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.

    I am a former student of ramona jr high it has been 3 years since I left the school and I still wish I could go back. It was a great experience to be there and I recommend sending you child there especially because they have a new sports program. The school has a wonderful staff that'll help with anything needed. I honestly loved going to school.

    Ramona is one of the middle school with a great reputation among the valley. The students are hard working as is the teachers.

    My son is a 7th grader at Ramona and he loves it. The teachers are very dedicated and that make all the difference. When ever he has a question there is always a teacher with the time to help even after school.

    I'm an eighth grader at this school currently. The principal is really funny and I'm pretty sure just about everyone likes him. The teachers are really dedicated and most of the kids are nice. If you were going to choose one out of all the schools in the Chino Valley Unified School District I would definitely choose this one.

    I sent my son to this school and he commented on the excellent teacher involvement. My other son went to a different school and said and I qoute 'my school isn't half as good as this one I wish I went here...'

    This is such a great school. The principal as well as the office staff really care about the students and parents. Teacher really go the extra mile and even tutor after school as needed. My daughter has had a wonderful experience at this school. If you have an opportunity to send your kid here - please do!

    I used to be a teacher at Ramona and saw nothing but dedicated energetic teaching going on including mine. A lacadasical administration not withstanding these teachers did what they could whenever they could. It was an honor to be among them in the computer lab.

    I'm really impressed with the commitment of the principal and vice principal. They have and show a real caring attitude for the children and the district.

    It's very difficult to say anything highly about this school. This is my daughter's first year at this school. My daughter is very disappointed because this school does not have any girls athletics team. I'm also disappointed with some of the teachers who use sarcasm against the students. I hope this kind does not conitnue in the future.
