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'm still not impressed with this school. I'm very disappointed with the principal and the counselors of this school. I stand by my first review of this school. A good administrative office can make or break your school. I was told by a counselor when I called they were too busy to return my phone calls. The principal has yet to return my phone calls or see my from last year. I put myself of the VIPS List I haven't received a phone call yet. LBUSD is really bad as well. I keep filling out the form the school board sends me and every year nothing. ABC school district hear I come.

    I am a student here at Lindsey and it has been an AMAZING experience. The environment is very friendly and the teachers are always there helping you. The best thing about this school is that it's an International Baccalaureate which means you learn new and different stuff followed by the IB learner's profile. Also do fun activities throughout the year so you don't want to miss out!

    I am a parent of a student that attends Perry Lindsey International Studies Magnet School. Knowing that my daughter is always happy to wake up in the morning to get to school I assume that all of the happenings that occur there are very appropriate positive and of course educational. This school strives hard to help their students success great achievements which is one of the many reasons I look forward to many other upcoming middle schoolers to attend here. I've heard from my nieces nephews and kids that Perry Lindsey may not be the best school but it is very great.

    I am a teacher at Perry Lindsey International Studies Magnet as a first year teacher in a Middle School and I can't believe how wonderful this school is. Our new Principal Ms. Dunn and all the Administrators Coaches Counselors Teachers Para-Professionals Office Staff Volunteers Custodians Plant Manager Supervision Parents/Guardians and last but not least our awesome Falcon Students are so supportive... making my experience so positive. I hope that you will be able to experience the fulfillment of pure joy of walking into our campus everyday. 'This' is why I came into teaching. I love coming to work every single day and I know 2008-2009 will be an outstanding year.
