My children has had a wonderful educational experience at Ardenwood as well have I. The teachers are receptive and knowledgable and the staff is understanding and helpful. My children understand that both I and thier teachers have high expections of them. Ardenwood children receive non-academic enriching activities such as music, sports, festivals and carnivals. They do not know have priviledged they are, but I do and I applaud the Ardenwood Elementary Village for helping me to raise my children.

Great school! My daughter was in 4th grade when we moved here 4 years ago. At first she was very resistant about moving to another school, but soon found out that she loves this new school much better than the old one. Her reasons-- she has more friends with the same intellectual level, and the school has more short breaks that gives her energy. Most teachers are good. The most important thing is the environment. Families help each other in many ways. From volunteering in classrooms to help out in the math clubs; from driving to field trips to forming carpooling groups when the kids go to junior high... I am touched by the inter-racial cooperation in this school. It's a warm place to be, and to remember, both for me and my two kids.

Other people should know a million terrible things about this school. For one, their school is disgusting, as a previous student, I will tell you the truth. 1. I have literally seen teachers shouting at students over spilled milk 2. SOME of the yard duties allow misbehavior 3. Teachers only care about the money 4.Their P.E situation is impossible, who can stand that teacher! -------------------------------------------- I would like some changes in this school.... . Teachers are tested that they are not raciest . Teachers don't smoke on campus, or stop anyone who does . No high heels allowed at the school ------------------------------------

I would call this school, very bad. I went here for 2 1/2 years. The first teacher was very mean, and insulting. The second teacher was very nice. The third, was a nightmare. All the 'smart" kids (3.5 GPA or higher) got no homework and all regular kids were treated good. When a kid would be absent, she would talk behind their backs. All the kids parents are very competitive. So they will all go to the class to help out and suddenly when the kid who's grades were like 1.0 would go up to 4.0. But I will say one thing about this school, their after school band is extremely wonderful. Overall, this school is very competitive.

I don't know why people ask about foreign languages in this school. If you want your kids to speak or write foreign languages, teach them yourself. My kids love the school, they like to go to school, they like their friends, the students there and their teachers. What else do you expect from a school? Yes, we have to spend time to tutor them on their homework and pay attention on how they behave in school per teachers feed back (and they do). Parents who complain about this school, just move your kids somewhere else, life is easy, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and take your kids with you.

I just called the school this morning and was answered by one of the operator/staff. When I asked her about if computer classes were offered, she said curtly, "uh, No". I asked if the school offers language classes ie Spanish or Mandarin. She said again curtly, "no, this is an elementary school". I told her there are elementary schools within the district which teach foreign languages (Vallejo Mills, Arzeveda has a mandarin immersion program, schools in the Mission district of Fremont offer foreign languages. When I mentioned that elementary schools can offer foreign languages, she barked back, "only a couple". I was impressed by the high api score at this school, but turned off by that female staff's defensive and rude responses and tone. All she had to say was "no we do not offer computer/technology classes", "no we don't offer foreign language classes" and that would have been okay. Her tone was defensive and cold.

Great School. My son used to go to challenger. It was a challenge to both parents and the kids to keep up to their high standards. I don't know whether kids need to know so much at such an early age. (Kindergarten they teach digraphs and i studied it when i was in 4th grade in public school). I am happy with what he is learning at Ardenwood

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.
