The downside is that the results of the California Standards Tests showed students were below state averages. However, the school is improving and students are learning. If you have any concerns, it would be best to talk with other parents, teachers and staff to learn more about the curriculum and the learning environment. Finding the best school that works well with your family will be the one that will help your children succeed.
