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.

    This school is by far in my opinion one of the best small schools offered at Kearny. I entered high school not knowing where or what to do. Not only are the teachers and staff highly attentive they cater to your educational needs. AVID class is absolutely amazing as it helped me towards college. I never knew the process about college and how to approach it but they taught me tremendous information I will continue to carry. I talked to other students from the other small schools and they did not experience the great help I and my fellow peers received. I thank them highly.

    Both of my daughters attend Kearny School of International Business. They absolutely love the environment and I can't be more pleased with the principal and staff. They know every child by name the parents and when there are problems they will call home. They is a lot of communication between the educators and the parents so we know what is expected of our children. They have a wonderful program that allows children to start college right after their Sophomore year and most students graduate in January of their Senior year so they can start full time college in the Spring semester.
