To the parent said about your daughter did not like the students at Chaboya. I also want to tell a little about my two sons transfer last year. Both of them were in the same situation as yours. I know sometime it is kind of sad to be treated that way, but put in a more positive way, like my son, he said he has more time to think about his future....what he want to be...what is he good at to make his future more happy and successful. For this year, my younger son is eight grade and he like it alots more than last year...more friends, more familiar with teach, more familiar around the campus. Don't give up, give her more support and positive feedback.

Chaboya Middle School has long been noted for its outstanding music program and extracurricular activities, however, there is a discipline issue involved. Many of the students need some counseling. My daughter started the 8th grade last year as a new student, and she came home crying. She stated that the teachers were fine, and the curriculum was also fine, but however she did not make any new friends, and everyone seemed to ignore her. She was forced to eat lunch alone.

Chaboya is surely a safe enviroment and great atmosphere, but the staff do not correctly handle disipline problems at all. This school needs more honor and advanced classes for those students who excel in subjects more so than others. However, Chaboya Middle School does offer a great music program and a wide variety of student electives.

Chaboya Middle School has a great reputation in the Evergreen District. I highly recommend this school to all parents. All three (3) of my children attended this school and are now in great private middle schools and colleges. The teachers have an excellent and creative way to get parents and students interested in the work. Parent involvement is also high. I am more than happy my children attended Chaboya Middle School, home of the Colts.

This is one of the best middle schools I have ever seen. Parents are involved with this school which is excellent. They have an outstanding music program which has won many 1st place awards in competitions. Also, their sports program is planned in a way that an individual can participate in each during the school year. This is school is the best and I am so happy that my child goes to Chaboya Middle School, home of the colts.

My son has joined in 7th grade and so far I am happy with teachers. I wish they will have more honours classes and advance math and geometry.

This is a great school, I've had 2 of my kids gone to this school and they've turned out great. The teachers are very hands on and know their area of expertise, I am preparing to my final child of age 11 this year and then 12 next year to come there. Parents I highly recommend this school.

Very good academic programs. Parents are kept informed with weekly newsletter and homework hotline. Some teachers uses e-mail to inform parents of significant projects that may need parent's attention. School activites are organized and safe.

The school needs a new approach in dealing with discipline and underperforming teachers. Parents need to be proactive to make sure their children get the education they are entitled to.

My child attended Chaboya last year (7th grade) and it was a very positive experience. He has made significant progress in reading, from grade level 4.6 to 9 in 1 year. He seems to enjoy this school and looks forward to going each day.

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.
