Lorenzo Manor is a great school with a strong community base. The school works hard to build relationships with children and families. This is evident in their regular practice of building peaceful playgrounds, incorporating music into the curriculum, and hands on learning.

My daughter started Lorenzo Manor in the 2nd grade in 2008 and was in the mulit-age class. My daughter was always the "hard to teach" child. She was at a kindergarten reading level and nothing kept her interest for long. When she started Lorenzo Manor it was the patients of Mr Mitchel, Mrs Davis and Miss Laura that really helped her grow and prepare for 3rd grade. The multi-age program is so special, it turned my daughter whole out look on school and learning! Thank you all at LM for making learning a fun again!

My children are both a part of the multiage program at Lorenzo manor. I am proud to say that Mrs. Davis, Ms. Melvin, and Mr. Mitchell are dedicated teachers that not only focus on academics, but the whole child. they incorporate family, gardening, and community into their lessons. They emphasis being a good civic minded person at an early age. I am very lucky to have found a K-2nd program that meets the needs of my family. THANKS Lorenzo Manor, THANKS Mrs. Davis, Mr. Mitchell, and Ms. Melvin Tamarra Barrett

This is my son's 3rd year at Lorenzo Manor. The staff all care about the kids. They work real hard at teaching the kids what they need to know and do it with such excellent communication skills and patience. They love what they do for a living and it shows.

Lorenzo Manor offers an excellent and valuable program that is like none other in the school district. This valuable program teaches respect, commitment to one another and a caring environment. It is called the Multi-Age Classroom Program. The classes are from kindergarten to second grade levels. The teachers are focused and dedicated to this wonderful and caring environment for 'their' children from 5 years old to 7 years old. My daughter is in the Multi-Age Kindergarten class and we have made a commitment to be involved in this wonderful program. Although majority of the hispanic children attending Lorenzo Manor have not participated in a Pre-Kindergarten classroom setting for basic structure, and test scores are affected by it, Lorenzo Manor teachers are committed and dedicated to achievement. It is full of hope and parents must be as dedicated as the teachers.

My grandson is in 2nd. grade Mrs.Stiencamp teacher. Seems to be a very good school and the teachers do a great job with the kids considering it's about 60% hispanic now ,the kids all seem to get along real well which is good.My grandson does very good in class except he is a talker and teacher and I are working on that. Mrs.Stiencamp takes a great intrest in the students and works great with them and lets me know when my grandson needs to be disciplines in certain areas. Sincerely, Stan Sloan.

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.
