I have a son who goes to Park School since kindergarden and the teachers are very caring about their students. My son loves to go to school.

I think that sometimes a little more personal involvement on the part of the parents and teachers would go a long way. I also would like to see a some pride in the way that the school looks(paint, landscaping,etc.).

The principal and many teachers are great. There is not much in the way of parent involvement.

My 8 yeal old daughter has been going to Park Elementary for about 4years now. This school has been very dissapointing because they do not have enough resources for children with learning disabilities. My daughter suffers from audiotory processing syndrome, which requires her to have special help with her learning. They are not up to date on a lot of things either. I wish they could offer more resource for children that are slow learners.

I have one child who just graduated from Park Elementary and went there for 6 years and I have a child who is in the first grade at Park. It is a great school with a great staff that really cares and is open to whatever a parent may have issues with. Of course there is no perfect school, but the important thing is that I never worried when I leave my children there because there is serious monitoring there and they are serious about educating our children.

About these ratings

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

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
