CUHS is a school with great pride and history. The school has an awesome band and many extra-curricular activities. The principal is great and very caring about his students. He will go the extra mile for parents also. Overall the school is great, but there needs to be a smaller student to teacher ratio. There also needs to be more tutoring opportunities for students who need it...especially in Math.

Central Union High School is an awesome school that gets the kids involved. They have a wonderful band with about 200 students that are currently getting ready for a trip to Washington DC to participate in the 65th annual memorial day parade. Our school is the best because our students are the best!!

This is the only school, that has a lot of music programs. It also has a music library for the other schools around the county to get. It has great spirit, great teachers and, people just try to make the 'SPARTAN' experience memorable.

The only good things these school has are the AVID program and their sports. In general I just have to say that beside AVID and sports, this shcool is pathetic.

My only concern with CUHS is with the counseling department and how they could allow certain individuals to treat students, parents and coworkers in such a way that they think they have all power and authority. I feel that this particular counselor has no consideration and that administration should look into whats going on. I don't think I have to mention names since this has already been an issue and since no one is looking into the goings on in a small town she'll probably get away with it. But oh well what goes around comes around for all those involved.

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 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.
