I really LOVE this school!! It's the best because both my daughters have came a long way academically! To all the staff there that make that school the best! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication! Keep on doing what you all do.

this school is the best because they teach very well and help students if they need help

I'm continually astonished by the high quality of teaching, dedication of all staff (from the principal to the campus supervisors), and the positivity of the social environment. The end-of-year open house I attended a few weeks ago was tremendously moving. The teachers at Cortez should feel tremendous proud. They are part of something truly wonderful and that is pretty rare.

I am going into 7th grade this next year and im transfering schools and from what i've heard from the reviews i think the HW is going to be hard but it will help me in life. To the person who gave it a 1 rating i have something to say to you. So wht if she has 4 projects in H.S you will have like 10 projects (as i've heard from high schoolers).

This school has opened my future by helping me gain enough knowledge for challenges that lie ahead. I am currently a 9th grader now but i attended 5 to 8 grades at Cortez. For starters you will get homework, projects, and tests no lie about that. But of course as i got older from 5th grade to 6th some of my classmates started leaving? Alot told me "oh it's to hard" "too much homework to strict" Well i started to think maybe i should move but my mom refused!! I thank her for that becuase finishing 8th grade at cortez has helped me in high school becuase some of the material i am learning i have learned at Cortez!!! when everyone else has no idea what it is..:) i was in this school while Mrs. Alvarez was principal now they have changed principals but my younger 9 year old brother attends 4th grade there! Very good teachers are there that help you and encourage you in your academic grades:) i graduated last year 2011 and think what a privillage i had to be in a school like Cortez! It is hard if you don't do the homework In the end promotion for 8th grade is amazing!! A very good school!! even though i thought it was horrible sometimes becuase of the homework i made it with a 3.6:):)

Cortez is a great institution, their teachers and principal are fantastic. They go above and beyond in their work with the students so as to prepare them for the future. As for the mother that gave Cortez a 1 star rating because her "daughter said it was hard," all I can say is if she can't handle 7th/8th grade math you better get her additional help now because it doesn't get any easier. The projects help the students prepare for what is to come, once they get to H.S. that's all it is projects, essays, presentations, experiments, reading, oh yeah and then there's the homework too. This is what will seperate the successfull students that go on to great universities, degrees and careers from those who just get by or worse yet end up dropping out. Cortez Rocks!!! Keep up the awesome work...

My daughter is finishing second grade this is the first year she is at this school and I am very happy, the teachers are highly qualified, the principal leadership is the best, and she is keeping the parents highly involved. They have tha after school program that ends at 6 pm. and there is a lot of homework help, and a lot of different activities based on a curriculum not only baby sitting kids. Scince she was at other school within the district for first grade, and we run into a lot of bulling activities, and the teachers spent more time disciplining the kids instead of teachin. During this year she was assigned to a toutoring group to cathc up with her peers that start first grade in this school. The comunication with the teachers and principal is very good.

7th grade is really HARD... however my experience is... my child has been offered "free" after school tutoring to keep her passing. Math is not her "thing" as she says, but the tutoring does keep her above water, when she attends. any loss in understanding for her appears to be her own doing or "un doing" at this point. I so far can not blame the school.

These teachers aren't mean per say, they are just strict, they help children to think ahead for the future, all of these projects are to help your students be better at a certain subject.


Posted January 9, 2011

i personally have to agree..Cortez is a school of greatness..there are so many teachers that care for the students. there are many assignments that are given out..but there shouldnt be any problem completing them.the school gives them ahead of timee so that the students have the ability to turn in an A+ assignment..i as a student at Cortez..love the way the teachers communicate among eachother i think that with the teachers soing thiss..it jst helps the teachers understand where each student struggles more..so that they know there weakness and strength..there are not many schools that have teachers that do so..Cortez is a school of one of a kindd..i dontt thinkk there is any school like or better then it


Posted December 31, 2010

I love this school. This school had great teaching skills, great teachers, and a great principal. Everyone is nice, polite, and friendly. At this school there is a friendly atmosphere because of the kind and smart caring students, teachers, and staff. This school is amazing, and if it were to change, it would change the school even better. I don't think there is another school as great as this one, I love it!


Posted December 11, 2010

Excuse me sir/ma'am. Before you post things up like this shouldn't you do do something about it first. If you don't like your daughter coming here, then why don't you take her out and then post the comment? You obviously like this school because you don't take her out. That I know of, no algebra student this year has left this exemplary school. Yes the students get projects but they are not hard and they don't get a lot. If your daughter does waste her time and does her project until the last minute, then yes, obviously it will SEEM hard but in reality it isn't. The teachers ARE NOT mean. They might be strict but it's all part of education and the teachers aren't that strict either. They talk and joke around with the students and it's like the teachers and students are close friends but things don't get out of hand either. I give this school a 5 out of 5 but I would give it a 5 out of 100 if I could. I believe this school is great! The comment that gave this school 1 star is a FALSE statement and is not true about this marvelous school.

Too much homework and projects. My 7th Grade daughter in Algebra has 4 projects and the teachers are not nice especially this one teacher she says.

Posted September 20, 2010

....but why "boot out" kids who aren't keeping up? Can you really assess a school who only keeps the performing students and weeds out kids who can't keep up? Any school that had this option would be exemplary. Just a thought........

Students are complete ladies and gentlemen from K through 8th grade. It's so neat to hear substitutes and visitors comment on the 'great behavior' of our students when they visit or when students leave campus for field trips and events. I love that the bar is set for great acheivement and behavior for all students and they are encouraged to reach those goals through loving, firm and collaborative learning. The teachers actually like students and teaching and it shows in the behavior and learning of the students, and those dreaded test and test scores meeting the challenges set before them each and every time. Cortez has been open for 3 years and each year get's better.

Cortez has lived up to my expectations and more. The teachers take pride in their work and tell me that they have a great sense of teamwork among them. I believe it when I see how they interact with their coworkers and with the students. Discipline is strict, and I feel that helps students feel safe on their campus. At the same time, the students can tell that their teachers and the staff at Cortez really care about them as individuals. It's an excellent environment for learning.

As a parent volunteer at Cortez, I've been able to see that the day to day campus environment is consistently safe, nurturing, and motivational for student learning. Not only academic learning but also social learning.

As someone who has taught middle schools for many years, I can attest that a tremendous amount of work and passion goes into creating even a mediocre school. The fact that Cortez is so exemplary is a testament to an absolutely phenomenal principal and an excellent staff. If every school functioned with the same commitment to academic excellence, high behavioral expectations, and parent communications as Cortez, there would be no crisis in education. Cortez is truly a model school among model schools.

Thus far I am satisfied with Cortez. My daughter is in the 2nd grade this year, and she had a wonderful 1st grade teacher (Puga) last year. I push my daughter hard, and I appreciate an education that assists me in wanting to see her progress. I think that I have received this from Cortez. I appreciate the science based curriculum; however, I do not like the emphasis on testing, which is an unfortunate reality of our public education system. However, I am reluctant about public education and PUSD, but as long as she is challenged, I will allow her to remain at Cortez. Unlike the parent above, I do not mind the Spanish translations, the school is predominately Latino, and many of the parents are monolingual Spanish speakers. They deserve information about their children s education.. What would be great is if there were lower grade level Spanish classes for the non Spanish speaking children, so that our children could have a chance to work and have careers in Southern California in the future.

I love this school!! My daughter mind is finally being exercised =) I just wish they didn't have to translate everything into Spanish. If they didn't do that, this would be a 5 star school.

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.
