This school has not been the same since the former principal retired a few years ago. Things aren't very organized and parents always hear things last minute. I have 2 children who graduated from there, and one at the school now, and I can see the difference.

I loved this school! I graduated in 2011 and Ms.Dold was a great principal. Everyone there supported me and although our school did not have much of a budget, the teachers and principals somehow made it work. It was the best 6 years I could ask for.

Both of my children have attended this school some 15-18 years apart. This school is incredible, the principal Mrs. Dold is the very best in a leader. Both of my children are different one reads well and one struggles. This school went out their way to help my children. They are the best!

This school offers a lot of extra support in reading and writing. The only school with a college bound vision for the children. To have a school that shows and tells children and parents that college is in their reach, to me is a great and I just love this school.

It's a strongly growing 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.
