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.

    The teachers at Garey are really cool! D i am a freshman and i'm enjoying this high school. The students on campus are really nice. I recommend this high school. At first i was scared but there was nothing to be scared about.

    I graduated From Garey in 2005. And by far I Loved that school! Teachers there like to help students out. Your counselor will help out and let you know what's going on with grades and everything else. Even after I graduated I still will help support the school since my brother then started and he played Football and he also graduated this year 2011. And we still have another brother to go. And yet will still support Garey!

    i attended Garey HIgh School after I transfered from Village Academy at Indian Hill. To be honest i enjoyed my time there than at Village. The teachers are really kind and your counselors are up to date on how the student is. My counselor used to call me out and explain to me my progress. It meant a lot to me knowing that someone who hardly knew me was interested about my grades and classes.

    I've recently moved into this School District my son has done wonderfully at Garey High. This school has come a long way. He seems to be more interested in class studies at his grades.

    I love Garey High School it's a great learning enviroment. This School is full of wonderful youth activities that help us grow in to responsible young adults. All of the staff members are very hard working and dedicated educators and their work is gladly appreciated. Keep it up Garey!

    Garey High School has been for the last few years on the rise. It is improving academically by leaps and bounds. Unfortunately though Garey is located in an area that has been plagued by violence gangs altercations etc. Even with all of these distractions the school has been able to remain strong. The school is jam-packed with an array of programs its students can join. Not just athletics but various clubs. Its classes pretty much has three levels or categories they are arranged in. There is non-college preparatory classes then follows the college-prep classes then finally the AP and honors classes. As for the AP honors classes they are at a level where students will be challenged. As for the teachers some care more than others. But the majority that I have encountered have cared deeply for their students academic status and care and wish them well in the future.

    Garey high school is a brilliant school. Garey high school has all the requirements that best for your child in other to go to college or universities.. Its academic involves college prep classes in more. Unlike teachers and staff they care about your child best needs.. Teachers don't care when a student is not involve in their class they care when everything is going all cool.. And students pay more attention in class.. Theres a lot of clubs and a lot of involvement for child needs it is a great school.. More n more this school academic is growing up in a good way....
