I have two children who currently attend Anderson Heights Elementary School. I am very pleased with the staff, and their dedication towards eduacating our children. The principal is commited to ensuring a positive, safe, and enriching learning environment for all of the children. My kids adore the music program. Family Reading Night is remarkable! We look forward to having it again this year, there are not enough words to show our gratitude to Mrs. Belk. I feel the only thing lacking, is parent involvement, there should be more of it. Sincerely, Gina DeGrace

I had two children attend Anderson Heights Elementary School from kindergarten on to graduation. I am very pleased with the staff, and their commitment towards education. The principal effectively illustrates a positive, safe, and enriching learning environment for all the children. The music program is outstanding! My children would come home singing. Mrs. Belk, there are not enough words I could use to show what an asset you are to this school! Family Reading night is called 'Family Fun Night' at our house, and it will always be remembered. This school is only missing more parent involvement. Thank you, Michelle Bushey

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
