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 Love this School all of the teachers are spectacular and they understand you. If you are a parent saying this school is bad Or horrible. What is wrong with you? My grades have been Growing and growing each min If your child isn't getting the grades he or she wants don't blame it on the school. It's not the schools faults it's your child's Either they don't listen and Do what they are suppose too. even most kids who qualify to go to Whitney Came here. The Teachers always do the best to teach everyone . So don't get mad at them.

    What an amazing accomplishment. Improvements and jumps likie this do not happen over night and only come from highly motivated and dedicated teachers and administrators as well as determination of students.

    This school is great. They always let you know how your child is doing and how they can help. They have several after school programs and even Saturday school so that any kid can do good academically. Don't really know why its has a bad reputation maybe because of the years in the past or maybe its the location but I find this school great and helpful. The school is getting better by the years and has improved 100% from previous years. I would never doubt sending my child here it's an awesome school and I think the diversity they have is great.

    I'm a student in this school. I can say that this is a great school. The teachers are always helpful with everything and the classes are great too. we even had a Spanish class now. Though we always had a bad reputation bcuz we're in Hawaiian Gardens. I love being in this school and they help to be succesful..

    Glad to get my son out of this school! . If your child needs help then there is limited help not teacher 'friendly'.
