a safe enviroment from outsiders and they have enforced rules to help with order.

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.
