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 so sad to see this program go ! It was such a wonderful addition to my life and honestly I wouldnt of been able to graduate from a traditional highschool some students aren't cut out for that. and I wasn't ! This program allowed me to graduate a year early and I even started college early ! Thank you so much for all the love and support to eveyone at Oak Knoll ! Especially Mrs. Frantz <3

    Five out of Five Stars for School and Staff. My son had Diane Wilcox for a teacher last semster and gave her unconditional compliments. He has only spoken highly of two teachers in the last 10 grades and Ms. Wilcox was one of the two. This school has provide the educational base for 5 of my 6 children with 4 of the 5 graduating from Oak Knoll in the last fifteen years. It has always been my pleasure to endorse this fine school.

    Excellent School! The teachers are amazing they did everything in thier power to make my four years in high school worth wild! You need to be self motivated and determined to do your best!. This school offered me many different ways to complete assignments and offered many different studying classes where I could learn how to deal with my math problems. They also offered oppertunities to socialize in extra cricular activities such as cooking classes art classes and field trips. This is truely an amazing school and doesnt get the praise their teachers truely deserve.
