This is an amazing arts integration school with an excellent community of parents, teachers, and students.

My child just started kindergarten and I have been loving the school. The work has more math than I expected, and the after care is fantastic. My child often doesn't want to leave. The students are diverse and supportive of each other. The principal is very approachable and runs a tight ship. The ...  Read more

Don't judge this school by test scores, or stars, or any comments- (especially anonymous).

My son is a first grader at Peralta Elementary. The school is great and the teachers are very committed to their students. Parental involvement is high but not stifling.

* 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.
