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.

    Wonderful school that looks at each child as an individual and embraces all of their strengths.

    I have my two children at Strawberry Elementary School. I feel so blessed that they are there. Principal Humble the teachers and staff are a group of top notch educators. My children receive not only the best education possible from a public school but the best education around. I am also amazed at how they match the specific children's needs to the children's assigned teachers. What a beautiful school right next to Strawberry Park. It is such a calm and nurturing environment that we frequent the park and school on week ends. My children just can't get enough. Thank you Strawberry!

    I have 2 kids at Strawberry and overall we have been very impressed. The teachers are committed and work together as a team. The kids enjoy school and look forward to each day there is an emphasis on good behavior. If anything there are perhaps too many "rules."

    Academic and Athletics are top notch.

    Strawberry is a prep school. Almost everybody that goes there becomes a snobby prep in middle school and high school.

    I can't emphasize how lucky I have been as a parent to have my son at Strawberry. He previously attended another district here in SR and I pulled him out due to some horrible experiences he/we had endeured. Strawberry teachers/staff/Principal have been more than supportive in my son's education. We will never forget how much his teachers and Mr Humble have taken such a strong stand in furthering his academic goals. Thanks Strawberry!

    This is an excellent school especially if your child attended Yulupa Elementary and you were less than impressed. Strawberry is a much stronger school something we were told by an educational psychologist when we wanted to pull our son out of Yulupa. They also have a band and chorus program. Mr. Y the principal is the best! He is extremely involved in all aspects of the school. Our son was miserable at Yulupa but loves this school. If you have an advanced student Strawberry will be able to provide the challenges they need.

    I know of several families that transfer their children out of private schools to attend Strawberry once their child reaches the fourth grade. The small school district makes communication between principal and administrators a breeze. And the parents fund arts and music through a private foundation. Great programs - great school.
