This school is declining fast considering that it prides itself as technology advanced. For example API growth for 2013 went down sharply to 717. Bethel High in Vallejo growth is higher than this school. Parents should look at the latest report released by California department of Education at

A very fancy school with great students who are very warm and friendly. Great kids who are well oriented and active.

Test Year: 2012
American Canyon High School
Napa Valley Unified School District
* 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.
