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 school is Wesport Heights Elementary School. It's a great school. We just received IPads for our kids and my child is already learning multiplication tables in the 1st grade. What I like about this school is that it focuses on polite speech and treating others like you like to be treated. My child learns about mammals and different kinds of reptiles and experiment by making ice cream. They just make it so fun to learn. Nami Roberts
