Teachers, staff, parents, and the community are competent, energetic, and hopeful! It's one of the top scores ranking in the school district. We are proud to be part of the family!

Marshall Pomeroy is an amazing elementary school. My son has attended Pomeroy since kindergarten and I have watched him grow academically and personally. I know he is getting an great education when he tells me the amount of attention he gets from his teachers on a regular basis. He has grasped more understanding in literary and math concepts as a third grader, than I had ever imagine he would so early. As a parent, I am very pleased and grateful that my son attends Marshall Pomeroy Elementary School.

The teachers and staff at Marshall Pomeroy are top-notch. Their care for the students and their interest in providing the best education possible is evident. The school is moving forward with technology and embracing the Common Core Standards and the whole school population just seems completely energized and enthusiastic about the changes occurring. I believe that my children are getting a great academic education at this school. I'm a bit disappointed that there is not more liberal arts in the curriculum (music, art, etc), but that seems to be the status quo in this district, not just at this school. Communication between the administration and parents is excellent -- with a monthly newsletter, monthly Principal Chat, regular email blasts and an up-to-date web site. The PTA is also very active and parent volunteers are always welcome.

This school has traditionally had some of the highest scores and achievement in Milpitas Unified School District for an Elementary school. Demographics similar to Curtner Elementary and nearby Warm Springs area. Parents involved in their children's education and many come from cultures where education is highly valued. Multi-cultural student population reflective of SF Bay Area and particularly south bay. Teachers are excellent and care about their students and are engaged in district initiatives as well as migration to new common core standards. Although the school has seen several Principal changes over the last 7 years the API scores continue to rise. Milpitas Unified School District continues to improve its scores and continues to manage challenges and changes with solid leadership. Milpitas is probably best kept secret in the south bay for safe, middle class, small sized city with a good school system that is steadily improving.

Pomeroy has good teachers who care about their students. Our child looks forward every day to school. Opportunities for parent involvement are limited to field trips and PTA events.

School outside appearance looks old but the principal and teachers are pretty good. The best teachers I can name are Ms. Ramirez who teachers 1,2nd graders and Ms. Patner who teachers 4th grade. Science teacher Ms. Anand is also very innovative teacher. I have my both kids in that school and I recommend it .

School located in the scenic foothills. Nice campus. Teachers take personal interest in the learning progress and overall well being of kids. Consistently good API.

The discipline is good, however the classrooms should be bigger and school campus needs to be renovated. There is no room for the children's belongings. The jackets and lunch boxes are placed in bins outside the classroom. The school always requires a mandatory "donation" from the parents for field trips. Overall, it is ok. Some staff should be more approachable and less strict especially in the office.

This is a wonderful school we had seen. We moved from Oregon this year but my child adjusted so well even being in fourth grade. The teachers here are good and also the science here is taught with passion. My child is loving the school and so we are happy.

Marshall Pomeroy in Milpitas is an example of a school which realizes the importance of the point in history in which we find ourselves. Because of critical advances in communications, opportunities to revolutionize education are presented to us now which may become the most important transformation in education since the time of Socrates. Marshall Pomeroy is led by a staff who recognize the challenges and opportunities which are now before us. Pomeroy is rather unfortunately named however, for entering the name Pomeroy in this site defaults to Pomeroy Elementary in nearby Santa Clara. It is easy to miss. For that reason, it is very likely that some of the Great School entries for Marshall Pomeroy in Milpitas will result in grant drawing entries for Pomeroy in Santa Clara. This is our tough luck, but our good fortune of living in these transitional times more than compensates.

My daughters are now 2nd and fifth graders. All of my daughter teachers were/are very nice. Kids love them and enjoy their class everyday. I am very happy so far.

My daughter studied from Kinder Garden until 3rd standard before we moved out of the country. We really miss this school. The teachers were nice and my daughter had a good time there. When the kid wakes up and wants to go to school, then it is a good situation to be in. Hope to be back soon. Like other parents mentioned, the school needs a face-lift.

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.
