These students are housed in four locations: Cerritos School, Hansen School, Holder School and Twila Reid School. The district size is about four square miles with each elementary school located within one mile of another.
Our most recent API similar school rankings, released by the California Department of Education, indicate an average ranking for all of our schools of 9.75 on a scale of 10. This ranking is reflective of the strong academic program which Savanna provides to all students.
Providing a learning environment and a strong academic program that focuses on reading, writing, and mathematics is the primary goal of the Savanna School District. Our reading program provides a balanced approach with integration of phonics and literature throughout all grade levels. Savanna's writing program provides students with a systematic structure for learning writing skills as well as regular writing assignments appropriate at each grade level. Math concepts and skills taught reflect those identified in the state standards. History/social science, science, health, physical education, music and art are integral parts of the K-6 educational program in Savanna School District. Technology is used to enhance the instructional program through the use of computers, CD-Rom and laser disc players.
Our size is one reason that Savanna has a family-like atmosphere among the faculty, support staff, students, parents and the community we serve. While our small size enables us to maintain this small town feel, our location provides students and staff access to a wide variety of resources within the community.
