Horrible.They are lying on the ratio and the ratings. I went on this before registering and really upset. Not sure if I can trust this sites ratings. My child hates it there so much she doesnt want to go to school. Really really low class.

This is the greatest school! I love the constant encouragement to be involved. Students have a voice and they are actually heard too! The previous principal Mr. Rhine was the greatest and I was sad to see him leave. I am happy to see that Mrs. Perez has stepped up to the level of quality that Mr. Rhine had established. The teachers that I have had the pleasure of knowing have a great deal of dedication to their students. I really think that they out did themselves when I found out about the schools before and after school program. I am a working single parent and my child has the opportunity to do his homework and if needed extra tutoring by a teacher. They have reward parties, sports, games, even free Karate lessons! All during the after school program. Overall this school is a total package of excellence! Thank you!

Academic achievement at this school is very high for most. Of course there are others who are not performing at the same standards as the majority, which overall drops the average. Very good school, very good teachers, great environment (park like school setting), single story classrooms with patios and open area, large play fields and trees. Reminds me of elementary school I went to as a kid in the country back in 1960's-70's Art and Music are taught and not just cosmetically, but seriously. They put on a school Christmas play with full scenery changes and sets, music and singing. Science and history are also well taught including activity days where they dress up in the era they are learning about and experience some of the lifestyles and foods.

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.
