I have a 1st grade granddaughter at American Lakes. She has had a wonderful year. It is so vital important that parents play a role in their child's education. My granddaughter has had a wonderful 1st grade teacher, thanks to her teacher and her parents.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
