California Standards Test (CST)

In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    This school is horrible! I was enrolled at this school for one whole day to experience a disaster. Firstly the school is rather small. I didnt see any sort of bleachers on the football field. The track is dirt. There isn't even a cafeteria. Classes are limited. There is no diversity. One teacher had to explain the lesson in Spanish. In math there wasnt enough chairs nor books. The teacher ended up giving me a CD! There's no nutrition & not enough time to get to class. The sports are bad. The students are faaaar below standards. I would NOT at any circumstances recommend Savanna High School.

    My son is now a Junior and taking advanced classes. Our families' experience has been very positive. Very good school if your child is willing to invest in themselves.

    I attended Savanna from 2003-2007 and loved it. I had great friends finally dated my Jr. High crush and now on our way to getting married had amazing teachers that were always willing to help and I felt safe every day. I now work for AUHSD and have been able to go to other high schools in the district and none of them come close to how great Savanna was. All the other schools I've been at the staff is stuck up and the kids are no better. I have had to opportunity to work at Savanna this past yr and loved it. Not only were the staff awesome when I was a student but they are just as great as co-workers. The only sad part is the staff puts all this work into caring and the kids each yr stop caring more.

    Most of the teachers at Savanna high school are really good teachers and they care. It's just some students don't care so we don't have the greatest test scores. But the students are all really friendly and open and I've had a really great experience.

    The school is very caring they are very concerned about the safety and comfort of students. There a plenty of low-cost or free programs available on campus for your child to recieve help. The counselours are more concerned with every student and their grades than any school I have seen. YOu can definently count on this school. From the teachers to the staff security Everyone is willing to help.

    Most teachers care about the students and their education. (I had great teachers) Principal is strict but good intentions and good results. ASB is great. A lot of student involvement in the past year which led to great school spirit. Parent involvement is lacking greatly. The school is safe and very diverse. A lot of extracurricular activities. Overall great school. Comment to one of the comments you can't have a specific time for sports. it depends on the game and distance the team has to travel. senior pictures are not done by the school and you are not required to buy them.

    Savanna was a laid back high school. A new principal came into play and is a bit mroe strict than last year. Great school.

  • (9 years ago)

    Students and teachers are awesome and care about community. Administration lacks authority control and ownership.

  • (11 years ago)
