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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    My son has attended this school for three years. He has had wonderful teachers each year. Today he started school again we walked into the class and the teacher had in the background classical music on low. It was soothing and the kids were very responsive to her welcome. I knew I had made the right choice of sending him back to this school once again. I commend the staff and principle at WW elementary. Very organized they work as a team from the office staff to the playground duties. Keep up the great work! MM

    I have taught in Snowline District for 13 years and I could always tell the kids who came from Wrightwood. Well-taught. Well-disciplined. Well-socialized. Good smart kids. The teachers are friendly the programs meet all kids' needs and the principal is wise there for kids parents and teachers.

    Like all schools in this district the focus of education seems to be catering to the mediocre (no child left behind). Unfortunately the high achievers are not challenged and the arts are left behind.

    I have four students that have attended Wrightwood for two years now. I couldn't be more pleased with their education. I have noted that the teachers are strict which is to my liking.

    My son attended Wrightwood Elementry School for 2000-2001 and part of 2001-2002. My son was held back for one year. One day in class while my son was struggling to complete an assignment on time his teacher loudly asked him 'Do you want to re-do the second grade a third time?' We did get an apology from the teacher and the principal. However we felt with that level of disregard for a child's feelings from a teacher it was best to move on.

    Our child was at WW for the first year in 2003-03. We found her teacher to be unresponsive to our attempts at keeping up communication. It was also clear that the teacher did not really 'know' our child or our child's academic ability. It was a disappointing year and we hope the 03-04 year will be an improvement.
