Thurgood marshall cares about their students. The teachers not only work with their students but with the parents too ! there are always fundraisers to give the students opportunities to go on day trips------to learn ! my granddaughter learned so much in kindergarten---her teacher was so exceptional. She made learning fun. And now her 1st grade teacher is doing the same. Teaching is a commitment and the teachers at thurgood marshall all have the same goal. To give each child a chance to learn to read, write, arithmatic,etc. But most of all to teach each student to get ready for the rest of their life !

My daughter is a kindergarten student here and I am very pleased with her teacher Mrs. Hoskins. Not only is she very motivated to teach she has enreiched my daugheter's life in the classroom. Although my daughter is an excellent student she is Mrs. Hoskins recognizes her srengths and weaknesses if there are any as well.

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.
