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 school is full of BAD INFLUENCES. The student here are bad and most dont care about their education. I was a student there for 2 years and i was horrible. Thats why i go to Rancho Cucamonga schools.

    this school used to be so excellent when they used to have the GATE program installed but now they completely removed it from here. I feel they should have put more emphasis in it because that program really helped me significantly after i moved on from there. The teachers were always involved and had challenging activities throughout. sad to say now its just like any poor mess of a school

    My son attened this school and was bullied for the entie year. He was the only student of his race in his classes and when we brought the issues up with teachers counsrlors and pricipals nothing happened. Thank goodness this school was only an option for us we do not live in this school bounderies. The academics were ok but no assignments were ever returned back to my son. If you have a choice think twice before sending your child there.

    The teachers are great and really push the students to try to do their best. The school overall is very good and most of the students recieve classes high in education. Their test scores are also pretty good compared to other schools. I'm in eighth grade currently attending this school and am taking Geometry and Physics and Astronomy Prep.

    Very little parent involvement. Need for additional security... Need for extracurricular activities. Little or no principal involvement. Need for student incentives awards rewards.
