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 sucks. The only good thing about it is some of the teachers actually connect with the students. Other than that the staff is terrible. We haven't had a counsler who actually helped the school in a long time. The football team like never wins. Go to a better school. Everyone here is lazy and you get in trouble for anything.

    SCT has hardly any classes they offer only a few AP classes and most of the teachers are un-motivated. Some are very very involved but some just seem to loathe being there and that has an impact on the students. The facilities are old and aren't conducive to a good education. The school is severely under-funded. The sports department is entirely abysmal the facilities are laughable and decrepit. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

    I read with great interest the last students review. While I appreciate her position it is possible that she is an exception to the rule. I know that budget constraints have caused some larger class sizes this year. However SCT strives to meet the needs of all students. I would encorage this student to speak with her counselor immediately. SCT has in place several AP courses as well as opportunities to duel enroll in the local Jr. College. I know that every effort will be made by the staff and administration to meet her unique needs. The list of pros for the school are prime examples why this is a great school. Most students attending other high schools can not profess the same. Thanks again to our Principal and Staff who encourgae our students and provide opportunities for this type of critical thinking and honest opinioins.

    Kearny SCT is nothing special. That's not to say it's a horrible place to send your child but if you have another option I would take it. Pros Kearny is diverse and its student body is colorblind. The kids are mostly very kind accepting and fun. The teachers do their best to make themselves available to the students when extra help is needed.The atmosphere is very laidback safe and friendly. Cons I personally feel very unchallenged and oftentimes braindead at Kearny. The class sizes are roughly 35 some 40. The education is mediocre at best. But this is coming from a straight A student who applies herself. I'd say a student who works hard for B's or C's in another school would thrive at Kearny. Homework usually doesn't need to be turned in and if it does the deadline is days away. and that's my 2 cents ;]

    I like the way the staff is involved with the students. My daughter is in the 12th grade and is really doing well. She takes classes at Mesa College and wants to major in science and SET offers great science AP courses.

    Truely an Excellent School! The Principal is amazing and works towards the students needs. The teachers truely care about the students future. They work hard to shape the lives of the children. The school has thus far provided amazing oppertunities for students to excell in any scientific field may it be a speaker form the sports medicine field or marine biologist the oppertunites prvided are endless. By far SCT is the best small school offered at Kearny Educational Complex!
