Honestly, I've been at this school for 2 years until deciding to transfer to a charter school. A big problem that's in the way of success for many students is how the administration and staff don't care about how students feel, especially when it comes to discipline problems.

I moved to Pleasanton relatively recently. After going to Amador Valley High School for some time, I've noticed several things. - Plenty to do. There is a plethora of classes to take, and many, many interesting clubs. There's never enough time to take a look at everything at this school. Definitely ...  Read more

Amador Valley High School
Pleasanton Unified School District
* 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.
