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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    This school is not right for my child. The teachers have failed to teach him or any other student for that matter. I do not recommend this school as it is ran terribly. This school should improve by hiring new teachers changing teaching techniques and changing the curriculum focus.

    C T English is full of itself and does many "experiments" with the core classes that have failed and left the kids falling behind.

    C.T. English is simply phenomenal a gem in the California Public school system. It and it's accompanying Elementary school (Loma Prieta) are extraordinarily well-led by a focused dedicated passionate administration and the teachers are enthusiastic committed and student-focused. High parent involvement makes it even better. C.T. is a small school and is funding-challenged like every school in the California system which can result in gaps in some extracurriculars vs a private school but a recent bond measure to provide more funding to shore up gaps from the state was passed by 75% of the voters in the district and parents go the extra mile to make up the difference. Homework level is high like it is in most middle-schools today but support is available for kids who need it. As a parent I'm excited my kids are able to attend C.T.

    This is simply a great school dedicated to preparing the kids for high school. They teach them how to study and what to study whilst building strong and respectful characters and encouraging individuality. They prefer to encourage and motivate rather than pressure and they do it so well. Kids love the staff and all are available from the excellent superintendent excellent principal and the superb dedicated staff. At what a beautiful location!

    Excellent Curriculum in Math English Science reading and writing as well as a superb PE program. My children were well prepared for Los Gatos HS.

    This school has recently completed building a complete new school which makes it very nice. It is located in a small mountain community and feeds into Los Gatos High School. Since they have hired a new superintendent the school has improved dramatically and so have the test scores. I would send my child to this school.

    C.T. English was my middle school years ago. It was truly a wonderful experience and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend. The teachers are excellent and truly care about making a difference. The small-scale environment helps students get the attention they need which is often not the case in larger schools. The administration promotes creativity in a variety of projects which helps students with the concepts they learn. Again I am lucky to have attended this school. I loved it.
