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.

    We love the principal but we dislike the kindergarten teacher who apparently got promoted to 1st grade teaching this year. Having two part time teachers is a very bad idea. Too bad we can't list her name for other parents to be aware of on great school or they won't published it. Just glad I got a chance to transfer my kids out of this school this year and out of the district because I am not within the district. My friends were not so lucky. What kind of a district that have such low enrollment that won't allow people to transfer out?

    We're very pleased with StarView. Staff is great friendly and very responsive when I have any questions. My kids love the school!

    I rated this school as average due to the fact that they still employ one of the worst kindergarten teachers. My childs teachers attendance was so bad the school should be embarrassed. One day she didn't even show up for school and the teachers didn't know what to do. For the first two weeks of school she wasn't there - very confusing for the kinds since they weren't sure who their teacher was. This teacher yells at the kids and parents when vague and incomplete instructions are given and is so unorganized I am not sure if a full curriculum is being given. During parent/teacher meetings it appears the teacher is frazzled and incapable of concentrating. The school also allows Kindergarten aged children to walk from class to class or office with no adult supervision (reported by my child). This is inexcusable. With the 2012-2013 budget cuts teachers were eliminated and I hope she was one of them however they are not replacing - the administrators decided their own person pay increases (year over year they've received) were more important then our children receiving a good education from qualified and caring teachers. Good job Star View!

    Starview is an excellent school. The teacher go above and beyond their duties. There is no other school I would have my children in.

    Star View is by far the best elementary school anyone can ever go to! The staff is nice the students turn oout great and everybody there is very optomistic. It's such a graet school.

    this school is great. parents can really get involved and teachers are extremly friendly and care a lot about our children.

    My children have attended Star View for the past 5 years. We have been very pleased with the teachers staff and parental participation. Star View is a family school and therefore people tend to work together for the better of the children. The academic programs are continuously improved upon and the extra curricular activities that are offered continue to grow. We will be sad to graduate from Star View next year but know that the children have been prepared for what is next to come. Thank you Star View!

    Star View has been a great school for my children. I love the envolvment the staff has with the children. The principal has always been there every time I needed her. Star View has worked very well with my childrens after school program at Good Shepherd. We love both schools very much!We have had nothing but a great experience at Star View.

    Great school and great teachers. My daughter has been well taken care of especially by the resource staff. She has moved up 2 grades in reading and writing and working on that growth in Speech and Language. Go there especialy if your child needs Special Ed Resources!

    I am a new parent in 2006 to the school but have had first hand experience with them through Good Shepherd Pre School and have always thought they were an outstanding school. They were just awarded for their efforts as a California Distinguished School. The principal is very hands on witht he teachers students and community.

    My son does not appreciate the music art that Star View pushes for....and thus he is not happy having to take part in music and art. He is very much into sports however Star View does not emphasize sport atleast on in 1st grade. So far the teachers are great.

  • (9 years ago)

    Great teachers aides in k-3 classes. Lots of parent volunteers. Great sports. My child has enjoyed star view very much. Principal is available for any concerns. Music for grades 4-5.
