I am a 5th grade kid i love my teachers. The food is always bad but it is getting better. I love Mr. West and Mrs. Tyner.

Steffan Manor has a principal that truly cares about every child in it. He makes sure the staff is on top of everything they should be, and has a good rapport with the parents. I have seen him in action, having worked there for many years, and he makes this school a special place for learning and growing for every student. He ensures that every child gets what they need.

My three children have attended this school from kindergarten. They are now in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. The teachers and staff are wonderful! They truly care about the children and the teachers take pride in being educators even if they are usually not recognized for the outstanding work that they do for the kids.

I have 2 children at this school. They love it and so do I. There are many excellent teachers who truly care about what they do and about the children! The facilities are top notch (school is newly rebuilt from a catastrophic fire) and the playground is in great condition. I highly recommend Steffan Manor.

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.
