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'm a student and let me tell you this school may look nice on the outside but it's pretty bad on the inside. Many teachers don't teach very well if at all. Teachers definitely play favorites. This school has many cliques so its VERY hard socially if you're a new kid like I was sophomore year. The reason I didn't give it one star is because it looks nice and they seems to keep it fairly clean.

    As a former student I miss East so much. I was at Clovis East for 3 years and while it does have its ups and downs it is a lot better than my current school. The dress code is strict but for the good of the students. 80% of my teachers were amazing. It is always up to the student to put in the work and if you don't do it you will obviously fail. The teachers give you what you need and then it's all up to you. The campus is beautiful and you can find friends in all corners. While there are always bad parts like in any school I believe that this was a great school to attend.

    Not to my expectations. A couple of my kid's teachers don't teach. If you care about your child's education this is not the school for your child. Counselors don't help you or the student. They're always out of their office when my kid goes to see them. Horrible...will not be continuing with my other kids.

    Clovis East has beautifully kept grounds and is one of the only schools in Clovis with a complete agricultural farm on campus. Academics are priority and students are given the resources necessary to excel. Teachers are great with parent communication and availability. Student dress-code and campus rules are strictly enforced and (in my opinion) overly so. Safety issues are one thing and certainly encouraged however I have received phone calls for such concerns as hugs. Strange indeed.

    This school is way to strict with it's dress code. I get it's for the safety of the students but they push it to much. It sucks going to a school everyday thinking your going to get in trouble for your jeans having a tiny hole in them or your hair a centimeter below your eyebrows little stuff like that. Overall tho the school safety is good and a few teachers care about the students.

    CEHS is an OKAY school. But as a parent that wants best for there kids should reconsider. My son was made fun of because of the fact he was white with blond hair. CWHS or BHS is a first.

    My school always encourages a sense of community. The staff is wonderful and they seem more like friends than teachers sometimes. There are amazing opportunities that prepare us for the future at every level including ROP and CART classes. The support for extracurricular activities are wonderful. I always feel safe when I'm there.

    I am a former student of Clovis East and i enjoyed every mintue being there. I miss going to school there. The Student body is like a family. I was very invovled with all the activitys there and it made high school so much better. If i ever asked for help from a teacher i got it. I love that school and everything about it. THe school has passion the sports team is amazing the band is wonderfull. The student councill members do everything they can to make the students high school days more fun. I would reccommend Clovis East any day.

    CEHS is an okay school. Many of the students are rude and the staff is overly-strict with dress code and often act like they don't care. The environment and vibe that the students give is isn't a comfortable one due to the fact the East is such a stereotypical school. There are few great teachers there and as a student you should be extremely grateful if you get one. Overall East is not the high school for you if you plan on being with several well-mannered students who appreciate education.

    This is a good high school with good sports programs and ok teachers for most classes but what is really great is the Ag teachers. We have one of the best farms in the nation! The ag teachers are great they actually care about you in and out of the classes. This is probably the main reason I have not dropped out of school. I thought about it but decided to stay for the FFA stuff.

    Clovis East is the best school out their.. i love this school

  • (7 years ago)

    Terrible school... MOST teachers could care less althoguh I'm sure thr reaeson is because parents do not teach their children to respect than the teachers are so sick of the attidude they take it out on all of the students. I went to this school because it wasnew and I thoguht I wouldget a better education. Well I didn't! Only good thing WAS with Eben. He kept all the different clicks friends with eachother. Only bad thing about him was he was much too leniant with dressw code. Which was geat when Mr. Martinez came in but tht was when everyone started hating eachother.

    I attended this school all 4 years of my high school education....it was a great school

    CEHS has the lowest test scores of any CUSD high school. It has lots of AP courses and good facilities. Campus safety is very good. There are many outstanding teachers especially in science and history. The language arts department and math are not as strong. Athletics are emphasized and athletic facilities are primo while the library is mediocre. Dress code is strict. Technology is an issue. Overall quality is acceptable but not excellent.

    Academic programs are great. The school mostly focuses on English Language Learners and those who are socially disadvantaged. Not a good school for high achievers or those who strive for above average. Most parents have a 'that's good enough' attitude and don't encourage students to look towards college.

    I am an allumni of Clovis East my siblings are also attenting this school. As one of the first graduating classes. The principal Mr. Eben is a wonderful leader and a great visionary he is well liked by staff and students. As for school departments from my experience The preforming arts is outstanding. I can personally vouch for the choirs Dan Bishop has in less than 2 years he has taken a very new program and created a powerhouse. At competitions we are always one of the best depending on the competition command preformance has been won several times. On another note the Ag. department is awesome! We have the best facicities better than most universities. The staff is very knowlegable dedicated and more than qualified to teach. The science courses they offer are highly reccomended.

    Clovis East has a great academic program. They have teachers that go the extra mile to help every student. Activites and sports program is great. I think that there are alot of parent involvement in all aspects of the program.

    I feel Clovis East is a GREAT school...and is on it's way to a great future. Whenever I had a situation regarding my sons academic or athletic progress I have always been able to speak with an administrator. And...the Principal and Deputy Dean are always available if needed. CE is a young school and I believe they have done a great job so far. I recently moved to the Clovis High area and am currently trying to get interdistrict transfers for all my boys...so that they can attend this school in the future. Great Job...'CE' staff! Keep up the good work. NO...school is perfect.

    Too much of a party school in my opinion. I really feel a majority of the students are more driven. Try schools like Buchanan if you want a great student population. I'm not sure why this school is like this they are definatley not lacking in faculty. When I attended this school I had some of the best teachers in my life. I just found it hard to focus due to no one around me encouraging me.
