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.

    I love the principal at this school and pretty much the whole office staff. They have really been involved with my student. They don't just blow students off. They work hard to make sure they are all doing well and are ok.

    This school is great I had a wonderful experience with the teachers as a parent. When I had a concern they will always reply ASAP. One day my child had a concern and the staff took care of it very professional.

    Hans Christensen is one of the best middle schools within the Menifee Union School District. They have great teachers/staff. And the Principal and Vice-Principal are very enthusiastic and involved. I like to see that kind of attitude its sets the tone for the school. My son was very happy at Hans Christensen Middle School. I wish he could have stayed another year.

    This is by far the most positive school environment I have ever seen at the middle school level and I have been teaching for over 15 years. Teachers not only love to teach their subject matter but actually care about their students and want to see them achieve. They work hard to create engaging lessons and collaborate regularly to help improve teaching strategies and to provide interventions for students who struggle. The principal is very hands-on and interacts with the students on a daily basis.

    Christensen is the best middle school in the area. The staff deals with problems immediately and has zero tolerance for bullying and inappropriate behavior. The principal has control of the school and the respect of the staff parents and students unlike most middle schools in the area. My kids have excelled and love going to school.

    HCMS is by FAR the BEST school my daughter has EVER attended. The Principle V.P. and teachers are all awesome. It's very obvious they care as much about our kids as much as we parents do.
