This is a very nice school! My daughter is learning a lot, including the true joy of reading! She reads every night for 30 minutes and takes an Accelerated Reader quiz after finishing each book, which lets me know her reading level! She is happy with her teacher, the staff and her friends!

I loved my son's kindergarten teacher and how much she made learning fun for her students: making applesauce pancakes, finding the gingerbread man all over campus, Dr. Seuss month, putting on plays with guidance from middle school students, and so much more! Each week my son came home with projects that blew me away. I loved how she also challenged my son as well and took in some of my ideas for the class too, like starting a garden. The parents who are involved in PTA and this school are so dedicated to these kids as well: Read-A-Thon, Monster Mash Dance for Halloween, Winter Holiday concert, Earth Week (a fantastic assembly on cooling the earth), Just this past spring, one of our teachers was named Teacher of the Year. ESL students AND their parents come an hour before school starts to learn English in the computer lab; they are so dedicated to their kids. The principal is very inviting as well (unlike others I've heard about in the district); If those neighborhood parents who can afford private school chose to come to Theuerkauf instead, this school can have high gov't scores like Huff and Bubb. Theuerkauf is truly an awesome neighborhood school to send your children.

This school reflects our community which is something that we really value for our kids. They have made friends with kids from all sorts of different backgrounds which, to us, is also an important part of learning. The teachers that our daughters have had so far have been dedicated, creative and caring. The principal is also very involved and accessible. Over the past three years, the school has continued on its upward trajectory, improving not only its test scores for the majority of the kids but also adding a state of the art computer room among many other things.

I admit when my kids first started here I was very nervous and pictured all sorts of horrible things due to the test scores, but all it took was one visit & I knew that I had nothing to worry about. The teachers are excellent and pay attention not only to your child, but also to your concerns. The School, Teachers and PTA welcome parent participation. The Principal is always available if you need to speak with her. Chances are you will find her outside talking to the kids & not just sitting in her office. Yesterday I was speaking with a friend of mine & she said that last year she was having problems with bullying & when she asked to speak to the Principal @ her School in Sunnyvale, she was asked to fill out a request to see the principal. My friend had to fill out a request three times before the principal even bothered to call her back. I was shocked as every time I have needed to speak to our Principal she has been ready & willing to talk or meet with me. Don t let the scores keep you from seeing the bigger picture, meet with the teachers, talk to other parents & most importantly volunteer, participate & make the changes you want to see happen.

Our family believes in our neighborhood school. The teachers are excellent, including this year's district teacher-of-the-year. This past year the principal earned a grant for a new computer lab and innovative math curriculum using the computers. As a result student performance has improved. The campus itself is first rate and technologically up-to-date. Students are involved in a a variety of extra-curricular offerings including chess club, chorus, green team (environmental awareness), mouse squad (geek squad for kids), and scouting. There is so much more to a school than test scores and more to education than facts and figures. At Theuerkauf children are receiving a first-rate education among a diverse student body, truly reflecting our community.

We adore this school, the principal, teachers and staff! The teachers work diligently with the children. The PTA does an awesome job on putting family events together, recognizing teachers' hard work, rewarding students and making the school a better place overall. The library is a wonderful place to sit quietly and read. Tons of books available. The Chess Club and Chorus Group enable kids to have fun while learning to work independently as well as in a group. The Theuerkauf community strives to provide a safe, educational-enriched environment . No place I'd rather have my baby.

Our family has been a part of Theuerkauf Elementary School for 10 years. The teachers are very dedicated to the students and have always done a great job. Parent participation is very low and that is unfortunate. Ms. Sawdey the Principal at Theuerkauf in my opinion is by far the best principal in the district. She has done a lot of great things for the students and the school. The campus is beautiful and nothing in Mountain View compares to it.

This is the best elementary school in Mountain View, CA. My child loves to go to school and he learns quite a bit. He comes home and tells us all about his day. Theuerkauf is a great school.

Theuerkauf school is a wonderful school that has been increasing our children's knowledge and test scores over the last three years. Our principal help get more and more families involved in the school and even helped parents form the first ever PTA for the school. Since Mrs. Sawdey's arrival, there has been more family activities that help parents get to know one another. My wife and I feel that Theuerkauf is headed in the right direction to offer all kids a quality education which includes music and art. There are great teachers,a principal and school personnel who reach out to us parents. We feel very welcomed and a real part of the Theuerkauf family. As an Armed Services family that has traveled all over the world, this is not always the case.

My children and I are very happy with all the changes that have been made. Our children are safe, they have fantastic teachers who work together so kids get what they need. We think the teachers and principal are doing great because our test scores keep going up.

We think Theuerkauf School is great! My family and I always feels welcomed and our kids are always excited about going to school. The teachers and principal are always available to talk with us. Almost every morning the principal is outside before school talking to the kids and parents. The changes over the past couple of years have been very good. Kids get taught by more than one teacher, there's new computers, software programs and more books get added to the library. Our test scores keep going up. Last year they went up 11 points and over 20 the year before. Pretty good proof that we are becoming one of the Great Schools. We finally got a PTA going too. So we've been having more family events. Theuerkauf is a great school because it values all kids and works hard to prepare students so they can do their best.

My child attended school last year which just had a change to a new principal. The school is a bit unorganized, and not very informative. Office staff and teachers are nice and informative if ask questions. I am not sure about the principal, she doesn't seem too involved in the students or parents. Overall school curriculum is so so. Not very high scores. My child seemed a bit bored and unchallenged.

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.

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.
