Great school, lots of parent involvement. Academics are challenging. There are many ways for students to be involved in the school; clubs and sports.

This school has the best librarian ever. She helps kids with reports, research and computer work. She is patient but doesn't put up with kids who aren't working on class assignments. She is respected by teachers, parents and students. Let's keep her at LHS.

Livermore High is not only great for academics, they have great clubs, sports, and afterschool activities. They have an amazing drama program and clubs range from everything to drama and gay-straight alliance to link crew and interact club. It is truly an amazing school, and I am getting so much out of it.

Livermore High is a lot like small schools were when I was growing up. LHS continues to keep it's heritage and small time feel alive, which is hard in this day and age. It is also hard for it to compete with other local schools for funding, athletics, scholastics, etc. LHS needs and deserves extra funding. My children benefitted greatly from this school.

I am an advanced student, currently enrolled in A.P. Biology, Calculus, and English. I am thoroughly pleased with my experience thus far in Livermore High. I am active in leadership and sports, and feel that I have had an amazing time here.

Strong Students and good parent support keep the school acceptable for the average student. Many students are allowed to fall between the cracks by the teachers and staff.

Great school! The teachers really seem to care about the students.

Posted November 3, 2005

The advanced classes are wonderful, teachers are full of motivation and make students feel important. Unfortunetelly, for most of the students, the lack of attention that is given is very detrimental. The administration is a joke, and many of the CORE required classes ae significantly sub standard

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.
