No ...  Read more

Wow----18 of the recent glowing reviews were written on or around 10/13-15, 2009. What- did everyone sit down and do them together?? Just asking.....

Excellent administration that cares. Lots of parental involvement. Get's about 16,000 hours of parent volunteer time per year. PTA raises over $200,000 per year for programs. Great.

* 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.
