Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

    My son is in tenth grade and is doing great for a kid with focus issues. There are several great teachers and the councilors are the best.There are a few old school teachers but over all my kid is really getting the schooling and help he needs. The principle looks like Jessie Ventura but really does cares.
