Awesome...my son couldnt be at a better school. Teachers really care about their students. Especially Principal Zanzot she awesome and really gets to know her students. Can't wait for my other children to attend.

My student had the BEST second grade teacher last year. Mrs. Rapp was amazing at reaching all of the students in her classroom, giving them pride not only in their school, and classroom but in themselves. If there was ever an issue with behavior/bullying Mrs. Rapp nipped it in the bud. I was saddened to find out she move out of state and won't be back to teach my my daughter who is in first grade now.

WOW....my children have been attending this school for 4 years and I was just emailed a letter that threatened to pull my children from this school(they are on intradistrict transfer) because they were sick at the start of last year!! First of all I pay the taxes, it is the taxpayers that keep the schools open...second of all its funny every day I get a phone call asking to support the school. If this school does not want my children there I will be more than happy to send them to a charter school where they will learn more anyway..but do not threaten me because I did not send my children to school sick, instead you need to thank me!!!!

Kammann is an excellent school for students to attend. I do wish their were no buget cuts but there is just no money. The teachers do the best they can do with what they have.

I feel the teachers at Kammann really do care about their students. I wish there was more parent involvement, though.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 12, 2008

The only problem about Kamman is that there is no parent involvement. There are a couple of core people throwing their hearts into helping not only their children but your as well make this school better. The money problems dont come from the school itself, it comes from the government and how much they cut. I am very happy with the school and where it has gone in the pas

Availability of art and music is pathetic, there is none, well none worth talking about. The children are not disciplined properly.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
