Although the teachers are good, they have lost perspective of what a child on grade level should be able to accomplish. Students are bullied constantly. Lots of remedial help but not enough emphasis on science and social studies because there are too many students who are below grade level. Not a school for the advanced student to attend.

My two boys have attended David Weir over the past 5 years & have been very happy. They have had amazing teachers who care about all of the students and do everything it takes to appropriately challenge each student. I have seen them intervene and assist struggling students to help them grow by leaps and bounds while challenging the brightest students to continue to grow. I have never seen harder working teachers! The school's College Ready focus is amazing. It adds excitement throughout the school while setting a greater purpose for the students rather than just focusing on the current & next grade. I have been very pleased with DAW!

I attended this school back in the 70's when my dad was stationed in the area as part of his military service. This school was the arm pit of the public school system back then and the single worst school I ever attended. This school is single handedly responsible for my total disdain of the public school system.

My daughter has attended this school for 2 years. I see a lot of fights and she has been picked on a couple of times. However the teachers at the school seem fine.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
