California Standards Test (CST)

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.

    Salvador is an amazing school. The curriculum is progressive and thought provoking. It covers every basic element of education Math Science History ... but teaches it in a way that engages the students to use their minds on every level. The teachers are dedicated skilled and genuinely love what they do. We transferred our two children out of private school to attend Salvador and it has been the best thing we have ever done for their education. They are excited to go to school and inspired to learn more everyday. What more could you ask for? They also have amazing after-school enrichment classes such as dance music art and foreign language.

    I love my sons teacher. He will not be going to Salvador next year!!! The princable & other staff are fake & not about the kids and parents just about themselves!! They are all about art and music and not about sport or being active. So if your child likes to be active do not send them here!!!!

    My son has been so excited to go to school this past year. A big thanks goes to Mrs. Cope who has structured her class to allow learning through singing writing reading etc. Thank you Salvador for making school a fun place for my son to attend.

    This school is a priceless little gem. There are only a little over 200 students so the classrooms remain small and the individual attention high. They are a 'Success for All' school. The teachers are all wonderful and keep the children highly motivated. The principal is very hands on with all of the children's activities and takes every opportunity to create possitive rewards for their successes. I highly recommend this school.
