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 am so happy I sent my son to twin High School the other high school that was close by was just to big and he was lost in the crowd. He is so much happier now getting all A-s

    T.O. high school was a saving grace in the case of my son who was floundering in the large high school of 3000 kids overcrowded classrooms and overwhelmed teachers. At Twin Oaks we found he fit right in with the other 200 kids with classes of 10-15 and teachers who were geniunely interested in my son. The school academic requiremants and curriculim were the same as the larger H.S. but with a lot more attention given to the individual student. My son flourished in this environment of individual attention and his grades went from D's & F's to A's and B's with positive remarks on his behavior. We owe our son's graduation diploma to the staff and teachers of Twin Oaks. with Gratitude Mr. & Mrs. Robert D. Rogers.
