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 daughter loves this school. The principal takes a personal interest in all of the students and extra curricular activities. The teachers are amazing and so involved with their students and their success. I highly recommend Rialto Middle!

    I am a former student of Rialto middle school and I went all 3 years there. I liked it very much i have memories there that will never be erased even though they are moved the school to a new campus every time i pass by the old school I feel like I'm about to get teary. Well this school has or had some great teachers and will give students their best at teaching. I couldn't think of a better school to spend my years in and make wonderful memories like I did. Don't get me wrong this school just doesn't make memories That's not what we go to school for but it also has a nice friendly staff that teaches well and even some stay after school to help students with Homework Make-up tests etc. I REALLY loved this school -WADIM

    Rialto middle school has a great staff of enthusiastic teachers. With a large number of ELD students there is a major concentration of Language arts skills and math. Student after school activities provide a strong school to home bond. Parent envolvement is a weak area as the majority of parents are working one or two jobs. Parent envolvement in academic maters is very strong with a common feeling of the importance of school. Attendance averages are the highest in the district mirroring the importance of education.
