This is an excellent school! My daughter is receiving an enriching and well rounded education. So far she's had amazing teachers. The principal really seems child oriented and cares. He definitely has the best interest of the students. I am very pleased with the education my daughter is getting.

This school has excellent teachers and staff. If your child excels, then there are challenges for your child at this school. If your child needs academic help, there are fantastic resources as well. Students are given learning opportunities appropriate for their level and are assessed throughout the year and their opportunities changed if needed. We are very pleased with this school.

My grandchildren attended this school and were taught by some wonderful teachers.

Fantastic school, which features teachers of varying areas of expertise. I have been thrilled with the level of education from kindergarten to fifth grade so far. This is a California distinguished school and deffinitely lives up to its distinction.

This is our first year in Rosedell Elem. and I think being a distinguished school they deserve to be honored for my children adore and love their new school. The teachers are really nice and they helped their students excel on their strenghts and improve their weaknesses.

Moving my daughter to this school was the biggest mistake. This school rating was good , but some of the teachers are discriminating . There was no challenges provided to my little girl , after bieng a straight A student , she was dissapointed to go to this school , eventually her grades started falling and she did not want to go to school anymore , i had to pull her out , and thank god i did !

My daugter was new to Rosedell in 2004. The staff made her feel real welcomed and got her involved with the school imediately. She made lots of friends and is now in Jr. High. The moved to Santa Clarita was well worth it.

Rosedell is a great school , there is a lot of emphasis on education and citizenship. Now with the new academic recognition 4 times a year , students are more motivated than ever!

My daughter is in kindergarten at Rosedell, and we are loving it! I am so glad we moved here and put her in school, she is doing very well, the academics are high, and she is having a positive learning experience. The PTA is very active, there are always lots of activities. She has music and computers, and they have a P.E. teacher that is great!

Excellent school. This is my child's 4th and final year at Rosedell (she is currently in 6th grade). I have found the teachers to be caring, concerned, and passionate about their work. They are very open to listening to parents concerns and encourage parental input, unlike my child's previous school, which is also part of the Saugus Union School District. My experience with Rosedell Elementary has been very positive and my child has thrived (emotionally and academically) and performs well above her grade level. This school has exceeded my expectations.

This school meets and beats all my expectations of a public school. We took our sons to a private school for kindergarten to get them a head start, or so we thought, on going into 1st grade. As it turns out they we're behind the same kids that attended Rosedell! Their 1st grade teacher has made such a difference they are now moving right along with the other kids in class. My boys want to go to school, they are upset when they have too many days off. How great is that.

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.
