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.

    This is a great place for students to get a fresh starch from caring teachers and staff!

    This school is just amazing. Everyone always thinks bad about it before they even go there or hear about it but that's not even the case. This school is just great. The teachers are super supportive and they'll give you their own time and give you all the help you need in class. The teachers here are REAL teachers. If only they had teachers like this in the regular schools. It's really cool how all the staff cares about the students a whole lot. I came here my junior year missing about 40 credits and now I'm caught up. I don't even plan on moving back to my comprehensive high school.

    if i could i wouldn't graduate and stay there forever. i love this school. all the teachers always give you there time no matter how much you need. they always go out of there way to help you. if you ever needed anything they would give it to you. no matter if it was just somebody to listen to you all the way up to giving you a binder and pencils if you couldn't afford one. i would fail regular high school all over again to go to valley. they make sure that going to college is chiseled into your head.

    I was a part of the graduating class of 2000. Attending Valley High school was the best choice I have ever made. The whole teacher facilty was so supportive and understanding of everything going on in my life and no matter what happened they always believed in me so much in fact they made me be able to believe in myself. Thank you to all the teachers at Valley High School you really are the best.

    I attended Valley High School and had the opportunity to go back to SPHS but I loved this school I felt an emotional attachment when i left. I was a class speaker and i still go visit all my teachers. They all were my inspiration to do better and prove everyone else wrong about our school my Family.

    I was a student at Valley High School. I can only say that I got accepted to UCLA San Diego State University and San Jose University. So you be the judge. The teachers are great!!! They know its hard to get a good education so they try their best to make sure we get the best possible. Keep up the good work Valley!!!
