Don Callejon has a wonderful program to support high performance in education. I do feel that the school will need to expand in years to come to accomodate the growth in our area. K - 8 needs more resources than an elementary and jr. high seperated.

This school is amazing. Great teachers, great food, safe area. And they have palm trees everywhere and fresh air. You could hardly see any litter on the ground, thanks to the students and the janitors. And there is high quality materials and awesome education. The teachers are so kind. And you won't have a hard time making friends.If you're in middle school it will be very easy to get straight A's. The first day you go there, you probably don't want to leave!

This is a new school with good facilities, great classrooms and with good community support. But it is not good as far as acadamics goes. I completely agree with the other parent's remark saying the standards and teaching level is not comparable among the classes of same grade level. The kids who are advanced is not challenged enough. I wonder many times, what this school is missing to get a high API score. We are currently planning to move my kid from this school since he is not learning much.

Santa Clara Unfied School District's more modern and newest school, Don Callejon school has not met my expectations. I am a parent of a 1st grader who has completed a full year at this school. It has been my experience that the curriculum standards are not held up evenly across all classrooms of a particular grade. Therefore, some students tend to be exposed to more topics while others are not. The results, therefore, are as can expected. Compared to public schools from Illinois, where my child studied for a full year in Kindergarten, I am highly disappointed in the low academic standards of California schools in general.

I was hoping for so much better. I am a second year student, and I just finished the second year of Don Callejon as a 7th Grader, and Moving onto 8th. I am really disappointing wtih the schools 'attitude' toward the Middle School. Always complaing that we are careless and misbehaving... This is typical. And always prasing the Elementary. In my opinion Middle School isn't getting much benefits compared to other schools such as Peterson, Cabrillo, and Buchser. Hopefully the 3rd Year will be improved.

Overall, Don Callejon is a wonderful school. The part that just doesn't work for me is that the George Mayne kids are always that nice, but otherwise, great people. Thank Mr. Don Callejon!

All my children go to Don Callejon and we are very pleased with the facilities and teachers. However we were all disappointed by the API score results. We have decided to move from the area as a result of this and the fact that most of the children who attend are from disadvantaged families who live around the Rivermark Community and only a small percentage are actually from Rivermark whose residents' demographics are very different. The school is already becoming overcrowded to the point that they are considering terminating the wonderful Day-Care and Pre-School Programs. The school also lacks diversity with many ethnic groups overly represented.

Some great teachers, some not so great. API scores mean nothing in terms of individual teachers and teaching methods. Some mid elementary teachers should be elsewhere. Be wary and keep on top of what is being done, shown, and said in the elementary classrooms. Far too many non-academic activities in some classrooms, too many parties, not enough teaching. Curriculum needs to be adhered to more. Low scoring middle school, and high amount of low scoring students.

From academic point of view this is a very good school. It will be great if the school could introduce more extracurricular activities

My child is in 1st grade. We love the school and the teachers are wonderful. Academically, its very challenging. My child is learning a lot. She can read books without help.

I'm a student of Don Callejon - Elementary and this will be my second year of being a student here. My opinion about this school is great! The architecture is great! The environment the school has is wonderful and everything make it more encouraging to learn. Everything is very big and roomy. The classrooms are large and doesn't make you feel squished. I've been to another school in Santa Clara and it is nothing compared to Don Callejon. We have a very large gymnasium, a rather large library, 40 computers in the media/computer room, many many new books, well educated students, wonderful teachers, and much more! I really enjoy the events DCSCO provides, especially the Walk-a-Thon, and the Starting Arts Program.

My daughter completed the first kindergarten in the new Don Callejon school and I couldn't believe how much she learned. She went from reading 3 letter words to whole books...and not baby books. She can write complex sentences and even short stories if given a picture to write about. She went from simple counting to adding double digits and was even introduced to fractions and multiplication...this is in KINDGERGARTEN! If she can learn that much in kindergarten, I can't wait to see her progress in 1st grade that just started. I know for a fact that the parent involvement was overwhelming in the lower grades. There were times they had too many volunteers on the field trips and had to turn parents away. I can't speak for the middle school since most of the parents I know are in the elementary school.

I love this school! My daugher started going to this school last year, and is currently entering the 3rd grade. She loves the environment, teachers, peers, and learning at this school so much, and has really shown a lot of academic improvement! Everything about Don Callejon has been great! The school's chef has a variety of nutritional meals, that children love! And the campus is beautiful! Communication from staff, parents, etc. is tremendous! And they have a great parent network called DCSCO that helps to support the school, which makes this school so special and stands out! Keep up the good work Don Callejon Staff, Teachers & Parents!

I knew that parents, students, and community members were looking to see what positives could come from a K-8 school setting. I loved inviting the middle school students to come watch my elementary students do plays, buddy read with them, and start programs such as recycling, gardening, sports, etc.

in don callejon school, quality of academeic programmes are very good and there are so many extracurricular activities that depends upon children's interest.Level of parent involvement is not too much.But this school can introduce more academic programmes based on student's grade level as well as extracurricular activities for all ages.Parents need to involve more with the children.

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.
