this school is a great school. I went there last year and the teachers are very involved and helpful. My sister goes there and my little brother will be going there next year I can't wait.


Posted October 9, 2007

From day one I could feel the warmth and welcoming by the school staff at Thorman. My daughter had a very difficult time adjusting to 'kindergarten' and the patience from her teacher, the counselor, the prinicpal and office staff was remarkable. As a parent whose first child attends school, it feels good to know that I haven't been the only one to go through a situation like that and the guidance that continues being offered to me as a single parent juggling my work schedule while at the same time being a mom will always be appreciated.

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.
