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.

    My 3 children have attended Keppel Academy and I am very satisfied and happy for having had the opportunity to have my children enrolled here. Teachers and administrators go above and beyond to make sure that children have the best learning opportunities to really understand the subjects.

    i'm a student at Keppel Academy. And my time at this school has changed my life. this school has a class witch is called A.V.I.D. And A.V.I.D has helped me improve not only academically but physically. My grades have improved and my life style has changed. BY using tutorials are sessions that give time for students to discuss class notes clarify challenging concepts review for tests and solve any troublesome homework problems students can learn and understand concepts. They also have binder checks witch helps you be organized witch is not just good for high school but college too. And at this school they will help find what you want to be in life and what college you want to go to. and all the staff and teachers are great. they are friendly helpful and kind. at this school its not just knowing someone by there first and last name its about knowing them witch means their struggles what they like to do... some teachers even go out to soccer games and even school sport tournaments. this school has changed my life and i'm sad sad to be leaving this year... i highly recondite for you to have your child go her you will not regret it. i love this school and you will to.

    As a parent of a student that attends Keepel Academy I really recomend this school . My child seemed discoraged (even though he's smart ) and I wanted him to transfer him in 2011-2012 (for 6th grade) but he didn't want to leave his friends. But I told him he could find more friends in this school ! Now we're glad he was accepted and he's in 7th grade . He's now very happy and he's grades show how much he has improved ) I believe the teaches staff and the principal are doing a great TEAM job !

    Keppel Academy the school where every student is as strong as their weakest link. At Keppel Academy if one person isn't succeeding we all fail. We all strive to be the best at everything we do. From Math P.E Social Studies Science Language Arts AVID to even being good supporters and friends. The Education at Keppel Academy is incredible and if I hadn t gone to Keppel Academy my grades would be terrible. Being a 3 year AVID student makes it even better because come in not knowing what to expect. Then things just continue to get better each and every day. The teachers there will always be there to support you. When I was having trouble with most of my classes AVID stepped in and played its part. The Tutorials Binder Checks Learning Logs and Cornell Notes keep you organized and they re also studying tools. The techniques the teachers have and the passion every staff member has to help US the Keppel Academy Cobras succeed makes this school the most absolutely PERFECT school to attend!!

    This is great new learning opportunity for everyone!All of the students are very excited to learn. the staff and teachers are exceptional.This school has a very challenging program that makes you think. The teachers are hard working on making sure that you completely understand the lesson. this middle school has very strong spirit and strong leadership.I have attended this school two years and i am completely satisfied. I have obtained more education in two years here than anwhere else.

    Keppel Academy has EXCEPTIONAL teachers principal and staff. They all have families of their own but show up to fundraising and sports events on their own time to show support because they care about our kids. I am not sure who enjoys going to school more the kids or the teachers! There is not just team spirit but also a school spirit here. I don't think my daughter could get a better elementary/middle school education anywhere else and being prepared at the same time to advance to high school and looking ultimately at attending college. One of my other children attended this school several years before its transformation and he never missed a day but he didn't get the skills or enthusiasm he really needed for high school. I wish he could have gone back to this school now things might be different for him.

    As a student who attends Keppel Academy this school is AMAZING and I probably wouldn't be doing as good in school with out all the help from all the teachers. The teachers will do almost anything they can to make sure the kids understand the lessons. The kindness of all the staff makes the school a great place to attend. Their unique and creative ways of teaching and reviewing really help to remember what is taught. The AVID techniques really work and the teachers make it even better. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't attended Keppel Academy. I'm very sad to be graduating Keppel Academy this year but I feel very satisfied with the education I will be leaving with. I love all the teachers there and I feel that if I ever am in need of advice about college I could come back to one of my former teachers and ask for it. Keppel Academy is the best school I have EVER attended so far. I definitely would recommend this school for your son/daughter to attend. Take from an actual student....this school is great!!!

    Great school staff and community. This school has really made great progress since its transformation from being Almondale to Keppel Academy. My daughter loves going to school there she'd rather be at school on weekends and during the summer whereas in the past she hated school. Really great job of the teachers with building relationships with their students.

    I am a student at almondale that has had a 4.0 all year and this school isn't the best I think the biggest problem is the students! A lot of them have no self control and lack common sense!even though the staff is exelent and set good examples I just wish that they would follow those examples and use them well!!
