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 great. all the teachers really care about is helping the students graduate on time. i went there in 2004-2006. I did graduate thanks to them all them who helped me. It is a great school who had a bad start in high school. For those who need to catch up in there credits and want to graduate on time. I think its a great school. I had lots of fun there and the teachers are funny too but you learn from them and they make you interested in the work not nothing boring.

    This School truly helped me turn my life around. People often mention the fact that it is a small school however that is what I loved most! I really got the attention and education that I needed and deserved.I came to pegasus as a senior with freshman credits and with alot of hard work and extra credit I still graduated on time. I will always be greatful to the remarkable teachers and staff !

    This is a wonderful school.It's because of the support the teachers gave me I was able to graduate the year I was supposed to.When I felt like giving up the teachers didn't let me they stood by me the whole way as well as all the other students.It feels like you have family here.Which is why I was able to make it I didn't want to let my family down.
