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.

    Ramon Academy Is A Good School Im Not Sure Why People Say Its A Bad School. I Was A Student At Ramon Academy & I Must Say The Staff & Teachers Are So Much Better Than Any Other School They Help & They Reach Out. In Ramon Academy I Learned Alot & It Helped Me Mature I Wasnt Alone We All Knew What It Was Like To Have People Telling Us Were Bad Cause Were At Ramon. Ramon Is Like Family
