Test Scores by grade


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 great my daughter was dropped one month before graduation from AHS becuse she was 35 credits short. Luckily she was referred to this program who in a couple of weeks she was able to earn her high school diploma now she is preparing to attend community college! Im so glad Mr. Axtell was there to give the kids that tough love they really need and push them to complete the program!!

    It gives students who are unable to function in a regular high school environment a second chance to obtain an education.
