The school is really active with getting involved with the children not only their academics but their over all growth. Staff and teachers are friendly and very helpful. We came to Lodi not knowing anyone and my daughter had no friends. The staff was very patient with her and set up a buddy system so she could meet new friends and smile again..

The parent involvement, the teachers, the organization.

Posted September 20, 2009

To start, I couldn't say one Larson teacher or staff member is better than the other because they are all amazing. They have worked so hard to make it a Distinguished School. As for the parents, they work as equally hard to provide our students with fun activities and rewards throughout the year. They too are amazing.

Moving from Utah to California with young children I was very nervous about the school system. But did I luck out! Larson has been a wonderful school that focuses on success of children and bringing families together. I can truly say that we are Larson Stars!

Larson School staff, parents and supporters work tirelessly to ensure not only the academic success of their students but their overall growth. The school provides activities that embrace cultural backgrounds and differences and that foster a spirit of community and cohesiveness. I love that my daughter is surrounded by such positive energy every day at school.

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.
