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.

    I moved my grand daugther here from south Los Angeles in 2005 to attend summer school and make up the grades she had failed in L.A. The support and love that Dr. Glassman and Ms Michelle Andeson gave her the first semester changed her life. Her academic and gift for learning was notice by all the staff at Mckinleyville High they are all a great part of the quality and spirit that shine in the students. Annayal is now a scholar and proud to be from the country (smile)

    The academic programs here are middling yet the staff is devoted and knowledgeable. The missing link here is not enough parent support and a lackluster community emphasis on education. There should be more extracurriculars especially in art dance music and theater. These kids need a way to express themselves outside the classroom and better help to shine within it.

    McKinleyville High School offers a wide variety of curricula experiences extra-curricular activities and choice. It is a very good school. My child's education is richer for the quality received. High in tech education science math English and foreign language. I am very satisfied with this excellent public school.

    This school offers a variety of excellent programs for all ranges of students. It has recently become an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school and has won a prestigeous EAST (Environmental And Spatial Technology) grant. It is also in the process of becoming an IBO school (International Baccalaureate). The administration is farsighted and innovative as are the teachers. Additionally the school district has one of the most advanced staff development programs in the county. This is the school of my choice in Humboldt County.
