I actually went to this middle school and I can honestly say they prepared me far too well for high school. I was prepared so well that when I went into high school I was so advanced; however, I think it was just that the high school I went to was a terrible school. I loved that Shively provided many programs for help and every teacher was more than willing to help you after hours. A shout out to the following for excelling in their expectations as a teacher: Ms. Layne, Ms. Tran, Ms. Ryder (ESP MS. RYDER! She's hard on you but you grow to love her), Mr. Moreno (taught me about health and kept me in awesome shape), and I cannot forget about Ms. Garica. Great teachers in New Temple would be Ms. Woods, Ms. Cowell, and Ms. K (BEST TEACHER EVER!). Do not take your children to South El Monte High School. My first two years there, I got lazy because teachers were not strict enough and did not provide ANY rigorous lessons. The best teachers there would be the following: Mr. Besocke (no longer there since my JR year), Mr. Wilke, Mr. Castillo, Ms. Saucedo, Mr. Reyna, Mr. Kitter, Mrs. Casillas, Mr. Clark, and Mr. McGinnis.

So far i think this school is great just there should be way better food though everything is great 3 more years to ggo in this school so i dont want them to be bad but i know they wont

I love attending this school! There are relly nice teachers and they help you in anything you need. This year i am going to graduate. After 5 years of being in this school, I always loved all my teachers and visit them every once in a while and tell tjem thank you very much for what they did and teach me. They try their best for students to understand the lesson, topic, or standard needed to pass the CST (California State Test)! If you are looking for an excellent educational school, then Dean L. Shively Middle School is a perfect choice! THANKS DEAN L. SHIVELY!!! I WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

This is a great school I went to school and know my kids go here to lots of peers that went to this school have their kids in this school also those parents that say that their is know lockers what do kids need lookers for, for them to hide things in their that the should not. What do they need an auditorium for that's just a waste of space and money. They do have a cafeteria but why do you want kids inside all the time they need fresh air and they have shade were they eat at. Ya they could improve on their food but if the parents including me that don't like the food their than get involve in the PTO, go to the school board meetings and speak up.Overall I love this school and new temple lots of homework very strick, very involved teachers, great principal.

I went here nearly a decade ago, and my last sibling is going through the district. I remember it as having developed a fantastic foundation that has more than prepared me for high school. Lots of work, but I spent more time on homework in middle school than high school, making it breeze as I got older. Yes, there is no gym and eating inside the cafeteria is rare, but why do you need one? It's California and fresh air/sunlight is great! I want to be able to remember a childhood unrestricted by walls as much as possible. Their playground is huge. The amount of space for running around as a kid was more than enough to keep me happy. Many of the friendships I had back in Shively are still maintained to this day. And lastly, I have since met several people from different backgrounds. When describing our childhoods, the experience I had at Shively was always a point of envy.

Shively is one of the best schools in the the city. I have seen many generations go through this school and I am proud to say they are doing great. SInce the Valle Lindo school district consists of only 2 schools, it makes their dedication to the kids greater!

Best School in the area and one of the best in California. I am a graduate at Shively and on my way to college. I would recommend it to anybody looking for a great school. The teachers are amazing and very helpful. The whole atmosphere of the school is extremely friendly. Learned a lot about working together with other people, we were like one big family.

Shively school is a disapointment to me and my sons that go to Shively. It is a very old and tired school that is not improving on teachers or adding a gym,lockers,ect.

I have one child there now and another starting next year. So far I think the school is good, the Teachers seem to care about their students and the Principal is strict and on top of both schools; impressed I might say. One of the things I don't like is that the stundents do not have lockers.

My children attended this school district for 4 years, the oldest attended this particular school. He is now in adv classes and attends the #40 top rated school in the US and I contribute that partly to the foundation he built up at DLS. I was impressed by the school right away, there are only 2 schools in the district Shivley and New Temple and I believe this allows for the school to focus more on the students! I am and was always extremely satisfied with the Principle and his staff. The District is strick - but fair! The uniform rule is harsh - but the children know from kinder that the school means business and will enforce all of the rules. Im a mother of 3 boys and this is my rating!

Huge teacher turn-over, principal shared by two schools, very poor administration. Uniform policy is super strict. I only liked going their because of my friends.

From what I can tell, the programs are excellent. The music program is excelled, there is a good GATE program that pushes the students forward, and sports/cheerleading teams are very good. The students get fresh air and the cafeteria is used to hold assemblies when not used in rainy days. Convenient.

Posted August 16, 2005

As long as you let them know that you are involved in your childs education they work with you to make sure your child succeeds. My child was a GATE student, so all I can say as far as academically I thought the school was on top of things (gave lots of homework).

No buses, lockers, and elective classes or advanced classes. Poor, small school. Has no gym, auditorium, or cafateria to eat inside. Students eat outside the cafateria when it is not raining.

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.

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.
