Beware, the drama and gossip. You should just ignore all the gossip and when one of your *********** comes to tell you a rumor, you should avoid making comments that the person can use to create drama. If you ignore or don't act upon the gossip, they will eventually get tired of spreading the gossip.

I can say all the schools in CA is getting harder because of cut budgets. One teacher for 30 kids is just too many. No free school bus to the school and no teachers aid. The school asked parents to involve more to cover music, art and PE lessons. The facility is very nice though.

I am a student at Don Callejon and I'd say that everything is good in Don Callejon. I think that the teaching there is great all the way up to the 5th grade, which I am in now. The middle school there isn't all that great, I think that middle school there isn't the best it can be, all the way. The elementary is great, and I've been through all of it. Though a few people don't like P.E, you still learn a lot of the physical activities, which is what P.E is for, don't you think. I gave this scool an average and not above because the elementary is up to standard, but I don't think that the middle school is. There is a spirit day every Friday, though, to indicate school spirit. I personally think that Don Callejon is a great school, and that all elementery should at least be that good, and that all middle schools should at least be like it, if not better. I guess it would be a standard in many cases. Any elementary/middle school can't be lower than that, or else it would be below standard, which means it is just not a very good school. If any elementary scool is above that, then it is a great school, and if any middle school is above it, then that middle school is just average/okay!!!

This one of the better schools in SCUSD. There are good teachers, but working with constant budget cuts is very challenging. Lots of politics here within community members and related to boundaries, rezoning etc. Middle school has to improve a lot and many parents within the school boundary is opting for private when it comes to middle school. Hope it does better in future.

The school has just gone through a rough period of time involving a reboundarying situation due to the overcrowding at this great school. The overcrowding came due to the great job everyone was doing - principal, teachers, students, parents and communities. It is understandable that parents are upset. This was a no-win situation for anyone. However, the school will continue to thrive and the school that will be impacted by the move will thrive too as a result of the great students and parents that will be moving over. It would be great if all the communities could come together to help in the transition and form some groups like Girls Scouts to keep friends in contact and keep the bonds that have formed. The kids will all be together in high school again and to keep them in touch with each other then will help them ease into high school too.

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.
