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 am not at all satisfied with this school. My son has been attending since Kindergarten and he is now in first grade. The teachers didn't communicate well with me. I was not informed when my son got an award for being a reader of the month. I was very disappointed because I would want to go to the award assembly and be there for him. I have a long list of complaints but not going to type them all here. I am working on finding a way to transfer him.

    Our daughter goes to Glen View and she loves it there. The teachers are always there to help her if she has a question. The staff is always keeping the parents informed of what is going on at school.

    My son has been at Glen View for five years and my younger one started this year. I am very pleased with the teaching staff at all levels as well as the new principle. My husband and I were told when we moved here that this was a 'bad' school but have seen nothing either in the test scores or the administration to lend any credibility to that statement. 5 stars for Glen View!
