Our son has greatly enjoyed his 6th grade teachers and succeeded beyond our expectations. They have motivated him to become an independent learner and inspired him to work to his full potential. We are very happy he has access to the incredible nature center, and some opportunity to visit the adjacent Full Circle Farm, which we hope will continue to be able to collaborate with the school. For now, we couldn't be happier, and look forward to next year.

As a student who is currently enrolled in this place some call "school" I have to say, although challenging this school has a large assortment of activities for you to participate in. I call this a "school" because I feel it's more of a fun, social experience rather than a place for learning, but don't get me wrong, this school can be tough if you don't stay on top of your work.

I`m not a student yet, I`m going to be next year though. At my grade school, people think "The Nerds" at school only go to Peterson. Or, "Only lucky people go to Peterson" Well...a little offensive, and some people think that this school is full of smart people. I think there`s more smart people in Peterson than Cabrillo. A lot of people say that Peterson is a excellent school. I looked around the whole school once and I thought this was much better and cleaner than Cabrillo. Peterson looks like a great school. I think everyone should have the same opinion.

You know, there are a lot of reviews on this site about "the teachers are bad" and "I have no friends," but that's really a personal issue, none more. Everyone has their own interpretation of others, not all students can be open-minded an accepted by others. Everyone is given a chance, time after time at Peterson, and it's just up to the student to choose to take it. Those who don't won't have the best experience, and those who do will come out and love the school. I had a wonderful time at Peterson, and thought all the staff members were wonderful. You may believe they are rude and unassuming, but you didn't get to know them for three years. You can't generalize off of a ten minute encounter. And every teacher is great, it's one hell of a job. You have to love what you do very much to be able to put up with some of the students. You won't like a teacher if they don't like you, and if you're a rude, lowly, reproachful student, you're not going to have a good time. But that's on you, not on the teachers. --Peterson Graduate of 2013

I am currently a student at Peterson. It is an amazing school! The staff is ready to help the kids, no matter what the problems. The nature center makes science easy, and more more fun.

My daughter and I love this school, I can't believe that my daughter jumps out of bed at 6:20AM just to make it early to school, she made a lot of nice friends, is challenged by the educational program, and above all she is SAFE, there is no bullying. The Peterson + program for 6th grade was very challenging, they have honor classes for 7thand 8th grade, and an extremely competitive after school math club. The school offers so many electives to choose from and about 15 after school clubs. The principal is involved in every little detail, she's always around campus and knows the students by their names, she's always available to listen patiently to both parents and students, and helps students feel loved and safe at Peterson, she's doing an excellent job. The teachers are wonderful, the administration staff are so professional and organized, and the counselors are so knowledgeable. The PTSA is amazing, and shows how much parents are involved at Peterson. I'm so looking forward to my younger daughter joining this great school.

This is the best school I've ever been to. The teachers are wonderful and so are the students. Supervision is excellent, they even have surveillance cameras. The library is huge and has a variety of books. The principal and vice principal are very active, and very involved. There is absolutely no bullying. The curriculum is very challenging. I Love my school.


Posted February 24, 2012

I love this school! It has so much to offer our students and parents ~ with teachers and staff modeling a strong work ethic. The students are happy to go to school each day, and that is rare for middle schoolers! They did a very good job during the lockdown situation last Fall, and I'm proud to be part of such a great school community.

We don't know where this school's attitude from. The office staffs are always so rude, never have smiles on their faces, never seem to be patient enough to answer parent's questions. We talked to at least 3 different staffs in this school and none of them seem friendly at all. The arrogant mandatory orientation without admission admission and lottery system are complete disasters for both parents and childres! My son goes to another middle school with even high API in the neighborhood middle school. They don't have lottery and mandatory partent meeting. Office staffs are super helpful and friendly. Just remember: the school API has a lot to do with the students themselves and parent's involvement. If teachers and staffs in the school have this type of attitude, please rethink of another choice such as cupertino and sunnyvale middle! Your kids will involve with the same or better quality of group of kids and not exposed to rude staffs like Peterson. Peterson middle school has some serious operation and attitude problems!!!

peterson middle school is one of the average schools in sunnyvale because they give awards to everybody in 8th grade.I thought only me will get the award but everyone gets the award.it's really awesome for other students but not for me.As i was working hard day & night for doing homework & learning what the teachers give me for reading,so only me will get the award not everybody.As with me in lunch nobody talks to me because everybody are doing their own work,i just like talking with others,as i learn about different cultures.i already graduated this year from this school,but i don't have any friends.so,i will make new friends in wilcox high school.i recommend everyone to think twice before you/anybody enroll for this school.Beaware of jolliff james is just not a good/nice teacher.i hate him & he is always giving trouble to everybody in each or the other way.

i hate this school it was absolutely horrible the teachers are all very problematic except for heidig mckenzie and joliff thats it all the other teachers need to go back to college and as for the principal and vp well they should be fired they dont do theyre job and they wonder why we students rebel and dont follow the rules cause they nag about everything i am so glad i left this school when i did. the only thing that i miss is my friends thats it and the 3 teachers i listed above. i would never send my child here. cabrillo middle school is a much better school for the santa clara parents who have children going into middle school.

I am a student at Peterson middle school when I found out that I got accepted to this school i was mad at my parents for even registering me at the school now i am about to graduate 6th grade. I definetly love this school. I have improved so much this year. I learned a lot from all my teachers. This school is like my second family. The staff is really nice and so are the students.

Overall this is a good school. Some of the teachers are OUTSTANDING, while there are a few that probably shouldn't be teaching. Parent involvement is good.

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.
