Pulled both kids out. They were picked on all year. Both kids were 1 of only 2 white kids in their classes. If your child isn't an illegal immigrant's anchor baby on WIC and food stamps then your kid won't fit in.

I love this school! I wish that my children could do all of their years of school at Nokomis. The teachers always help with everything I was concerned about. The principal gets to know each involved parent and their family. I feel that my children are well taken care of at this school and I never have to worry about my children when they are there. Thank you Nokomis for being such a caring 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.
