The King Chavez Primary is a great school to send your kids to. I have a 1st grader and a second grader at the school and I enjoy all the attention they get from both teachers. I volenteer as much time as I can and enjoy spending time at the school. Truly a school that shines in this community.

I am a parent of a 2nd grader at King Chavez and I Love this school. Teachers and Staff are always available to speak to you. The campus is clean and full of murals. 2008-2009 it received the California Distinguished School Award. I feel proud that my daughter is a student at King Chavez!

Good school, but has lacked discipline for years. This has brought scores down. Campus has been unclean for years! Front office staff is nice but over all the campus looks terrible

There is no parent involvment at this school. The administration cares more about paper work than they do the children. If you have a choice avoid this school.

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.
