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.

    The students have to wait to long to go onto school campus the gates used. To open at 7 19 7 20 the latest now there being opened at 7 30. That's to late for the kids and parents who should be at work by that time.

    This school has helped my kids a lot specially my son they care about their students and their future. My daughter was struggling with math and Ms Wai was great with her and now my daughter is doing way better. My son was having problems with attitude and Mr. Arroyo helped us so much. They really take their job serious and they show that they care. My daughter is graduating this year and she loved the school. I loved that kids at this school are not just a # they take their time to identify their special needs.

    I give this school thumbs up. A+ tops...I recently moved from the area so I had no choice but to take my kids out from this school. I miss this school so much and so do my kids. This school has the BEST teachers. I can only speak for Kinder and 1st grade Btrack. everyone in the staff is very nice. They encourage parent involved.
