Florence Elementary is the BEST! My daughter has improved in her reading, writing and math because of her teachers hard work. I also know that Mr. Salcedo goes into her class to help all of the kids do better.

The school has improved drastically since the new assigned principal. The new principal has brought a new spirit of achievement and confidence to the school (students and personnel).

We are very fortunate to have two new great administrators. Both, the Principal and Vice Prencipal have done alot since they started with us last year. I know that will take time to see the whole picture, but as early as one year we already see and feel the diference. Our School will be #1 in our area, I guarantee it!

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 Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
