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.

    Hi I am a student of Jones Jr High School. I have to say this is a school I really enjoy and the teachers are great. They really help when I am in need of help. This school is really fun and the teachers make learning fun. To bad this school only teaches 7 and 8 grade. I would really love to be here for high school to. I wish I would never have to go to anyother school except Jones.
