This school is reallly great. I love all the activities the kids do there and all the love the kids have for each other. The onl thing I dont like is the principal and vice principal who took over the job as principals from the previous principal who had been there ever since the school started almost 11 years ago. The vice principal last year was a very nice and calm person. I just hope the kids get good teaching and have a lot of fun there.

First of all the GATE program is over rated and unnecessary. My kids did not benefit from this. There are some good teachers at Borchardt, but I was not impressed with the fifth grade teachers. Projects at this grade level are not explained well, and they are are crammed down their their throats back to back. When some projects are returned there is no explanation from the teacher explaining why they got the grade that they did ,or what they could improve upon for next time. Also, some teachers are being biased towards the children. They decide who gets detention, and other kids (particularly teacher's pets) will do the same wrong and get out of it all together. This is unacceptable and a teacher should get fired for this type of behavior. All children need to be treated on a level plane field, and they are not!

I love Borchardt. The teachers are great and are always available even during non work hours. My son transferred from SUSD and struggled to 'catch up' but with the help of the teachers and a lot of parent envolvemnt he not only caught up he received several awards. My son graduated from Borchardt tonight and I could not be any more proud of him and grateful to Borchardt.

Homework can be a lot at times, however, it is always meaningful and relevant. Teachers are readily available to answer questions or clarify assignments. In fact, many teachers give out their home and cell numbers so that students may call them!

I feel that the homework handed out on a nightly basis is excessive. I feel that the teachers do not explain the projects in enough detail.

Borchardt has the best teachers I have seen. I am thrilled with their curriculum and focus on the kids. Principal Moorehead is headstrong and although, looking past that, she has a lot of hands on with the children. The one thing I disagree with in the school, is that reporting (I call snitching) is encouraged and rewarded. This school needs to realize that the children can understand the difference of reporting important things rather than tatelling on everything. This not only makes too much work for the staff, it robs our children the opportunity of learning to work things out for themselves. All and all, I highly recommend Borchardt, but encourage parents to keep an open mind if and when their children have social problems.

My daughter has been attending school at Borchardt since the year started and she is doing great! She loves her teacher and the school. It is so close to our new home and it has a great safe environment to learn in! The schools positive attitude is great.

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.
