We’re extremely proud of our students and staff and what they accomplish every day in the classroom. We’re also proud of the academic opportunities we provide to all students. However, our Twin Rivers neighborhood schools need basic health and safety improvements. Many of them are 50 to 80 years old with deteriorating classrooms, plumbing, leaky roofs, potentially faulty electrical systems, and aging restrooms that need to be repaired.

Let us know what your priorities are for local schools by completing the following Parent/Community Survey. Your views are important to us.





The following information is brought to you by Teachers for Healthy Kids - a project of the California Teachers Association

Common Core Standards

The Common Core Standards are the new standards that students will encounter in K-12 schools. They provide a consistent and clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.
