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 wife and I have had the pleasure of having all three of our children attend and graduate from Herbert Green Middle School. The Principal Mr. Smith and the teaching staff at Herbert Green Middle (of which there are to many great teachers to list!) have been wonderful. . Herbert Green is a place where academic and athletic expectations are set high and respect of your fellow student is the norm.It has prepared my children well for next step with one now at Cal poly SLO one currently at Union Mine High School and one bound for Union Mine next year. Herbert Green is a great place.

    Principal Tim Smith is outstanding as an principal-administrator. He has been extremely receptive to my wife and I in guiding our 13 year old son through his school. Our son has attended H-G since coming from the Bay area 3 years ago. Our son maintains a 4.0 GPA plays in band and is on the varsity basketball team. 'GATE' programs are available at H-G for those students who are motivated and want a challenge. This is an outstanding school just before their kids graduate and move onto Union Mine High School in El Dorado Ca.
