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 have had all 4 of my children attend FRCS and have been very happy with it. It is a small-town environment with alot less restriction than the school we were assigned to in Chico. It has some room for improvement with academic expectations but the people and the 'feel' of the school make up for it.

    I have two kids in Forest Ranch Charter school and it is a school based on the individual needs of children. There are smaller class sizes with parent helpers that are constantly challenging the children in academics and useful life skills that aren't normally taught in public schools. The community supports the progress of the school and the school is ran by the community and parents. This school is everything I want a school to be for my children and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to better the overall education and well being of your child.
