Fox is a great school with great teachers. They are able to take the elementary students that go over as 3rd graders and continue the excellent education students receive in Hughson.

This is a great school with true leadership. This school is able to do far more than expected with what the elementary school sends. The principal listens to the students and truly cares about them.

I would like to say that the teachers are very supportive of the students. I am however, disappointed in the leadership of this school and feel that there is much improvement needed.

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.
