California Standards Test (CST)

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

    Correction this school is Grade K-5. Great school and I am very hopeful for the next 5 years!!!

    I know that LR Green is a good school. However please keep in mind that all schools in Escondido have extremely dedicated teachers. This school is one of the most affluent in the city. Low test scores are directly linked to poverty. Obviously schools like Green and Bernardo should and do have the highest test scores. PARENT INVOLVEMENT IS KEY. Schools with high poverty usually do not have this luxury. In order to create EQUAL schools the School Board must redesign the boundaries so that BALANCE is created. Unfortunately this district is SEGREGATED! What a shame.

    Many of these current ratings are dated. All of my kids have gone to LR Green and over the years some of the positives have changed and some of the negatives have been dealt with. The former principal now at Del Dios Middle was excellent with bullies. The current one tries to solve problems with communication and not confrontation - the bully's parents are given more of the responsibility to discipline - which seems to work better in the upper grades - hard to imagine when you have a bratty 7-year-old but my 10-year-old a former bully really gets it finally. Bernardo Elementary was opened a few years back split the boundaries and both the traffic issues and the parent's demographics changed. The parental involvement has decreased somewhat however it is still up to a pretty high level and there are still lots of parent foundation funded extras - with this neighborhood I don't see that changing. It's great that it's surrounded by a huge park. There are lots of businesses at the mall that want to sponser programs. Most of the teachers are the best in the district and have selected LR Green. I'm very happy I moved here.

    For the most part we've been happy with this school. Budget cuts affect this school immensely as I'm sure they do everywhere. I am most impressed with the principal. She is very visible at the school and seems to know all the kids. She went the extra mile in honoring a request with such a good attitude. I really feel "heard" by her.

    I couldnt have dreamed up a better place for my children to go the staff is amazing the campus is beautiful i am thrilled with this school.

  • (4 years ago)

    Very dissapointed in this school. I find myself afraid to leave my child at this school. There is no safety here. Anyone can walk in and around the campus without being noticed. Lots of bullying out of control classrooms. The principal seems unaware of classroom issues. My child will not be back next year.

    My daughter had the best 1st grade experience at this school! Her teacher made her feel comfortable and special while challenging her in academics. We moved out of the Escondido district but we miss this school immensely.

    Best Elementary school in Escondido and the teachers are wonderful!

    L.R. Green is a really good school. My daughter loves it and so far has had good teachers. Like any school some teachers will be better than others but for the most part the teachers are great. The academics are good but may be challenging for some kids/families. They work hard to keep up the test scores. If you are an involved parent you should be fine.

    This school is great if you have a stay at home parent. There is no easy access for child to get to and from school. There is no drop off before 7 30. As for academic programs there are several after school programs from sports to theatrical. This school offers band for 4th grade up and the band teacher is very kind and patient with parent and students. L.R. Green does not tolerate bullys or teasing by students so it is great for the sensitive child. We have been very pleased with LR Green and hope our next school is just as wonderful for our child.

    Academic program is excellent. Little in the way of extracurricular activities offered which is a huge disadvantage. Parent involvement is very high and it is a safe and well run school.

  • (10 years ago)

    This is the best public elementary school in Escondido. The teachers and administration are excellent and the students' test scores are the highest in Escondido. There is an incredible amount of parent involvement which contributes to the superior quality of the school.
