Test Scores by grade


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.

    My kids attended 3rd and 6th grades in 2011. I have to say that I really enjoyed the teachers and the after-school program is great but there is a fundamental break down between their principal and the staff which trickles down to the entire well- being of the school. My 3rd grader was being bullied which was affecting her overall functioning at Monte Rio. I brought this to the attention of the Principal Ms. Schwinn (after about 10 unanswered voicemails) I was finally able to get to her by just showing up without an appointment ( in which she was very sure to be rude to me because I didn't have an appointment). When I was finally able to discuss the issue with her she was short with me and actually very flippant about the whole matter. I sought a district transfer the following year as I didn't feel Schwinn's interest was at all about the children and more about her ego.

    There has been a huge staff turnover and student enrollment has dropped. Not sure I want my child there.

    My Grandson attended pre school with Ms.Foster she and her assistent Shelly were wonderful and helped my little guy get prepared for Kindergarten. Because of them he has a great outlook of school and learning.They also helped my wife and I with tips to assist him for the future. Kudos to you ladys and thank you. The GPs.

    Both of my children attended this school unfortunately the best teachers have left in the past couple of years. Nice grounds and office staff.
