Since the principal change at Kelley in 2008 the quality of the overall school experience has improved tremendously. Parental involvement (PTA) this year is already double that of 2009/10. The more parents are involved the better it is for the students and the staff. Teachers and students both respond better to a happier campus and the quality of teaching and learning improves dramatically.

I have noticed many changes at Kelley since the change of Administrators, they are out on campus and I hear from my child how much the principal visits her classroom. My daughter loves her teacher and the after school program.

My three children were not originally excited to come to Kelley from our last district. One of them in particular was beginning to have behavior issues at school. I went to Kelley to speak with someone about my son, the principal was very nice and took time to meet with me on the spot. Now I am very happy to say that his behavior has improved greatly. My other two kids also tell me how much they love their teachers. Thank you Kelley.

My son entered Kelley this school year. Previously he had grades equivalent to A's and B's. He had social issues in the classroom that were addressed by admin to be behavioral problems that were his decision. When asked if he could be evaluated for learning/ psychological problems I was told no. He ended up with grades that stated he was below his grade level even thought he scored the highest in his class on one of the benchmarks. He is reading two grades above his grade level but his report card indicated below grade level. He is very smart and his needs were not being met at this school. He claimed that his classroom was too noisy for him and was bullied more than once. If the admin had been more understanding to my sons needs I believe he would have had a better year.

This school falls well below standards, mine and the State's. My son attends this school and has learned nothing close to what the State lists as standards for his grade. When I asked him if he knew his capitals he said, 'I know the first letter of the sentence has to be a capital.' They only teach what is needed to pass State testing so they don't end up a PI school again. They do English and Math all day. My son didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked if his class works on Health or History. The school's idea of working on History is a project sent home over vacation. The amount of homework required is also a joke! Rialto District's policy on homework is that it is to count no more than 10% of the final grade, and off-track homework or projects are voluntary!

My Daughter has been here since K. She is below the state guidelines. I feel that the teachers she has had are pushing most of the teaching off to the parents. Out of the 4 years/grades, twice there was a teacher illness or injury that caused the teachers to leave the class half way threw the school year, both times the school knew the teachers would be leaving before the school year ended and still they let them start the school year teaching. This is the reason I feel the schools standards are low, the teachers are always changing.

My two girls, eleven and eight which attend 4th & 5th grades, are both very discouraged. They claim they get no help from their teachers, and when they raise their hands to ask a question they get ignored. one of my girls believes she is discriminated against because she is constantly ignored. she went through this same thing last year with a previous teacher in 3rd grade. she was happy only when she was in the 2nd grade, she was very happy with her teacher , and that teacher used to like her, and help her a great deal. My girl would get up eagerly every morning to go to school, but now she hates school. My older girl is no diferrent. She feels she has no support from her teacher. I am very discouraged with this 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.
