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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    I like how they are teaching the child get into better career the teacher are on track how they are doing and best and more is the communication between parent and staff

    I am currently assigned to Le Conte as a displaced teacher. I find the staff to be extremely supportive and professional the students to be respectful and eager to learn and the community members on campus to be friendly and active. All Lausd schools need more funding so I am hoping with that being said that Le Conte will get upgraded technology soon to further support their great scholars. I am lucky to be at Le Conte learning that all schools are NOT the same...Some are striving to make constant improvement - Le Conte is doing that. If I had a child myself I would be very comfortable sending them to Le Conte..and you know how picky we teachers can be..

    Our daughter started going to this school in September. The SAS program has had a huge influence on our 8th grader. The teachers and staff are very caring and although she had difficulty adjusting to the larger campus and new curriculum everyone here has been extremely helpful. 5 stars and a smile from this family.
