I'm so upset with this school. My family is a low sugar family. This school feeds more sweets to my kids than I have ever fed to my kids for their entire lives! I made gluten free sugar free (with stevia and erythritol) cupcakes for my daughter's birthday yet she came home crying because kids teased ...  Read more

I've read the older reviews of this school and completely disagree with the parents who say the teachers and principal are just focused on test scores. Year after year, my children have had caring, dedicated teachers who have taken the time to help my children with learning throughout the year. This ...  Read more

Like many parents at Guadalupe we moved into this area to send our children to a high scoring API etc... 5 star, 10 out 10 school accepting nothing less. I have first & second grade children. We were very excited to start the year. The PTA was amazing starting the year by handing out envelopes of cash ...  Read more

We are so happy with this school. Our children have thrived here! Incredibly hard working teachers and staff. Parent participation is high, another key factor in a successful school.

The principal is focused mainly on STAR test scores so the teachers teach the student how to test well on the STAR test vs learn how to think and learn the concepts based on the principal's direction.. There is a strong parent involvement and the Home & School Club is strong supporting the arts, technology ...  Read more

My experience with the school; its teachers, principal and fellow parents has been positive. I have a child that has difficulty with focusing and unfortunately a public school may not be the best place for them. However, I have worked with the school and will continue to work with the school on making ...  Read more

Great test scores! Unfortunately this is the only thing this school cares about. Parent involvement is good, but teacher and principal knowledge, accountability and communication is lacking. Principal and school is not focused on educating the child, only worried about achieving high marks to pat ...  Read more

The administration and teachers focus less on the success of the student but rather the test scores of a select few. If a student struggles the first resolution to this problem is to highlight a students potential to do better and refuse to test the child. Unfortunate as tax dollars a paid to ensure ...  Read more

Excellent parent involvement. Most of the teachers are great and have the students best interest in mind. Although there are a couple that will only work well with the brightest students. The new principal has many new ideas, but doesn't always seem open to input.

Hopefully the new principal at this school will create a more egalitarian atmosphere. Some very good teachers, although quality varies--we ended up with a couple of bad apples. The parents are involved and that is part of the strength of this school. That said, among many parents, it is all about social ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
