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.

    Lakeside Middle School has an office staff that never wants to answer the phone. There are times that the front office clerk goes to the back and keeps the front door locked. It is very difficult to communicate with the school. For working parents it is difficult to get answers. When rush over there to get there before 3 30 the front office clerk annnounces she's worked all day and is leaving for the day. That is after she never picked up the phone. Also the school does a poor job of updating their websites. Most of the links on the website are under construction for the past three years. Thus it leaves a caring parent unable to access information.

    This school is the worst school when it comes to sports for kids. There is no after school sports activity programs for kids. And as for there indoor state of the art basketball court. It'is never used for the kids in any way for sports. Only used for meeting gatherings. Talk about a waste of money!!! This school is more for the Teachers then the Students activites.

    I loved Lakeside Middle School!! I went there for all three years and I loved it! The teachers are so caring and they actually care about the students. The campus was always clean and beautiful. I really recommend this school. It has outstanding programs like G.A.T.E and AVID both of which prepare your for high school and college. Lakeside Middle School is truly a great school! )

    I've been going to Lakeide middle school for grades 6-7 and the teachers are fantastic! the new principal Mr. Flower is great.(including other staff membrs)

    This is my son's second year at Lakeside and he is very happy to be attending school there. He did excellent last year hopefully his new teachers will keep him just as focused. The school grounds are very clean and so are the class rooms. The only thing I could complain about is the traffic but thats it. They finally have the fights under control.

    I went to this school for 3 awesome years. I am rally happy to have had that experience. I was in the AVID program and it made middle school just really good for me. Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Cervantez really taught me alot about college and it made want to go even more. Also Mr. Tesheldar was the cooles t Pre-Alegebra/Alegebra teacher I ever had! He is a fun teacher and if you alwys behave and try your best you will agree too.

    I think this school is great. The teachers are very kind. My child says this is the best school in the district. It is an amazing school. I am glad my child goes there. She has gotten a lot better in school and isn't as much of a problem child as she was. We both love this school. She has great friends and a bright future thanks to that school.
