California Standards Test (CST)

In 2012-2013 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.

    If it was so easy ill change my child to a different school. Hate how we have to drop off our kids right at the gate plus there no way we can communicate with the teachers. Also I'm seeing that's theirs a big problem with the kids lunch a week ago I put money in his account I had put $40 my kid bought lunch twice and I got a text saying that they are negative $3. I also see that the aid has to do all the work to get the kids inside gate...there was this little girl crying and she ran out of te gate almost could of got hit by a car so the aid ran after her..but that moment that she went running after the little girl..since there so concern that the parent don't go pass the gate at that time that that happ who was watching the gate??.....with the aid not getting and help...and the office people are so rude.the only school in West Covina that's doing that use as pe aren't can't walk our kids to school . Can't wait until this year is over

    SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE I dropped off my son this morning and noticed children waiting outside while office employees walk past them leaving them outside in the cold I can't help but think who would take responsibility for these kids because the office staff didn't seem to care to much for them. The last comment before mine was in April 2011 and still has the same problem one aid outside at the gate.

    My son was moved to this school for 1st grade because the district decided make Wexcove Elementary a primary center for K-2nd. Luckily he has a great teacher Ms. Takata and have been improving on all his fundamentals such as reading writing and math. But this school obviously is on a learning curve and in catch-up mood. They are very reactive instead of proactive. I feel they need more help during the morning drop off of small children. There is only one aid outside at the gate and on aid in the cafeteria. They is not as much communication between the school and the parents we once received at California School. Which is now for 3rd-6th grade. I'm not sure my son will attend second grade here.

    My two children went here last year. It's a great school. I was a bit worried when I first enrolled them and saw that they were rated a 3 on here but they've gone up 2 points within the school year. Most of the staff is great the principal is really involved and knows students well. I only had a problem with one teacher. That person wasn't the greatest for my child but we've moved on.. )

    My daughter had good teachers in Kinder and 1st grade...different story in 2nd grade. I was very dissapointed. There was 0 parent/teacher involvement. I struggled hard to work with her teachers they seemed to not care if she did well or not. She ended the year with decent grades; however I am very well aware of the fact that her knowledge is below grade level...not because of her lack of effort but because it was not taught to her. Among the lessons we are learning now at home are Cursive writing Money and Time. (Lessons that I understand are usually covered in 2nd grade) It will take all summer to make sure my daughter will be ready for a real 3rd grade level.
