You can get the best from this school if you recognize its key strengths. Teachers are great. They are very gentle yet firm and very nurturing. The teachers, staff and the preschool Director do an amazing job. It's an excellent school in a safe suburb. Students are driven and motivated. The most important ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
John G. Mattos Elementary School
Fremont Unified School District
* 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.
