This school is wonderful! the learning environment is essentially the foundation of success as well as the quality of the teachers which sba knows all a bout..the school is in a great neighborhood and it is very clean. My two boys are in the 4th and 1st grade and they love it here.the only down side is they don't have transitional pre k classes which is inconvenient for my 3rd little fella who won't get to go to school with his big brothers.overall I'm highly satisfied with the educational drive shown by sba!

I have two children at this school and we are really happy with the program. Teachers are commited to excellence and go the extra mile to help their students succeed. The school is beautiful and the grounds are immaculate. There are many special programs and tutoring opportunities. The principal is visible and involved with parents and students. This is a fantastic school, it feels like a private school!

This school rocks. Let's start withthe principal -fabulous leader with vision and direction. The teachers are knowledgeable and work hard to help all children learn and succeed. The secretary is friendly and helpful. This school has lots of services and programs like reading intervention, after-school tutoring, small group assistance and daily English Language Development. Against all the challenges, SBA shines and should be reconized for its ability to educate all children. No wonder there is always a waiting list, it is worth it if you can get in here.

This school is a great public school. The facilities are up to date, the principal and teachers are great. My daughter is now in the third grade and her kindergarten - 2nd grade teachers continue their relationship with her. The speech and after school programs are lovingly cared for and managed. All in all, SBA has been a great school for the last four years and the test scores are improving!

My son goes to SBA and he loves it. His teacher pushes them to try harder and to give there best. He has learned so much, I thought he was not going to be able to capture so much knowledge. The teacher is very interactive with the parents and informative with the children's progress. I'll sending my daughter SBA next year also.

OK School. This school was previously only 5th and 6th grade. This school year (2004-2005) thay changed to k-5, with the closure of Colma Elementry. The downside to that is larger class sizes.

I think Susan B. Anthony school is the best school for your children because they have alot of great activities. Your child(ren) in 5th grade can go to Outdoor Education. They have great staff and teachers. I love my teacher because she pushes us to learn. My teacher has a pink slip and so does alot of teachers and staff at that school so help Susan B. Anthony by going to the board meetings at Fernado Rivera Middle School. My parents and I love Susan B. Anthony and that's why your child should go there.

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.
