My boys have all gone to Lincrest. The teachers are very structured and organized. They genuinely care about the students.

Mrs. Hall is an excellent teacher who goes above and beyond the call of teaching. She is dedicated and ensures that all her students succeed. The line of communication is always open! Great job Mrs. Hall and Lincrest!

Lincrest Elementary School recently received the 2009-10 Title I Academic Achievement Award. This is no small victory. Only 243 of California's 10,000 schools made the cut. Congratulations to Principal Liz Miller and the Lincrest teachers for setting high standards, and a job well-done to the students for meeting those goals.

My son has attended Lincrest since K and is now in the 4th grade. We LOVE Lincrest!! The teachers and staff are fabulous. Parent involvement is highly encouraged and there is a real sense of community within the school. I would consider no other school for my child.

My daughter is a 5th grader at Lincrest. Her teacher Mr. Nieto is very good! He makes sure that all of the kids are on track, and most importantly, take responsibility for themselves, and their progress. It's rare today to have a teacher who makes such an impact that all your child does is talk about them at home! Keep up the good work Lincrest, and Mr. Nieto!

New teachers at the school are questionable at best. If you have a problem and are able to get a hold of the principal, don't expect much help.

My children have been attending Lincrest for two school years and I must say it is one of the best schools in the area! The teachers are outstanding and highly encourage parent involvement. My son's teacher Mrs. Hall is an especially extraordinary teacher. My son has some issues and Mrs. Hall has gone above and beyond her job description to not only be an excellent teacher but a behavior specialist at times. She has kept the lines of communication flowing between herself and I in order to help my son; as she does for every student she teaches. The office staff, counselor, daycare staff, and janitorial staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend Lincrest above any elementary school in the district.

We moved here from Oregon and enrolled our two daughters in Kindergarten and 1st grade. The teachers are wonderful, patient, structured, firm but very kind. They both love their teachers and enjoy being at school.

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.
