The after school program of Think Together is the best and I like the fact that this school has low ratio of teacher and students. They also offer a good enrichment program but I have no idea what my kid is learning in school. I emailed asking the teacher about the schedule but I never got the reply. The school seems to care about fun and sport for kids more than academy. They really lack of communicating between teacher and parent. I wish the school communicate with parents better and offer more academic challenges for all grades.

I have volunteer every day at this wonderful school. The Teachers and the Staff go above and beyond the call of duty. My children will continue to go to this school until it is time to move on. I am very proud to be a Bachrodt Eagle Parent! I am happy with my children acceleration in improvement.

We have been a part of the Bachrodt community for the past 5 years, and our youngest will start Kinder next year, so we are looking forward to 6 more! My children are enrolled in the bilingual immersion program, and it is amazing how quickly and confidently they have learned a new language. The after school enrichment classes are wonderful, and all the PTA sponsored Family Events are fun and we love being involved in our school!

Our family began this education journey the first year the Charter was implemented at Bachrodt, 2008-2009. We have watched the school grow, improve and become an amazing community of families, staff and support that maintains focus on students' best interests. As a parent, I am encouraged by the support and attention students receive. As an educator, I am thrilled with the practices and curriculum I see in the classrooms. As a family, we treasure the openness to new ideas and tough questions. My youngest will graduate from Bachrodt Charter Academy (BCA) in June 2015. We will be very sad to move on but we are confident that the kids will be well prepared for the next step in their education journey. If you have questions about the programs or activities at Bachrodt, the PTA always welcomes communication. Post to the BCA PTA facebook page anytime for more information.

This school is the hidden gem of SJUSD. Our son attends Bachrodt in the two-way bilingual immersion program and we are so thrilled to be at this school. The program they have for students is nothing short of amazing. Within a month, he was coming home and speaking Spanish to us (we are an English speaking household). It's incredible. In addition to the great classroom academics, the school has a wonderful after school enrichment program run by an active and energetic PTA. In the enrichment classes, my son has been able to take art, choir, science and dance classes. He loves them all. While the school is not perfect, it gets better every day and parents are very much empowered to make drive change and enhancements. The staff is supportive and dedicated. It is a great community and we are looking forward to being a pat of the Bachrodt family as all of our children work their way through 5th grade.

Bachrodt Charter Academy is truly a special place. My 3 daughters are in the Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program and I am constantly amazed by the phenomenal education they are getting. The teachers are top notch and the staff is wonderful. There is a true sense of community at the school - it is a welcoming place for students and families. It is easy to volunteer on many levels and be involved in your child's education. I could go on and on about how great the school is, but the things that sums it up for me is that my girls LOVE going to school each and every day. I think that speaks for itself!

Bachrodt is awesome! Our oldest son is in the Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program and he's thriving--academically and socially. The principal, teachers, and support staff demonstrate their enthusiasm and creativity daily. At Bachrodt there is a sense of school spirit, a real respect for diversity, and we're constantly building a college-going culture. One of the things I like most is the PTA-organized menu of after-school enrichment classes, i.e. science, robotics, cooking, art, choir, hip hop, folkloric dance, etc. This public school is rockin' and we're glad to be part of it! NOTE: The current principal of Bachrodt is Mr. Rigoberto Palacios. He's been there for a couple of years. He's smart, positive and highly esteemed among the parents and teachers. The kids also love him!

I have twin sons in the 1st grade two-way immersion program at Bachrodt. Their first full year was 2012-13 kindergarten. We commute to have the opportunity of the bilingual program Bachrodt offers. I have never been so appreciative of an opportunity or experience than what my children are receiving from the faculty and staff at Bachrodt Elementary. The teaching staff are not only nurturing, but some of the most brilliant, and talented teachers I've met in my life. The principal has eyes and ears with his physical presence on campus, allowing easy access to his time for questions or needs from any of the students, parents or staff. My children are not only getting a superior academic education, they being prepared to function in a global market as well. Bachrodt is more than a school, it's our family.

My son is entering the 3rd grade at Bachrodt and is absolutely excelling at this school. Every teacher we've had has been excellent and all are highly educated (some with multiple graduate degrees). The school is welcoming, warm, and my son has loved every class he's been in. The students are always polite when we are on the playground before school and overall it's a positive atmosphere. My son went through 2 years of speech therapy and completed his IEP requirements so no longer needs the therapy (another plus)! Overall we've been very happy at Bachrodt. Many parents get caught up in test scores and there's just so much more to the school picture than that. I should add that the current principal is outstanding and he's been at Bachrodt since the 2011-12 school year so please don't be deterred by the negative comments about the former principal, she's no longer there.

I have two children with special needs. One attended the special day class for two years, and transitioned to regular classes this past year. It has been rocky at time, but the staff has worked with my son and his therapists to develop a better experience for him. My daughter also has some learning challenges, and the school put together a plan with the RSP teacher that has really helped her to be successful. Most of the teachers are great, but there are some that are perplexing; one told me that she would have quit teaching if my kid hadn't gotten an aide from the school district. Their "All Stars" After school program is free. It is, however, COMPLETELY inappropriate for special needs kids, and they make absolutely no effort at all to make accommodations. The other on-campus daycare, CDC, has no training with special needs kids, but they make an effort , and have been helpful. This baffles me because Bachrodt is a special day feeder school! The third daycare on site is excellent, but is a Spanish language immersion daycare. I would give an even better score if there were special needs after school care.

The problem here is the principal, not the teachers. The principal walks around like she has better things to do than be at the school. She does not carry herself very professional. I think the school would be better off with someone who really cares about the success of the students and the school.

The 2009-2010 school year was my son's first time attending school as a kindergartner. I am beyond pleased with the level of devotion this school puts out towards it's students. My son had the wonderful and patient Miss Blair.Miss Blair and a partnering kindergarten teacher went above and beyond with assisting my son with some of his academic troubles. They provided both after school and Saturday small group tutoring. With a smaller group my son flourished academically. My family and I will be forever thankful for all of their hard work and dedication. They truly made an impact and should be proud:). Another outstanding thing about Bachrodt is that they showcase the importance of college all throughout the school year. My son loved being able to wear different college shirts every Friday (such a great weekly perk for the kids). We can't wait for 1st grade!

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.
