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 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.

    Hillview High School is the best kept secret in Southern California! The principal and staff take a personal family like interest in the students. The students that come there are those who didn't make it at one of the other high schools however thanks to the personal interest taken in them at Hillview they become good students and excellent citizens. The transformation is almost miraculous!

    Great school! teachers are really helpful and so is the office staff. Mr. O Donoghue does a great job as a principal.

    We have to remember that not every child learns the same. Hillview is tops in this consideration adn I am proud to say that my son graduated from this school. For once in his life since leaving homeschool Devin has been able to reach his goals and is doing well in college. If given the chance to re-do this part of his life I would send him there for all 4 years of his highschool career.

    I don't know the staff members at this school personally and that is my fault. We were discouraged and tired by the time our son entered his senior year here. I can tell you that his attitude towards school changed completely. He did not want to miss school. He talked about his teachers with such high regard. We went to his graduation ceremony on Wednesday and had tears in our eyes as he accepted his diploma! They did not give up on him and he persevered. I can't thank this staff enough for their compassion and help. Well done!
