um when is the first day of school for 2013-2014 because I'm going to this school and am new.


Posted August 11, 2011

We've completed two years at Davis and couldn't be happier. After teaching for many years in another state, I was skeptical about starting my child in a new school. I have been so impressed with the school's curriculum, the teachers' dedication, and the leadership of the school. Davis celebrates its diversity, and they teach each child well. I am thankful that the faculty of Davis sees my child as a precious work in progress, and each of the teachers takes his/her investment in my child seriously.

This is the first year that my son attends this school. The Principal is very friendly and down to earth kind of person. My son's teacher is also excellent, and she cares for the students. The school environment is great, and the school focuses on the behavior of the students. Least but not last, the school does not require any dress code.

Windmill Springs has a wonderful community with a great principle, who likes to participate in school activities. Although I would like some more extracurricular activities. My son has been begging to play football with other schools in the district.

Windmill Springs School has a wonderful learning environment in which students learn to love learning. Windmill is a kindergarten through eighth grade school where teachers go by their first names, there are no bells or whistles, and teachers teach with both multiple intelligences ad the developmental nature of childhood in mind. Students play an active role in governing their own classroom and in designing appropriate consequences for those times when rules are broken. Teachers give students their home phone numbers and e-mail addresses. This school is one large family in which everyone matters equally.

well Im a student at windmill and I love it there and since we dont have many classes and are in the same class as the 7th graders we get to know them better. Bill our principal says good morning to everyone everyday and all of the teachers are fantastic. I would really really recomend this school for those parents that are looking for schools for there kids and we get to teach classes sometimes like the 7th and 8th grade classes got to teach poetry so overall this school is great. The teachers are great and if you send your kid here you wont regret it because it is a fantastic school and the system is great (k-8) (some classes combined). The only thing I would change is the school lunch but hey no school lunch really tastes all that good! current windmill springs student ( 8th grade class of `06)

I feel the education programs are challenging and interesting to grade level. I enrolled my daughter into this school because of the year round track schedule and extra curricular activities. The after school activities were all cancelled this year and the year round scheule will be terminated as well in June. I believe there is a strong presence of parents from this school especially at the district board meetings.

This school is okay. I had my son here for one year and pulled him out right after the school year ended! The principal is great! So are the teachers. The vice principal however likes to get in everyones business. The staff is okay but the supervisors at lunch are horrible. They treat the children with zero respect! I would not recommend this school to anyone.

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.
