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 drive 28 miles one way for my children to come to this school. They are more relaxed and not fearful in their surrounding. Therefore their concentration and work ethics are better than ever. They both receive good grades and i fieel blessed. The overall of the school is excellent.

    I wrote the earlier review about my daughter liking the school. We are not very happy at all now and have left the school. One teacher specifically is the cause. Hope you don't have to encounter her while you're there!
