A Message From the Principal

Welcome to Standiford! We are proud to be a Leader in Me School. Our students are being empowered to become leaders of their learning and social interactions. They set goals, track their own progress, and celebrate their successes. Our school is made up of a diverse population of learners and each one is supported to our fullest ability.

Our teachers focus on the needs of the whole student. We focus student by student and skill by skill to make certain students are receiving all that they need to be successful leaders and learners. Many of the teachers at our site run student action teams such as: Memory Makers, Advertising Agency, Standiford is 4tunate, and Student Lighthouse. These student teams are a way for our students to shine and our teachers to enhance the leadership process on our campus.

Standiford is also home to the Sylvan School District GATE program. Our students who particpate in this program follow the California State Standards as well as the GATE Standards of Depth, Complexity, Acceleration, and Novelty. Students across the district take the GATE assessment in 2nd grade and, if they qualify, move to Standiford in the third grade.

Many great things happen at Standiford. Great truly happens here because we are a Jawsome Standiford family!

Warm regards,

Mrs. Amber Wethern
