Being a Senior at EHS i believe it is a great school because of its teachers. Yes every EHS student has one they dont like, but in general they are all great. The community is small, and thrieving. There may not be great cultural difference in the school, but it is still close nit. Most students get invoved with the school. Sports, and clubs are very popular that almost every student is apart of at least one. Everyone is friendly at EHS. The school may be old but it has character. Anyone can feel welcomed at EHS.

EHS has been my school for 3 years so far, and as a Senior, to say that Escalon is lacking in leadership and the ability to educate is ridiculous. The staff at this school are highly educated and passionate about what they do. They provide creative ways to teach different standards and do not discriminate whatsoever. The small town environment helps students focus and because of all the student's active involvement in the community, Escalon has become a better place due to this school. The one thing EHS has that shows how involved students are, is the amount of Spirit! This school thrives on Spirit and unification. The school has been dropping in STAR testing scores recently, but due to the high school's dedicated leadership they inspired other students to do better on their scores. EHS has been a great school for 3 years and i wouldn't go anywhere else.

As a parent and former student, I have to dissagree with the prior ratings. While some people may believe our students are being giving a great education I believe they are being short changed by not only the distrct and its lack of leadership, but the town itself. The town is so overly concerned about growing to rapidly that they have forgotten the fact that our schools have fallen behind, not ony acidemically but strutcurley as well. All of our schools are falling apart. Because we have no substancial growth in our town we have no funding for new schools or ammenities the children need to succeed. Our scores on our testing prove that. Until the town relizes that they have to grow to be able to pay and keep up in the world of higher education, our kids will fall further behind.

I went to school there and I really, really enjoyed it. The small town atmosphere was safe and, although boring, required that I use my imagination to come up with creative things to do. The education was good when I went, but most of those teachers left for various pursuits. I always thought I got a really good education when I attended EHS, but coming to college I have realized that Escalon missed out on a lot, but it is understandable since it is a small school in a small district in a small town. Part of its charm was this feature, but it also held it back in some ways. I would strongly encourage parents to become more involved and support the school, because while EHS may not be as good as larger schools, it has definite potential to be one (seeing as EHS got me to UC Davis)

This school has great school spirit, which makes it a better environment. They aren't rough or rude, they have tasteful spirit. This schoool contains well behaved students, and not many gang related problems occur here. The musical performances from the bands are phenomenal. Parental involvment is possible to increase, but it is good at where it is. There are many availability of performing arts, that your child can be involved in. Overall this is a great environment for your student to grow upon in.

EHS is retaining, and hiring some high quality teachers, especially in language arts, history, science, and foreign languages.

If kids are involved in the advanced classes they will receive one of the best educations they can receive in California.

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.
