Gladstone is a great school no matter what some people say it has its problems like any other school most teachers really care about students succeding but a lot of the students just don't care and there's nothing that these teachers can do about that. I hope this new intervension bell schedule works out for them.

This school has some teachers that just don't care. I have left massages for some teachers and they don't return calls. Don't get me wrong there are a few teachers that do care about the kids and my kids do love those teachers. I love this school but they have to get most of this teachers to care.

Gladstone High School i will have to say is one of the best high schools ever. I have attended many different local high schools and none have compared to gladstone. The teachers are awesome and students are great. I have many memories at that school and i will never forget them,And the security there is strict and fun at the same time. If I could i would go back in a heart beat! Go Gladiators!

I have a freshman attending there. I wish the school was updated when it comes to technology, I can see many ways on how parents can work with teachers via email. There is so much time spent on phone tag. If parents can access class information and assigments for their child, than we would all benefit.

Gladstone High School is one of the best high school.The minute i went there everything was unique and the academic standards are second to none.The students were also very friendly ad it is certainly a great environment to raise your kids there.For people who want their kids to attend but have been convinced by other reviews do not be deeived.I say cudos to all the staff of Gladstone High School and continue to keep up the good work.

Gladstone didn't accommodate the students needs. The teachers didn't take the students seriously nor did the students take themselves seriously. Being laid back and taking the students as they come is not putting enough discipline on them. Parents need to get involved, students need to get more involved, the teachers need to be taught. I went to Gladstone and I feel that they need a better curriculum.

I have two boys that go to ghs the older one is in jrotc. I don't know the big picture but I believe that those kids don't take the class seriously. When they pratice it looks like a joke. But my son likes it I would like to see it get more serious and more parent involvement.

As a former student from GHS, I just wanted to acknowledge that Gladstone was a wonderful school. To be honest it does have its bad teachers, but I was fortunate and blessed to have had some of the best teachers of my life there at Gladstone. Gladstone's administration tried their best to make things fair for the students even though I didn't agree with a lot of there decisions; however, I still was very content and enjoyed myself and I will always have a happy high school memory!

Talk about an ORGANIZED school! My son, who is a freshman this year, came from another district. He couldn't register for classes until the first day of school. I honestly thought, oh boy, this is going to be a miserable first day of school, but, it wasn't... Everything went so smoothly, that I was so astonished! Keep up the Good Work GHS Staff!

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
