Theodore Judah Elementary School has endured many difficulties in the past decade that my children have been attending. The school's students, parents, teachers and staff, have come together as a community to not only overcome these difficutlies, but also improve its student scores and the environment as a whole. The school is constantly improving academically, socially, and in its facilities. The one element that stands out for me is the parental involvement that we have at our school. Their positive, can do attitude reinforce, and sometimes enhance, the cirriculum that the teachers and staff present to our children. This is truly a community school, that has excelled because of its teachers, staff, parents, and the children of this community.

Theodore Judah is a true community school, with much needed enrichment programs supported directly through community and parent volunteerisim, monetary support and in-kind donations. It's also a small community where teachers, parents, and students are responsive to and supportive of one another. It's reassuring to be on campus where the principal, teachers, staff, other parents, and other students know my children by name and my child knows them.

I have loved this school since I was a student here in the 60's. This has always been a community of very supportive parents and teachers. Most of the staff have been here for 13 or more years. Many of us have graduate degrees and all of us have CLAD or BCLAD certification. We all love our school, the community and our students. Theodore Judah is the best elementary school anywhere, the teachers teach the required curriculum with passion, and the parents through the PTA are very involved in our school with great art, science, physical education,music and garden programs...Its a great place!

Theodore Judah Elementary is a (K-6) neighborhood school located in East Sacramento, nearby McKinley Park. The school s population is about 316 students. We integrate music, art, and science with regular curriculum. We offer after school enrichment classes for a fee. We have START (an after school program) on campus which the city provides at no cost from 2pm to 6pm. They offer one-hour homework study time, teach academic subject matter and organize play activities. Theodore Judah has an outstanding dedicated teaching staff and classified staff, even our custodians are involved. We have a very active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) that put out an excellent Harvest Festival in Oct, at least two Movie Night for the whole neighborhood, Family Dance Night, Science Night, Winter Fest, Jog-A-thon, and in the spring a wonderful Art & Music Festival. Parents are very active and you ll find many of them on campus being docents to the garden or art program. We have Parent Room who are parent assigned to each classroom to help the teacher and the principal communicate to all the parents. The parent beautified the campus and are continues find ways to my our little school the best. Our 2009 API scores are 863 a growth of 29 points! We are doing great! Oh, I almost forgot, we also have a GATE program for the gifted children from 4th to 6th grade and preschool. I have a 4th grader and we love our school. It s the best!

It is a true neighborhood school! The art, music, science and garden programs truly enrich my son's learning experience. He is thriving!

My son is performing great and is loving school. Ms. Daswon is phenominal, detailed and dedicated to seeing children excel in kinder so that they can continue success in first grade and beyond. The PTA is awesome and they works overtime to put on plays that the kids help produce and perform in, there is an onsite garden, they also bring in a music and art instructor to expose the children to fine arts. There are two afterschool onsite daycare programs and even the Mad Science program is available. With the recent budget cuts and changes to Title I requirements the funding has dropped dramatically and yet parents work side by side with the principle, teacher and school staff who have a genuine interest in seeing kids achieve success in school; Overall Theodore Judah provides a quaility curriculum that in inclusive of extracuricular activities (such as movie night, harvest festivals, auctions, plays, spring art festivals, dinners, etc.)that most public school just don't or can't provide in the current times.

The parents and families are involved and helpful in providing extra activities, raising money and building community. I think the art, gardening and music programs are great for my students.

This school is absolutely wonderful. We've had one child complete K-6 who still feels so connected to the school. We have another child attending who is thriving and filled with school pride. The PTA and the awesome partent participation have brought on and supplemented several wonderful enrichment programs. Truly a great neighborhood school!

I love the fact that my son has an awesome teacher Mrs. Wilson. My son is in Special Ed and his teacher is so patient with her students. She treats each and everyone of her students with respect and continues to help them to strive to do better. Just because theses students have a different way learning. She has never once made my son or the other students feel like they could not do what the rest of there peers could do. Since my son has been going to Theodore Judah he continues to amaze me on how well he is progressing and that is all I want for my kids to know they can do it. With teachers like Mrs. Wilson I know my kids can be anything they put there minds to it. She is a sweet, loving, patient, and humble person and my family is blessed to have her as a teacher.

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.

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.
