My child love Joseph George. He is in a great music program and has performed all over San Jose. The Principal and Assisant Principal have done a great job in making the school inviting for students and parents. My child was challanged academically everyday.

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.
