My son is in seminar. He chose this school. The teachers are wonderful and the staffs are very helpful. This school has a wide variety of people and he likes the diversity. He's also enjoying his sports program. I'm very happy with his decision.

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.
