My daughter is about to finish 1st grade and we have had a good experience here.

My daughter has been at Bella Vista for grades 4 and 5. I found the education offered there to be very poor. They seem to simply 'pass' the child with no regard to her/his academis achievements.

My son was at Bella Vista a few months, and although the teachers seemed to really care about the students, I don't think that they get much support from the principal.

* 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.
