I would like to see more educators involved in helping the students improve on there grades and test scores. A helping hand on students that really needs it, is a must. For the most part, No pre-teen/teenager should feel like his or her subjects like Math, English, and science are hard to understand. A student should understand his/her HW assignment with at least some ease and be able to practice it at home. If they are unable to do the HW because of the educator not being clear when disgusting it in class then how do you except them to actually finish their assignment in the first place? If some of the educators of Fillmore High School are bored of their teaching methods then why not change it up? Am not saying that the teaching methods are bad but am not saying it's good. Letting not one but several students fall behind should be an educators worst nightmare.

I liked Fillmore High. Teachers were ok, parent involvement was great. I would like to see more programs for advanced learners.

My daughter attends FHS and participates in as many honors classes as possible. Like any organization, some areas are weak, others strong, depending upon the individual teachers she's had. For such a small school, I would say that Honors/AP programs are definitely available for those that want them, but the overall quality needs to be improved. So far, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being best, I'd rate the programs in terms of preparing my daughter for college, as follows: English: 7, Mathematics:7, Foreign Language: 5, Science:7, History:8, Music: 9, Art: 8. I think the administration has a good handle on discipline and gangs are not an issue at school.I think the adminsitration doesn't do enough to get rid of the few bad teachers, although they do seem to keep most good ones. Turnover is an issue though. Hope this helps.

Concerned about high teacher turnover. Great band program. Great soccer program. Concern about if students are challenged in their studies.

Fillmore High School has provided me with a positive experience with the schoolwork, teachers, an the extracurricular activities. It may be small in size but it is very big in spirit.

Not a big school in size, but big in everything else that matters including teachers who care and most of all in importance of the students, Fillmore is big in spirit.

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.
