I see that the last review given to this school was in 2011, I have to say that my experience with the staff and the school in general has been great here. My son is in Mrs Millers kindergrten class and I cant say enough good things about her and everyone else I have encountered at the school. I guess these reviews are given some consideration given that in the few months that my son has been there I have yet to see any graffiti and I cant count how many times ive seen both principles greet students and parents upon their arrival. I was very hesitent about the area but decided to give it a try and I must admit that I am very pleased.

I agree with the las two comments Hunt is a good school but could use some improvements I went to hunt from k-5 grade and I don't have anything bad to say the teachers are good at what they do Mr. Slacks, Mrs O'conner, Mrs Hawks & Mrs. moore were my teachers while I attended but my sister had some good teachers to I am now 22 years of age and I still visit my teachers from time to time


Posted August 19, 2008

i recently moved to this area my daughter attends Hunt and i was very dissapointed in the whole system from the principal to the safety i have seen the principal maybe 3 times because hes never out of his office and not once have i seen him say hello to any of the parents or staff. its just very heart breaking knowing that nobody goes the extra mile to make it better.

The kids and many of the teachers at this school are great. However, this school has many problems. Such problems are its lack of control over who can be on the campus and graffiti problem which is not cleaned up in a timely manner. This school needs to see dramatic changes taken into action.

Overall quality is very poor. Although there are two areas that excel: 1)In the 20+ yrs I've been involved with Hunt Elementary (my 2 daughters,niece and nephew all attended) there has been 'One' thing that hasn't and that is that their are Several Exceptional 'Teachers' that have Exceptional Teaching Skills(ex. Mr. Slack) and that is why I allowed my two daughters to attend. The other Positives that should be recognized are the Office Staff and the 'Excellent' Music Teacher( Mr. Londo). The school as a whole has 'promise' if 'Improvements' where to be made. Some 'improvements ' that are in urgent need are: the Security, Safety, Parking, Cafetaria, Bathrooms(soap,towels), Graffeti, lack of Team Sports and Tutoring.

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.
