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.

    John Pendleton the principal of Wilson school is highly unqualified for this position. He lacks leadership skills to both his staff and students. His persona is misleading he seems interested in the students and staff however his only goal is how he is perceived and the glory he can get. I would never have a child go to this school bases on John Pendleton. He has been moved from another school bases on his poor performance. Shame on Tulare City Schools for keeping John Pendleton in a position of authority. Where is the character counts?

    Wilson is an amazing school. The new principal Mr. Anderson did an outstanding job in the 2006-2007 school year and we look forward to another wonderful year with him and the staff! With boundary changes for Tulare we have had to put our children into separate schools and Wilson is one we requested! The level of care attention and inspiration for the students is high! They focus on test scores in a positive way and credit children who exceed in test scores accelerated reading attendance and character counts pillars of success. And parent involvement is welcomed and appreciated and is one of the highest I have seen compared to other local schools. We love Wilson!

    I have experienced this school's principal to be extremely uneducated when it comes to the rights and needs of the special day class students. What happens to the students whose parents don't know what their child's legal rights are? More parents need to get together and discuss ways to positively advocate for their children.
