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.

    Menifee Valley Middle School has some of the best teachers in the district. My daughter was a student at Bell Mountain for a little over a year prior to attending Menifee Valley Middle School. Although Bell Mountain is a prettier newer school the staff and curriculum at Menifee Valley are superior. There are some great teachers at Bell Mountain but Menifee Valley has a highly motivated principal and a multitude of extremely knowledgeable teachers who actually love teaching. All of this has poitivey influenced my daughter's interest in school and love for learning. Lastly the office staff has always been courteous and respectful towards my daughter and me.

    It has provided my child an opportunity to grow in such a short time. The school curriculum and teachers provides a way in which is structured for her to keep engaged in her school activities and not loose interest in learning each day.

    I went to MVMS in the late 1980's and both of my children go there now. It has an established reputation that it continues to live up to each and every day. The teachers are patient knowledgable and consistent with the children. There are many extra-curricular programs that all are encouraged to participate in. The teachers actively engage the children in taking responsibility for their own learning. They are not only teaching them academics but also the characteristics of integrity. They show them the behaviors by being phenomenal role models. I appreciate everyone on the staff. They are helping me mold my children into the best people they can be!

    i am a new student at this school and this school has been fun. i love the students there soooooooooo much. except for 3. anyways the teachers not soo much the teachers there are push overs and dont displine the right way. and the students there gett away with alot. and there is alot of racism there. i dont recommened your child to go to this school. well its relly up to you but yea.

    This is an awful school with little to no student control. The academic statndards also are low and only set the students up for future failure. I contribute these problems primary to the social standards placed on the school by parents who fail to see the problem with the children today i.e. disrespect rude and lack of responsibility is largley to blame for the behavioral problems that add to an already pitiful learning scale. Students are promoting from this school as I am sure along with many others here in Californina due to the rediculous No-Child Left Behind. As a parent of two students at this school I have found it be below standard and largely due to the lack of parental involvement and child dicipline and state standards.

    I am a student here and i am in 7th grade A track. The teachers are only ok. one teacher that is 100% 5 stars is Ms. Frye! but the safety is below a 1 star. an ice cream truck comes everyday after school who isnt allowed to be there but the security is so poor that they dont even know that he has been coming for the last 3 months. i almost gon beat up because i didnt have 50 cents. and some teachers talk about and promote their religion way to much in class and make Atheist kids very uncomfortable and sometimes they talk directly at them. Lunch is Great! after school programs are GREAT!!! but the some teachers are bad and most are GREAT!!! principals are only ok.
