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.

    Centerville is a wonderful school for those who want to be challenged and still have fun. As an eighth grader I am happy to say that at Centerville I was able to make many new friends and have great teachers that really know their material. The school really cares about the students and provides an educational and enjoyable experience for both 8th AND 7th graders!

    Centerville has been a great experience for my daughter. She is starting 8th grade with a tremendous attitude and full of optimism thanks to her enthusiastic teachers! The support staff is awesome! Math which was a struggle previously is no longer such thanks to a teacher who is very responsive answering student emails at night and engaging them in class! Bravo!

    My daughter goes to Centerville now and I first taught that she could go to Horner or Hopkins or any other school but then I gave it a chance and she and I both liked the school very much it has even been remodeled.

    Centerville is a very nice school. I would defenetly recemend it for your child because it is better then most other Jr. High Schools in Fremont CA.

    this school is the best jr. high ever! i like that it doesnt pressure kids to do great in there school work but it still encourage them to study! although the kids should think more about syudying and not boys or girls!

    This school has so much balance. Much better than being in Parkmont. Teachers are nicer and more dedicated. Not to much homework.

    I have two children currently at Centerville along with one cousin and three cousins recently graduated and all have had great experiences. The Vice Principle is great the counselor is phenomenal and although some of the teachers are a little out of the box they are all great hearted.

    I guess the system is ran pretty well. However im tired of all the jerks who think they are cool because they can say rude insults about anyone but themselves (heaven forbid someone wears pants that actually fit!). Almost every week it seems there is some kind of gang fight. But the pizza is good.

    Centerville was a great experience for my daughter from the teachers guidance councilors and both the principle and vice principle. very outstanding place for kids to attend before they go off to high school.

    After being at Parkmont Centerville has been great especially the Principal. He is truly concerned about the mental well being of the students. How refreshing! The problems we've had with a couple of teachers were beyond the principal's remedy. The local Teacher's Union is too strong and keeps the district from cleaning up bad teacher behavior. We're looking for a more dedicated District.

    This is a good school. Teachers seem genuinely concerned about the students. The campus has recently be remodeled and really looks great.
