i love this school its great u could find great freindsall the teachers r nice they suppot the students the teachers stay hours in school helping and tutoring students achieve their goals . people refer hosler as a really bad school because it has a appearence. like its .people only care about the appearence.parents try to change their kids to cesar chavez just because ceasar chavez middle school because they have escalators and its a new school so all to gether it means they only love cesar chavez because its appearence. Parents should mostly care about the teachers and the education there children are getting. SINCERELY, A STUDENT

I love this school but we need to have more fun activities. The teachers are cool and fair. The only bad thing is the security guards. They need to protect more and be fair.
—Submitted by a student


Posted April 25, 2008

The Security guards have to focus on protecting the students from one another. On the day I went to register my child there was a girl fight. Since my child has been enrolled (about 8 months now) he has been kicked in the butt so hard that he had trouble sitting and has had gum stuck in his hair twice each. Forget aobut calling me 15 times a week to inform me of events that have allready passed. protect our children from themselves

I love this school is so fun and the principal mr butler is so cool. I love most of the teachers because they are not mean.

This school is not secure at all. Kids need to have more school activities such as field trips and a better education. But then again some of the teachers need to be more strict with their students. Also, the school needs to notify parents when their child is acting up.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 8, 2007

The securities need to be more gentle with the kids. The kids need more fun such as more fun activities, field trips. They is way to much rules. like the dress code.

Posted June 21, 2006

This is the first year that my son attends this school and I found that this school needs a lot of improvement. They need to offer more tutoring classes. They need to improve in there security. I got the impression that most of the teachers there are only there for the pay.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 8, 2004

This school is not so good. They have rude, lazy staff. The security men need to improve their attitudes and how they treat students. To rap this up I think it could improve dramaticly.

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.
