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.

    wow I can not say enough great things about Redwood. If you're in a rush and can only read one review PLEASE READ THIS ONE. I had never been a "school person" growing up and if it weren't for the teachers at Redwood I would have failed out of high school sophomore year. I am not being dramatic. I was immature and didn't understand the value of knowledge. The teachers pushed me to my full potential and made me realize how important it is to study and apply yourself. Because of them I am now on scholarship at a 4 year University and am graduating a semester early. Redwood changed my life and opened my eyes up to the importance of school. Not only that but the sport and art programs are superb! I am so fortunate to have gone here. If I had gone to any other high school I would probably not be where I am today. THANK YOU REDWOOD!

    Redwood is a school that cares about every student the students like to say that Redwood is like a family that cares and helps the kids find and express their talents.

    Redwood High School is a continuation school and was when I went as well. You will see a range of people from teenage mothers who are blessed to have a supportive school that encourages and teaches parenting to folks who are super smart or not so smart. The school will identify where there is a weakness to help stregthen it. I respect the time and effort the faculty gives each student. It is where I first learned that yelling doesn't mean your point will get accross. One of the biggest things I learned from this school is how to be financially responsible how to manage money and how to effectivly communicate needs without blowing up. A high percent of the kids that attend the school either come from broken homes or a broken past. Redwood acknowledges this fact and works in a positive sense to bring everyone up to speed.

    Two of my daughters attended Redwood High and I consider it one of the best schools on the Peninsula. As my youngest daughter told me after her first week Mom the second day I went to school the teachers actually remembered my name. Both girls graduated one with scholarships and neither would have graduated from Sequoia mainly because of class size and the impersonal involvement of teachers. My youngest now works at Redwood High and won honors for two years running from the school district. If your child is not run of the mill and needs that extra acknowledgement try Redwood.
