Great school, very caring teachers, lots of parents involved, great combination. Mrs. Diana Martinez one of the BEST teachers ever. Thank you Mrs. Martinez for such a great 8th year for my son.

I have a 7th grader and a 3rd grader. The staff is very caring and work deligently with the kids. My 3rd grader is in the dual immersion progam, the only problem with the program is that I wish my 7th grader had gone through the program! For all English only speakers you will be amazed at how far advanced your child is when going through the program. The kids feel safe here, no drugs, and the students care about each other.

The school staff is always looking for improvement, excellent programs and education. My daugther enjoyed every day at kindergarten. She can read and write in Spanish and English, in a basic level. She is ready to go to first grade.

About these ratings

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

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.
