I write this on the last day of the 13-14 school year. This will be hard to articulate, but here goes. On MANY evenings I was surprised to hear the stories related to me by my son regarding his day. Things that were said by both Administration down to teachers. Every year hoping, maybe this teacher will be different only to be disappointed again. My biggest issue is the culture of complete unprofessional behavior with no regard or even a slight care that their words could and may get back to a parent. Students singled out at assemblies and in class inappropriately. (No boss could ever get away with this treatment) But we allow our children to be subjected to it. Yes, what I was told by my son was reported to the Principal. In return my student was met with retaliation from the teacher. Just what you want, a child afraid to tell his parents what is going on at school because what happens next to him is worse by his teacher or administration for being a whistle blower. The few teachers he had at Alcott seemed burned out and no longer enjoy their career. I hear a new Principal is coming. Let's see if it makes a difference. Parents here are very apathetic as well.

My son attended Alcott for first grade seven years ago, so this review is not a reflection on the current administration. However, one should always watch out for their child. My son, who is now in middle school and the only recent middle school student to go to the State Science Fair two years in a row in RUSD, was blocked from being placed in the GATE program at Alcott by the district because he scored 97% instead of 98%. Instead, Alcott administration, against his first-grade teacher's recommendations, was placed in a level two ESL (English as a Second Language) class for second grade. They said he was placed there to "balance" classes. After my son told me he could not talk to any of the students because they only talked to each other in Spanish, I took him out of Alcott. The secretaries were very rude when I left. They were so petty. They took out the class photo from the school pictures, leaving just the individual photos. I did not say anything because I figured it was so immature that it was beneath me to say anything. I was never rude or anything. I simply wanted my son properly placed in classes that met his needs.

Alcott Elementary is a great school for children to learn and thrive. Alcott focuses on academics and art enrichment for their students, allowing them to learn and be creative. The administration and teachers have the students best interest as their first priority and I wouldn't have my children attend any other school in the area.

Academically the school is great. My kids are excited to learn more everyday. The staff is great with the kids. The availability of music is good, Art, I think there is not enough. The principle wants more structural time for the kids. Learning is more important she says. As for sports and extracurricular activities, not enough. We only have our physical education time, no teams for the kids, parents need to get more involved to help these kids to be interested in sports. The teachers are the begining of their students futures. The parents are with them for the rest of their lives and having my children going there for so long I have volunteered numerous times in and out of the classrooms, there is not enough parent involvment. Parents need to stop complaining about staff and stuff and volunteer more often to see what is going on.

The only rating I will give Alcott is lousy. I am glad my children are not there anymore. Jeanne Samuel

I have been very impressed by the quality of ALL of the teachers at Alcott. My son has had wonderful teachers who remember that he is an individual and a child, and have been willing to take time out of their schedule to meet with me or talk on the phone. I have always felt welcome in the classroom, and enjoy the opportunity to help out. I don't know the principal well, but she seems very motivated to make Alcott a great school. Parents are very active in the school, and the foundation makes it possible for students to go on field trips and have enrichment materials. I just wish the music program was available for the younger kids.

Alcott has a very active PTA which provides alot of programs for the students. There is no art. Music is only offered starting in 4th grade with the violin, other instruments are offered beginning in 5th. There are no sports programs.

Both of my children attended Alcott. The education they are and have gotten is excellent. There are many caring, talented teachers working at this location. I have not had the same positive experience with the principal. She is difficult to talk to and has not ever responded to my concerns. Additionally, there is a feeling that unless you are a parent that spends alot of time at the school your voice will not be heard by that administration. Again, fortunately, the interested, caring and talented teachers make up for the apparent lack of leadership.

1987- 1st child began attending (k-6). Currently enrolled, we have a 2nd & 5th g. Principal- professional, protective, serious, unintimidated, excellent, high expectations (has 'always' replied promptly 2 r e-mail). Teachers- a+ Janice Young, Sara Blinco, Miss Vickie, Joy Schuh, Barbara Pendergast, Mrs. Kincaid, Leslie Robison, Mrs. Richie & Mrs. Hussey (computer parent/teacher communication skills needed by some). Activities- r oldest is enjoying chess & violin (availablity of arts 4 primaries needed!). Parents- needed: 1. More help & support by all! 2. Give principal & faculty fair chance 2 perform their duties (be aware of 'chain of command'). 3. Pm board meets need offered 4 poss attendance of fulltime working parents/teachers. 4. Warmer, friendlier communication between all parents. Safety/discipline- proficient & acceptable 4 a public school. *Note- had neg experience w/ another local elementary school & Alcott is 'superior' by comparison.

While I was reviewing this information the 'Average Class Size' seemed to have had the numbers tweaked in the K-3 category. Now I am aware of how an average statistical score is generated. But as a parent of a 3rd grader from that school and year of 2002-2003. Her third grade class size was 30 - 32 students. As were all the third grade classes increased to 30+ students because they were given the option to do so without repercussions. But if an average person researching the school for their children would not have the accurate picture regarding this issue.

My daughter has attended Alcott since kindergarten & now is in 5th grade. The only year she enjoyed & excelled in school was 2nd grade. Her 2nd grade teacher was her favorite & he seemed to know how to give the children a desire to learn. The following years have not been as beneficial to my daughter & her self esteem has been squelched by each teacher. My daughter tests well, but complaints by the teachers each year of my daughter failing in class has caused me alarm. The principal is not helpful; in fact, she usually isn t available to meet with me.

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.
