I remember when I was here. I felt truly supported by all teacher even if I wasn't in their class. I miss my memories here.

My kids went to this school and it is the greatest. Parents are treated like part of the 'family'. I miss seeing the staff and students.

Hands down, Randall has the most devoted and loving teachers. They don't treat it as just a job. It's their life and the kids know it.

Robert Randall has one of the best staff's of Teachers, administrators and parents working together to teach the kids. Working to overcome low income, English Language issues. I like Robert Randall because they have what it takes to motivate the students to want to learn, to show the parents how they can help and work together for the common good of the students. Its a cool School!


Posted October 8, 2009

I love Randall because they really emphasize learning and new ways to do so. This school keeps the parents and guardians involved every step of the way. Also, I attended Randall, and I think it's awesome that my son goes there now.... way cool!!!

The only way to save this school is a reorganization of school boundaries. The school district needs to distribute all these students to other better performing schools. Also, new students from other better performing school areas need to fill this school. That is the only workable solution to help and encourage these under achieved students to perform better by hanging around and being helped by other super students. This plan should be implemented immediately. Kids grow fast, waiting any longer will only waste their future and contribution to our communities.

Randall teachers work very hard to provide a safe enviorment for the students. They do face many obstacles but they do their best to help the children.

The 2004-2005 school year brought another principal to Randall School. She has done an remarkable job of motivating both students and staff and is continuing to do so. Their are positive changes happening at this school, which, with the dedication of the all involved, will help raise the API scores.

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.
