When I went here in the 90's, I hated it. Now that I am finding High Schools for my own kids, I miss Downey. It was a well ran, well maintained school. Unlike the ones here in Texas. Miss this place, one of the best.

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.
