School has great education standards etc. but my gay son was bullied and taunted for being who he is, and staff, parents and students all offered to pray with him for a 'cure.' If you are happy with a very narrowly focused, narrow-minded school, this could be right for you

As a newer River Valley parent (2008-2009 school year), I have found the administration and teachers to be fabulous! I have heard the rumors of the transition of the administration and office staff from the previous years, but have no experience directly with these issues. I think the current staff ...  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.
