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 enjoyed my time attending this school. I came from charter oak high school and found myself having trouble with the students and staff there. from there I went to south hills high and I had the same problems. as soon as I enrolled at fairvalley I felt very welcome there. students and staff are ver respectful. I attended that school for two years. I caught up on credits finished early but still wanted to stay because that's how everyone wants to make u feel. I learned a lot from there more then any other school. I was planning on going back to a normal high school but decided not too because I loved it there. I wanna say thank you fairvalley!!! great high school memories!!!! class of 09!

    I am impressed by the level of commitment the staff have for helping the students. The principal teachers and support staff go out of their way to push students to be successful. If you student has to be in a continuation school this is the one to be in!
