California Standards Test (CST)

In 2012-2013 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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    I follow the Facebook page to stay informed which I do not to see pictures of my kids I'll take those myself at the events they attend I don't need them posted on Facebook for strangers to see

    Wow very surprised at some of the rude comments on this page. Instead of parents complaining on this site they should attend the School Site council meetings where the academic budget is discussed. All of the money assigned to the school is reviewed and accounted for there; any concerns or questions are answered by the principal directly. Anyone who participated in the Worlds Finest Fundraiser would know the money was used for the free Winter Wonderland event offered to every Morgan student as it was printed on EVERY chocolate bar. The PTO (not PTA) meetings are printed on all school calanders that are sent home. Those meetings also discuss where funds are distributed and any future ideas for our achool.I'm very happy with the different fun events and they are usually free. I don't like to criticize how money is used since I don't volunteer and help raise money but I am very grateful for the various school volunteers.

    It baffles me to read that some of the parents actually believe PTO is responsible for school repairs. PTO can only raise money for school events field trips and materials that teachers request due to the lack of funds from our state. Repairs to the school would cost millions and the thought of PTO raising that kind of money is laughable.

    I had my children sell chocolates this year and all I see is a bunch of nothing. They sell so much and the school still looks bad. The cafeteria looks very old and smells. This is my child's first year at Morgan and up until now I am not happy. The school is understaffed and the lady at the front desk is extremely rude. A friend of mine recommended this school to me and I do not see why. Yes they have events going on but instead of wasting money on events they should raise money to make the school look better and the students to have better educational material. They have a snack bar everyday and I do not understand where that money goes to. I subscribed to their Facebook page and I never see pictures of my child I always see the same kids over and over again. I do stay inform but I thought the Facebook page belonged to the school not the PTA. All in all I am currently not happy with this school.

    I love this school for my kids I have nothing but great things to say about the teachers and staff. The Principal has been amazing and really takes time to talk to the kids and parents one on one every time my son has had an issue he's really taken the time to talk to him and understand him which means the world to me considering he has no assistant principal and needs more staff the office staff is always willing to help considering they are stretched thin and I always feel welcome to talk to them or the principal. I see the PTO really involved and I really liked the new Morgan gear the pink shirts on Wednsdays really meant a lot to me and I love that even the male staff including the Principal wear them.

    My children attend Morgan Elementary and this school is Amazing! Mr. Buckner is a great principle and the teachers and staff are very approachable. The PTO is active and enthusiastic everyday! It's so awesome to count on these PTO parents they volunteer and noticeably work really hard to bring many activities for the kids. They excel in fundraising and do it all for our kids! Grateful for these amazing Moms

    There are concerns about the PTA and one of the big reasons for it being disorganized is that this is a newly formed one. There are procedures and policies which has to be adhered from the state and slowly this is being learned. Another reason is the dedication and involvement. The PTA is trying to get parent involvement by having some type of activity that both the parent and their child can do. It will take another year or so for this to happen but it is slowly getting there. The fund raiser was a disaster but it was a start. Again there was no team effort and only one person was trying to take care of everything. If you don't like what is going on do something about it. You can make a difference!

    This school needs tons of help. The staff if friendly but friendly is not going to get our kids in college. The PTA is unorganized and does not seem to beneficial at this point. The test scores are so low I was embarrassed to claim my daughter goes here. My daughter has been fotunate to have awesome teachers here but the school over all needs help.

    I really think this school needs a lot of improvement. The PTA fundraiser was very unorganized. There really is a lack of communication between parent and teacher. I don't feel there are any activities for the children including field trips.

  • (8 years ago)

    One thing I did notice about this school is that the lunch staff have no control over the students at lunch time. Every time I go in there it looks like a zoo. Children everywhere running and very loud. I have even had my child eat in the car because it was just to crazy in there. I think they really need to address that.
