I used to go to this school and I feel that this is probably the best jr high.Now I go to Orange View and it seem like the students get into more trouble I think the reason for this is because the students in Alamitos feel more free so they cause less trouble.But in Orange View they seem to cause a lot more trouble because they feel like the school is to closed in and feel less free to do things and that makes them believe that if they get into trouble the teachers wouldn't mind and will let them get out of it

This school is so fun! Alamitos Intermidiate is the first school I ever went to in USA cause I came on 2011 but I feel like this is the best school I ever had. But bad the bad thing is they don't allow lockers. I had to carried my heavy books with me all 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.
