I have had nothing but problems since we transferred here. Bad communication from teacher, staff, and principal. There are a lot of bullying. My children have endeared physical and emotionally and staff is afraid to discuss anything. Very frustrating. The worst school year ever. For the district, the school curiculum is good. My kids, I believe are where they need to be. Average. Need more programs to excell and help students excell.

My first year and we hated! Not ones did my child attend a computer lab or a music class. The Library did not have the first graders take A.R. Test, I dont even know if this school provides them. My childs class ran out of paper at least 3 times so no homework packets were available. Just horrible!

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.
