My Kindergartener attends John Reed. They seem to have alot of school activities and there is alot of availability for parent involvement. The school overall I like. My one issue is that due to the fact that I feel they are a bit cliqish. We shall see how things progress over the last 3 months of school, I'm hoping my opinion of John Reed improves instead of declines.

I am a mother of 5 children and my youngest 2 children have attended John Reed School. I have found from my personal experience this school to be the perfect setting for my children. The teachers at this school are wonderful. They truly care about the childrens best interest. We have a parent Teacher invovement group that puts on monthly family fun nights wich are Free events to take your children to and enjoy either a movie and popcorn in the Gym, or a craft night making crafts with your child, or even a dancing through the decades dance. I wouldn't pick another school for my children. The school offers second step training in all grades to help the children learn about their own feelings as well as how to deal with their peers in a constuctive empathetic way. Thank you John Reed teachers for always giving your all. Sincerly, Julie Neilsen

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.
