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.

    Great school I attended K-8 and absolutely loved it. All of my teachers were wonderful and for a public school it is a top quality education. The class sizes are the same as a private high school. I loved the education that I received.

    I hated it. Half the teachers were horrible and half were good. I went there and had to deal with the crazy administration. They tried to make good decisions for us and change things that were already fine all of those changes were bad and caused more conflict. I didn't like most of the teachers or the kids at the school and I am incredibly happy to be in high school.

    We moved here last year and lived in this area specifically for this school district. The school has turned out to be everything we had hoped for in an education. I had three children in this school last year and they all are making great strides academically and socially. The administration and staff care about making sure the academic and emotional environment is challenging and secure. The small class size is like that of a small private school. This means that one child can throw off academic testing scores because the score of one child has a larger amount of weight on standardized testing than at other much larger schools. Having relocated several times all over the country we are extremely pleased to end up in this fabulous school district. We can't wait for the new building to be completed but the education received there is well worth the wait.

    We are so happy we our kids can go to this school. The teaching staff is gifted at their subjects energetic innovative and friendly to both students and parents. Many parents are involved in this school even in the upper grades (it is a shared K-8 campus) Class sizes are small which is a real bonus. The students are well-mannered and respectful. Students receive great academics and community education. Older students mentor the younger students in buddy classes and through the student body government. Overall it is a great school for young teens.

    The Rancho Santa Fe Middle School is an incredible journey! The teaching staff is excellent. Learning is fun teahing kids to explore think and wonder in every subject. Honors classes begining in 7th grade and also additional help for students too. Class sizes are kept small (20). The science teachers are phenomenal opening up the eyes of 13 year olds to the wonders of science is an art but I'm told when they come from this school they are well-prepared for High School level biology. Top math levels are offered; Algebra and Geometry great Columbia University writing incredible Literature classes history and physics are fun spanish.All techers are gifted in their area of expertise and it shows in the way they teach and what the students learn. Electives allow students to pursue passions and sports offer no-cut policy competition (golf tennis lacrosse soccer football x-country track volleyball etc.)

    Great teachers and parents. The admin. is heavy on staff. 2 principals assistant superintendent and a superintendent for a one school district of k-8 with under 700 kids. Many young teachers a negitive but small class size is a big plus. This year they just introduced Spanish classes for 3 months in K-4.
