All 3 kids have been in Weaver. We are so happy with the principal (Ms. Koninsky). She is so nice and she is the key of success. My son is in 2nd grade. He only remembered A-Z when he was coming to Weaver. Now he could not stop reading. He could finish a book while we are shopping at Costco. Thank you Weaver staffs, teachers and who else Mrs. Kominsky.

Weaver Elementary School is outstanding. Our son just started kindergarten with Mrs. Otani and absolutely loves her! We could not be happier with this school. The principal, staff and parents are fully committed to the students with an "all in all the time" focus on excellence. Weaver is a very welcoming place for all students and their families.

My daughter was new coming into Weaver !! She started in the fourth grade class. Coming from a private school I. Long Beach. We are extremely happy with our daughter's teacher Dr. Arias!! He has made us feel so welcomed, and my daughter is now challenged in school. But not over whelmed. Our principal is amazing too!! We are a very happy family.. Our daughter is Harvard bound.

Weaver Elementary School Rocks! Our son is in the first year of his educational journey in Kindergarten at Weaver. We could not be happier with his teacher, fellow class parents and the principal and support staff at the school. I have had the pleasure to interact with the school nurse, the principal and others who are readily available and genuinely interested in my son and his well being. We love the progressive environment at Weaver and the year around scheduling (although it is currently modified because of the construction). It makes us proud that our son attends one of the top rated schools in all of Orange County.

Weaver Elementary school has 700+ students in grades preK-5th. What makes this school special is that no students are assigned to it, rather everyone opts in to be there. It is leading the way in STEAM learning (adding A for arts) with regular iPad learning time. We have 3 kids at Weaver and would highly recommend it. The principal is a dynamic leader and there is a lot of parent involvement that helps the school do extraordinary things on a decreasing budget. Last years API scores were a 993 and every 2nd grader scored proficient or higher in math and language arts. Weaver is the place to be!

I have three children attending Weaver, and they love going to school! I have volunteered in their classrooms year after year, and am amazed to see the ever evolving curriculum that is implemented in this school. You can witness the teachers working collaboratively to create engaging lessons. They use various teaching strategies to tap into every students' learning modalities. At this school all children will learn. The results are shown in their API. If people think Weaver teaches to the test, this is furthest from the truth. Weaver teaches students to be explorers, critical thinkers, problem solvers, and be as creative as you can be. The teachers encourage and support their students to reach their highest potential. This is all in part due to the Weaver principal's vision for the school, that no child gets left behind. Weaver is a wonderful place to learn!

I currently have 2 students enrolled and both of my kids love going here. Their teachers have all been wonderful and each one of them has known how to grow their strengths and bring up their weaknesses. I know that there has been a lot of mention previously that they are very test score focus, yet I have never felt that way with either of my children. I do feel that they make the ordinary extraordinary. There are no tests to get into this school, the students are not hand picked for success so this must mean that there is real learning happening here. We love it and wouldn't send our kids anywhere else.

Fantastic school with amazing teachers! The principal is hands-on and knows each kid's name. Yes, it is challenging but so is life. This school teaches tenacity along with responsibility. My husband and I feel our son is essentially getting a private school education. We are delighted by our choice to go to this school

If we evaluate this school within the sphere of public schools, it is really really strong. Teachers don't seem very happy, though, and my gut is that the principal is pretty intense and hard-driving. Parents are demanding and hard-driving too and super involved which has its pros and cons. Some teachers can be downright mean and others are really great, a real mix. Like any public school, there are some really misbehaving kids that get spread around in different classes and can be very disruptive. Most parents don't live in the community but there still feels like a community. Curriculum is WAY too advanced for most average/normal kids (they teach at least a year ahead), but if your kid is gifted, this is the place to be challenged. It seems like they focus on testing too much versus the process of learning. If you and your family are intense, over achieving, competitive people, this is the place for you. If not, best to go elsewhere in the Los Al system.

I really love this school--it's probably one of the best public schools around. I'm particularly smitten with the curriculum and the visionary principal. The kids do their fair share of "normal" work, but they use CGI (cognitively guided instruction) for math, Jiji and STMath (computer learning that kids seem to really get and enjoy--not ST Math as much since it is just math facts), and all kinds of writing strategies. Some classes are used as experiment classes where teachers have more freedom to try new things. Like any public school or any school, however, teachers are pretty mixed. There's a few really bad ones and one in K left while the other in first grade is still there, but otherwise teachers shuffle a lot so your child might be unlucky one year, but might get lucky other years. Definitely a school for "bright" learners. Like any public school, even a choice school, they have really well behaved smart kids and some really poorly behaved kids. Very mixed ethnically too. Overall highly recommended, again, especially if your kid is advanced since they seem to really focus on math many grades ahead.

GREAT SCHOOL - the Principal and teachers make all the difference. Ms. Kominsky is key to their success and was recently awarded Principal of the Year. I live right by McGaugh but still drive to Weaver because of the year round schedule, awesome leadership/teachers, advanced curriculum/technology and amazing parents. I have one child who's been at Weaver 5 years and the only complaint would be one teacher who wasn't that great (she's gone now), but other than that, the experience has exceeded my expectations. Previous reviews stated the school isn't for everyone, but the workload has been fairly easy for my child (who can sometimes be an overachiever). My oldest went to another Los Al school and wasn't prepared for middle school, but my youngest definitely will be. In response to other reviews, there are educated white collar parents (like me) and many parents who aren't as educated, but everyone's primary goal is to help their kids succeed. This is what brings everyone together as a family. The Weaver parents are amazing and not cliquey. There's also a wonderful ethnic mix of kids from all backgrounds that you don't see as much at other Los Al elem schools. Go Weaver Whales!

A good school, but not for everybody. Yes, Weaver is a top school and has the test scores to prove it. However, there is more to your kids education than the almighty test score. My daughter is in first grade, and we are considering taking her out of Weaver. She is not just being taught first grade math curriculum, she is being taught second and third grade math (multiplication) in class and while it sounds great in theory, some kids are not developmentally ready for higher level math. This school is like a GATE school, lots of high achieving kids and majority of parents have college degrees and are white collar professionals. Nothing wrong with that, but it definetly sets the tone of the school. And if your child is struggling, Kominsky documents everything and has you sign papers acknowledging that your child is not at standard. I feel like they are trying to weed kids out who may not test high next year. I was very worried and had my daughter independently tested twice and she is right at grade level. But thats not good enough for Weaver standards. My advice: if your child is very bright/gifted, this school is a good fit. If you have a normal kid, go in with your eyes wide open

This is truly an amazing school, with an incredible staff and parents who are involved on an every-day basis & dedicated to carrying the load. My kid loves going to school & is so proud to be Weaver Whale! He's in Kindergarten, and is wild about his extracurricular Chess & Mad Science classes.

My older son graduated from this school in June and graduation was one of the most memorable days of our lives. I cannot imagine a better school to send our children to. Mrs Kominsky, Ms Peel, Mr Arias, Mr Nguyen recognized our kids potentials and worked very hard to maximize it further. The emphasis on overall development was never let go for the 6 yrs that my older son, and one year that my younger son attended at Weaver. The year round schedule, the super committed parents and the overall community in and around the school are outstanding features you will avail of at this school. Thank you Weaver!

My daughter just finished 5th grade at Weaver. We both teared up as the outstanding principal explained that the students would always be 'Weaver Whales'. I am a teacher and an admitted 'helicopter parent'. We felt supported and well-informed from grades K-5 with only a few minor bumps in the road. The hallways are swarming with motivated parents who find creative ways to fill the budget gaps. Weaver's academic, art and music program combined with the willingness of teachers to take on different methods of teaching makes it a great place to learn. My daughter had opportunities to grow and give back to the community as a Weaver Ambassador. The daycare (Kids Korner) is fabulous. Mrs. Tiffany, the site coordinator, is the most nuturing, motivated, helpful and creative daycare teacher I've ever encountered! My only regret is that it's not K-8. We will miss you WEAVER!

This school is amazing!!!! We tried our home school but my child was not wanting to go to school. Other kids in our neighborhood went to Weaver and they loved school. We started in the middle of the semester but everybody made us feel welcome. My daughter wants to go to school everyday. She is so happy and she is learning so much. She misses her teacher when we are on break. We feel so blessed to have found this really great school.

We love that it is a year round school. It gives us flexibility in planning trips. The campus itself is older but the faculty and test scores speak for themselves. My son loves going to Weaver. We really feel like the educators really care about their students. I can't compare it to other schools because it is the only one my child goes to, but we so far are genuinely impressed with the whole package.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
