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.

    Best School ever! If you want a school that cares about your kids education. The teachers all give their heart & soul. It's a school that your kids will feel like a big family. All My 3 Kids Went Straight To University's.

    This is a horrible school the kids easily leave the campus poor supervision and very unstructured learning environment. School is dirty and you dont know your children are failing until they send out progress reports right before report cards come out. It feels like your in the ghetto when you visit this school.

    My son has been attending Elsonore High for about a month now and he really enjoys it.He said that every one made him feel welcomed and he is now in marching band and baseball.I decided to move to Wildomar so my childreen could expeirence a differnt environment and that they did....I'm glad we are hear so far it's been a positive move.

    As a a former student I take pride on saying I am a tiger. Today society is blind in saying that test scores are what rate school education but never in any other campus that I visited did i witness a campus that cares more for it students the Elsinore High School. I am a USC student and i witnessed many of the class of 2008 attend numerous UC and Private schools through out the nation. Along with having by far the best AVID program Elsinore students are well behaved equal if not proceeding their counter parts in the valley. We cast a shadow on them because maybe a few are spanish as second language students but we never credit them for what they achieve. Tour the campus meet the student talk to the teachers you will see more then just people you will see role models.

    Elsinore was one of the best schools I ever assisted to and I would like to give special thanks to Mr. Boyle and Ms. Rukasin for the encouragement they gave me to stay in school.

    I am a previous student and I must say the best program in Associated Student Body taught by Mr. Templeton. If your kids are lost he will help them find their way. I recommend the program to everyone! And Mr. Hurst(Principal) is the best!

    I think as a whole the school has definantly improved in the last 3 years. Counseling dept does a great job in college prep.. I find that some of the teachers are not supportive of the athelete/students needs when it comes to making up assignments and seem to make it difficult for them to stay caught up on their work in order to participate in clubs/sports. The 'block schedule' which they had when my daughter was a freshman & sophomore really destroyed the good study habits my daughter had prior to entering EHS. She has struggled since. Strong Sports & Club programs and beautiful facilities for the students & atheletes.

    Great drama program. Not enough parent involvement in other areas though

    Mission High School is a great school. My son has good teachers and enjoys going their. His grades are great.

  • (10 years ago)

    This school is very good. It gets a bad rep for the area it is in. It is an academic social sports oriented school. The teachers (most of them) have been there for quite some time and work well together. I have had one daughter graduate from there and have another who is just in her first year. We are not in the district but I drive 15 miles each way to get there. The education is worth every minute I spend on the road.

    Overall I think this school is fine but I think the dress code should be enforced. Also I am real tried of the school not backing up the students. No matter what the problem is the teacher is always right. That is the wrong message to teach our children. How can we teach them right from wrong when no matter what they are always wrong.

  • (11 years ago)

    I graduated from EHS in 2000 at that time the school was ran well but I have friends who have younger siblings that aren't learning the basics. I was an average student that really didn t care about school and was failing behind a teacher suggested to my family that I be tested for learning disabilities and I was tested in the 10th grade for learning disabilities we found out that I had an audio visual processing delay. After that I was an A+ student and the school also taught me how to deal with the disability. I am in Collage right now and I am going to school for nursing I am an A student that learned to over come a disability. I never thought 5 years ago I would be a collage student more then that I never thought I would be a successful one
