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.

    I would give a very high rating to the school staff and the principal of Bridgepoint High. There really go out of their way to help the students and listen to your concerns. The small class environment works out very well. The kids can connect with their teachers. A thumbs up to Bridgepoint High.

    Caring faculty and staff make this a Continuation School with heart. I am very satisfied with the education and support my child receives at Bridgepoint. Small classes enable the teachers to have a relationship with each student. My daughter loves this school. I wish I had sent my son here.
