On the 9th, 10th and 11th grade exams there were high and low test scores. For example on the 11th grade Algebra II exam 0% of students passed. The state average was 15%.
On the California Exit exam the students in 10th grade that were tested excelled in both the English exam as well as the Math exam over the state averages.
