Very Pleased with this school. Parent community is very friendly. Children are appropriate and the office manager is best. If you want to know about a school, check out the office manager's disposition. Once I spoke to her I knew this was the school for us.

I am very unhappy with the amount of 'teaching to the test' that has been taking place within this school. I felt that my child spent most of his time taking tests and practicing test taking skills.

* 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.
