If you want your children to be safe and get treated fairly DO NOT send your children here they have the worst principal ever she has no respect for the parents children or staff. She has COMPLANTES against her and the board that is in charge of this site sides with her and does not listen to the parents. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE.

my daughter attendeed this school for kinder and first grade. Two of my kids through there whole elem. The teachers for kinder and first grade were great for all three of my kids, Mrs. Tropitini and Mrs. Barber. My kids and I will always remember both my girls say they love you. Grades 2nd and up, not so great! Parent involvment also terrible! This would help so much. The music teacher was also great! really love kids. Mr. Barber was also caring teach. The Principal, really needs to change attitude with parents, teacher and students.

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.
