Not a good school for 7th or 8th grade. Teachers are limited. No extra-curricular. Too much brow-beating going on under the guise of "preparation for high school." Kids are just beaten down and lose interest and hope. Although the principal is great - the teachers don't follow her leadership nor ...  Read more

While it is a cut above sending your kids to Sylvan Middle School (shudder) - it will not get your kids ready for high school. The AVID concepts that are supposed to be embedded in the curriculum are nowhere ...  Read more

Lichen has come a long way. In 2008-2009 we continue to see an increase in academic achievement which can be directly attributed to our teachers' hard work with our kids. Lichen's scores are above the district average and continuing to climb. With the addition of a band and choir program this year ...  Read more

Terrible school, they hardly watch the children, they cannot handle any bullies on the playground. My child went from k-5th grade not being able to read, and they didn't even notice. I spoke to the teacher and they said my daughter could read fine, but I knew different, it wasn't until after I pulled ...  Read more

While the school has some wonderful teachers, the 7th and 8th grade teachers seem to work against the parents instead of with them. They refuse to try to work this out with me and my son's education is suffering because of it.

* 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.
