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.

    Rosemont Middle School is an exceptional school! I have had nothing but positive experiences with the administrators office staff and teachers. Student issues are handled quickly and with the greatest of care for the well being of all students involved. Yes this is a large campus with a lot of students but it would be difficult to find a school whose staff cares more for their students.

    Rosemont is wonderful school. My children have had a positive experience with faculty students and administration. Highly recommended!!

    I'd read glowing reviews about Rosemont but I'm still on the fence about it. It's extremely large and kids can get lost in the crowd; such a change from my child's elementary school where everyone knew him. There are committed and caring teachers yet virtually no time for individual attention or support; and the office staff always seem busy and not overly welcoming to parents. Bullying does happen (routinely according to my son) and I was underwhelmed by the administration's response to it. Definitely not a good fit for every student.

    Rosemont offers a diverse range of intellectually challenging opportunities for students across the academic spectrum. The fact that this non "Title One" school is able to provide such a varied range of extra curricular activities ranging from sports music arts robotics etc. at minimal or no cost to the students and have state of the art technology available is a testament to the outstanding advocacy of the Principal on behalf of the students. Faculty/staff take the time to actually get to know families and vest themselves in the well being of the students. Assistant Principals do double duty putting in endless hours after school and assisting at community events. As a special Ed parent I feel blessed to have Counselors and a Resource Specialist who encourage personal growth and support uniqueness. Rosemont under Mr. Terry Parker offers an amazing wood shop program that offers kids an experience that simply does not exist in public education any longer. Mr. Rod Yonkers passionately enjoys 12 hour days as Maestro of the various bands orchestras and ensembles and leads Rosemont in festivals across the south land. Office administrative staff lovingly nurture kids of all ages!

    I've had two kids graduate from Rosemont with no problem at all. There are many great teachers who really care! Math teachers take turns offering free after-school tutoring for anyone who wants it. My kids are now excelling at CV High School. As for parent involvement...they're in middle school - it's time to step back a little )

    The administration is fenomenal in demonstrating true care for their students. They keep parents well informed on school AND neighborhood issues. The teachers are top notch. The facilities are clean and the classrooms well stocked. A wonderful environment arr around.

    Rosemont Rocks! It Is a place for kids to grow up to be independent citizens. The teachers are amazing and care deeply about their students. The principal is loved by the kids because she works hard to make a positive difference in their lives. She encourages them to participate In clubs activities and afterschool sports. For a middle school it is just outstanding!

    Thank you Rosemont for looking out for the best interest of all kids. It was inspiring to see so many kids supporting their communtiy today. Rosemont students were out in full force. As a member of this community I am proud to see our youth in action making a difference.

    I have two children that had great success at Rosemont Middle School. I have to admit I was nervous as a parent when my oldest was about to start middle school. We didn't know what to expect. It's a scary transition for both children and parents. When Chris my oldest came home the first day with enthusiasm my husband and I were relieved. It turned out to be a great experience scholastically and socially for both my boys. The teachers have been engaging and supportive. Both my boys really enjoyed there classes and were motivated to learn. Both developed a great circle of friends that are really great kids. We found there to be a nice sense of community amongst the student body and the teachers. The office staff were also very friendly and helpful. There was a new principal who I really like; she genuinely seams to want the best for all students. My family had a great four years apart of Rosemont Middle School which we will always hold with high rearguard.

    A number of my friends' kids have just been promoted to 9th grade. They all feel that their children had an excellent education at Rosemont. The staff is very supportive and there are some great after-school programs that build self esteem and leadership skills.

    I had two children attend Rosemont ten years apart and both of them had bad experiences. Both of them are identified gifted and both had excellent elementary school experiences. Their teachers at Rosemont were uninspiring in some cases downright negative.

    This school did not offer the best experience for me. there were a lot of fights and the Vice-principals were not very understanding. the rules were very restricting on personal expression. i was put into only a few advanced placement classes so i was bored in most of my classes and i got the same elective over and over. there is not a lot of variety in the classes and they don't have enough challenging classes for someone like me. only when i got to cv was i really challenged in my classes. and rosemont did not adequately prepare my for high school.

    Our teachers work hard to encourage students to focus on academic goals.

    My son has special needs and we definitely had to keep in touch with all of this teachers to be sure his accommodations were met. My daughter has done pretty well. The school could do a better job if it weren't so crowded. We could use another middle school in the area.

    The principal adn Vice-Principal were understanding and extremely effective in optimizing my sons performance. He went from a negative-attention stand out to an award winning student in 2 years.

    This school is terrible!!I went to this school but moved.The teachers are horrible!!They scream at the kids alot and theres always racism and fights.The only good thing about this school is the principal.Do not send your child to this school!!

    Rosemont has held up very well overall as a great school all these years which is especially difficult with middle school aged students. Our second son has adjusted well to Rosemont and our older son misses it. Besides the great teachers and attentive new principal are I can never get over the fact how clean this school is! We are so fortunate and lucky to have such an overall first rate school for our children to attend. And I appreciate when a problem does arise it's dealt with and resolved.

    Rosemont does a decent job for the size of the student population. The area could probably support another Middle School.

    It looks like Rosemont has not changed since reading the reviews dating back to 2004. The racial issues still persist and the staff ARE 'snooty'. THis year I decided to homeschool my 8th grader and I am confident he will learn more in 1 month than in the entire year at Rosemont.

    There are alot of faualty issues that need addressing. Don't always have the students' best interest in mind.
