Both of our boys attendedSonora & are now succeeding in middle/high school. Many Sonora graduates go on to be campus leaders in high school. My boys got an excellent foundation to build on. They were always placed with classes or groups to challenge them and help them develop to their ability. Because music and the arts are a priority at Sonora, they experienced a well rounded education. Finally, the parent involvement is huge and makes a difference. Whether through PTA, Dads Club, or just supportive parents & grandparents, Sonora families know how much the help and involvement makes a difference. Sonora students are College bound!

My child did not get the individual attention he required. It seemed that the teacher just wanted him to fail.

So if you are into fund raising this school is for you... My daughters teacher was Ok. However as a parent I was not really kept informed as to what was happening at the school so much t the point that i had no idea they had picture day until the pictures came home.. I was lucky i did my daughters hair that day.. She is in Kinder so you would think you would not leave important information in the hands of 5 and 6 year old children, but they do. The Principal great on the other hand bent over back wards to help my family out too bad she was no the teacher.

Sonora is filling with caring people who truly love their students. The environment is warm and friendly. Each member of the staff works hard to get to know each student not only for academic purposes, but also have a positive impact on their future.

I am grandmother of a new student, a kindergartner, at Sonora Elementary School in Costa Mesa, Ca. My grandson, Ethan, loves his first year of school. His teacher is nice and has good learning activities for him. His classroom and school has a friendly, student centered envirenment. We are grateful our kindergarter loves going to school each day. Our son and daughter-in-law tell us that Sonora Elementary is proving to be a great school for Ethan. Thank you Sonora Elementary!

This school is one of the best in the District by far. We have consistently increased test scores over the years, while not compromising a whole education for our children. We are an Arts Connect grant school; science & technology is a priority; and we have a very active parent group. We love Sonora.

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.

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.
