Loma Verde Elementary not only has a good learning enviornment but gives kids the love and comfort that sometimes is lacking at home do to a divorce or single parent working late hours, etc. I personally thank the Loma Verde Elementary School staff for all the support that is given to my grandchildren on daily basis. God Bless! : )

Has a parent it's been hard to schedule an appointment with the principal and there is a lack of communication with the teachers. There is also a lack of leadership and time management from the principle. When it come to bullying none of the staff cares about kids fighting. The principle doesn't have time and seems that doesn't care if kids are being bullied. I am not happy with the school I do not see my kids being in this school next year.

My daughter is currently in 2nd. with Ms. Martinez (the best teacher in the world!). Ms. Martinez' dedication, team work, and true love for her students make her an absoulute honor for us to have as a teacher. The school does has great academic challanges, including a high number of English Language Learners. People constantly complain about little problems here in there, but no one offers to volunteers, be part of the PTA, or address the problems with the principal. The principa is trying really hard to listen to all of us parents, te schoo is moving foward and i cannot ne more happy with staff, teachers, and principal. Maybe having more events for the kiddos would make it a better place for them to learn.

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.
