This school has over a 50% graduation rate of students so far behind they'd have no chance in regular school. They work miracles and so far have taught my child more then they've learned in their 3 years at the other High school. They are amazing and very personal to all the students needs.

This is a good place to learn and receive the individulized help necessary for at risk students. Its the second chance that everyone deserves. Instead of dropping out, Willow Glen Plus offers solutions and much needed guidance and redirection to its students.

Posted May 18, 2006

Willow Glen Plus is the right choice for you and your child if they have little possibilities of Graduating from high school. Willow Glen Plus helped me turn a 1.0 GPA into almost a 3.0 GPA. They have some of the best teachers and counselors. They only have 40 students in total so it makes it easier for students to get the help they need.I am a graduate from here. At one point in high school I was drop out bound, but managed to get the help I always 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.

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 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.
