California Standards Test (CST)

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.

    My two kids are attending at Don Julian for the first year they were at a private school before and they liked Don Julian they liked the teacher they have. I can say that all staff at Don Julian are working good. In discipline and high academics expectection are in the school goals for each child. I will liked to see more parents involved through the school activities.

    My daughter goes to Don Julian. I'm very dissapointed in the education she is receiving here...or should I say not. She doesn't seem to be at the level she should be. And the class is very crowded.

    Dear Everyone The years I spent in Don Julian Elementry were some of the best years of my life but since I have only been alive for 13 years I can't say much...or can I. I was at Don Julian since Pre-School. My teachers were Teacher Mary(or at least that's what my class mates and I called her) Ms.Hile Ms. Wade Mrs. Goldsworthy Mrs. Milton Mrs. Guzman Ms. Castellanos Mrs. Hodges Mr. London my 7th grade teacher and my basketball coach Mr. Flores who was also a great friend although he's a guy and alot older he still understood me Mr. Lusk Ms. Villaneda Mr. Almgren Deputy Pierre and all of my substitute teachers. I learned so much that will always stay in my memory forever and speaking of memory I also have so many memories that if you were to empty my head it would be full with alot of things that happened over the years at D.J (which felt like my second home). I had my first love there alot of my mistakes were made there too I have made some of the best friends there whom are still my friends and will remain in my heart I also learned at D.J some of life's easiet and hardest lessons that even some of the most respectable adults haven't ever even experienced. To tell you the truth I never wanted to leave for fear of change and leaving alot of things behind. But soon I learned that sometimes change can be a good thing. And as always my teachers have reminded me that I can always visit them whenever I get the chance. I will work as hard as I can to make all of them proud of me no matter what! I hope my letter has inspired at least one person because I have always been inspired at that school. Sincerely and Always Loving Vanessa Marie Morales
