Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    Fantastic school. The teachers are great and there is lots of parent involvement. Very clean campus and the students really seem to take pride in their school which is not often seen.
