Many parents I know have had this issue. The PE department is a horrible joke, your child will run ...  Read more

This is a great school. I went there for 7th grade. For the year i was there, it was awsome. All the teachers are nice. This school is somewhat strict but not a lot, they don't go over insane. I would have kept going to this school, but i moved to Lemon Grove district, and now i'm moving to Mississippi. ...  Read more

* 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.
