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.

    Fairfield is a small rural school of 60 students. The school requires a minimum of two hours per week from each family in the form of a permanent position. This means every parent should know every child and the family atmosphere of the school is unique. Students from beyond the rural area are chosen through a lottery in other words parents choose to drive out to F.S. because of its special program. The school offers a gardening cooking and science program that is well beyond district k-3 programs. The school is diverse ethnically and socioeconomically. Parents often have a very difficult time adjusting to a standard elementary school after Fairfield but kids do just fine. The teachers are especially gifted at seeing the needs of each child and adjusting curriculum and activities to meet those needs. They say Fairfield School 'Is Davis' best kept secret'. I have had children in 3 other Davis elementary schools and must say that Fairfield is special.
