I am currently a student here. Not a good school. The teaching isn't very good. The honors program is a joke and not very many good kids there a lot are on drugs. good music program though.

I moved out of Norco in 1982 after one year at Auburndale. The counselor at my new school in Northern California sent me to a psychologist after I described Auburndale to him. He thought I was lying because he didn't believe that any school could really be that bad. Judging by the "Great Schools" rating of 3 out of 10 I would suspect Auburndale has improved a bit. I'm not sure you would believe how much better a different school could be unless you had an experience like that.

The school is a good school for are kids to go to its the best!

Auburndale is the best kept secret in the Corona-Norco USD! We have the best staff and the best students at any school, and our test scores keep moving up by leaps and bounds every year!

I find this school to carry out the California Content Standards very high. The core curriculum is challenging and presented in an understandable and fair terms. School is for self discipline, education, and motivating a high self-esteem. This is what this school exemplifies.

The Teachers and Staff are awesome. I love the way they make themselves available to assist the students before and after school. I made each teacher aware I was a hands on parent and when my daughter went through her testing / trail stage I was receiving e-mails from the teahers. I love having the homework schuedle e-mailed to me weekly by the school. This allowed me to see what work she had to do but also get a sneek pre-view of what to expect in 8th grade.

Not a very good school. Many students attending have very little parental guidance making it a tough place to send good kids.

This is an absolute horrid school. The teaching staff is very good, but the administration undermines scholastic achievement.

I have a son in this school and he is enrolled in the honors classes. He doesn't have any trouble and says that it's not challenging although I have seen some improvements in the schools curriculum. The teachers are nice and friendly, but some don't help much on homework. There are some sports programs and a music program. I feel like I'm involved in my son's schoolwork, but there aren't as many awards assemblies and if there is one, the parents aren't notified.

I do not wish to review - I would only like to read other's comments. I can say this: If the staff/administration were held up to their student requirements/expectations, they would fail.

Posted September 5, 2003

Only a month into the next year and it's very apparent that this school is in need of a major reform. 40+ students in classes is absurd! So much for our children's education. Their honor courses are a joke - they use to make you test into all the courses and require a previous teachers signature, but now due to poor planning and overcrowding if you qualify for one class you are automatically in all honors. Where's the sense in that? The parents are active and concerned, but go unheard.

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.
