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 have had two students attend and graduate from San G. Both graduated with high honors. The AVID program was very helpful in guiding both students with college preparation. San G. also offers a parent clinic which informs parents about the college application process and financial aid. The key to success is to be an active parent and allow your student to participate in school activities. Both of my students were very active in sports and school activities.

    This school is really great. I hear from other schools and how they have conflicts and I'm just baffled since I've never seen that here. Yeah we have problems with test scores but we're on our way up again. Teachers care about the students and the staff just want us all to succeed. One of my teachers once told me "We're here to support these students sometimes we're the only ones there to help them succeed." There is a magnificent peer leadership program and a huge number of clubs. We have the AVID program and tutoring almost every afternoon. I am the fifth out of my sisters to come here and I am the fifth who is on her way to college.

    I love this school. I barely went here my junior year and I am happy that I am going to graduate from here. This school deserves more credit! I understand that it has its problems..like every school. But this school is something else. My peers are family I love them. The people are easy to get along with and welcome everyone for the most part There exists no cliques....everyone comes together. The teachers are great though there are some that are a bit rough. The counselors..lead us in the right path.

    San Gorgonio High School has influenced the community by impacting local and distant youth around the area of the Inland Empire. With the variety of programs offered such as AVID Honors and a vast majority of different cultural and influencing programs and clubs San Gorgonio stands as one of the most agressive schools dealing with a negative community. Overall SGHS is a diverse and positve impact on both the community and educational enviorment.

    As a current San g student SENIOR C/O 09! i think the school has alot of potential. the teaching abilities are great and the teachers strive to help you academically get good grades to graduate. they insist on helping you through the process for future education. As my last year attending there i wish everyone their best and to keep up and try your best to suceed for your goal.

    The best school is the school that best matches your needs. San Gorgonio has very strong areas such as Honors/AP AVID Peer Leadership and Sports. This is great for goal orented students. But San Gorgonio's greatest strength is also its greatest weakness average students. Like every school we have our problem students--maybe too many. But our mass of regular students who are 'just trying to get through high school' serve as a rudder on a ship. They proved stability. The rare flare-ups of problems go away because of these good students get back to school after the show is over. On the other hand that same rudder pulls down the school spirit and many attempts to reach higher goals. The Peer Leaders have had much success in this effort. With the right school leadership and support this good school could be an excellent school.

    As a San G student I am very satisfied with the school! At the school I play water polo ans I am on the varsity swim team. While there is not much school spirit present we are definitely workinr on that problem. And as for the lack of after school activities there are plenty! The sports programs are great and while we may not win as a school all of the time we are usually in the top three in the league. There is also tutoring and various other activities that students can take a part in. I am a straight A student and always have been and I think that the teachers and staff directly influenced my abilities to keep my grades up!

    Something needs to be done about school lunches. There are way too many kids on both 1st and 2nd lunch.

    I graduated from San G a few years ago and found that compared with my peers in college I was less prepared. San G was a fun place to go to school with some very good teachers but the school lacked any synergy. There was very little sense of community and that fostered a sense of apathy among the student body. The school needs stronger leadership than that provided by the previous principal.

    The school academics exceed very low they do not have the curriculum that my children needed. As far as sports activities they need help in that area. there is not many choices for extracurricular activities and the parent involvement need more participattion. If any goes to college from there is a miracle.

    I am extremely impressed with the overall quality that the San Gorgonio Staff and student body has exhibited this year. Several teachers are dedicated to their students in ways that go beyond their job description. From after school activities to in-class curriculum teachers and students have come together to make our school a better place to be. As a student at San G I have seen first hand how far alittle effort can go. In an attempt to unify our school Kevin Wright (Peer Leadership and former ASB advisor) has brought students teachers principals and other community leaders together through Synergy Day Forums. (Synergy- working together to achieve more) Mike Smith (Teacher/Social Studies Department Chair)has offered his students so many opportunities to his students (myself included) outside his class to further help them reach there goals. In January he took twenty of his senior American Government students to San Fransico to participate in Harvard Model Congress (a simulation where we each took on the role of a current house member Senator Cabinet member or Supreme Court member and passed legislation). I cannot stress enough on how far our school has come. If we all keep up the good work and the positive attitudes there's no stopping us!!!
