Administration is so important to a school, it can set a tone that is helpful, professional, and unbiased. The attitude set by administration filters down throughout the entire school. I am sad to say that with the change of administration, the once overall positive attitude at our school has changed. ...  Read more

To clarify, a Title I school is not a school where there are a large number of second language students. It is a school where a large percentage of students are on free or reduced lunch and the school receives additional Federal aid. My two children go to school here and I couldn't be happier with ...  Read more

We love Guin Foss!! The teachers, staff, PTO, and Mrs. Jenkins are very commited to the students. What a great team! My kids have had nothing but positive experiences at the school. We thank everyone for all of the hard work and dedication.

Many of hte teachers at Guin Foss are qualified, caring and nuturing. It's too bad that the focus has twisted from learning to punishment.

My son has been attending this school for 5 years. I have not been happy with this school. They lower the kids self-esteem making kids hate school. There aren't too many teachers willing to help the kids who have learning difficulties. If your child is a A student you won't have a problem with this ...  Read more

My son had attended a private school previously. I can honestly say the overall quality of this school closely resembles that of a private school. The teachers show a genuine concern for the educational quality and growth of the children. The principal, Mrs. Jenkins is a true asset to this school.

* 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.
