The State of California issues a California Standards Test to students from grades two through 11 each year. The purpose of the CST is to test student's basic knowledge. Each year teachers are required to teach a certain amount of educational information to students in a variety of subjects. To determine that each student is learning and performing at an appropriate level, the CST is administered. Once your school takes the test you can find the school's CST scores online.
Go to the GreatSchools website and click on the "Find a School" link.
Click on the drop down menu and choose the city where the school is located and then choose the name of the school in that city from the next drop down menu.
Click "Go." View your school's test results for the current school year. Scores are broken down by subject: Biology/Life Sciences, English, Earth Science, Geometry, History and Algebra.
