SJE. My Son Attended for 5 yrs. 1st thru 4th grade teachers were awesome. 5th graders have 2 teachers over the day. One of which would not stop bulling my son, in spite of many meetings with her. I know of 2 other children who experienced the same. My child is quiet studious and well liked! .She ...  Read more

SJE is a wonderful School. I read the "drama queen" review and felt it was completely wrong, thus my follow up post. To explain, SJE is a split community school. Half of the kids are locals and the other half are all around the district. It is a Dual Immersion School, for Spanish Speakers to learn ...  Read more

My Daughter goes to this school. She is the only white child out of 34 kids in a fifth grade class. Wh had been to another school in the district and had gone throught a pretty bad bullying incident with 12 girls. I thought that San Juan would be a caring and nice, safe place for my daughter. It turned ...  Read more

My daughter is in 1st grade at SJES and we love it. The API scores are above the state mandated 800, and growing. My daughter also did two years of preschool on this site as well in a bilingual setting. I think she would be bored in an English only school. She loves her teachers and is one of the ...  Read more

My husband was involved in Spanish immersion when he was young, and every single ...  Read more

Teachers at San Juan are wonderful. The bilingual experience is so unique. In Kinder., they speak only Spanish to the students (except for the one hour a day they go to another teacher for English class). Each year, they increase the amount of English spoken and decrease Spanish until they are getting ...  Read more

To the reviewer from August 4, 2010: First of all, why bother rating a school if your kids don't go there?? You sound like a pretty vicious person. Second, I don't know where you get your information but SJE increased 66 POINTS in its API score this past year alone. Not only is that increase huge but ...  Read more

San Juan Elementary received an API Score of a 2 on the State Standadized Test. It surprises me to read parents saying they are happy that their children attend San Juan! So the children are getting below average education but hey, they love the school spirit, parent involvement (sounds like parents ...  Read more

My Godson is in the dual immersion kindergarten class, and as of 2/9, he can count to 105 & knows the alphabet in both languages, and can also read and write short sentences. He receives 30 minutes + of homework daily, and is involved in 2 after school programs, reading and marathon running training. ...  Read more

The unique opportunity to be in a two-way immersion program offers our children so many more opportunities to serve others. We have a beautiful multicultural community that expands minds as well as hearts.

* 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.
