Nestle Avenue Elementary

5060 Nestle Ave., Tarzana, 91356

A most effective school, according to The Times “value-added” analysis.

Each school’s rating was based on the performance of all students who took the California Standards Tests in math and English between 2003-04 to 2009-10. Value-added measures the difference between the expected progress of the student body and its actual performance. It is designed to estimate what the school contributes to students’ learning. By contrast, the state’s Academic Performance Index measures students’ achievement level, which is tied closely to students’ socio-economic background.
