We were very excited about this school when we first moved here, as all indications pointed toward it being excellent. However, we have been sorely disappointed with the promised differentiation and the lack of academic challenge.

Both my kids go to Zanker and they absolutely love it. I love Mrs Kim. She is funny, great teacher and challenges each student in their own way. Ms. Cohen is also very nice to students. I can not comment on the principal as a parent. I wish though there was more opportunity to participate as a parent in extra curricular activities. The school needs to invest in that. But overall I would give 4.5 starts to the experience.

Zanker school is circling the drain... so sad they've brought over sub-par staff (principal, teachers) from Russell.

I miss Mrs. Doi!! I agree that I have to give the new principal a chance but dont like the changes. I do however love all the teachers Mrs Ballenger, Mrs, Spanegal and Mrs Cheung are all awesome. I havent had experience with the other teachers but am sure also have great teaching skills and ethics. 3 star because I would like to see more parent involvement and extra curricular activities ( I know sadly due to budget cuts) I also see many parents smoking while walking to school and that does not set good examples to other children. 3 star because I wish friday fun still existed :(

The school was great before Miss doi retired. Everything was organized and it was about our children . The new principal is rude and wears inappropriate clothing she has no experience and no business at all working in this school. I wound'nt be supprise if parents are going to start pulling their kids out of this school and staff and teachers are going to quit cause of her. Mr. Superintendent if you care about our kids not just saving money and kissing someone's you know what, get rid of her and find someone more qualified to do the job. Be more understanding on what our school needs and don't be selfish. A lot of things was change, that's ok. Make sure our kids are happy. I wouldn't donate my time and money to this principal at all. Parents has the power to get her fired stick together call the district make a complaint or file a petition to get her out of our school. We where 9.5 ratings before, now 7.

Can not agree more with the most recent negative reviews about Zanker elementary and the new principle . As a parent, I am also very disappointed this year with the new principle came to Zanker. Still hard to understand and get used to her style. Also feel she may not have enough experience for the young kids education and can not see her passion either on how to make Zanker better. Do miss the former principle Mrs. Doi and she really cared about the kids from her heart and has done an excellent job to keep good communication with parents as well.

I am really concerned for Zanker School. The new principal is making the school a very bad environment. She is very immature, money hungry & heartless. Parents please do not donate money to the school so she can use it for herself. I know some parents are upset with the staff but the principal is making them do things they do not want to do. If parents care for their children you should complain to Milpitas school district. Remember is school staff isn't happy the children aren't happy .


Posted September 20, 2013

Pearl Zanker used to have a wonderful principal who really cared for staff & students. This year we got a new young principal who is trying to move up the latter & to look good infront of the superintendent which she is friends with. She is not working for the children but for herself. She also has no experience with young children at all, (that's why she needs help from a retired principal from Curtner Elementary. She is not a good influence on the children with the way she dresses & her 10inch high heals . This is a elementry school not a fashion show . Please if anyone has complaints go to the school board, & write petitions.

My both kids attended Perl Zanker school. They really enjoyed school environment and teachers. In KG both kids had Mrs. Belanger, she is very good with kids and pretty dynamic. She really put lots of effort to get kids ready for next level while having fun throughout the school year. I worked as a volunteer for sometime in Mrs. Belanger's class and I do admire her teaching technique. She does have lots of patience and really knows how to work with kids.

school is excellent . It is not linked to the API scores shown .the campus looks so new and clean . Teachers are great . the morning assembly , birthday wishes and uniforms makes it more like a British school . kids get the feel of going to school here .Parents are happy too.Very disciplined, wish it goes on.

An absolutely amazing school! Its rating doesn't do it justice - it should be a 10! But its API scores should be considered along with the fact that it's situated in a middle class mixed neighborhood. The principal is very experienced and has done a good job of building a core of committed and experienced teaching staff that does an extremely commendable job of keeping a strong focus on academics. A nice mix of extra-curricular activities like Run For Fun, Young Author's Faire, Young Artist's Faire and more. Good discipline with a strictly enforced dress code.

My daughter has been at Zanker since Kindergarten and is now in the third grade. Mrs Doi is an incredibly motivated and motivating principal who is very involved with both students and staff. Academic excellence is clearly the focus at Zanker and this is translated with the challenging programs that the teachers provide. I want to point out Ms. Chen as a great example of a teacher who challenges her students to achieve academic excellence in her class.

This school has a wonderfully dedicated principal and excellent teachers. The school also continues to improve in API scores each year. My daughter is now in the second grade and all her teachers were great. I could not be more happy having my child go to this public school.

Zanker is a wonderful school for children to be in. Every child is truly valued and also encouraged to do their best. The teachers are highly skilled and they help each child to bring out the best in them. Their GATE and Special Education program is great. Safety and Discipline are top priority here. They have a lot of fun and extracurricular activities that the children look forward to. The School and PTA newsletters keep parents updated on all events in the school. Zanker is a California Distinguished School!

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.

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.
