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.

    Diamond Valley school combines high academic expectations with an atmosphere of caring and interpersonal attention that children. The focus is on the positive at all times.

    Diamond Valley is an excellent school with low teacher to student ratios and high expectations for academics as well as personal responsibility. Located in an alpine/high desert locale the small community adds to a very personal atmosphere. I have two children enrolled in 5th and 6th grades. They enjoy the close relationships with their teachers and their performance is reflected in their grades and self-confidence. I would recommend this school highly.
