There are many amazing teachers at this school and the principal is great too, very involved and easy to talk to. They have also had a Playworks program this year and it has made a difference, great to see all the kids involved and working together and always having fun.

Lampton has really great staff members but needs more parent involvement. The classrooms have about 30-32 students per teacher with no assistance. If more parents would volunteer, the teachers could provide their undivided attention to our children and not have attend to 10 different things all at one time.

My son is entering the 5th grade and I couldn't ask for a better school. Mrs. Rayburn is an awesome principal and interacts with the students ever chance she gets. The school finished modernization a few years back and now they are in the process of adding murals. The teachers put the welfare of the students first and if the parent voices a concern they take care of it immediately. When my son fell behind it was the principal and teachers that brought him to grade level.

Love the school! My daughter started going to this school 3 months into the school year. I had her at a school in the ABC school district where she learned nothing!. After placing her here at this school, she has learned sooo much and I am so suprised and greatful for the teacher she has. ( Mrs Quesada) Mrs. Quesada is such a great kinder teacher and I couldn't have asked for a more better one. The staff is really nice, the principal is really involved with the school and the kids always have such cute little artsy things to bring home. My daughter loves coming here and never complains about going to school in the morning. The teacher makes the class more welcoming. I heard that her story times were magical. Ha-ha. When my daughter comes homes everyday she tries to be the teacher and acts like her. I couldn't blame her because she is so nice and patient with the children. I am overall satisfied thus far with this school! Ihope this review helps in your search.

The school is great! Staff is good,I can't say much about principal Miss. Rayburn. She is not very apptochable. They however need to treat all kids fairly and not put aside those that parents don't work for district.

Lampton is a good school. The staff is great, and the principal is a workaholic. She's awesome, and keeps the school in order.

Lampton is an okay school. I have seen cockroaches in the multi-purpose room twice and the buildings are outdated, but the staff has been friendly and helpful when needed. I believe it you show your teacher that you are truly interested in helping your child succeed, your kids get the help they need. It is frustrating though that the expectations of many students is to get through high school when I'm trying to set higher expectations in my children that they will go to college.

I am the parent of a kindergartner with special needs. My son is reading, learning math and interacting with children of his age with minimal support outside of his two loving, fabulously patient, teachers Ms. Guzman & Ms. Citizen. The principal has called me personally on her own time to congratulate my boy on a job well done at school! Wow! I am proud of Loretta Lampton's staff, all of their efforts and above all the accomplishments they help our students achieve.

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.
