Student safety is our number one concern. In an effort to ensure a safe environment for our students, ALL VISITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE, SIGN IN, AND WEAR A VISITOR’S BADGE WHILE ON CAMPUS. Please do not sign out ahead of time. This is for your safety. All staff is trained to question any adult they see on campus during school hours without a visitor’s badge. This is for the protection of your student. Please help us keep our children safe by following these guidelines.
Beginning with the 2013–14 school year, CAASPP became the new student assessment system in California, replacing the Standardized Testing and Reporting system (STAR).This May our students in grades 3-6 took the computer adaptive tests in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. Overall scores are reported within one of four levels: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded. Majority of our students met or exceeded standards in both ELA and Math, way to go MSJE!
