Star View is by far the best elementary school anyone can ever go to! The staff is nice, the students turn oout great, and everybody there is very optomistic. It's such a graet school.

My children have attended Star View for the past 5 years. We have been very pleased with the teachers, staff and parental participation. Star View is a family school and therefore people tend to work together for the better of the children. The academic programs are continuously improved upon and the extra curricular activities that are offered continue to grow. We will be sad to graduate from Star View next year but know that the children have been prepared for what is next to come. Thank you Star View!

Star View has been a great school for my children. I love the envolvment the staff has with the children. The principal has always been there every time I needed her. Star View has worked very well with my childrens after school program at Good Shepherd. We love both schools very much!We have had nothing but a great experience at Star View.

Great school and great teachers. My daughter has been well taken care of, especially by the resource staff. She has moved up 2 grades in reading and writing and working on that growth in Speech and Language. Go there, especialy if your child needs Special Ed Resources!

I am a new parent in 2006 to the school, but have had first hand experience with them through Good Shepherd Pre School and have always thought they were an outstanding school. They were just awarded for their efforts as a California Distinguished School. The principal is very hands on witht he teachers, students and community.

My son does not appreciate the music art that Star View pushes for....and thus he is not happy having to take part in music and art. He is very much into sports, however, Star View does not emphasize sport atleast on in 1st grade. So far, the teachers are 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.
