Most of these reviews appear very positive, but with all the spelling, grammar and punctuation errors, I seriously doubt the quality of education offered at this institution.

Campus is in need of repair, i'ma freshaman, rather go to Segerstrom. HOWEVER SOME teachers seam preatty good at their jobs and students are preatty nice. Counseling, AVID, and French Departments in serious need of help though.

At Godinez Fundamental, the teachers do everything possible to help there students achieve academic success. Students are presented with all the necessary tools to become great people in and out of the classroom. Students are encouraged to strive for their goals and reach their full potential. It is truly an amazing school with wonderful and dedicated staff.

This school is amazing. The teachers are wonderful and do a very good job at teaching. For the 2008-2010 school year Godinez got the highest API score in the Santa Ana District. They beat Segerstrom High School. They are doing great progress for them being a new school.

One of the best schools you can find in southern California. It's such a good school with one 3 years of being open it's tests scores are really high. And it still shows signs of improvement.

I'm a current freshman at this school, and they give me so many opportunities that are helpful for my future. The principal is just great because he always knows what's going on in every part of the school and tries to support a student as much as he can. The teachers seem sort of 'new' to this whole teaching though, although they are really fu. The school seemed kind of disorganized in the beginning, but all schools start out somewhere.

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.
