Be careful if your child has an IEP. Above all, this school is on the No Child Left Behind improvement list for below level performance. Observing my son's class it's not hard to see how that is. It was run as an ANY child left behind, if your child has an IEP then get up to speed on your own or move out of the way. This teacher had little to no patience for any child that wasn't keeping up. Her class is run with a "keep up or get out" attitude, very disappointing to say the least.

I'm happy that my children are attending this school. The teachers are attentive and keep me informed of my children's progress. The staff, VP, and Principal are very nice and extremely helpful. The parental involvement at this school is great. Despite some of the budget challenges, this school continues to thrive.

This past year I stepped into the role of parent of a school aged child, after being I the role of teacher in different schools. I am very pleased with my child's first experience in an elementary setting and appreciate the time that principal took with me when I approached her with questions. As a teacher I appreciated my child's teacher and the principals presence, professionalism and concern for the students at the school. I'm glad that this is our school of residence.

I agree with the parent who wrote the Oct. 24th review of Lindbergh Schweitzer. The enrollment process was very unorganized. The office staff is rude and indifferent. I agree with her, they do need to become better organized and informed. Other parents in the neighborhood have shared with me that there is a bullying problem at this school. It has been going on for the last 3 years and nothing seems to be improving. My husband and I are now considering private school. now considering

This was our first experience with public schooling with our kindergartner. The registration process was pretty painful since we didn't know when where or how to register. The sf unified website says to look on your individual schools website and the Lindbergh Sweitzer website has absolutly no information on registering. We left several messages on the school message system and never received any calls back until one day in August when someone actually answered the phone. Turns out you can register a week or so before school begins or on the first day even. But being pro active parents we were distressed because none of this information is available Anywhere. Welcome to public schooling. I hope that this isn't a sign of things to come. The first day of school was very very chaotic and no one knew where to take their children, supposedly the teAchers were going to come get the kids but they never showed. We ended up walking the kids to the classroom, no introductions by the teacher or anything. It was very hard to just leave our child there with A complete stranger for us and ourc5 year old. They need. Better organization skills there for sure

My children have had some great great teachers. Mrs. Garon for Kindergarten is great, loving. Mr. Patton is awesome, just awesome!!! Mrs. Morgan is so sweet and attentive. Mrs. Hupp is a great teacher as well. Now, there are a few teachers that are...eh; but that's probably in all school's. Honestly I think one of the biggest problems if not the biggest at this school is the Principal and Vice principal.. The vice principal doesn't seem to be as bad but the principal is just awful. She is very passive and almost seems to protect the "bully's" or "problem children". She is rude and disconnected when parents have a concern. We have direct experience with her and it was very very frustrating to say the least. Honestly, in hindsight we should have gone to the district as she did not help our child, the problem child or the other students by her apathetic or whatever you would call it approach. The parent involvement is wonderful and is the reason along with the teachers that this school is doing ok, but the principal's leadership or lack therof is making this school suffer greatly. It would be in the school's best interest for her to be replaced.

Good school that integrates special needs students with the regular classes well. We have had a nice 7 years at this school. It's too bad there is no natural-fit junior school to feed into from here. Many leave here after grade 5 due to local middle schools starting at grade 6 and also the problems with the grade 6 staff or at least one classroom where the teachers acts like the "queen bee" of the school.

My son attends Mrs. Garon's kindergarten class, and he loves it! Mrs. Garon is a wonderful, caring teacher who truly understands children. I wish there were more teachers like her!

I really do like the school. During 1st grade, we had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Torres. She was awesome, always had something positive to say. However, we were not so lucky last year in 2nd grade, I did not care for the teacher. She did not have the qualities I would expect a teacher to have. She was not warm, caring, positive nor supportive. I know at least one other parent felt the same way.

I can highly recommend Mrs. Norman for 3rd and Mrs. Morgan for 4th. My son did really well under both of those teachers.

I have daughters in 1st and 4th grade and we have loved every teacher they've had! I feel that the teaching staff is above average at this school. They're very available to parents and quick to update you. Also, there is a new principal and vice principal as of the September '08 new school year. They are both VERY involved and enthusiastic about their new posts. Both my girls love going to school and as a result have excelled. I highly recommend Lindbergh-Schweitzer Elementary.

I Love my Childs teacher. She is amazing!!! But with the Principal I feel like there are very serious disciplinarian problems. Or lack there of. I just wonder and am very frightened that it's going to take one of our children getting hurt to make her realize that she needs to be alot more strict with bullying and threats made on the playground. And she also needs to enforce the no tolerance!!!!! policy.

This is our neighborhood school. And we for the most part love it. Our kids are happy, the teachers and staff are wonderful. My biggest concern is the way that bullying is being handled at the school. The principle takes a passive approach with situations that are serious. I'm seeing repeat offenses without appropriate consequences.

We have two children who are now attending Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary School. My daughter is now in a fourth grade Cluster class taught by Mrs. Morgan, each day she looks forward to going to school not just for the daily challenges for which they are assigned but for the little extras that Mrs. Morgan adds daily to enhance her students. Cup Stacking, the Chess Club and the Einstein Club, Mrs. Morgan gives my daughter more than just the required Three R s . My son was diagnosed with several learning disabilities while Kindergarten. With guidance from the principle, his teachers, the speech specialist and the wonderful Mr. Dan who worked with him to develop his fine and major motor skills, along with developing an IEP, he will reach his grade s learning level. This past March he was identified for the Gifted and Talented Education Cluster program. This was only able to be achieved due to the dedication of his teachers Mrs. Coulter and Mr. Patton who we will always be grateful for along with the entire group of specialist and the staff of Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary School. We thank you.

My four year old daughter is in the autism class. I adore her teachers, and they equally adore her. At least for my daughter this is a great school. She previously went to ranch elementary, I prefer lindbergh schweitzer. It's a very kind and caring staff.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
