Posted June 26, 2012

Galway ES has moved from a good school to a great one in the past two years under the dynamic leadership of a new principal Yolanda Stanislaus. Her high standards and " no excuses" expectations of staff, students, and parents have strengthened the instructional program, modeled innovative practices and more important, created a climate of respect and professionalism that is a model for other schools.

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.
