My son went to this school for a month and a half, K teacher he first had was great and really understood our sons educational and behavioral needs. Then he was switched classes with out no parent or student notifacation, and created enough problems to tranfer him from schools.

John Muir is an excellent school with an experienced dedicated staff and one of the best principals in the county. My son is in 2nd grade and has access to both a chess club and a science club and is challenged to do his best every week. I can recommend this school without reservations.

My Kindergartener entered knowing how to count up to 15 and other basic things, and almost one year later, she can count to 100, do simple addition and subtraction and write sentences. Her teacher has really worked hard with the class, and I feel that my child is ready for 1st grade.

My 2 children came from Bellevue School in Atwater, Ca. I think they learned way more there than here. One of my kids has started getting in trouble for not doing her homework, she's bored. If your teachers are ranked above average, why are test scores below average? My children were forced to come to ...  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.
