Bobier has excellent teachers and puts them to good use. I would really like to see a dual immersion program for all children to learn to speak Spanish as well as those who speak it to learn to read and write. Ms. Alfonso works well to keep the classroom up to date and materials needed to learn in good supply. Far more parent involvement and family functions such as homework centers would really help bring up our test scores.

Bobier is in great need of help to improve standards by implementing a second, english learner section of the school for it's majority immigrant population.

I think bobier is a great school. I have heard many things about this school. I have to say that my oldest son attended bobier and my daughter goes to bobier now. I have never ever had a problem with either of them at all especially academically! I have to say the teachers are GREAT and so is MR. LACEY! good job to the staff of bobier!

I think that bobier has great teachers. They started a new rule that parents can only drop their children off in the front and back gates and let them walk alone to their classes including the kindergartners we weren't to happy about that. Having two older children that went to a different school and the experience was a little different they would letting the parents visit with the children and eat lunch with them. We thought that it would be like that at bobier instead the experience was unpleasant for us.

What a surprise Bobier has been! Our son started out at a Christian school for the first grade. The Christian school was not even willing to work with him!So, we put our first grader in a public school 2 months after school started. What a difference! The school worked with him and us and he excelled in all of his classes! My mind forever changed about public schools!My oldest child was school over half of his life in a Christian school and my husband and I always thought that it should go that way for our youngest. Little did we know! Two thumbs up for Bobier Elem!

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.
