Two of my children attend this school. And I am a parent/teacher helper as often and frequent as I can. So being that I am there quite often, have seen first hand the love and compassion from not only my own kids teachers, but also from some of the other teachers also. I commend you all! Our children need that love and attention that these teachers give. The only two downfalls I see in this school is the lack and action of discipline. I understand that we live in a very negative world, and that the schools don't want to focus on negativity, but our children need to have the proper bounderies and guidlines and if they are broken need to know there will be and 'is' a consequence that will be followed through. If you give them an inch, they 'will' take a mile. They can be disciplined in love and know that it is for the action they did without damamging their self-esteem. I also feel that the staff who watch the children at recess and lunch are 'not' doing their job effectively.

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.
