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 have two boys at Vintage and I'm very proud of this school. Our boys are good students and work hard. The Principal is absolutely wonderful and has made a lot of great changings. But it all starts at home. Parents play a big roll in the schools. So parents need to support the school and the teachers. Vintage has great parents too! I think Vintage is one of the best schools in Napa. And with all the new changes that have been taking place. I am very happy with Vintage.

    I graduated back in 2008 and still have very fond memories of Vintage. I wasn't a very outgoing kid but I was involved in the schools choir and learned a great deal from the people involved and the teachers there. I enjoyed English the best along with choir and still believe the English teachers at Vintage are better than most I've seen in college. I would always highly recommend this school. I know not everyone loved their high school most tend to think their memories are just a horrid nightmare they are always trying to forget but I enjoyed my time there and still think it was one of the best decisions I could have made in a high school choice. High school is what you make of it and Vintage High School has a lot to offer even for people who don't like joining in.

    My daughter is on her 12th grade this year and so far they have a very good quality of teaching. We supposed to move last year but we can't do it not until our daughter finish her high school here. We know if we move her to a different school it will never be as good quality as Vintage.

    i am a freshman at vintage high and i really enjoy this school you have so much to choose from and lots of things to do and the teachers there are so caring and they take as long as you need to understand the material they are teaching.. GO CRUSHERS )

    We LOVE VHS! Our second child is a freshman and has made an amazing transition thanks in part to the great staff and LINK Crew efforts. Our oldest child graduated last June and was admitted to a top notch 4 year university. VHS did an amazing job of preparing students for the next step in their education.

    I am currently a Senior at Vintage. I love vintage and am very sad to be leaving in only a few short months. The teachers teach and disciple to the highest. It is the kids that are a big problem it seems as though kids are forgetting that teachers are people we need to respect. They talk back and disrespect by coming in late with lame excuses. I think vintage is a great school with great teachers.

    We have two teens at Vintage High and one at Napa High.First off I would have to agree that there is no cohesiveness at Vintage.There is also no rewards for good grades Napa high gave a letter to one of my kids for getting good grades where at Vintage my other recieved nothing making the honor roll.I also agree with IEP I belive after 3 years of dealing with them that there main agenda is to just pass the children whether they learned the material or not. Which doesnt do anyone any favors because then they cant pass the exit exam.We used to be very involved but one can only beat there head against the wall so many time. Thankfully both kids are seniors. I find the teachers to be supportive and very good at Vintage.

    Not enough parent-teacher communication.

    Principal is absolutely wonderful. Younger man with lots of enthusiasm great with the kids well liked supportive encouraging runs the school well relates well to kids fair disciplinarian. String orchestra class is fair...not the best opportunity for string students but satisfactory better than nothing. Good location does not seem overcrowded. Kids have many choices for classes. Not a block schedule which we like.

    As a grandparent I give Vintage HS a high score. My oldest son was a member of the first graduating class in 1973 followed by his brother in 1976. Both are successful in their chosen careers. So far 2 of my grandchildren are Vintage graduates--one will be a Junior at UC Davis in Sept. the other a sophomore at Chico State this month--both are doing well. My 3rd and last grandchild will be a freshman at Vintage HS this year and I feel sure she will also do well at Vintage! Go Crushers!

    I believe Vintage High is going thru a transition. This happens any time there is a change in Administrators. The Principal is young and can be innovative in bringing about change. I would siggest that Parents who are dissatisfied become more proactive. Thus being able to have a greater influnce on our youth. I would like to see more school spirit more parental involvement and partnerships with major businesses.

    Vintage High School lacks cohesiveness. No one knows what the other is doing. The principal is far too young and lacks authority. I wish our child had attended Napa High School instead.
