We recently received final CAASPP scores from the California Department of Education. Since RAFOS opened in 2001, the school has consistently exceeded state and county averages, making 2017 the 16th year in a row that RAFOS students have outperformed their counterparts throughout California. Congratulations to our students, staff, and families for excellent results, yet again!
