I was very excited to get my son into this school. I had met the Principle. I was super excited when his out of district transfer was accepted. We, like 1/4th of the population of the school are out of district transfers. I was very disappointed to find out just recently that their excellent school scores have more to do with fudging the numbers than actually putting their students first. They "cherry pick" from the out of district transfers and then "boot" the rest and bring in a whole other set of district transfer kids to "cherry pick" from. I fear this may be the real reason that they lost Mr. Jon Ray the amazing principle they had last year. This school puts their own funding and "status" above the needs of it's students. I think it's morally wrong and a true disappointment. For those of you who are having their children required to find another school: You have rights request a SST and take action. It's hard enough on a 5 year old to adjust to the first year of school. It's just not in the best interest of the child to then have to move him to another school, teacher, kids etc. Let's put the kids first Bonsall West!

AMAZING school. From the principal to the custodian this school is top notch. We couldn't be happier with our experience. Wish we lived here when our oldest was in elementary! Mr. Ray makes you feel like family. So far all the teachers I have encountered are highly educated and passionate about children. My son LOVES to go to school. What a jem!

This is the best Elementary school around! I cannot express in words how impressed I am with the staff. My daughter is in Miss Bruners kindergarten class this year. She entered kindergarten behind in the social aspects of it, and has just blossemed this year. I LOVE Miss B, she is the best kinder teacher I have ever came across. They are all great. We love Mr. Ray, and appriciate his dedication to the children. I volunteer at kindergarten, and am always so happy when I see how involved the teachers are. Thank you Bonsall West for going above and beyond.

We are a military family and a parents to 4 children, and this is my oldest daughter's 4th elementary school. We have seen what else is out there, and by far, this school rocks it! From the smartboards and technology the students are using daily, to the genuine care from the teachers, to the outstanding principal, this is top quality. We are excited to be at Bonsall West, and even more excited the kids can stay here for a bit. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for top notch academics, a caring staff, and up-to-date technology. My children look forward to going to school each day and have never asked to stay home - even wanting to go when they are sick. Thank you BW for being a greta partner is my children's education.

I am a military wife and we move around a lot. This school by far is the best all around! The principal Mr. Ray is so wonderful! More schools should push to have a principal that loves kids and makes them excited about school and learning! I will be very sad when we have to leave! Go to a Morning Sing on Friday 8:00 and you will see for yourself!

My daughter's first year in this school and couldn't be happier. We like that the teachers are involved with the student's academic progress. School ground is beautiful and very clean.. Plenty of great activities year round and many opportunities for parental involvement.

I have 4 kids and 3 have already attended. We love the environment and the extra school activities. The teachers are always willing to listen and help our children succeed. The Principle is energetic and the kids just adore him. There is plenty of opportunity for parent involvement and we really love the feeling community at the school.

My children have attended Bonsall West for 2 1/2 years now and we are very pleased with the school. Mr. Ray, the new principal this year is very well liked by both students and parents. He is very approachable and open to new ideas. His Friday moring assemblies promote high morale and unity for the entire school. The teachers we've had have been great. The PTA works really hard to provide more for the children in terms of library books, field trips, classroom grants and more. There is a good after school program. I would encourage more parents to get involved in their child's classrooms and in the PTA to make it an even better school. Overall, very happy.

Bonsall West is one of the best schools in North County San Diego with a great staff, hard working student body, and a high level of parent support.

This school is FABULOUS! I have 3 children that attend Bonsall West and I can't say enough about how great it is. The teachers are VERY informative and have constant communication with the parents. I feel like I always know what is happening in my childrens' classes. Parents are very involved with school activities and the PTA is wonderful and welcoming. Mr. Ray, the principal, is new to the school this year and totally rocks. If you are new to the area or a parent with questions about the school, call and ask if you can attend the Friday assembly. Within 30 minutes, you can tell this school has positive, engaged teachers, students who care about their education and respect of others and a leader (Mr. Ray) who is positive, energetic and inspiring to all he leads. Bonsall West is the best school my children have ever attended!

We have children in K & 1st grade. This is an awesome school! We are so happy to part of this community and school.

Ask any parent at Bonsall West and they will agree that this is a great school. Kids in all grades K-6th are challenged to do there best. There are plenty of resources for children who need extra help too. Teachers use the school's website and email to communicate homework assignments and upcoming events, yet they are never too busy to pick up the phone or stop you during pick-up time if they need to tell you something. The PTA is really great. They plan family nights, art contests, variety shows, etc. Lots of parent volunteers, caring teachers and a great principal make this school the success that it is.

Amazing school. I have three kids attending: K, 4th, & 6th (yes its actually K-6th not K-5 as of last year). Great teachers who are willing to communicate in person, or e-mail on anything from simple to complicated issues. Education is challenging but not overwhelming. Campus is newer (2005) and it looks beautiful. Good after school program on site through Boys & Girls Club. Before the first bell rings they have 'running club' for 30 minutes where kids can run laps and earn 'foot tokens'...very cool way to encourage exercise. Can't say enough good things about Bonsal West Elementary.

Bonsall West has the best teachers ever! Each teacher is very supportive of all students, including those needing extra help. This school has been great for my daughter. I would absolutely recommend the 6th grade program here.

Great school for average learners. No gifted and talented program. Not a lot of extra resources for some kids who need help in some subjects.

BW is a phenomenal school! The teachers and staff are passionate and dedicated, the parents are highly involved and vital to the school's success, and the principal shows great leadership. PTA is growing with many hardworking parent volunteers and supports the school 110%.

Academic program is excellent. Other than Boys and Girls Club, there are no extracurriculars. I found the PTA to be exclusive.

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.
