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.

    This school has been closed for several years. Not sure why it's still listed. And it's still closed. I'm adding junk to the end of this review because the website requires longer reviews. Isn't that special?!

    My daughter attend the special education program. The staff have been wonderful in meeting my daughter's need. The director of special services should really reassess the school and talk to the parents more in adding more aids and extra curricular activities

    My entire family loves this school. The school is like a close knit family. The teachers the pricnipal staff and parents are extremely friendly and supportive. It is wonderful to be greeted by the prinicpal by name every morning upon dropping off the kids. Parents are very involved and help out in every aspect from fundrasing to classroom activites. It is a shame that money and budgets cause this family neighborhood school to bear the states burdens and face closure or shortages. I reccomend this school to anyone who wants to feel connected to the school community.
