So far so good with my kids in this school, who are in 1st and K. I have nothing to compare it to and I am not involved other than helping my kids with their homework.

My Kindergarten twins have had wonderful experiences this year. Mrs Davis is truly the best! The staff has been wonderful with my kids. I have always had access to both the teachers and administration if I ever needed it.

Though I rated another Big Bear school badly I'd like to say this is a great school, lots of support for families and all the situations that go along with being a family. Great staff, and the teacher, at least our teacher, was an angel. I reccomend!

Where's the music? This district used to provide K-6 weekly classroom music instruction. Is there value on the arts? However, Ms. Congdon is a great principal who really is there for her students; involved and hands-on, very caring!

Wonderful teachers, inconsistant leadership. Communication is poor with administration and parents. Test scores are improving but enrollment is down. It could be a great school.

* In 2011-2012 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.
