Parent involvement great! There is alot of bias at this school based on who you are and who you know. You are either in or out.

We tried to 'work within the system' for 3 years at this school. We finally came to the conclusion that our daughter could not receive a satisfactory eductation at this institution and enrolled in the K-12 program.

Students are classified as 'smart, average or below average' and this is consistently communicated to the students. ...  Read more

Idyllwild School
Hemet 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.
