I have 3 children attending this school previously my 2 oldest we're attending a school in Pomona at there old school they learn nothing the teachers didn't focus on the students who had trouble reading and writing like my daughter they focus on the students that knew this stuff but last year I made the switch to Ramona I as a mother couldn't be happier with all the progress my children have achieve. The staff at this school is great their really friendly the teachers are awesome but the best part is they treat all there students the same they don't make preferences on the students that know more than others I couldn't be happier with this amazing school...

My children were extremlely affected by this school. The principal mrs. Clark would start rumors and have kids spy on each other. Bathrooms were always locked and told they couldnt go because they didnt have enough passes. Kids got away with bullying, inappropraite touching of private parts and cussing. Teachers work hard but no support in the office for behavior. Principal never on playground at recess and shakes her head like someones elses problem.

My daughter goes to this school. The teachers are caring and try to work with the kids at their level of learning. They help the ones who need the extra help and challenge the ones who need that challenge. The staff really cares about the students.

We have the most outstanding teaching staff. We work hard to teach the whole child, not just the test score! It's a wonderful community and worthy of all the help it can get.

This school has made such great progress over that past several years. The teachers work very hard to make sure the students learn. There are many great things that the staff does to increase student motivation. My children have really enjoyed their experience at this school.

Ramona is a great school. There are lots of wonderful programs for the kids such as musicals like Annie and The Wizard of Oz. The staff is caring and they do special activities for the students and the families such as 'Night of the STARS' to honor academic excellence.

My daughters were always encouraged to push themselves. The teachers & staff really care about their students.

My daughter was an RSP student at Ramona. I found their RSP program to be extremely lacking in all areas. I also had to fight for every single service I received for her. She was also bullied on the playground repeatedly with little intervention from the staff. We are now in a new school district and the difference in the RSP services she receives is like night and day. I would highly recommend that parents transfer their children out of this school and district if possible.

While the staff seems to keep the kids fairly happy, the academic side wasn't up to par.

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.
