This high school is not as good as everyone thinks it is. They don't offer that much of honors or ap courses. They don't have uniforms and girls dress very inappropriately. Teachers are absolutely careless. They don't have that much of activities. I've been to many different schools and this one ...  Read more

We have been part of the Castro Valley school district for 10 years now, and I must say I am proud to say my child attends Castro Valley High School.

This school is great. There is a ton of activities and sports for students to get involved in. The teachers are great and care about the students. The classes are also challenging, and fun. The campus is clean and pretty.

My child is having a terrific learning experience as a 9th grader. I'm am thankful that she has learned to check her spelling before posting messages online. To have so many programs still in place after successive tumultuous state budgets is a testament to the oversight of the district. I only hope ...  Read more

I am so thankful that my son is currently a Junior and only has one more year at CVHS! I have 3 children, two who have already graduated from CVHS. The school was great 8-9 years ago when my daughter attended because even though there were a lot of students there were no where near the rediculus number ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
Castro Valley High School
Castro 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.
