i think sutherland school is a very good school - there are several things that can be improved - but to extend the school day, get rid of 50% of the teaching staff and revamp the whole infrastructure without any parent involvement is not acceptable. all of the good programs were taken away due to budget cuts and i don't know how they're supposed to succeed. more on this review after the may 5th district board meeting. thanks, mrs. hilliard

This school has been the best that I have ever been to. The prinipal is probably the kindest, reasonable, and best you will ever find. The teachers are absolutely amazing. They have the task of teaching students of all levels, and somehow, they pull it off. I am one of those students, and I have to say, this school does a good job, from the beginning of the school day to the end of the after school program.

Sutherland Elementary School has been a great institution for my niece and my nephew. They both have accelerated in school because of their great take away from Sutherland Elementary School.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
