This is an AMAZING school.I have been here from 2nd to 5th grade.the last review abou the school is NOT true the only reason why the principle yells at us is because he wants his school to be on top.He actually cares about the school unlike other principle.and BTW he is not yelling he's just telling us that we need to work harder.so if you think the principle is yelling you are wrong.Keep up the good work I have enjoyed you as my principle for 4 years!The staff are amazing because if these teachers and ESPECIALLY the principle,middle school is very easy.This is an awesome school so I suggest you to attend it the staff CARES!Best School Ever!!the teachers also teach good technics to make learning easier.

This school is Terrible . Where do I begin? The principal of this school yells at the children from the top of his lungs. Seeing how Dr.Stewart the principal behaves in this manner so does ALL of his staff. Simply find a different school ..not unless your ok with his staff screaming and throwing pencils in the class room.

Hughbanks and its staff has reinstated my belief in the possability to have a working public education system. The principal walks, this school, and shares ownership of it and all that it teaches with each teacher, child and parent. Greets each one as well, with respect and kindness. The spirit starts with him and his close relationship with each member of his staff , trickles down and each person knows how valuble their role is to keeping spirits high at Hughbanks. Never loosing sight of the ultimate goal to educate children.

I am very pleased with Hughbanks Elementary. The academic program is very encouraging for my child and she has also begun violin lessons. I feel they make a great effort in trying to involve the parents and send anyone who wants to go to training to understand the structure, budgets and goals.

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.
