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 attended Academy of Arts and Sciences and I must say I got to really know myself and become the individual I am today as it definitely promotes being yourself. Academically however Academy does not strive to prepare students for college. Some teachers are great but most of the time I just felt like it could have been more intensive. Counselors did not expect much of us as they pretty much want you out with a high school diploma and thats it. Many kids drop out or switch schools by junior year. I would definitely recommend going somewhere else if you're looking for an academically encouraging school.
