    "I've been an elementary educator for 20 years. I've seen the best and worst in teachers and schools. This school is lackluster. Sitting on top of the hill; the country club feeds in, but if you have enough money to live in the country club - get your kids to a private academy or take them up to Orange Crest. The principal is good at covering up for lousy teachers, and she fills her office with caricatures of all the Evil Queens from Disney - weird. They claim their lackluster API is due to bussing from "down the hill" Yep, blame it on the poor brown kids! But why do 100% Title-1 schools (mine included) do better than the Country Club School? There's a few amazing teachers at this school, and there are a few that I wouldn't call teachers at all - technicians maybe, but not educators. A 30 year teacher was walked off this campus and disappeared? Nothing told to parents? Whaaaa!!!??? My son's 6th grade was a complete waste of a year of education. If I hadn't prepared my son for CST's he wouldn't have had much prep at all. As a 20 year educator I have seen lots of "shuffle the lemons" and this place is the epitome of that. A complete disgrace for the demographics."

    "Average school in a very nice neighborhood. Unfortunately, "average" in California isn't exactly bragging anymore. Located in an older community, as the neighborhood aged, more students were bused in. The more kids bused in, the greater strain on the school's resources. As the school started to slide, concerned parents moved/transferred/stayed away etc. - a vicious cycle. Many went to private schools or out to Lake Matthews/Orangecrest. Now, with the housing crisis, renters instead of buyers are entering the neighborhood. The slide will continue, and the Great School ratings and test scores certainly point that way. My son went there in 2009/2010 and it was a pretty traumatic experience. We transferred after a year. The administration treated us with absolute indifference....as if we had no other options. And so, we left ... along with many others. Eventually, the neighborhood will turn over and the working middle class will return, at which point, given the advantages of the location, the school will begin its return to "above average"...for California public schools."
