The teachers at this school are excellent. The overall morale of the students is low, as they are not permitted to do as much as other schools in our district. I assume the administration doesn't want to be bothered with having fun! There is no dodge ball, there was no marble month there wasn't even Pathfinders camping for the fifth graders this year! Pretty much anything that is fun is taken away from the students. If your looking for great teachers, this is your school. There are some fun PTA sponsored events such as movie night, assemblies and carnivals. The office staff is unfriendly with the exception of the nurse. The yard supervisors and maintenance men are also very good with the students. The assistant principal is new this year and seems very friendly and seems like he wants the kids to have fun.

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.
