I met my first best friend at this school i do not like the school systam but mrs. snider is a good kindergarden teacher


Posted September 13, 2011

The staff here does not seem to care if my grandchild learns or not, they blame the parent when the child does poorly. My grandchild has a learning disability so learning is harder for him than most of the other children in his class. The teachers and principle are rude. Also, on two occasions, when picking up my grandchild the school did not know of his whereabouts and we search the grounds and had to find him on are own. In my opinion, take your kid somewhere else.

The teachers,staff, and the children are so friendly/great! Little Lake Elementary is one of my favorite schools to visit and substitute teach in. I would love to teach here every school day!

Sadly, the new principal is not keeping school traditions. She is not friendly to parents or students the way the prior principal was.

LLE has a great amount of volunteers. Staff has been helpful in placing my child where she is academically as well as socially. The principal is wonderful! He really enjoys kids and it is not just a job for him. As well as academics I believe they are on track....We will see how testing results come back.

My daughter attended Little Lake for her 4th and 5th grade years. I was impressed by her teachers' dedication and the high quality of instruction she received. The school's PTA is an active, positive force at the school, and the school as a whole has a friendly milieu. The band program is unmatched in an elementary school and includes a large program for orchestral strings.

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.
