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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    Many caring staff. Principal does not understand minority people. We feel he talks down to us. The school needs plants and flowers.

    We are new comers. My son's teacher - Ms. Wong is very friendly and nice. She let my son feel comfortable. And then my son can learn very fast to keep up with his classmates. Thank you Mr. Wong!

    Garden Village is an exceptional school where the students are taught the basics as well as how to be good citizens. The teachers care about their students and want them to succeed. The teachers parents and staff work together for one common goal...the children. I am proud to say that all of my children attended Garden Village.
