Test Scores by grade


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.

    The school is the best. The teachers are wonderful and caring. My son went there for most of the year. Wish he would have stayed. But last yr he had all F's and was always in trouble the school he was at didn't want to help him they gave up. My son has ADHD and ADD and having him go to the Academy was the last thing on my mind I didn't want him there. But I gave it a chance which was the best thing I could have done.. My son was getting A's and B's has a 2.9... Thank you Mrs P and Mrs Colman
