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 has the capacity to be great. However on most days there are substitute teachers running classes. This makes it very difficult to carry out the curriculum as it was intended to be delivered...by full-time teachers.

    I'm rather disappointed with Temecula Middle School. The teachers didn't contact me when my student failed to turn in homework for weeks. And my email to the counselors let me know they had too many students and were too busy to help my child. I guess we only matter if we do sports or PTA.

    now as a freshman i can look back and say the three years at TMS were the best of my life time.

    Wonderful school my kids have improved so well. They have always had A's and B's but once they started here in 7th grade it was always a 4.0. The Principal was wonderful and the students are much cleaner than other schools. They also have many extra classes for record credits. If you where going to change your child's school I would send them here.

    The district is highly rated -- for California. This school mirrors this. They're highly rated they do well in testing but compare TMS education/students to that of an east-coast middle school and we would be sorely behind. The adminstration is only interested in accolades not constructive criticism. Concerns about teachers go unheard overlooked or teachers are justified/supported in their actions. Counselors similarly don't work to improve they support the status quo. I would like to see support of parents who ultimately know their children far better than the administration. I'd also like to see more interaction from teachers when students aren't doing well i.e. direct communication with parents weekly emails or calls etc. Students aren't mature enough to handle this on their own. I guess this would mean added responsibilities for the teachers but it is appreciated.

    This is a great school. My daughter has been in this district since kindegarden. TMS has good teachers good kids at the school in general. I can't say enough about how good all the TVS are they are the best of the best. I just wish that the district paid there teachers more for there SAT scores which are always way above any school in Ca.
