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.

    I would rate this school higher if I could. I love amistad high. this school has helped me earn my credits so easy with their helpful and caring teachers. The pricipal is an amazing person who really loves what he does.he drives from palm springs to the school every morning with these gas prices. if that isnt dedication I don't know what is. the couselors are a godsent. they truly care about helping you get the best that you can in life from suggesting scholarships for you to bring reps from colleges you are interested in to the school as speakers. again I love this school.

    I attended to amistad high school some moths ago as a student and i go to say it was a great experience it's a pretty small school which makes the staff itself be less irritable and way more involved with each of their students not like all the other big schools around. Their program helped me alot with my credit defficiency and overall it was just great! they made me fell like i was being considered as a name instead of a number like the other school i was previously attending to.

    I took over last month in Social Science here at Amistad. The staff and students are second to none. Students work individually but I incorporate interactive lessons as well. I am here as a long term substitute fully credentialed and hope to get the opportunity to remain here.

    Im currently attending amistad high school and its a really fun school. Teachers make it fun and specially the counselor ms. Halinan she's one of the sweetest persons I know. She will brighten your day. I love this school. I think everyone should attend amistad high school if you need credits. You will need to work independently but its worth it.

    I am compeled to thank Noah Bergman's teachers this year. Mrs. Jordan's unique perception of my son provoked his thinking reasoning and validated his critical thinking. The result being a healty self-esteem and interest in continuing his education. In essence a gift. Keep up the good works. Sandra Bergman
