Principal's Welcome message
On behalf of the entire Windemere Ranch Middle School community I would like to welcome you to our website. We are very proud of our school and our many accomplishments since our opening in August of 2005. Our students have consistently scored very high in the state’s STAR exams, our school’s API has consistently been well over 900, and we are a California Distinguished School. Based on our current API we are in the top one percent of all of the middle schools in the state. However, we are most proud of the nurturing and stimulating environment we have developed for our students that allows them to learn at high levels while enjoying themselves.
Here are some things that students said on the bullying survey of how students can help prevent bullying:
"When you see someone alone, comfort them and be their friend" -7th gr. girl
"Students can help stand up to the bullies and invite the people being excluded to join them"- 8th gr. girl
"They can be more friendly and accepting to others"- 6th gr. boy
Together, we can make a difference!
If you would like to see the results of the bullying survey from the last 2 years, please download it here.

CCSS! SBAC! What are we talking about? It's the new Common Core State Standards and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. The Common Core State Standards is a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts and mathematics that states voluntarily adopt. The standards are clear and concise and pertain to reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics in school.These standards have been adopted by 46 states already. Here's a link to the SRVUSD website on how our district is transitioning to these new standards. There is a wealth of information for students and parents.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is developing assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics that are designed to help prepare all students to graduate high school college- and career-ready. This year, our 8th grade students participated in the scientific pilot study of the SBAC test for mathematics. It was a great opportunity for our school and students to have access to what future state testing will look like. The Smarter Balanced Assessment will be replacing the STAR tests in 2014-2015. They have recently just released practice tests for the public to view. Here is the link to the practice tests.
When you go to this link, you will log in a Guest, you do not need a specific log in. On the next screen, choose the grade level you want to look at, then it will give you options of which test you would like to look at. I highly encourage you to go through the practice tests to become familiar with the new testing format. The tests will be taken on the computer and are vastly different than the STAR tests.
