Test Scores by grade


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 is poorly run with a high rate of turnover of staff and teachers.

    This school is not fully WASC accredited but the director will lie to your face and say that it is. She is moody and talks down to the students. She requires horse classes to graduate. Her poorly trained horse bit my student and sent her to the hospital. Dr. Thorpe took no responsibility. Terrible school!

    I think this school is great for anyone who has trouble in normal school. The teachers spend more time fixing your problems then dwelling on what you failed in in normal school. They contact your parents as necessary which could be good or bad. Overall It is a wonderful school.
