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.

    This school has served my ninth grader well after he was struggling at the traditional high school. There is structure but also enough flexibility to make the program individualized for each student.

    My child had a hard time in public school socially. We chose Lewis School to get away from the social distractions and concentrate on academics. Lewis School is very strict academically. They seem to give more school work than what was given in public school due to the at home time frame. It was a great spring board for us to move into homeschooling because it was so structured and strict with due dates. We enjoyed working with Mr. Lee. The expectations were always known and we never doubted our ability to achieve them.
