This school is the best. My 8th grade year was so fun and I got straight A's. The teachers I got made the subject interesting and easy to learn unlike some teachers who don't care at all and just stand up in front of the class and talk. My teachers were some of the best I've ever had, they actually wanted to be there and helped you and did there job well. One of the things I liked the most was that the some of my teachers mixed it up... like instead of reading in the book the entire year, we did activities, poems and different things depending on what class to make it more fun. I went to granite hills high school, and..... not the best,, its boring... I miss my 8th grade days :(

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
