My children have been attending this school since the 2009-10 school year and I am happy with the teachers and staff. I do think they need to be more strict with misbehaved and unruly children. The parking is a nightmare and they should open up the lower dirt field below the lower playground so parents and family can park there. There's always double parking, illegal handicapped space parking and parking in non authorized spots. Not education related, but annoying. As far as the lady complaining about her son being picked up by "another family", he was picked up by his baby sitter, NOT a stranger. There was a total lack of communication on the mom, baby sitter and the school. So please understand This is not a dangerous school and I have no fear of my children being signed out to "another family". I firmly believe if you want your children to succeed then the parents need to be involved.

The Principal at this school is the WORST! Melody Belcher believes that the school is not responsible for your children once the school bell rings and class is dismissed !!! She put that in writing! They have had several children taken by people who are not on the approval list and the school has even put children on buses who don't ride the bus.

On August 14th, my child was picked up from school by an unauthorized adult. Being of special needs, my expectations were to pick up my son the moment the school day was over and to be informed of his day. Did not happen. Instead, my son's teacher looked around in a panic, unsure of what might have happened. I was escorted then to the principal's office, and waited unfathomable amounts of time in precious minutes of anxiety not knowing where my child was. The principal, however, took her time and refused to meet with me in a timely manner. After waiting an estimate of 30 minutes of inadequate service, I was informed that the principal was actually still within her office, and I made my anxieties clear. After taking my worries up with her, I made a quick dash to my home, to find that my son had been picked up by his babysitter BEFORE THE BELL RANG. The information given to me at the school was insufficient on the identity of the 'man and woman' who picked up my child, nor was the description adequate. I would not recommend this school to ANY parent, much less to any parent of an autistic child. The one saving grace this school had to offer was my son's immediate teacher, Ms Chattin.

On August 14th, my son was sent on a bus when he was to be picked up by me. The office faculty laughed at the fact he was sent on a bus. The principal was nowhere to be found and the teachers were apologetic and trying to be helpful. The teachers there are their only saving grace. The principal is unresponsive and irresponsible. The office staff is irresponsible and rude. I was not notified that my son was put on a bus. Another student was given to an unauthorized person and the person did not sign the log book that every parent or person picking up a child is suppose to sign before dismissal.

I don't like this school at all. I have a little sister that goes there. This "Great" school is really not that great. There are a number of things that I can think of that need changing. I don't understand how this school, to other people, seems so darn amazing. Anyway, this school is just not what elementary schools should be like.

I currently have my 3 girls enrolled in this wonderful school and I am very pleased to say that I am very satisfied with Loma Elementary. The teachers are wonderful and helping the children be successfull is their top priority (also shows on their high school grading), the principal is caring and very hands on, and the rest of the staff like the custodians, Administration, playground supervisors, and cooks are the best and my children love them. The school offers a lot of parent/child/teacher involvement activities, music lessons for 4th & 5th graders, after school art class, running club and more... This school also offers ESS (extended school services) which is a great program that follows an age appropriate schedule. This year will be the only year all my girls will be in one school together and I'm glad it's at Loma Elementary. =)

This is a GREAT school. The PTA has sponsored so many wonderful events like: Family Movie nights and we just had first Fall Festival. The principal is very involved and supportive. The teachers and staff are very caring, it's a great atmosphere. API scores continually move up every year. Highly recommend this school!!

My Son attends this school and I can't be any more pleased than I am with; his teachers, his progress as a students, the kids he has made friends with and their parents, and the administration. The Principle seems to know all the kids names, at least she knows my sons ( hope that is a good thing ). My only disappointment is not their fault, this school does not have a music program, nor does it have an art program these are things kids need to develop their ability to think critically. I love this school!

Just moved here three months ago. Very understanding and caring teachers. My daughter made friends right away coming into the end of the school year. It was very important to have her feel welcome and she did and loved to go to school. She is being held back from first grade because of me and she only went to kindergarden for two months. But she is fine with that and enjoying the summer and getting back to school soon. The teachers were very excited about how quickly she learned and were helpful on making the decision to hold her back easy! very caring teachers with hugs and hi fives for the kids every morning and night! kids were very respectful and quite the melting pot of nationalities just like america was founded on!! wonderful wonderful school. Just missing the music and art classes.They will come back someday!!

I have had children attend loma for 15 yrs now.It has been the best experience for both my kids and us parents.I have also been involved in PTA and we are very concerned for the children's safety and all the extra activities and always brainstorming in ways to raise monies to help have a better environment for all the kids. and the teachers and staff are very caring,kind and involved especially the principal.My older kids still talk about the great memories they have had at Lome. Loma you rock!!

I have 2 kids here. The office/lunch staff are great and teachers work hard for kids to learn. They have many school-sponsored functions to bring families and school together (Math Night, BBQ, Sock Hop, AdoptAFamily at Xmas, etc). PTA is strong and have provided many things to help enhance the school and school kids (shade structures, field trips, assemblies, new electric billboard). Principle encourages healthy life-choices and heads up the school's 'Running Club'. Just wish they had a regular PE time/teacher.

My nephew goes to Loma and really likes it. (K- 2nd so far.) There are family math and reading nights and lots of homework assignments for the kids. There are plenty of opportunities for parents to volunteer for field trips, etc. and there are sports & exercise activities as well. I think they get a lot of attention and care at Loma and we have a very positive view of the school.

I have 2 children that go to this school. One started out in 2nd and the other in kindergarten. They really care about the kids here. Sending weekly reports to let us know how they are doing and/or calling. They have what they call 'Paw Power' and it is great the school is supportive of eachother. They really get the kids involved. The curriculum is much more then any other school. More work here, but that is ok.

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.

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.
