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 is a great stater for kids. My daughter loved Kinder and has thrived and learned a lot she will now be in 2nd grade. My son is now anxious to start K here this year. She has really learned a lot. The principal is involved and caring. Their are activites throughout the year to help community involvement and the kids feel connected. Communication in K was great not so great in 1st and we missed some of these activites. They learn a lot in school but could do better really focusing on small details or tutoring programs EVEN if the kids are ahead and advanced. I feel my kids could really excel if they had the chance but because of the no child left behind they said they wont advance them just for reading or help them move ahead of the other classmates which is frustrating as a parent and with a nephew who is moved to a special reading class and has advanced 3 grades for reading at a different school. We also wish the school website was up kept better with information and updates. Schedules etc. Overall we are happy with this school we were very nervous to find a good school in the Perris community but found one here at Avalon.

    This school is amazing! My daughter hated going to school until she started Kindergarten here. Now she is excited to be learning to read and can't wait to practice her sight words every night.

    Dr. Lezine Teachers and all Staff are all top notch. I cannot remember any of my elementary principal's names. However Dr. Lezine has made such a positive impact on my son & daughter that I know her name and her legacy will forever be remembered in our family. The teachers are all so top notch and really do care about the kids. It's not just a job to them it's the future of America and they are a part of making that happen. The Staff is outstanding. Library custodians caferia & office workers are incredibly friendly and help to create a positive atmosphere at Avalon. The spirit of Avalon is felt immediately. The spirit of Avalon is felt even when you call the school and the always friendly Mrs. Castellanos readily greets each caller with 'Avalon Elementary how can I make your day easier?' Avalon Elementary is definitely the 'Camelot' of Riverside County!
