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.

    My daughter is now in her third year and is in 8th grade. Each year I thought it would get better. I now know I should of transferred her to etiwanda schools when I had the chance because I can't wait for the 2 months to be over. She has 3 teachers that are helping designing the new testing "core" and are absent 2-3 times a week. She has sub teachers more than her assigned ones. She has been getting robbed of an education. Where is accountability for teachers? Who planned this bright idea to not have regular teachers there to teach? Home schooling offers more!!

    I went to this school as a student for 3 years it's the worst school I've ever been to so much violence in this school it's unbearable The teachers are great and dedicated to help you but the children discipline Is definitely unsatisfactory I've been terrorized in this school for 3 straight years by the kids there and so little done about it by staff don't go to this school.

    I hate this school. I'm in mr Titus and mrs bettgers class and it's the absolute worst. It's rated a 4 out of 10 please don't come to Fontana unified. They have nothing to offer your children.

    The Teaching staff as well as the Principal and the workers at Almeria are all very dedicated to making sure our children are in a safe and friendly atmosphere. I cannot be more pleased with my sons' learning! He is a 7th grader and he tells me that the Teachers find all the different ways to make sure that learning is fun! I can't say enough good about Almeria Middle School!

    My granddaughter goes there. She enjoys going to school and the teachers that she has in 6th grade.

    My son is in the 6th grade this school is way seriously overcrowded. Measures should have been taken sooner to construct Ruble Middle. North Fontana is growing at a rate that will overcrowd all schools in this area at a critical state. The Board of Ed. must see this at an emergency level. Also there are too many sub-teachers taken the place of my child's first three periods due to a maternity leave students are confused on assignments and homework.
