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 lacks enough staff to overlook the kids during lunch. The principal's responce is frequently confused as he doesn't remember inscidents due to the overwhelming of children's capacity. if I had another choice of schoo i would transfer.

    We have a dual immersion program which has been a great benefit for both students & teachers. I am very proud of this program as it gives our students an advantage to learn in 2 languages! The teachers have been very dedicated & make this program a success.
