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.

    This school gets amazing test scores but this is mainly due to the parents. The kids at this school get very little individual instruction. Instead teachers assign hours and hours of homework each night which forces the parents to essentially take over the teaching role. If you child falls behind and you work full-time good luck getting the teacher or school to take any responsibility. It's automatically your or your child's fault. So if your kid is naturally bright and/or you have time to teach them the curriculum you are in great shape.

    My daughter went to this school for 2 years . Academic is really good however there is so much bullies in the school. My daughter transfered in different school now and her attitude change totally. We need to build the foundation for the first 5 years. Environment has impact with our kids.

    Office staff is always rude it seems like you are bothering them. Principal thinks that she is superior than you and doesn't seem to care for students as she claims. As for the teachers and rest of staff they are great. They would do so much better if they didn't have that dark cloud on top of them!

    The teachers are awesome hard-working and really care about the kids! The PTA is so supportive even though it's a small core group of people who do the majority of the work. The principal is kind receptive and fair. The office staff have such a tough job--dealing with disgruntled family members and the ton of paperwork that comes across their desks! I love the school--it's not perfect but they have treated my son and daughter really well not to mention my husband and me! Go there with a sense of humor respect for all and an open mind--you'll be treated well!

    Horrible. Principal is the worst. I have 3 kids. Highly disappointed. Don't let the 10 rating fool you....try a different school....maybe a charter....keep your kids away from this place!

    My daughter attended for only 5th. I felt that she didn't get very much individual attention. Her schoolwork was never returned until the end of the year. Teachers never gave much input. Everything had 3's on it when she's clearly an A student. There was no real explanation of the grading system on board. I was not impressed with the teaching methods at this school.

    Well the bathrooms are absolutely disgraceful always overflowing teachers seem to think that they alone have the power to collectively teach academics while seeming to think that a little discipline is bad yet they are always stressing over it. My point is that this school has terrible hygiene and is a center of contracting illness if you step foot into it while discipline lacks a lot as kids have no manners and don't place themselves in other shoes. I would not even dream to admit my child into attending such a school

    Great school!! The principal teachers parents and staff are fully invested in the students' education!! I have a son that just started kindergarten there and so far I am absolutely blown away by this school.

    This school is such a pleasure to work at. The staff is professional and extremely intelligent. The office is run so efficiently!! The students are happy to attend school and are ready to learn everyday. The PTA is incredible. They offer so many special activities for the children and parents!!

    The culture of bullying is strong at Superior. My experience there shows that it comes from the top down. The principal seems nice until you express a dissenting opinion or don't "fall on line". Then she is cold condescending and ineffective. My child's teacher is a completely "cold fish" who has made my beautiful child feel ostracized and victimized. Beginning the year a happy vibrant school-loving self-confident child who now expresses a feeling of being friendless singled-out and dreads going to school is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. This teacher affected another child in that class so much that the child had to get counciling for extreme anxiety and ended up leaving the school. This is not just accustoming to classroom culture but daily relentlessly beating down the children's creativity joy and individualism. Just wrong! As far as being a dissatisfied parent "hiding behind the anonymity of the Internet" - we have repeatedly taken our concerns to the teacher and principal thinking that our child's perceptions may have been mistaken only to have our child repeatedly treated in a retaliatory manner. And the "welcoming" school community is actually very closed & unfriendly.

    I have been at this amazing school since 1999. I have 8 kids and 4 have graduated from here and 2 currently attend with 2 two still to follow. I could not have asked for a better place for my kids to get an outstanding education while at the same time being instilled with amazing values and character. The staff and Principal go out of their way to make these things happen. They share in a great parternship with us parents who want all these attributes for our children. The front office staff is loving caring and always on point with any parents or childrens needs. The Principal is kind and loving and warm towards the children and parents she is not just our Principal but our friend. The teachers are truly caring and welcoming to parent volunteers. My kids still come back to see their teachers eventhough the older ones are in high school and college! I believe my children are of amazing character and it all stems from this school! The inviorment is so positive children flourish here. As I like to say "you can take the kid out of Superior but you can never take the Superior out of the kid!" I and my children are truly lucky to be part of such an amazing loving place to learn!

    I love the staff especially the ladies in the office they are the backbone of our school. We are truly fortunate to have a principal who cares so strongly about the students and the school. Our principal is always available to parents and students she is caring loving and genuinely interested in the well being of our children. Our school has a great PTA and wonderful parent volunteers. Unfortunately there are many parents who don't want to participate. It's a shame to see negative reviews posted with mean spirited comments by people hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. If you are really unhappy with something at our school it would be better to go directly to the source and address the issue.

    I have been a parent of Superior for 6 years now! This school is one of the top schools in the Nation and it is because of the team work of the Principal Teachers Staff Students and Involved Parents & Community members. They keep this school going as a top notch school even with all the budget cuts and negative support of some individuals. As for the office staff I truly appreciate those ladies because with the cuts to the office dealing with arrogant/rude people and being the 'messenger' for LAUSD policy/procedure....they get it done! Our students never feel the effects of the cuts. The one downside is that every year it seems to be the same group of parents who volunteer on a regular basis (for PTA school events Committees etc.)...wish more parents volunteered! As for the fundraising I know for a fact that Superior does NOT get much funding from the federal/state government because of the low percentage in English Learners and Below Poverty Line students so the amazing PTA raise alot of money to fund many things at the school that directly affect our students.

    Superior St Elementary is an outstanding school! The teachers are talented and dedicated! Support staff are extremely hard working and helpful! The principal is also one hundred dedicated to student achievement and safety! She is always responsive and shows sincere concern for her students. Students best interest is her number one priority! Thank you Superior for all that you do for our children!

    Superior street is a great school. I"m so happy to be part of a Superior team.

    It is a great academic school except the Principal is out in la la land. She talks with a high voice and talks down to everyone as if they are young children or something. If they got a great Principal to replace her the school would be even better.
