We had 4 kids go through Poway High. Interdistrict transfer for the last one. This school is partially responsible for the success of my 4. An awesome experience of combined 16 years experience. Fischer is amazing, loved going to school there. Demanding academics, but teachers who care and are on ...  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.
