My children were enrolled in A.K when we lived in Fairfield, and I must say the review on this site had me unhappy that I had to put my K and 3rd grader here. But once I attended the parent meeting, I was pleased. Mr. K is a great principal, and is new to the school for the 11/12 yr. He is working hard to raise scores, and is working hard to involve parents. I was appointed a spot on one of the boards, but I moved. The reason A.K has such low scores is because there are a lot of non English speaking children that have a rough time learning the language, so it brings the scores down. Both of my children's teachers were great and I was sad we had to move. Once Mr. K gets a grip on getting more help for those Spanish only speaking children and more parents involved, A.K will rank so much higher! Good luck A.K! We miss you!

Didn't feel my children got the education they deserved at this school. English learners are left behind. Focus more on other languages at this school. I feel they took away from my children's education to accamodate non english speaking children. If english is not your first language this school has a lot to offer, with the different programs for non english speaking students and parents.

This school is so terrible academically and in other ways that I had to transfer my children out under the NCLB law. We were not able to work on changing school policies on curriculum or behavior. There is no real extracurricular activities programs set up. Academically the school is one of the worst.

This school is a very nice school. They really care about the kids. And always teach them the right stuff. The academic programs are also very nice. They have music, And P.E.

The administration does not seem to really care about the kids. They have very little activities for them, no type of reward system set up. They make the children walk through the parking lot to get to class because they say it is an inconvenience for them to open more than one of the four gates on school grounds. The parents do not help out with the kids at all. The children are very badly behaved on this campus due to a lack of enforcement by the principal and vice principal.

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.
