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

    I have two children attending this school since last year. I do not live in the area therefore I drive them there every morning and it is worth it! The staff is very friendly the grounds are always clean the teachers keep their skills fresh with continual education the cafeteria is clean and serves nutritional meals and grounds are secure and safe. I am highly satisfied with my children's learning environment. For the last two years Mr. Chavez the principal was exceptional! I am sure our new principal will do as great as a job too!

    I was a student here for both 4th and 5th grade. My experience here was both challenging and rewarding! My favorite teacher came from here. The home-town experience with the nurse is a wonderful memory (her husband and my dad worked together at the post office) and the beautiful cultural learning I received is a fond memory with Dinco De mayo the field trips and the sugar cube missions. I wish my daughter had the teachings I had!! Thank You Ramona Alessandro for what you've taught me and for something to strive for with my daughter!! Lv and miss the days! -Janay Doering (Coley)

    I am very pleased with my son's education at the school. He has only been there two years. The teachers are very dedicated. The love their job and the students. They make learning enjoyable as well as push the students to go to the next level and do their best. The school has a family feel to it that I enjoy.
