I have 2 daughter's that go to the school and they love it we come form a different school district and the is the second school that we have been to and this is the one school that my kids really love. We got a great welcome when we first enrolled a tour around the school. My kids love going to school everyday. The after school program is great: The teachers at Riley are just great they take the time to help there students to get the highest test scores that they can by offering touring when off track as well as after school.

Riley Elementary School was a fantastic experience for my two sons. The staff was polite, enthusiastic and eager to help my children learn. The principal is a bright beacon of hope in a world filled with darkness. His loyalty, experience, kindness and fortitude should be an example to all. His morale fortitude inspires and helps create a atmoshere of learning. If my two sons are half the men he is I will be a greatful father.

the teachers want the best for their students but are hindered by poor leadership with a hidden agenda. The current administration at Riley needs an overhaul for teachers and students to reach their full potential!

Riley Elementary School has the most dedicated group of teachers and staff. They have excellent programs that assist students in excelling to their maximum potential such as the MODEL program, Alternative Core, Before/After School tutoring, before/after school CAPS program, etc. The staff members at Riley School are the most dedicated group of people whose sole purpose is to educate your child and to help him/her succeed and become model citizens of the community.

I had observed a combined 4th and 5th grade Bilingual Class and they are the most fantastic well behaved kids that I ever seen. Always attentive and calm and respectful. Very interested and diligent learners. Their Teacher Mrs. P is very patient, the principal makes sure everyone is safe & quite hard working.

Riley Elementary School has had some amazing teachers! My son loved his second grade teacher, she was always keeping the parents involved and she really got through to my son. ALl in all my children got a great education! The current Principal is not a great roll model, but the teachers are really working hard!

I am a new parent to San Bernardino School District. From day 1 in the enrollment process was difficult. The process has been a struggle. I believe parents need to get more involved. The school has poor teacher/parent activities.

Urban inner city school with a high number of second language learners. School is located in a low socioeconomic area. The school suffers from poor attendence, and behavior/discipline problems on the part of the students.

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.
