Are these reviews real. We removed our foster daughter and son within a few weeks. Slogans on office walls are all the things we wished happened for our students. No accountability at top. Higher level school districts could never get away with this. Written requests for testing ignored, bullying, used condoms on field! Even had our foster daughter working in office during star testing so her score wouldn't drag stats down. How can they function at this low level?

As an alumni of this school I think that it would strongly benefit from the principal making more decisions from teacher rather than a select few parents opinions

Costano Elementary is a great school where all adults on campus believe every child can learn and the students themselves believe it too striving for excellence is the norm not the unusual!
