Unfortunately, Lakeview has taken a nosedive in the past 2-3 years. The teachers are still wonderful, however, some serious issues - out of their control - weigh the score down. 1) The budget disaster & huge cuts distracted the faculty and the kids have been short-chjanged. 2) No lockers, no books. Books NEVER go home. The students get copied pages of the textbook section they need, but they can't read ahead, use reference material, etc. The lack of lockers may not seem like a huge issue, but wait until you have had to pay for the gym clothes THREE times in three months. At $50 a pop, it becomes ridiculous. Would you leave your unlocked car in a high-crime area with the keys in the ignition? 30-40% of the kids who go to there are not zoned for Lakeview. There is no oversight on this crippling problem.

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.
