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 early start time (7 30 a.m.) is making kids sleep-deprived and crabby. An extra 45 minutes of sleep would work wonders for their personalities and coping mechanisms. I'm looking forward to the arrival of the new principal who hopefully will value parents' opinions and concerns. Teachers on the whole are doing the best they can but class size is too big for attention to individual needs of students.

    The Ukiah High School needs Help.. Children are Failing here due to a lack of Teachers and not too mention population of students to teachers.. sucks..

    I think you should have a home economics cooking class. The only thing you have for home economics is Fashion/clothing. My mom was really disapointed about that.

    I can sum up my time at Ukiah High with one word 'crazy'. While there were definitely some teachers who were challenging and hard-working for the most part the teachers cared little about their curriculum.

    Ukiah High is a great school for students to express themselves as individuals. The teachers are very supportive as well as understanding. The teachers at ukiahi have the ability to not only be your teacher but be your friend also. I highly reccomend parents to enroll their children at ukiahi.

    My son is in his Senior year and I do not have much good to say about this School. Between lack of teaching values and gang fights this school really needs Help for future Grads. The over all school is below average and should be well above average for such a small community. This just shows you how much they really care about the future of our children.
