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.

    My child currently attends Fremont Intermediate. I am extremely disappointed in the curriculum offered at this school. My daughter has been placed in an Algebra readiness course which prepares her for mediocrity in high school. I have tried repeatedly to have her moved into a more advanced math course but have been told that the only Honors or advanced classes are extremely impacted. I look at her coursework in math and think that it is ridiculously easy. The administration is pathetic and continues to structure an education system where racial minorities have fewer opportunities than more affluent children. I now have to prepare my child because the school will not. In order to prepare her for a rigorous college application process she will begin taking college courses during her summer before high school so that she can compete with the rest of her previous cohort in honors courses. The school needs to offer more college preparatory work so that students are not placed in the only two options of honors or standard. Honors being highly impacted. The teachers are great they do what they can with the support that they are given. Administration needs to reconsider its policies.

    I have my last son in Fremont first time in this school not doing very good right now he in is reverse he had a fail grade last year his math teacher told he was doing great with an F. I wanted to pull him out and put him another school my ex talked me into leaving him. Been working with the teachers and him to bring grades up. I well wait this year before making judgment on Fremont middle school.

    I think the school is great. The kids are getting a good education. The fights are a real problem. I maybe wrong but I think there has been at least 10 this year so far. The fights are mostly with the girls. If they could get the fighting under control it would make it an even better school. Ms. Morrison has made so many wonderful changes to the school. The grounds are beautiful.

    I've had two children who have gone to Fremont. The school was a very positive Influence on both. My oldest is special needs but grade level or above academically. It Fremont he could finally attend school without an aide. Fremont also has a great honors program. Both of my children have been enrolled in Honors math where they were gifted. I have another child coming up. I wouldn't send him anywhere but Fremont.

    In these challenging times I apprieciate the caring educators and the high level of academics for the students.

    The school in itself is good. But the kids their are terrible from time to time. More then half the class just messes around and talks during class only one or two even bother to do work. Kids get bullied their alot and the teachers don't even notice because they're too busy correcting the misbehaving kids. 45 minutes of the classes are spent sending kids to the office. It's a great school with really nice teachers who try really hard to give us the best educational expeirence possible but the kids really need an attitude adjustment. The GATE kids are treated like all that's holy there. My favorite teacher was Ms. Nolan and Mrs. Beardsly. Best teacher's there.

    New Principal Mrs. Gibson has made all the difference int he world at the school. Excellent Principal & leadership excellent GATE teachers and excellent staff. Thanks for providing my daugher with 2 years of great education which has prepared her well for the future

    Fremont is a great school for kids who are in the GATE program. The regular farmworkers kids don't have any respect for teachers material or other good students. The teachers are too busy with these kids behavior problems and have no time to teach and help the other regular kids who want to learn. thregular classes.

    If your child is a 'regular' student (not GATE) this is what your child will be exposed to here Overwhelmed counseling staff. Teachers who spend so much time on behavior management that they miss being able to teach. If your child is a GATE student the outlook is better because the GATE kids tend to be kept apart from the 'regular' kids for most of the day.

    I am very pleased with Freemont! My son is a GATE student & the teachers he has this year have shown a strong commitment to keeping him challenged - even to the point of setting up independent study programs when neccessary. I have never seen this level of commitment to student success & I highly recommend this school for any student who is either very advanced or needing extra help in order to succeed. The kids get the help & support required for being a successful student at Freemont.

    The kids are not well supervised between classes. The administrators say this is a safe school and they are fixing the problems but nothing ever improves. Some teachers seem good and caring but others turn a blind eye or worse. We deeply regret putting our kid in this school and are desperately looking for a safer alternative before something worse happens. Stay away from this school!

    Fremont in Oxanrd has an excellent program for GATE students. They go beyond higher level thinking skills into an area of study called Depth & Complexity and Content Imperatives. Also their Sp. Ed classes are superb as well. In between meaning the regular classes the school has dedicated hard working teachers who work in teams to better the education of their students. This school has almost 1400 students in only two grade levels and unfortunately the school has no gym for these kids nor does it have a full-time music/art program. In order to be an outstanding school Fremont needs more emphasis on the arts to enhance and encourage its many talented students. Also if the district built Fremont a gym not only would it serve as a fundraiser and greatly expand their extra curricular activities it would also give many of the students a place of their own after school.

    What can I say? I have had the pleasure of sending both of my children to Fremont. The teachers there are the best. From the admin. down Fremont is exemplary. Test scores cannot begin to reflect the great environment that has been displayed at this great school. This is a model for all other schools to be compared with.

    You can't begin to say enough about the staff at Fremont. They have all the bases covered- knowledgable teachers competent admin. and a student body that reflects it. My daughter will be going to high school next year and has tested into honors. I would attribute that to the staff at Fremont along with her hard work and motivation. Great school! -Richard 'Dick' Gosinia

    What a great environment for intermediate school students. The incentives for good behavior (i.e. '0' detention dances) are ingeneous. This is a school of nearly 1400 7th and 8th graders harmoniously learning together. 99% of the teachers teach in the subject they are credentialed for. Amazing! Great school! - Phil McCracken

    Simply put Fremont is amazing! Mr. Daly and Mr. Kraus are phenomenal administrators under the direction of the great Ilene Gershon! The teachers (especially the Social Studies department) are the best you will find anywhere in the state. Mr. Griffith is simply amazing when using the History Alive curriculum. My child idolizes Mr. Crowell while we sit at the dinner table. I can't imagine sending my child to a different school. Thumbs up to the teams at Fremont!

    I have 3 children at Fremont. They all love the teachers and admin. Mrs. Gershon is great! So are the Special Ed. aides like Ms. Mendoza.
