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.

    THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE. I attended myself and found it lacking in every way. Bullying by students AND teachers disgusting campus and teachers who couldn't care less. I have one after lunch that would show up 10 15 30 minuets into the class. Sometimes not at all! Judging by the review below things haven't changed since 2001.

    This is one of the WORST schools I have ever dealt with. There is a huge bullying problem and gang problem. The administration claims the school is anti-bully and it's not tolerated by any means. It's a complete untruth! When a parent calls the school to discuss a bully problem they just ask what do you want us to do about it? This school is HORRIBLE!! It has a terrible reputation and I would NEVER send another child there! Drugs are also another problem at this school. If you can help it do NOT send your child to Los Arboles in Marina CA. Or if you do have fun with the drugs bullies and gangs.

    I think there should be more after school academic programs for in the subjects the kids need help in the most. There should be more extracurricular activitys like music and sports.

    My son went there last year. It is a great school. The staff is very caring. They work with the students & parents as one. They are there for our kids! I like the fact that they do not tolerate vilance of any kind including just name calling also no cell phones allowed during school good idea less destractions. A great place for your child to go to school. If you show up during the day the staff in the office will go out of thier way to help! Great job everyone at Los Arboles!
