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 pregnant daughter loves the school. She was afraid to go but it has been great for her. Everyone there has been so nice and accomodating. She is also very proud of herself that she is raking up credits quickly.

    Teachers and the staff a great. They really work with the students when they need help. Plus they tie in real life situations into their lessons so the students will be ready for what lies ahead.
