My daughter attended Correia last year, and is excited to be attending next year for 8th grade. Teachers are great, and happy to spend time talking with you about your child and his/her progress. Awesome librarian, and the library is 1st rate. Full-time nurse on staff (elementaries have a nurse for a few hours per week). Good parental involvement, as 12-13 is a difficult age and it helps to have parents on campus before/after school and at lunchtime. Caring and attentive counseling staff. Correia is pretty much a continuation of the great programs offered at Dana. Correia gets a 'bad rap' - mostly from the rumor-mill of parents who have never had a child attend there. Maybe many years ago Correia was not good, but the Correia staff has really stepped up to make Correia into a terrific school. Parents of future 7th/8th graders: Do not be afraid of Correia!

I had really good friends here...Some of the teachers were ok....Lots of getting into trouble but a lot of discipline too.

My son recently graduated from Correia. I was not very happy with the total learning experience at this school. The advanced students had the same teachers for both seventh and eight grade in math and history. The was a definate problem with communication between the teachers and many students. The music program was strong, but I understand this has changed. I would not suggust this school.

I think they have a wonderful home cooking program. Its great that at least one school in this district still teaches students the basics they need to know to survive in the 21st century such as how to make a 'pizza bagel'.

Do not let the exterior fool you, it is a wonderful school, with few students who get one of one interaction. the teachers are great

My student had good times in this school. She learned a lot from most of her teachers but some were not as great. There was not a good sport program but she had a good english and PE class. The counselors were great and very helpful.

Although the teachers and extracurricular programs at Correia seem solid, the school administration tends to be nonresponsive and, at times, even surly when responding to parent inquiries. Attendance is not monitored closely enough and students who bully others are not disciplined appropriately for their actions. The dress code policy is so weak it is rendered ineffective. Despite these drawbacks, however, Correia teachers are enthusiastic and genuinely seem to care about the students and their academic progress. The parent teacher association also seems to be growing stronger as time goes on, a definite asset for the school.

Correia is a great school. Theres a lot of dicipline which helps us become better students. The teachers are great and extremly helpful. The councelors are always there when you need them and the prinicpal/vice principals do their job very well and take it very seriosly, which is a good thing. As a student I think Correia is a great school, but not as great if we had Miss Martinez as one of teachers. We miss you!

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.
