This is the best school for kids whose want to challenge and improve by them self. I have 3 kids from this school and they are so happy and enjoy school. My kids can not wait till summer end to come back to school. Thanks for all the teachers and staff whose working so hard for this happened.

Adding the academy program was a great improvement for the students. Young children are naturally curious and the academy enhancement is a great way to expose them to Art, Science, and Technology in a fun way. The staff is great. The proactiveness in communication varies by teacher, but that's typical in any environment. The teachers have so much to teach in limited amounts of time, so it's not unreasonable that there be a delay at times. Nonetheless, if you need more proactiveness; ask and you'll receive it. Worse case, involve the principal early on. The principal is fantastic. She's a great listener and enforces rules consistently and fairly. She's always willing to share ideas to help the children be successful. She also goes out of her way to ensure the students are happy and always makes the time to ask how they are doing. The school has a strong parent support system. You can always count on parents (working & non-working) making the time to help. A great educational experience is definitely the #1 priority here.

The principal at this school is absolutely wonderful. She really cares about the students, is fair and diplomatic, and I can't imagine better. The teachers I'd give 1-5 stars. To my child's current 5th grade teacher, I give 1 star. This teacher is inexperienced, visibly plays favorites, gives poor instructions, and intimidates my child. His 1st, 2nd, and 4th grade teachers were the best, 4-5 stars easily. Parent involvement is great. Facilities are good overall, even though old.

Academic programs are good except for the teaching of Hitler & the Jewish elimination during WWII. Music program was good but they limited the choices of instruments. Art & Sports programs are ok. The school appearance & upkeep is unacceptable I realize the school is older but that still shouldn't be an excuse.

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.
