More than 75 percent of students at every grade level except one scored at the "proficient or advanced" level in English/language arts on the California Standards Tests (CST). At the elementary level, grades 2-5, which is before students take "course-specific" math, at least 81 percent of students at every grade level scored "proficient or advanced" in mathematics.
"With over 25,000 students to educate, this district continues to be a wonderful success story," said Marianne Splenda, district Coordinator of Assessment.
This marks the 10th year in which San Ramon Valley students in grades 2-11 participated in California's STAR testing program. In grades 2 through 8, students were tested in reading, language, spelling and mathematics. In grades 9 through 11, the test included reading, language, mathematics, history-social science, and science.
