I think this school is average.The principal and staff are attentive to childrens needs.Sometimes parents are quick to judge but are they volunteering to make their childs school better?

when i was goin here the teachers were really good to me so were the teachers they helped me out.


Posted October 2, 2008

a better school to send my kids to but that unfortunately isn't within my budget. I should have known that when you goto back to school nite and it looks like a flea market or swap meet there is definately something wrong. All the other Jr High Schools did the meet and greet the teacher in the classroom for a short period of time with a quick Q & A. But not Yuba Gardens! I advise parents when looking into Yuba Gardens to just glance through the windows and keep walking. They don't have what it takes to give any child a good education and they don't instill any common values to the students. It's a wonder the district still keeps it open.

We moved to Olivehurst from Carmichael and I have been very disappointed with this school. My child was in 6th grade and never had homework. I talked to the teacher on several occasions and did not get an adequate answer other that well she finishes it in class. Makes me wonder how much teaching was going on for her to have time to complete homework during that class. Last year there were several bomb threats and at least one lock down. I will give the school credit for a great band program and after school program. Other than the band program and after school program not much good to say about the experience with this school.

We moved from Roseville to Olivehurst. This school offers more electives than my sons previous school. They also provide free tutoring/homework help after school. The teachers at this school seem to genuinely care about the students. The teachers send frequent updates on how my son is doing in class. They were also very quick to get back to me when I had questions. Over all we are very pleased with the academic programs, extracurricular activities, and most of all quality of teachers at this school.

I have an eighth grader at Yuba Gardens and a child who gratuated in 2004. It has been a great experience for both children. My eighth grader has been on the A Honor Roll since the sixth grade. My child who graduated started out badly with Ds/Cs in sixth grade brought her grades up to make the B Honor Roll four times in eighth grade. She couldn't have done it without the key teachers who pushed her to excell to her fullest potential in learning. Yuba Gardens has great clubs for the kids to join and sports to participate in to keep them on the right track and out of trouble. The office staff and teachers should be commended for their outstanding performance in making every child count.

Great School. Great Staff. I went to this school as a child and now my children go to this school. And some of the same teachers are still there. The teachers take the time to help the students. All team players!

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.
