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.

    Woodcrest is a great junior high school. My son attended Woodcrest for two years. He had excellent teachers for math both years and is highly advanced in this area. His social studies teacher always pushed him to do his best never accepting the minimum from him. His science teacher encouraged a love of science so deep that he participate in the District science fair on his own. His English teacher in 8th grade made sure he had a great deal of experience with writing and literary analysis that will help him in high school. The administration and office staff are always friendly and helpful. They know all the students by name. My son always felt welcomed here by all staff members. In regards to comments about behavior and expulsions this school has very few expulsions compared with other junior high schools. I know parents of students at all of the other five junior highs in the district. From what I have heard the behavior at Woodcrest is better than three of them and now worse than at the other two. My only complaint is they do not have enough electives but this is due to District funding and not the school leadership.

    The new Principal Mr. Bustamante has brought a new enthusiasm to the school. He has been active in maintaining and enhancing music & sports programs at the school when all the other Junior High Schools in the district have been scaling back. The facilities are beautiful & the staff is gaining new enthusiasm under the new leadership. For the first time thanks to history teacher Mr. Ivy this school is also sending studnets on Spring Break to Washington D.C. this is also a smaller Junior High for the disctrict & therefore the staff is able to better get to know the students. Overall test scores will rise under the new leadership.

    Even though kids are in temporary buildings the quality of education is given high priority. Faculty and staff know the kids and appear to do well in keeping them motivated.
