I was very impressed with the programs and fast paced learning. The teachers are very involved and take the time to work with each child and their parents. Given the choices of both private and public schools in the area, I am very happy with our choice to send our child here.

I have two children attending Stone Lake School. Stone Lake has the best teachers and a great principal. They are very involve and very caring to the children. The academics are very challenging.

I love Stone Lake! The academics far exceed what I remember doing at my daughter's ages. They excel in school which plays a big part on their wonderful teachers. I haved loved all of them for their warmth, knowledge and their teachings of responsibility. My girls enjoy school and their peers have been enjoyable. I can't wait for my third daughter to start!!

This is an alright elementary school. My daughter has been there since kindergarten and is in sixth grade- the principal is nice but the vice principal is not too great. My daughter says she isn't the nicest or most comforting she's had. They are very strict- but she loves her teacher.

Stonelake has been an absolute joy for my children. I have three daughters who enjoy and look forward to going to school everyday. The teachers are great. The academics are appropriately challenging. Parent participation is wonderful. There are plenty of extracurricular activities.

My daughter started Kindergarten in Mrs Tam's afternoon class. She has learned so much over the year and has a real attatchment to some of the staff, especially Mrs. Johnson, the Principal. The level of eduacation is great and she has fun while she learns.

1.Academic Program is good 2.Music,Art,Sports,ExtraCurr. etc acceptable 3.Parental involvement good 4.Incase one student bullies the other, most likely both will face action. Not necessarily the wrong one.

So far quality of academics has been excellent! My experience with A track teachers has been great. They take extra effort in working with the students to master the core subjects. There has also been plenty of exposure to art, music, science and other extracurricular activities in the classroom . They really know how to motivate the kids to learn. Our experience has been a positive one. I would recommend this school to others.

Stone Lake has been a very potive experience for my son. The staff is very supportive and in 5 years I have never heard of any problems in school. They reward the kids constantly.

Adademic programs follow a consistent upward progression from Kindergarden through 6th grade. Students are held to high expectations.

Good school keeps up with other schools in area. too much turn-over in administration. Several new teachers were rebalanced from other schools and perhaps not the best suited for the positions.

Principal leadership is inconsistent. Three Principals in 4 years. If you are fortunate enough to have Linda Trujillo as a first grade teacher be forever greatful. Wonderful educator.

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.
