Keep your kids away from this school as it has been in a downward spiral for quite a few years now. The Principal position used to be shared between two semi retired principals that split the time up. It left them constantly out of the loop. Thinking the latest principal addition would benefit the situation has actually only made things worse as she is now hated by both teachers and students as she acts like she is better than any of us and shows it consistently with no time to spend on parent or staff concerns.

My child spent their entire 6th grade year wasting away. She has been given 3 exams all year in math. Science was spent listening to the teacher regal the joys of his neighbors and personal life. No focus on reading. Other classes taught by other teachers with no communication skills (except screaming insults on the playground). The goal at Pershing for 6th grade is to prepare the students for the "middle school" experience. Worried about your 6th grader going to Middle School? Don't be, they will get all the bullying and indifference they need from Pershing! Good job! Hopefully I won't have to take 3 jobs to pay for my child's tutoring so they can get through 7th grade having missed crucial 6th grade material. Middle school won't have the Pershing lunch lady who gives free lunch handouts to the district employee kids who don't qualify for reduced fee programs. She has a big heart because these kids come to school with a carrot stick and slice of ham so slips them a freebie. It is not what you know; it is who you know!

The school is excellent however one of their 3rd grade teachers is not so great. She is punitive with the children and does not allow parents to participate in the classroom with the exception of a couple with whom she chooses to work. She made my child feel anxious for not knowing how to read at age 7 yrs old. Rather than trying to help and TEACH Mrs. Laret chose to make my child so upset as to not want to attend school

Student Safety is not this schools priority and the principal puts the protection of the school before the safety of the children and then chooses to not be forthcoming about it to the parents.

My kids love Pershing and so do I. Over the last couple years there has been lots of teacher and principal turn over, but our new principal is a keeper! I'm looking forward to another great year of learning.

We love Pershing Elementary. The teachers are amazing and help is available if your son or daughter is struggling in one of the subjects. The faculty is very supportive and they, too, work hard to make sure your child's experience at the school both fulfilling and enjoyable. My son is in the first grade and although there is a lot of homework, most of it is review from the day. For a public school, this one is fantastic!

We moved from another state that had high state ratings and were very pleasantly surprised to see that this California school well exceeded the curriculum our previous state. Much more homework, which is a great thing and challenges both of our kids. I don't understand it when parents complain if there is a bit more...I would think parents would want their kids to learn more. Isn't that what school is all about? The teachers are great and so patient and helpful with the transition to their new school. I highly recommend this school. They encourage parent involvement and so willing to help with everything. I am thrilled to have our children in such a great school!

I am a parent of 2nd grade and 4th grade RL (Rapid Learner) students. This has been a great year! The teachers are great, principal is great and will be missed. My children are challenged and happy. Their self esteem is strong in part because of the excellent environment they are in. I would highly recommend this school to RL kids and neighborhood kids. AND don't let anyone tell you the homework is too much or there is too much pressure in RL. If your kids are smart they rise to the challenge. There are not hours of HW. HW is very reasonable. If you have a commute, do it for your kids. You will not regret it.

With three children at Pershing, and this being our family's third elementary school in various states, we are VERY happy with our experience here. Mrs. Mellerup (principal) is a great listener and responsive to concerns. Parents are highly involved. Family activities abound to meet other parents. The Rapid Learner program is an OUTSTANDING program for our children who really benefit from advanced curriculum and yet the school has a wonderful balance of not making neighborhood students feel any less able. Their motto is: Pershing--were every child is gifted and some are rapid learners. I recommend it highly.

I am a student in the 6th grade Rl, and I have been in the program since 2nd grade. I really enjoy it, and the teachers are fabulous. I will definitely miss this school in the 7th grade.

My son has just attended third grade at Pershing. We moved here last fall and he came from a very small school. I like Pershing and was pleased with the effort his teacher made to help him through his transition difficulties. She was easy to contact and kept in touch about problems he was having.

I am a parent of diabetic child. My son started attending Pershing in 5th grade. I was worried about how the staff would react to his health care needs and getting the right assistance. The Office staff was always cooperative in ensuring our son's health and well being, by being open to assisting in his care. His 6th grade teacher Ms. Martin has been great at helping our son to not feel he's different from the other kids because of his diabetes, and was a big part of our decision to allow our son to attend 6th grade camp, for 4 days. We are very pleased with Pershing school and it's staff.

I currently have 1st, 3rd, and 6th graders. As a single dad raising them, I try to be involved voluntarily, but only can sparingly. I am amazed and proud of the parental involvement and genuine caring from this community. Every teacher my kids have had are clear in expectations, accountable, and personable. The principal, Mrs. Louie, is excellent in handling both the obstacles and opportunities involved in creating a more than solid learning atmosphere.

My daughter's experience at Pershing Elementary School was not exactly different than any that we've had to put her in (I and my family have had to settle in many different areas in the US), but the teachers were uncommonly supportive and 'nice', and I really enjoyed their creatively presented school productions, especially.

I have 2 teenaged children who attended Pershing from grades 2-6, and now have my two younger children currently enrolled there. All four were in the Rapid Learner Program which I believe provides a private school education for the public school price. The teachers are gifted educators, the current principal is the best administrator I've seen in the 13 years that I've had children in local schools, the physical site is safe, clean, and appealing to children, and the extra curricular activities are excellent. The school drama productions are of a professional quality, and the band and choir groups are popular among the students. The PTA is a very active force at the school, and the parent participation has continued to grow over the past 5 years. With 2 children now in high school, I have been very pleased with the fundamental preparation they received in grade school!

I was a student at Pershing Elementary from 3rd grade to 6th grade. Pershing is a great school! The staff is very kind and personable, the teachers are the best quality, and the school is safe has a nice academic environment to learn in. When I attended Pershing, I was is the RL(Rapid Learner) Program. This wonderful program lets your child excel and learn grade levels beyond state requirements. The teachers in this program appreciate students that are eager to excel academically. They also prepare the students very well for the SATs and the next grade they will be entering. If you are considering to enroll your child in this school, go for it! (And remember, Pershing is a safe, academic environment intended for students to enjoy learning, so bad or inappropriate behaivor will not be tolerated.)

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.
