I belive this school is good, but is not as good as every students expects it to be.For instance AVID, gives too many cornells for students,and does not give them any time to work on other work, also some of the teachers are unfair to their students.
—Submitted by a student


Posted July 7, 2005

I believe this is one of the best sachools in the distric. The vice principal is not only caring to the students, But involved, and gives proper punishment when needed. Most teachers will help the students, when they need more help, they have the choice of going to intervention, but sometimes it is manditory. They have plenty of programs, for the athletic student. They have dozens of after school sports year around. The p.e department is the greatist.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
