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.

    Great school leadership dedicated staff and happy students. LPS College Park jumped 90 API points last year (one of only 7 schools in the State!) and is projected to increase their score again this year. So amazing things are happening at this school. Going into this next year there is very little staff turn-over and great momentum. I am a teacher this is the third school I have worked at and my favorite school so far.

    Despite Being New at this school I can comfortably say that this school is excellent in my opinion Teacher Quality is Exellent the Work given is Fairly Easy but you really learn from those simple assignments. Since I have been studying at LPS College Park I can say I am very comfortable wih the work and teachers and staff who make you feel at home and really understand what you are trying to say. Honestly This is One of the Best schools that I have attended during 2 years of High School

    Having subbed at several charter schools in the area I can comfortably say that LPS College Park is far and away the worst charter school in Oakland. Less than a mile away are schools with a semblance of a curriculum and school-like atmosphere but teaching at LPS College Park feels more like being a prison guard than a teacher. The students are out of control and many read and write at a fourth grade level but grades are high and behavior is poor and unmanaged. Sending your child to LPS College Park is a death sentence for their educational/professional future.

    Check the school's Academic Performance Index (API). The API is how the state measures and compares all schools progress and performance. True this school is in an economically disadvantaged area. They are ranked #1 for similar schools int he area. BUT their growth API for 2010 is 616. The state target for PROFICIENT is 800 with a top score of 1000. If this were a grade that's would be a D or 62%

    LPS College Park is the safest campuses in the area the East Oakland area. The campus is closed which leaves students little ability to focus on outside issues in the area. LPS curriculum is one of the best in the area with test scores out raking neighboring school. My son had attended a public school in the area and had lost interest in his academic s. He was resistant at first to attend LPS College Park but after a couple week s he gained his enthusiasm for education and is determined to attend college. All students are on a college track which is different from most schools in the area. They also focus on the whole child social and emotional as well as academic needs. I give LPS a 5 Star!
