My daughter has been attending this school for a year and will not be returning. The whole staff is very rude to the students and run the school very unsuccessfully. Our teacher is rarly there and sometimes brings her own child to class. My daughter attends transitional kindergarden. They are the youngest class and are often the last obes left on the plaground after the bell rings. There is absolutly no security on campus. Anyone can walk through the open front or through the unlicked back gate. The young kids are sent to and from the office with no adult and it is not a great neighborhood. This school caters to bon-enlsh speaking families and if you arent one if them your child comes last in class. Several tines the children have been aloud to play outside in the pouring rain. They usually have only one yard duty during lunch hour. When I have attended lunch hour I witness about 60-70 students per one adult. The nurse is not qualifyed to deal with children or practice medicine in general. I have personally walked several students to the nurse and she greets them with annoyance befire she even know their name.

I m pretty happy with this school. My son attends it and the teachers are pretty good at keeping them on their toes every day. The only thing I do wish they worked on a little better is the lunch time and recess. They need more yard duties and the yard duties she be more involved with the kids as well as helpful. There was an incident were a kindergartner came up to a yard duty that was talking to me at the time and asked if she could help him and tie his shoes, the yard duty refused and I ended up doing it myself. She looked at me and said, Well I do this every day and my hands get super cold. Hello! That s what you get paid to do!

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.

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.
