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 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.

    This schools district we moved in to in 2008 when my oldest son went to quil run elementary First of it is mixed community mostly people from India and Korea These kids have tutors and go to churches that offer free tutoring to them My child was new in school it takes time to get used it to any child he is energetic and full of life Teachers did not like that They used kids that are quite and east to be controlled I had meetings with school personnel They said that my child has to be seen by doctor and proscribe calm down prescription and it is autism ! And he has to go to special aid class which was something new and outrages to me because I know my son and he is absolutly normal . I didn't like that and transfer him to coyoti creek elementary where of course since it's same district they knew about my son To make story short it is rotten spoiled and ignorance population . You have to meet there standards otherwise you out or you are will diagnosed by district with disorder they can come up with So make sure before you move Danville /dan ramon you are prepared and your child has A's B's and is looks in one direction without making a sound ! Good luck !

    I have loved Quail Run since my daughter's first day of Kindergarten. She is now in 5th grade and will be graduating in a couple of months and I am very proud of my daughter's development socially and scholastically. The campus is safe and there are always adults supervising during their stated hours. The system is well organized for pickups and drop-offs that are consistently enforced. Staff does an amazing job of communicating with parents. Parents remain very involved in activities. PTA has very high participation and provides fun activities and enriched learning activities throughout the year. Plenty of opportunities to become part of a community albeit not very diverse... but I have always found the majority to be fairly welcoming. Amazing leadership by previous principal. New principal's first year is proving to be a good candidate

    My 2nd grader last year loved her teachers and school. This school truly cares about our kids overall education and character!

    My daughter used to go here and she loved it! It was sad that we had to switch schools but she seems happier with the one she currently has. Twin Creeks Elementary has O.K communication but Quail Run helps me better in finding out what events are taking place. My daughter has been there for K-1st grade and now she is in 4th grade. She misses Quail Run but like I said is happy to be with her new school. Quail Run is better for its large community great communication and well education. I remember that the school principle had a principle of the year reward. Twin Creeks has that well education but is small and has poor communication. The way I say what Twin Creeks is about doesn't make it a bad thing actually in real life I think their tied even if Quail Run has more stars. Its tough for me so I am going to put 4 stars.

    Great communication with parents that encourages involvement. Integrated online curriculum helps parents stay involved with weekly syllabus progress.

    We just finished our third year at Quail Run and love it! The parent involvement through the PTA Learning Fund and classroom volunteers is amazing! We are like one big community all looking out for each other. The teachers are fantastic and truly care. The administration is AMAZING and supportive of everyone. My only problem has been Mrs Verbani the PE teacher. She obviously doesn't like her job. I understand that to deal with that many children you need to be somewhat strict but she is over the top. I have witnessed her on many occasions and I don't like the way she treats the kids. Telling them to "stop being such wimps" after they get hurt (and still have swelling a day later from) is not conducive to a positive learning environment. Making children cry and be fearful of you is just plain bullying. I am too hesitant to take it any further though because I don't want my child to be targeted by her continuously.

    Quail Run has just been approved for the first Mandarin/English immersion program in the district in May 2011! We will have the first 50 50 immersion program available beginning Fall 2011 for Kindergartener and the plan is to add one additional level per year. This is awesome....understanding a second language is so important in this global economy and we are glad that QR is on the edge of keeping up with this evolving trend.

    I've had the privilege of long-term subbing at both Live Oak and Quail Run. As a Windemere parent of a future student I'd prefer my child attend QR. I've worked with 4 different principals. Mrs. Loflin is at the top of my list in terms of her leadership. The teachers at QR do seem more approachable. I've had numerous students tell me they love it there! The after school programs offered there are a bonus.

    My daughter went to Quail run last year in decemeber and I was amazed at the school and specially her teacher in 4th grade. she helped her so much in adjusting to the school and the class. she was so easily accessible for any questions i had. both me and my daughter loved it there. but since our home school was hidden hills we have this year moved here. I have to agree my experience at quail run was much better. In hidden hills I have seen her teacher only twice one at the back to school night and second the conference day. i found quail run more open and welcoming and the parents also more friendly. The principal and the admin staff are also very friendly and helpful.

    Quail run has an awesome staff and all that positive energy is truly reflected in the kids and their education.

    One of my children is at Hidden Hills and my other is at Quail Run. They both have fantastic teachers and are both strong academically but I'd have to say I prefer Quail Run. They have a more diverse "real world" population teachers and the PTA spend more time developing the whole child (Hidden Hills is more test score driven) and the vibe is much more welcoming open and friendly. The principal and PTA parents at Quail Run are much more in touch and involved with the families. I was also at Tuesday's PTA meeting and there was well over 300 parents and 15 teachers there. The principal and PTA really set a great tone there and it's contagious. The one drawback about Quail Run is all the construction that is going on but homes are needed there and it's temporary.

    My daughter has been there for 4 years. I have no other school to compare it to but I can say without a doubt that the teachers genuinely care about the students and are passionate about educating them. I think it comes from Ms. Lofin the principal because she and the teachers seem to have a wonderful bond and connection. They are real life heroes. The PTA and parent participation 2 years ago was very disappointing to say it kindly. A new group headed by a father took over the PTA last year and completely turned things around. I attended the PTA meeting a couple of nights ago and it was standing room only. I couldn't be happier or more pleased than I am at this school.

    I wish we had had a great experience at this school. We did not. We actually requested a transfer to a different school in the district and were relieved when we received it. The facility is beautiful the staff is lovely adn super nice but for some reason there was a complete lack of discipline and control. After numerous meetings with the school we had to remove our children from the situation.

    I have 2 children that go to 2 different elementary schools in the district. Due to unavailable space my younger got redirected to Quail Run which I was initially upset about because my older goes to our designated home school (I will not name) that is much closer to our home. Teachers at both schools are EXCELLENT however I've noticed a big difference between the schools in other areas. Quail Run has a much more welcoming caring and friendly feel. I feel like I m a part of an active community there. For example the PTA at Quail Run has done some different things to bring the parents and teachers together to help our children. There was over 100 parents at the last PTA meeting and there wasn t even a guest speaker. The average of the 3 meetings I ve been to so far has been around 100 compared to our home school PTA meeting where we usually get the same 20 to 25 parents that always show-up. From what other Quail run parents have told me there is a big difference this year compared to previous years when things weren t as good. Lucky for us. I d love for my older to transfer to Quail Run but I don t think they would allow it. I just hope that my younger can stay at Quail Run as long as possible.

    Quail Run was a great school for myself and my daughter Bailey. We were new to the school and to California so being a part of Quail Run we both met and formed many great relationships with some of the most wonderful people from faculty and staff to parents to kids. I also praise them for the education Bailey received. It's been invaluable and made her ready for middle school this year. Thanks to everyone. We really appreciate you all!
