Del Dios has made an incredible turnaround due to Exemplary leadership displayed by Mrs. Adkins and by the excitement displayed by the teachers to her leadership. The students are respectful to adults. The kids are excited to learn, which makes the whole environment electric. Way to go Del Dios!

Test Year: 2012
Del Dios Middle School
Escondido Union 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.
