Paularino is a Need Improvement school for many reasons. My child's 1st report card-child is below grade level. 2nd report-child is far below grade level. The principal wrote meeting reading goals is Expected, without improvement child will be held back. My child did worst? After 1st report we were concerned & placed our child in Project Success. I was told they will help with homework & improve on reading. My child comes home with incomplete work & some are wrong. My child says there is no reading involved & when I pick up my child, it's like a sloppy day care. I help my child correct the errors & finish the incomplete work. We read 30 min, 5-6 days a week & I'm not a teacher & that doesn't leave us with much family time. My child tells me school is boring & the teachers are not nice. They should ask themselves, Why are the students failing? What are we (the teachers) doing? What can we do to improve? How can we help these kids? You cannot just Expect a child to just do better. You are the educator. These children are in your hands to learn when they are at school. Stop blaming the kids when your school Needs to Improve on the way they educate these kids in the 21st century.

My son is in Kindergarten & not to happy. Academically, my son brings home classwork that are halfway done & mainly with colored pictures of every classmates every week, very strange. As far as the review regarding the pick-up. I must agree that it is very unorganized. Parents including strangers stand all around the lawn while teachers are in the driveway. The teacher would walk the children to the lawn & head off to the driveway. The children stand or sit at the lawn with no adult supervision. So I always show up extra early but it does scare me that there are lots of strangers standing around the lawn. we will be moving next year so I will transferring my son out of here.

My daughter currently attends Kindergarten here and I could not be more pleased. Contrary to the other reviews they do not ever leave the kids unattended and none of them are allowed to walk home. When the kids are let out of school they all go to the lawn they are not allowed to leave until they are either escorted to the car, or the parent is at the lawn and they have said goodbye to thier teacher. The new principal is doing an excellent job at turning around the school and getting it out of PI status. To all the negative parents on here just remeber that a teacher can only take a child so far it is up to the parent to take thier child the extra mile. My child is excelling beyond my wildest dreams thanks to everyones involment with her from the teacher to the principal, staff and most importantly her family.

I had to transfer my son immediately out of this Program Improvement School. My son started kindergarten this year & wasn't learning anything from the school. His classwork was never check & was sent home mostly incomplete or blank. There are no homework assignments & books either. The communication level between parents & teacher is not open & straight forward. My son was constantly injured at school, on a weekly basis, either hit in the head or bruised and severely injured. When I pick him up after school, he was always left unattended by his teacher and/or staff. There are no safety precautions here as the kindergarten children are always left unattended on the school front lawn & just about anyone can pick-up the children. My son's experience at this school was horrific. Since transferring him to a non PI school, he's doing great & loves his new teacher & school.

My son has not learned much at Paularino that I have to spend extra time teaching him so he feels he is average to kids his age that don't go to Paularino. One of his teachers even suggested that my son needs a psychiatrist because he is too active. He is not too active, he's just an average kid. They even allowed him to walk home alone when he is not allowed too, he was only 6 years old at the time. My nephew had to transfer to a new school because his teacher was very mean and had no patience for him. He is mildly autistic. I don't recommend Paularino. I want to transfer my son to a new school but he doesn't want to lose his friends so I am still working on that.

Paularino Elementary has offered such an amazing first year in school for our Kindergartner. We love the school, its wonderful teachers and staff and all the dedicated volunteers and parents.

Paularino is an outstanding school and I would recommend it to any K-3rd grade student. The Principal is 3 years new and has created an atmosphere for students, parents and staff that is warm and makes you feel very welcome and part of a great community.

I was very happy with my son's kindergarten experience at Paularino. It's a relatively small school that goes from K-3 and I felt that the school staff was very accessible and aware of each student. His teachers (he had two: they shared a contract) were marvelous. They gave me periodic informal feedback about his progress and made suggestions as to how I could help him improve in areas that were a challenge to him. The classroom environment they creted was warm and inviting and accepting. The students were treated fairly and behavioral expectations were reasonable and consistent. Overall, the school community at Paularino was friendly. I got to know just about everyone from the principal to the janitor and felt that the school was run competently and with genuine concern for the needs of all students. Music, computers, library, all good.

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.
