This school careas about all students. Many families here are struggling to make ends meet, but that doesn't stop the students from learning. The school puts a priority on getting kids to read. They have lots of reading teachers who pull the kids out to teacher them in a small group. The principal will meet with parents, and she really gets to know all of the students. They have a great after school program. The food bank donates food for families to take home. I love this school and am glad my children go there.

Fremont has some of the best teachers in town working there. The principal may seem tough however she truly cares for the well being of each and every student at the school. The office has the best ladies in there.

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.
