Test Scores by grade


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.

    God Bless Mr. Dellazoppa. He got me through High School. The teacher-to-student ratio was the best you could ask for and I wouldn't be where I am today with Sky High School.

    When I attended School here Mr.Dellazoppa was the principal. In my experience it was refreashing to know everyone in the building and be part of an extended family. I really think it would be better for school systems to have a bunch of smaller schools then one large one. You get alot of one-on-one time at this school and get treated like an individual instead just a kid in a seat. There academic program is different then a normal schools but it actually helps prepare you for life after school. If you or your child is struggling with the average High School I would get on the list for Sky high.
