Test Scores by grade


California Standards Test (CST)

In 2012-2013 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 went here to continue my high school graduation. I had come from Milpitas High School. MHS was a great school academically but it was so large and impersonal. I had the ability - I just didn't have the support. Cal Hills was the best school that could have ever happened to me. The school may be full of rough-around-edges students but we got along just fine. There were no clearly defined cliques or any pretentious judgments from the school faculty. I graduated in 2001 and still feel it was the best decision my parents and I made. I am not a PhD Grad Student with Penn State.

    Cal Hills has a great reputation for helping students graduate. It earned a 714 STAR score which is very high for a Continuation school. The faculty and staff help students achieve. It has a excellent Special Ed program.

    Without this school I wouldn't have been able to graduate on time. I was given the second chance other faculties denied from me. With this degree I had earned I was given the principals honor roll and was asked to partake in speaking for my class of 2007 which I happily turned down as no amount of gratitude and praise could I ever show the empowerment this school has brought to me. To help me stand. To help me grow. To help me succeed.

    This is a wonderful school. Student get go much out of this school. There is an Art program. They really care about the student. The main focus is the student and their education.
