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

    I love this school. Teachers are great principal is great. They truly care about the students and thier future

    A school is as strong as its teachers. And well Indio has a few great teachers. Teachers who make students think and discuss. As a parent I thank you; because now I have children with who I can converse. Children who have become more knowledge and have gained the ability to express their own thoughts and ideas.

    I can honestly say that attending Indio High School taught me how to be a great person. The teachers are very helpful and connect with the students in a friendly manner. I also felt safe being on campus because security and staff were always watching over students. People do not have to attend La Quinta High or Palm Springs High in order to be accepted in to a UC school. I graduated from Indio High School and I am at a UC. It is up to the students to make the choice to focus on academics!

    If I had to choose any school in the Coachella Valley Indio High School would be my first and only choice. Being an alumnus for the class of 2007 I can assure you that going to this high school has been one of the greastest learning experiences I have ever had. Every single teacher I had taught me not only the cirriculum but how to be a good person in general.

    Indio High School was not a great experience for me it was too low in their standards; however when I changed schools and went to La Quinta High School I could tell that my future was insured when I entered the IB Program and Music program. Indio was not a very good school and also dealt with a lot of immigration issues during the 2005-2006 rallies while La Quinta did not face at all. Go with La Quinta to get your child to get into schools like UCLA or USC or any UC school for that matter.

    Indio High School is the best school in the valley. Yes a few teachers are a little boring but it is the students job to take the correct classes with the best teacher to challenge themselves. The school is the best end of story.and Rudy R. is the best !

    I think Indio High School is a great school and all but I think it could use some more hard-working teachers.
