My child loves this school. She has been attending since kindergarten, and is now in 3rd grade. I love that everyone (teachers, parents, staff) knows each other. The principal is great as well. All four teachers my child has had, have been great, and very caring.

I've had 3 children go through this school and they all enjoyed it there. The staff is great and they give you extra help when needed.

The teachers all care about the kids. They go above and beyond the classroom to help the kids learn and discover.

Sugerhill is a fine school. The Teachers are great and the office staff is always helpful. I am truly impressed with the parent volunteers that I see on campus and it is not only moms but dads too!

The academic pace these kids are on is way too fast for MOST of the kids at this school. If you look at the test score averages it will show you just how bad these kids need help. They need to have more than two weeks on any given chapter so they have a chance to absorb what they are supposed to be learning; whether it be math, english, social studies or any other subject. As you can see, they need help desperately in order to bring their scores up in the future!

Concerned about the teachers having to go so far - from classroom to office to use the bathroom. Limited bathroom facilities for the students. Teachers have no telephones in their rooms which makes all communications over the intercom system public. I feel that these things should be available for teachers use as they are professional people and should be awarded these considerations

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.
