Regarding the previous message; I didn't realize there were 2 pairs of twin girls in the 1st grade during the 2013-2014 school year. I have twin girls who are also in separate classes. They are both on their way to the 2nd grade. The school is very supportive. The school and the community is very tight-knit, which creates a wonderful environment for the students. Chani

My twin girls are 6.5 years old and they are in 1st grade in two separate classrooms and they love coming to class and the teachers and staff here are very supportive and the school have all sorts of greats program to help our children get better and advance to the next level. Friday flags are they're favorite where children get an award by earning Wow slip cards from their classroom. They're programs help my children sharpen their rough edges. Thank you Chabot!! Let's go tigers!!

Chabot Elementary is not only an incredible school and learning vehicle for my children, but it is also an amazing community to grow in. The strong parent presence in the classrooms and across the many activities differentiate it from the other schools in Castro Valley.

Fabulous teachers! My son had Ms. Shergill with help from Ms. Emanuell for K - what a dynamic team. Add to that parents who are active participants in their child's education and you can't go wrong.

Chabot Elementary School is the best for many, many reasons. We have great students, great parental support and tons of involvement in fundraising efforts, Parent Club activities, and classroom assistance. Our children are well rounded and show a great amount of respect to the school, its students, and parents. Our fundraisers are always well attended and we raise lots of money for many different, valuable programs such as playground equipment, an outside learning garden, an intervention science teacher, lighting for our plays, and a new sound system. We have wonderful teachers who care about our children and truly enjoy their jobs. I love the comraderie of all the parents and our weekly Friday Flag 'schoolwide' assembly is enjoyed by all. Our children are recognized for their hard work and accomplishments. And we are the only elementary school in the area who has a spring play program for all the 4th and 5th graders so our children are enriched with a drama/theater experience. I am so proud to be a part of such an awesome school! Chabot Rocks!!!

We love Chabot Elementary. Go Tigers!

I love that Chabot opens up the minds of the kids that go there to all the possibilities in the world. They have a yearbook committee, student government, a musical, singing and band, etc. The children really get to experience many of their choices at such a young age.

This is our daughter's second year at Wilson and we are thrilled! The principle and teachers are so obviously invested in the success of the kids - and not just as students, but as 'people.' We truly feel like members of a community with a common cause - our kids.

We just moved to MA after attending Chabot for 6 years. We moved for several reasons and although the CA education system is facing subtantial financial issues with the budget etc. Chabot is definitely NOT one of the reasons we left. We will sorely miss the school, the staff and all our friends we met while being in, yes, the 'community' at Chabot. It takes many levels to make a school great and Chabot definitely has it figured out. No school is perfect, but they come pretty close!

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.
