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 went here and had a wonderful experience. Cannot wait to send my children here!

    The students are allowed to swear and threaten students at sports games without any administration intervening. They also wrote graffiti on a local high school's buildings. Is this the inner city?

    Given that this school is a "fundamental" school the level of parent involvement is awesome. The curriculum is very complete ranging from remedial classes for children who need extra help to AP classes for kids who want to be academically challenged. The teachers for the most part seem to enjoy their jobs and truly enjoy being around children. The administration is approachable and helpful. There is a tremendous selection of extracurricular activities - more than I have seen at any other high school. The block system is fantastic. I have no complaints and highly recommend this school.

    This schools leadership has been a challenge for us as parents. Each year our son has had a teacher whose only interest is in following the curriculm and leaving our son (an honor student) behind. There is no comparison of this school to a nearby HS which is very transparent on their website.

    Well i went to this school and i absoloutly hated it. The staff is so mean they totally leave you behind and if you dont catch up quick you fail! i mean i reccomend this school for extremly smrt students but for students that need some extra help on difficult stuff like me do not go there! and plus im not trying to say nothing bad but im mexican and the staff and teachers and students treated me horrible like if i was some kind of animal.? They always ignore me never help me out or nothing i finally spoke to my mom and she switched me i told her i just couldnt take it anymore and seriously i didnt learn nothing what so ever going there i didnt even want to go to school. Oh to top it theres like no african americans nor mexicans nor asians)

    Casa has been a wonderful place for my special needs student. They work well with him and his fellow students accept him unlike the other schools we have been to.

    this school has not disappointed me in ANY way. I am so pleased that this was the school our children chose to go to. Parents are involved and students are involved. casa is a great learning EXPERIENCE. thanks

    All 3 of my children graduated from Casa Roble HS. I found the teachers to be attentive knowledgeable of their subjects in control of their classrooms and good at engaging students in the learning process. The AP and Honors programs were excellent. I always smile and think fondly of this great school and the good education and friends that my kids had there.

    I graduated from Casa in 06. I thoroughly enjoyed the honors and AP program there I found it to be challenging without burning me out before even leaving for college. For those saying the teachers or staff were unresponsive I find myself surprised. I worked closely with several teachers be it through clubs or Site council and I found them always ready to listen or to lend a hand. I think Casa is a good solid start for any college. They provide materials each year that tell you what classes are required by state schools and a counseling session to try and guide you towards the right goals for college. I highly reccomend this school for your children. Also the extracurriculars really are amazing! An awesome auto shop a good FFA program and tons of art classes as well as foods and foreign languages.

    If your child must suffer thru four years at a California public school this is a good one. Many extra-curricular activities are offered. Their athletics program is top-notch. The block system is good preparation for the rigors of college. Communication with the educators is good. Overall I quite pleased with the school.

    This school is a really good school. The teachers and administration really do care for the kids. There are also a variety of classes but do not offer as many AP classes as other schools. The sports are one of our greatest strengths and our extracurricular activities are wonderful too. Parents are pretty involved. As to prep for college it's up to every individual to seek the help they may need or get into the AVID program.

  • (7 years ago)

    They teachers and staff seemed very unattentive and to not even care about my childs education. I think it can be a good school for children that are already very smart but for children that need some extra help its awful.

  • (7 years ago)

    This is a really good school. I think the block schedule helps students in many disciplines by allowing them to focus for longer periods. There are tons of activities available for the students - everything from ROTC raising animals wood shop auto shop art music and even drama. Not just sports. This school has helped prepare my son to enter a four year college.

    The quality of academic programs is okay but could be more advanced and have better AP classes ..Casa only offers 3 AP classes ..The avalibility of ex. activities is very broad which is good ..casa parents are really invovled

    While this school is considered college prepatory it fails to truly provide the resources and academic support to follow through with this title. The school lacks the appropriate counselors to aid students through the transition to college/university level studies. Many students graduate lacking the appropriate prepatory courses missing key deadlines for applications and facing the harsh realilty of year/s of remedial courses at junior colleges to 'catch up' with peers. While this school feels like a safe positive environment the acamedics leave much to be desired.

    This school failed my child in every way. the staff and teachers offer little communication or assistance in finding resources for student educational improvement. As parents we were not informed of any problems in my child's performance until he was failing most of his classes and then the info was too late in the quarter for anything to be done to improve the grades before report cards. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

  • (9 years ago)

    wow this is an A+ school. It involves students and parents at all levels. I have been so pleased to be a part of this fundamental high school. They are a down-to-earth school with so much to offer. I feel lucky to be able to send my children there.

    Casa is a wonderful school for kids that love to be educated. The block schedule helps students fit in as many academic courses as they want or need. My own daughter appreciates the block schedule because you can take up to two math classes in the same year so that you can get as far ahead as possible in high school. This school also offers many good honors classes and AP classes as well as foreign languages fine arts and sports. Although if your student does not do well moving quickly he or she might have trouble for a little while.

    Casa Roble is one of the top school in the area of Sacramento with a very good focus in academics and great opportunities for students to get involved in clubs and Extracurricular activities. Casa is athletically competitive and produces some of the brightest students in California.
