Ida Price is a pretty nice charter school in the Cambrian School District. Good atmosphere when compared to most middle schools, and it is safe. Only problem is some teachers here are kinda meh. Other than a COUPLE of teachers, the school itself is pretty good, but if your student is out of district, you shouldn't send them here even though its charter, because pretty much every kid here goes to Branham or Leigh High School and those are not charter, so the student may not get into the highschool that all of their friends are going too.

Mixed reviews on the teachers my child has had so far in 6th grade. The core teacher doesn't use punctuation or spell check in emails and newsletters. There does not appear to be any effort to even out homework. One day there will be 4 assignments from the same teacher due the next day and the following day there will be one assignment. On the bright side the new principal appears to be good at making an effort to work with parents. Time will tell whether this score improves.

My daughter was one of those 60 Valedictorians referenced in a previous review. I know about 20 of them from my daughter's elementary school where i volunteered in the classroom. I can vouch that those kids are indeed "A" students, even "gifted" kids. Price doesn't make it easy for kids to get A's as my daughter stayed up many nights until midnight doing homework . What Price does is give opportunities for kids to retake the quizzes/tests so that they relearn the material and demonstrate mastery of it again. This practice is very common and even in high school. In the three years there, my daughter only took maybe 3-4 retests.... Having said that, the school does have challenges as well. Yes, there are teachers who could be better, the administration could be more efficient but given the financial state of education, I'm sympathetic. Also, the role of schools has evolved beyond just teaching our kids but also being responsible for discipline, parenting even, and a host of other things I cannot even begin to understand. The bottom line for me: parents/students own their education and the school should provide resources to do so and Price did just that for us.

Ida Price is a bad choice for your student. They give certain students benefits. It took one of my teachers 10 weeks to put an assignment in the grade book. Most teachers are lazy. Don't care about students just a paycheck. They also discourage accelerated learning by having a maximum of 30 kids in their advanced/honors classes. On top of that they make it extremely easy to get A's. They gave 60+ kids the "valedictorian" award which means they have gotten All A's in every class. I think a Valedictorian is an award given to a student who has showed distinguishable talents over the rest of the grade. Not 1/6 of the class. If I were you I would send your kid to a private school or to another district.

I have and i am attending Ida Price Middle, i am returning as an eigth grade student. As many have dealt with econmy has changed and has effected many families including mine. Eventually we ran out of money to send me to private school, this was my fist time in public school in the sixth grade, i was obviously scared. Price was very welcoming, and had wonderful campus and staff. After the first week or two i found friendships that will last a lifetime. In my years at Price they have taken bullying very seriously, and they do not tolerate it. Thank God. Overall Price is a very wonderfull school, i am looking forward to a great new year in the 2013-2014 school year!

After hearing and reading the glowing reviews about Price, I was eager to have my child attend here. I was extremely disappointed, however once she started. Since day one (freshman orientation) I've seen disorganization and 'passing the buck' which I attribute to the ongoing inconsistencies followed by the school administrators and teachers. There are typos galore on the weekly newsletters that, while trivial, is ironic given the correspondence is from an educational institution. The teachers here are either hit or miss. My daughter had 2 excellent teachers who inspired her, but there were several who seemed to be there just for the pay. Homework assignment list tend to not be updated until one to two weeks later, so good luck if your child was sick and you need to see what homework was missed. Another irony, given they stressed turning in homework on time - no excuses. Also, one teacher here likes to bury his students with homework, often assigning 2-3 assignments per night. His rationale was to 'expose them to the what high school would be like' - in the 6th grade. I am relieved that my daughter survived her middle school years here. She can't wait to leave.

This school is very good. While there are some bad teachers, the eighth grade teachers are superb. The only complaint is strict rules and lots of fights happen


Posted January 8, 2011

Ida Price is the best place to go to school,I'm a student attending now in 8th grade and I'm sad when I'm not in school. I've had the time of my life at this school, great teachers, great education,great people. Yes, they do expect highly of their students,but i greatly appreciate it now that i look back at previous years. The school takes bullying very seriously and I've never been insulted,in a fight, or teased. The upside to this school is also that there is a 7 11 and starbucks down the street for students to go after school. By far if you are looking for a safe,great education,and awsome teachers Ida Price is where you should be.

I'm in 8th grader in Price and so far it is the best! I love most of my teachers and will miss them. I do agree, that in 8th grade, they do control most of our lives, but are preparing us all for high school. Why I rated it 4 out of 5 stars is probably because there is a bit of bullying in the school, and I won't be afraid to admit is that I have been bullied more than three times that year.

Wonderful school! I was amazed with the efficiency and responsiveness of the Principal and staff. Very good experience to start with the new school year.

Price is a wonderful school! Teachers and staff at Price do have high expectations for our kids--and isn't that what we want for them? Both of my children have gone through Cambrian schools (my oldest graduated last year and my youngest will be an 8th grader this year). The teachers are not only motivational and skilled, they are also compassionate and kind!

I have been extremely disappointed with Price. The administrators and teachers expect every sixth grader to enter the school as a self-motivated, mature, responsible eleven or twelve year old. They have ridiculously high expectations of every student from the moment they enter middle school. Why not just skip middle school then and go straight to high school? Children are not taught to learn from their academic or social 'mistakes;' mistakes are not tolerated here and are punished too severely. My child cannot wait to leave Price and move on to high school.

Great teachers, very involved with parents. They will keep you informed of all activities -what papers or grades your kids are bringing home for review, what projects they are working on, school activities- everythin! Something very valuable when kids enter teenage years and don't communicate with us parents too much.

If you have a top-notch student who is responsible and self-motivated, and/or who is involved in extracurricular activities, Ida Price can be a great school. I say 'can be' because it greatly depends on the teacher your child gets--some of them are fantastic, while others are utterly horrible. Academic expectations are high, and there is no tolerance for any sort of failings on the part of the students whatsoever, particularly by 8th grade. They fully expect 13-year-olds to be as responsible as adults. In my opinion, there is no acknowledgement that these students are human beings, not little robots who can be told what to do and expected to perform at 100% at all times. And no excuses! That said, the available extracurricular activities are extensive, and they do a lot of 'school spirit' work. If your child is a great student, and gets a good teacher, you'll be pleased here.

This is probably the best school in the South Bay. I've rarely seen such dedicated teachers willing to go the extra mile for all of their students. The climate at the school is exceptional, too. There doesn't seem to be the bad attitudes and slack discipline I've seen at other middle schools we've checked out. They do have very high expectations regarding behavior, learning and dress codes, which I think is the reason the students do so well. The teachers I have met are all very involved in their students' well-being and success. There is also very high parental involvement. I'm really thankful that despite the waiting list for charter students my daughter was able to get in.

Terrible school. No follow through with discipline. It does not matter if it's quality work or not. No accountability. It's very difficult for families like ours who try to teach their children responsibility for their actions. If I could move I would. Pick another district or go private.

I loved price, and I miss it dearly. Anyone who is thinking about sending their children here definatly should because they will have so much fun, gain amazing knowledge from the great teachers and move on to highschool with a lot of experience ad confidence.

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.
