California Standards Test (CST)

In 2012-2013 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.

Community ratings & reviews

  • (1 year ago)

    All of my children have attended Crescent Elk Middle school.I have no complaints other than the occasional teacher showing political propaganda to my children.I swiftly went in to the office and complained as by law they're not allowed to do this.I never had to pull my children from the school as the incident was always handled "well" by school administrators. The neg reviews of this school are mostly from ridiculous rumor or over protective parents

    Many students do not feel safe here. Teachers are underpaid overworked and classes are overcrowded. Reducing the issues to overprotective parents and gossip is overlooking the very real problems of too many students and not enough staff.

    my childs school is awesome and she loves it so much that she hates when school is over!

  • (7 years ago)

    My son went to this school and had no problems at all. I now work there and the staff are dedicated to the students we have many different events that are ongoing throughout the year. Most of the hype about this school comes from over protective parents and gossip.

    This school some parents say it is not the best school but it is not in the school or teachers wether your child learns or not it is in the child.

    I was nervous about my child entering middle school but Crescent Elk has great teachers and principals. My daughter is doing very well better than fifth grade. She is in band and her band teacher volunteers to teach a community children's choir as well. The school sponsors sports events and dances. Overall Crescent Elk is doing a good job!
