We were concerned about the quality of the teaching, but our daughter enrolled in the Laptop program and we are very pleased in all. Some things never change in schools. There are teachers who should have retired long ago and suffer burn out. Leadership, while good, seems to focus on keeping the problem ...  Read more

Tenaya Middle School is a great place to go to school. At first I wasn't too sure about it but it turned out to be a great school.

This School is a failure to the children who are enrolled. Teachers working together to demean those who are stuggling, and they have no clue of the effects these actions are and will be with them through out their lifes. They all need a life preserver, but like the Titantic only the chosen few will ...  Read more

Horrible Principal, lazy teachers, non-existent communication!!! No permanent full-time counselors on site. Would have given this school a zero if were allowed. Worst school to send your child if they are not academically gifted because teachers & Principal are too busy making excuses rather than helping ...  Read more

* 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.
