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.

    I am admittedly the "hover mother" of all "hover mother"s so before the school year began I sat down with my soon-to-be-kindergartner's teacher and principal (seperately) and questioned them about safety procedures emergency protocol how they would keep me child safe etc. Well my husband noticed on the second day of school that they were not following protocol (or what they told us was protocol) and ended up losing my child between the time he was left in their care in the cafeteria and time school began. They were not even AWARE he was in the wrong classroom until recess when he saw his regular teacher.. she had no idea he was even on campus. The school didn't notify me until I picked him up at the end of the day and continually dismissed how WRONG the entire situation was. I immediately pulled my child from the school. I would NEVER recommend a parent sending their child to this school. The children simply are not safe there.

    This school has got magor problems!!The office staff can't seem to remember where peoples children are when parents call in.The yard duty staff are rude and very snappy towards the parents and students especially during breakfast. You should really think about what it takes to be a great school because right now you have failed!!!!

    I have to children that go to Greer. One is in first grade and the other is in fifth. My first grader is very bright and his kindergarten teacher did a very good job of challenging him...my fifth grader is very strong in some areas while weak in others and her fourth grade teacher at Greer scheduled meetings with supporting staff at Greer so we could discuss ways to support our daughter at home...they also had several family activity nights throughout the year and a talent contest. My children really enjoy going to Greer.

    Hi My name is Rebecca. I have 4 wonderful children two of wich are special needs kids. One has Dislexia the other has Epilepsy. My older two were in the 3rd and 4th grade I think when we moved in this area and my 3rd born was in 1st grade and my youngest wasn't in school yet...he is now in the 2nd grade...anyway when I first enrolled them in Greer I was told by a few people whom lived near me that this school rated the lowest on test scores and so on...and ya know I put them in this school anyway and I am glad I did...I think every school has wonderful loving hardworking teachers that give a darn..but this school...I would have to say has the best! My kids have all come a long way since going to Greer! Thanks teachers! -Rebecca
