My son was in the GATE program from 3rd to 6th grade. I highly recommend this school if your child is GATE identified. The GATE teachers are highly qualified (except for one 4th grade teacher that rumor has it will be retiring); thus, they have their curriculum down to an art. The needs of the gifted are unique so there are numerous projects & opportunities for the students to "work outside the box," whether it is in groups or cross grade levels. My son thrived here. He had no problems with safety, bullies etc. Band came in first place two years in a row with an on site, outside vendor (Music Matters.) Overall, great school.

We loved our daughters Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Stuart. We had a bad experience with here First grade teacher Mrs. Anderson. I had heard that she was a mean teacher from other parents but I left her in that class hoping it would be fine. We had a few issues. I think half of them could have been avoided if she had more patience with the students. We had to move and she has a new teacher. We have had NO issues with the new teacher. Academically the school is amazing. I felt my daughter learned a lot. Most of the teachers are amazing. I only heard good things and experiences from other parents I talked to. I would recommend this school to anyone. I would just say to avoid certain teachers if you can.

I graduated from K I Jones about 3 years ago and I loved the school. I had friends to hang out with and great teachers I could always approach. The neighborhood I always though as safe, and I don't think that has changed. The activities the students can do are great, like the walkathon (I think they still have that) and the raffles and all. The parent teacher nights were always great because you can go see your old teachers and talk to your current one about your grade and how they think you have been doing in class. The parents also really benefit from it. Just make sure you catch the teachers before it ends otherwise they will be gone if you try to catch them even a minute after it all ends. Some teachers stay there for a little longer and pack up or talk to other parents, but some do leave right away. As a whole, I love the school. I recommend the school to anyone who's looking into the gate program or the regular program they have. Ps. The library was one place I always loved, and if you go there, please (!) participate in the penny drives and heather house drives if they still do those types if things.

I see totally dedicated teachers, office staff, and classified employees that work their tail ends off to meet all of the frequently changing requirements from the state and district. We keep juggling state test demands with meeting individual learning requirements for students. Many personnel are at work 45-60 hours a week---usually without overtime pay ( not to mention the hours at home).

K.I Jones is absolutely awesome! I have moved to this school for GATE in 5th grade (I was in GATE ever since 3rd but my old school did teach anything differently for non gates to gates) and I am so glad I did! The teachers are hilarious but also on task. I sure have learned a lot more here then my old school!


Posted May 8, 2013

Crowded classrooms, overworked teachers, they put lots of emphasis on standardized test performance and not real learning.

My wife and I sent two children through this school over a period of 13 years. Both of us volunteered at many school activities and enjoyed many happy hours volunteering in the classroom. While there are always bumps in the road, overall we were consistently impressed with the dedication and quality of the teachers as well as the staff. The school also enjoys a nice location next to a park, deep in a quiet residential area that allows many of the children to walk to school. In short, we loved K.I.

I am an alumni of K.I. from 2002-2010. I attended for all seven years the last four of which were spent in the GATE program. If your student has been offered to test for this program please consider it. I found that the GATE program was one of the most important building blocks in my education aside from high school. All of the teachers are very friendly and willing to spend one on one time with students when necessary. I often visit some of my old teachers because I of the admiration that I have for them. I <3 KI and would go back today if I could!

I love this school because the teachers and staff truly care about the students there. Parent involvement is absolutely wonderful.

My daughter really enjoys the GATE program. although I'm often surprised by the sheer volume of homework she is responsible for every night. I agree that the kindergarten program is way too crowded and rigid... but seems to be a nice school for the upper grades and a great GATE program.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 20, 2009

Lots of parent involvement, and lots of really smart & good kids... but the kindergarten program here is incredibly inflexible, and some teachers seem more interested in crowd control than actually teaching. I work in the classroom and watch the teacher go step by step through each worksheet (of which there are way too many) allowing no time for the kids to figure things out for themselves. The principal is nice & friendly, but often seems too busy for us. This school is full of excuses, from budgets to class sizes. It's painful to go to a school that acts like being 'public' is an excuse for inadequacy. Don't be fooled by the test scores -- they are higher because its a GATE magnet and its in an upper-middle class neighborhood.

My husband and I are so sad to be leaving this great school. This school cares so much about your child. We have nothing bad to say about this school. Every staff member has always made us feel so welcome when we are on campus. Parents are always volunteering and staff can't thank them enough. It makes you feel good when you volunteer at this school you feel like your part of the staff...The only reason we are leaving is Moving out of town..We will Miss this school Staff and Students and all the parent volunteers.

My daughter transferred to K.I. Jones in 3rd grade to participate in the GATE magnet program. In general, we have been pleased with the program. I appreciate that our district is far-thinking enough to have this type of differentiated education to meet the varied needs of students thoughout the district. I would like to see K.I. Jones offer more extracurricular activities (sports, art, etc.) and the campus itself is pretty shabby. The office staff is great and always willing to help. Another really strong area at K.I. Jones is the PTA--what a great group of parents!

I have 2 students at K I...Wonderful teachers, dedicated principal, outstanding office staff, efficient and involved PTA. Only negative is the structure could be updated/improved, but you can't expect that any time soon with the CA budget crisis.

I am a parent. We've enjoyed the year at KI and are sorry to be moving. We did bring a more diverse student body to KI. The only downfall at KI is no diversity in teachers. Overall I'd give the school an 8 out of 10.

Posted October 30, 2006

KI was a good school. I think the loss of the Dual Immersion program is a great loss to this school. It created some much needed diversity in the school. Dual Immersion teachers are top notch. Overall feeling from the school is they did not embrace the uniqueness of having a program such as Dual Immersion.

K.I. is one of two GATE magnet schools in the district. 6th GATE was awesome for my daughter. Older school in older area, yet worth it. Limited bussing is available from many areas, but info hard to get.

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.
