The press conference held at Temple yesterday by the Superintendent was a slap in the face to all students who go to Temple and their parents. To say, as the superintendent did, that Temple students were rude and disrespectful and to say they didn't have the right to give their opinions at a board meeting proves that she has no respect for our children or their families!!

My older sister and I were students here and we both turn out pretty well.

I'm a student from this school and I think it's wonderful. All the teachers are kind and if you're failing, they send you to these great programs and help tutor you. Our principle had really high expectations(:

Some of the students are not honest in this school. Please let your children know to keep the valuable things ( cell phone, wallet) with them at all time. This school has lot of after school activities but very few students get involve. I strongly recommend parents to encourage their children to join .

I'm a student from Temple Intermediate, and to me, this is a fantastic school. When the students are failing classes, the assistant principal (currently) Ms. Rock made a program called Achievement Gap to discuss how to raise up their grades. Not only did she talk with the teachers, she also picked students to talk with. Anyways, I think this school is great (just not the principal!).

This school has many extra programs. Such as for the students falling behind and also students achieving ahead. The teachers have much experience and discipline and most important, the school has a nice organized office. When I came in, I was greeted in friendly matter and was very helpful in aswering questions. The most dissapointing part is lacking some supplies and also not enough involvement from parents.

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.
