Terrible school. Students date some of the teachers right after graduation. The teachers hate their job. I attended and would never send my kids to this school.

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.
